Naturally every parent feels a little anxious, even sad the first time they leave their child with someone new. A Childminders home full of new people and unknown experiences can be daunting for any child, especially if they have never been left with anyone other than family members before or its their first time in childcare. Like all firsts, this can be a stressful, anxious time for most parents and children and this separation anxiety can affect us as much as our children, so we need to have peace of mind when we go to work. I have been a Registered Childminder for almost thirteen years and my Husband Paul has been Registered for seven years. Together we are ‘The Happy Childcare Childminding Partnership’. As parent’s we understand how difficult choosing the right child care can be and that’s what prompted us to become Childminders ourselves.  We were looking for a service thirteen years ago for our own child that we couldn’t find, so we decided to provide that service. We are both PACEY members, Registered and Inspected by the CSSIW. We both have regular DBS checks and are trained regularly in First Aid, Food Hygiene & Child Protection. We’ve also worked with Social Services to provide care and I have worked with the Cardiff Carers Network for children with one on one needs. Paul has completed his [DHC] Diploma in Home Based Childcare and I have completed I.C.P, D.C.P & E.C.P courses and hold a CACHE level 3 Certificate in Childminding Practice. I’m also a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Nutritional Therapist, Parent Coach and Counsellor with a keen passion for writing about children and parenting issues.



Our service is available Monday to Thursday 8am until 6pm & Friday 8am - 4 pm for children aged between 11 weeks to 11 years, including School holidays. We can drop off and collect children from playgroup, nursery or schools within the Cyncoed, Pentwyn, Pontprennau & Llanederyn area, Cardiff.

We offer a home- based setting where children can feel safe to relax, learn & play in a nurturing environment.                                  

Fee’s include homemade nutritionally balanced meals and snacks.

Our mission is to work alongside parents/ guardians & children, to help make the everyday parenting, childcare and children’s experience an easy, enjoyable, happy time for both parents and children. Helping to create memories to treasure for a life time.

We believe we can offer any child the foundations to grow into a happy, healthy, confident and successful person.

So, if you are looking for a personal childcare service with consistent care in a home from home based setting contact us today;
