Amanda Joyce

Setting open.

Hello My name is Amanda and I am an Ofsted approved childminder, I offer child care between the hours of 7.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday. I am married with two children both girls age 14 and 18 years. I also have two cats.

I strive to provide a warm and caring home environment. I work with parents to give each child I look after the best opportunity to play learn and have fun. I like to keep active and spend time at play groups, local libraries and parks. I have a large garden with lots of fun toys to play with.

I have good experience working and caring for young children, as I previously worked at a pre-school for 4 years. Age range 1 to 4 years.

I offer pick ups from the Grange Pre-school or Southcote Primary school.

I charge £5 per hour. This does not include food so you have the flexibility and control over your child's diet. This also does not include nappies or wipes.

Please feel free to call with any further questions you may have and I will try to help.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
