I am registered to deliver 15 and 30 hours government funded hours ( EYE) to 2, 3 and 4 year olds.  I can drop off/pick up from Cherry Tots preschool and Cherry WWillingham primary school.

I charge for a minimum of 2 hours a day, if less than 2 hours then a fee of £8.00 is still payable.

I work closely with other childminders and childcare professionals and I'm a member of the local childminding network.

We have lots of fun both inside the setting ane around the local village.

Because I have two assistants I am able to care  for 3 under 1s.
