Hi, we are Val and David, a husband and wife childminding team living in Altofts, West Yorkshire. We have 2 grown-up children of our own, a dog, a cat and a good supply of little people. I have been childminding since 1996. David left a career in engineering to work with me in 2007 .We care for children from birth to 10+ and deliver/collect from local schools and nurseries allowing siblings to spend time together, playing, creating, imagining & generally having lots of fun.

We offer friendly, family based childcare where children will feel welcome and at home. We believe that children gain confidence through a variety of experiences so our daily routines include both planned activities & self selected play. All our activities are based around the needs of the individual children we care for.

We are both NVQ Level three qualified in Childcare Learning and Development, members of the National Childminding Association and Ofsted registered and inspected. We have attended numerous childcare training courses and hold Food Safety and First Aid certificates.We are accredited to offer Free Early Years Education to 2, 3 & 4 year olds. We also hold a KIDS inclusion kitemark and have experience in working with children with Visual Impairments, Autism and Downs Syndrome.
