Childcare by Caroline

My home setting is a warm, welcoming, nurturing and educational setting for children from birth to 5 years old. I provide flexible hours of care including all year round, school term time only and school holidays. 

About me

I am 38 years old and live near Norbreck Castle with my husband, John and two children, Dexter, 6 years old and Daisy, 5 years old. We also have two dogs, Major and Murphy, both aged 8 years old.

I am originally from London but have lived in various parts of the UK as John was in the Royal Air Force. John and I have been married for 14 years and relocated to the area when John left the military and started a new job at BAE.

My setting

I offer a loving home from home environment, I love nothing more than seeing happy smiley faces having fun, exploring and learning through play. I follow the Early years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) to ensure that each individual child’s developmental needs are met. 

I have a large open plan living/dining area where children are free to play. My garden is a safe, fully enclosed area, consisting of artificial grass area and decking area, so is accessible to children all year round. Where possible I promote napping in the fresh air, but I also have quiet sleeping facilities inside and monitoring equipment. 

I have a wide variety of toys, games and books available to the children at all times. I also undertake activities such as baking, painting, singing and dancing etc… which is also encouraged but participation is not essential. I attend local baby groups, caterpillar music and tumble tots weekly. All outings are included in my daily rate, unless otherwise stated.

Opening Hours

I offer a very flexible service to accommodate the needs of your family. Primarily, I work between 7.45am-5.30pm but care outside of these hours can be arranged. Please contact me to discuss your individual requirements.

I appreciate how busy family and working life can be. I therefore am happy to assist where possible; taking deliveries on your behalf when previously arranged, picking up essentials such as bread or milk. If your plans change at short notice, I will always try to accommodate your child on a non-contractual day.

Other notes



Breakfast, lunch and snacks are offered to all children that I care for and are included with no extra cost.

The majority of meals are homemade with fresh and high quality ingredients. If your child has any special requests or dietary requirements, including food allergies, these will of course be factored in to their diet. 

Babies who are bottle fed or weaning will be accommodated, please discuss with me.
