Bracknell Forest Local Directory

Fletcher, Lesley

I am an experienced OFSTED registered childminder near the Crown Wood area of Bracknell in Berkshire.

I am a member of Pacey, fully checked by the Data Bar Servise (DBS) and fully insured for public liability. I am also a registered Data Controller with the Information Commissioners Office.

I work within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and have completed Safeguarding Children courses.

I believe that all children should be given the right level of care when away from their home and family. I therefore offer the best quality and care service for children that I can in a warm and friendly environment.

Quality is important to me and this is reflected in my last three OFSTED inspections where I have been rated outstanding on all inspections.

I have a selection of references available on request.
