Jarvis, Claire Suzanne

I live in the Birch Hill area. My aim as a childminder is to offer a happy, secure, and friendly home environment for the children, thus giving parents the confidence and assurance of knowing that their children are safe, cared for and happy whilst they are away. Lots of fun to be had here - trips to local parks, The Lookout. I have a good selection of toys and books and plenty of outdoor toys. We have fun at home painting, colouring and messy play. A real home from home environment Cost includes snacks/meals/drinks. Hours to suit. Ofsted - Good
