Daisychain Childminding  offers an extensive Childminding service, covering
both  full- and part-time needs.
We also collect and drop off children from and to school. We provide two
meals a day where required. As well as satisfying the 14 National
standards set by Ofsted (bottom), we have comprehensive policies on all
of the subjects below, available upon request and presented in booklet
form to all parents prior to signing the contract. Each child also has their
own unique photo diary and development record which makes a very special
keepsake. We monitor your child’s progress on a weekly basis.  Each child
has a file for observational records, developmental progress records, work
books and some examples of their work; these are available for you to
see at all times and will be presented to you when your child starts school.
