Childminding that doesn’t break the bank

Here at Lauren’s Childminding, I have a firm belief that childcare should be affordable for all.

I feel that, where possible, it is important for families to have enough money to share in memorable experiences together, like holidays and meals out. These memorable moments form a key part of every child’s upbringing and provide essential bonding time with parents and children.

It is for this reason that I accept vouchers for the full 30 hours of childcare per week.
