About the employer

We currently operate in a Central Prestwich location, with good transport links, close to motorway junction; out of a semidetached house. We have a fully enclosed, large rear garden space to provide a safe and secure environment for your little ones. We are two fully qualified level 3 ex Nursery Nurses Anna/Louise having over 10 years of experience working with children at different ages in large busy environment. We have decided to move to childminding as we both felt that we would like to provide more one to one care in smaller groups. We both hope that this dual approach gives yourself as parents/careers and your children the holistic approach offered by us two. The setting also comes with resident animals (Cat and Dog).
