“My girls aged 2 and 3 have been coming here since they were young and are so happy. Gilly is brilliant, they do lots of activities throughout the day including learning through play. They also go on outings to the park or the museum and sometimes the Honeyfarm. She also gets them outside as much as possible. I was apprehensive about leaving both the girls for the first time but Gilly was so understanding and we did it really gradually with me staying and playing! Gilly has children of all ages which has really helped the girls with their social development. I would definitely recommend Gillys Helping Hands!”
My name is Gilly and I am an experienced, qualified, Ofsted registered childminder providing a professional childcare service. We also run a professional mobile creche for events and weddings across the South West.
At Gilly's Helping Hands we provide quality childcare for children, from babies to teenagers. We are able to care for nine children under the age of 5 when working with my assistants, Karen, John and Ben. We are all CRB. checked with paediatric first aid training. In addition, Karen and I both hold Level 3 childcare qualifications and Ben is completing his Level 2 qualification.
We have a designated playroom, packed full of toys which are easily accessible to children - all designed to encourage children's independence and self- selection play. Outside we have a safe, large enclosed play area allowing children to run free for fresh air and fun.
We open from 8am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday; earlier or later times can be arranged if required.
We provide free nursery education for 3 and 4 year olds for a maximum of 15 hours per week during term time. We are also registered with the 2gether scheme providing free childcare for 2 year olds whose families meet the criteria.
Our competitive childcare fees include all drinks, meals, snacks and outings to toddler groups and soft play areas.
We pride ourselves on having a house full of happy children - you're welcome to come and visit us, please just call to make an appointment to ensure we're at home.
