I offer a home-from-home service with a flexible approach to take into account each child's individual needs.

Please see below for examples of the childcare services that I can provide. 

  • Available hours: 7am to 7pm - Monday to Friday, plus possibility of occasional overnights.

  • Term time only, with some school holiday weeks available by prior arrangement (see here for a list of local holiday clubs).

  • Full or part time childcare for babies, toddlers, preschool kids and school children up to 11 years old.

  • Before, during and after school care.

  • School pick-ups and drop-offs from Plaxtol Primary School, and Plaxtol Nursery School.

  • Combined care and drop-off/collection from local nursery/relative/etc.

The above are typical types of care I can provide, but I am not limited to these. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your individual requirements.


It may be possible to drop-off/collect from clubs.


Examples include:

  • Rainbows/Brownies 

  • Beavers/Cubs 

  • Tigers Gymnastics

  • Bushido Judo (Plaxtol School Only)

It may also be possible to have tutors or music teachers visit. 

If you are interested in this service, please feel free to contact me to discuss your individual requirements.



Our standard fees are as follows:

  • £7.50 per child per full or part hour, including the same for overnight stays and emergency childcare.

  • £1 for breakfast, £1.50 for lunch, £2.50 for dinner, snack included in hourly fee.

No charge whilst child is at pre-school or school, but three hour minimum charge for after-school care and five hour minimum charge for all other care.

Snacks, mileage and activity costs included, unless additional charge for activities or special days out by prior arrangement with parents.

We accept funded hours, but as the rate paid by the government is so low, we ask for a voluntary £3.50 per hour to cover activities, outings and consumables.

We also accept payments from all the main childcare schemes. For further details, please see here.
