About Abbey


"Having worked in a nursery for just over 3 years, I graduated from assisting in the baby room to lead practitioner in the toddler room. It was during my time at the nursery that I achieved an NVQ Level 3 in Childcare.


In 2014, I decided to branch out on my own so I could offer parents an alternative to the more structured routine of a nursery. At the beginning of 2014, I completed the course offered by Cheshire East Council to become a childminder.


During my time at the nursery I gained the experience expected by Ofsted to cover the EYFS in a learning yet playful manner."



About Yvonne


"I trained as a childminder in 2014 and received my Ofsted certificate in September 2014. Before becoming a childminder, I worked full time as an accounts payable manager. I now work alongside Abbey full time.


Myself, husband David and son Gaz, were delighted to help Abbey setup her childcare business working from home".
