Ace Chalcroft childminders

Last updated: 15/06/2023

I am an Ofsted registered childminder, and I have been registered for over 21 years. My last Ofsted inspection I was graded good in all areas.  I am fun, bubbly, kind, caring, flexible and extremely reliable. I offer a fun family environment to all children. We enjoy going to local baby & toddler groups, music groups, creative & messy play, baking, fancy dress, role play and more. We have a secure, fully enclosed rear garden with trampoline, ride on toys, slide and other toys. I also have a quite, air conditioned room for nap time and am happy to provide healthy snacks and meals if required to. I work closely alongside parents, achieving continuity through learning, play and development. On my last inspection from Ofsted, I was awarded a GOOD rating throughout our criteria of working practices and services we provide. We collect from local schools in Thacham and Cold Ash areas. I have completed the Minding Your Own Business course, for childminders which is run by the local council. I  also have the CACHE level 3 in early years and childcare qualification. I am a  member of NCMA. Ive also worked for social services for children with special needs.

New additions to my setting are a large tree house, home corner and large climbing frame, and a mud kitchen. We also grow fruit and vegetables so children learn about where food comes from. please arrange to view my setting and meet myself and my family.


Children have daily diaries and nappy’s and breakfast/lunch is included in prices...
