I’m Elaine and I live with my husband Ian and son Charlie. We have lived In Sedgefield since 2001. I have been a quality assured Ofsted Registered Childmnder and early years provider, since 2010. My last inspection I was awarded a ‘GOOD’, with outstanding areas for my safeguarding, caring, attention and well being for my children.
My highest priority is for the safety, happiness & individual attention, but also offering them lots of opportunities, to interact and play with other children of various ages. My main aim is to encourage and enable the children to develop and learn, so I can be assured, that I am giving them, the best possible start in life. I love the outdoors, so the children get lots of opportunity to experience their natural environment, so they can explore the world around them. I offer free childcare for eligible 2 year olds, and all 3/4 years olds.
