What we do

My name is Lorena, I am a childminder and mother of one. I care for children in my modest home, where I live with my husband, grandmother, son, dog and cat.

I aim to provide a home-away-from-home experience for your child and work in partnership with you to meet their needs. I look after my son at the same time as other children, and like any parent I want the best for him, as well as for the children I care for. Ultimately I want you to have the peace of mind that your little one is being cared for with all the tender care and respect that they would receive at home.

I am registered with CIW to care for up to 7 children, but to keep service personal, I keep these numbers to a minimum. I provide a day service and a pick up service from local schools.
