Little Smiles Childcare

Ofsted & PACEY Registered Childminder Services
in Bracknell, Berkshire

Lisa Bruton

I am a fully qualified professional Ofsted registered childminder delivering childcare services to a small group of young children, of different ages from different families, in my own home in Bracknell. I am a happy mother to one daughter aged 9 years and living with my husband and our cockatiel pet. I aim to support parents to enable them to balance work and family responsibilities.

I have the following qualifications and experience:-

  • CACHE diploma in home based childcare unit 1
  • 12 Hour Emergency Paediatric first aid course
  • Safeguarding Children level 1 & 2 workshop
  • Level 2 Award in Food Safety
  • Criminal Records Bureau (CRB cleared)
  • Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY)
  • ELKAN Speech & Language Support for Under 5's
  • Quality Assured Childminding Scheme - Member of The Orchard - Bracknell Forest
  • Working with Children and Young people with Special Needs
  • Level 3 Diploma for the children & young people's workforce - Early learning & childcare pathway
  • Driving license

I regularly attend training courses to keep up to date with the best practices and procedures.

I enjoy seeing children smiling and having fun and this created my passion for providing home from home childcare. I adhere to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) nurturing children to learn and develop life skills, to their full potential whilst having lots of fun. We explore and investigate our outdoor world by going on adventures and experiencing life opportunities. I also have a lovely secure garden with a vegetable patch, playhouse, sand/ water pit and ride on toys to encourage children to play and learn through physical play.

By providing a safe and stimulating home environment which meets children's individual needs, I am able to cater indoor activities to help children feel comfortable and encourage social interaction, whilst having an educational value. For example cooking, messy play, arts /crafts, singing /dancing and reading.

I can provide nutritious hot and cold meals and I have a separate sleeping room for little ones.

I am happy to care for babies and children up to 8 years and my toys and facilities reflect this. Whether you need care for your child all day while you work or you require part time, before/after school hours, I am flexible to help you.

I am able to cover the areas of Harmans Water, Crown Wood, Bullbrooke, Forest Park, The Warren, Easthampstead, Birch Hill, Great Hollands and Ascot, in the Bracknell Forest area, in Berkshire.
