Chafeys Childminders

I have been registered since 1995, and have previously worked in my own home with other childminders or assistants since 2001. I have gradually cut down and I now work mostly on my own, my husband is registered as an assistant so can cover if I need up to 2 hours off. I am open up to 45 weeks a year. We close in the Christmas holidays, February half tern, the first week of the Easter holidays and the first 2 weeks of the summer holidays. Open 2nd week of Easter, May and October half terms and 4 weeks in the summer. No charge for time off in the school holidays with notice, 50% fees for time off term time. See our Facebook page ''Chafeys Childminders'' for more information and photos.

Service Details

Vacancy information
Vacancy for a child age 2 - 4 from September 2021. I would prefer a child to be here 3 - 4 full days a week as I want to keep to only having up to 4 children on role. I offer flexible care so if you book for 3 full days you can pay for the 4th day at normal rate if needed occasionally or swap days without extra fees.
£5.25 per Hour
Cost variations
Under 5''s: £5.25 per hour. No charge for time off in school holidays with notice. School age children in the holidays: £4.25 per hour. Trips and activities included. Only siblings of younger children already in and previous children during the holidays. Temporarily closed due to being unable to work. I am hoping to be back by September 2021.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

SEN up to the age of 2 as additional funding is not available to childminders. I have experience with children with ASD. My home is on a hill so lots of steps down to the garden.
