David Cain (Rachael's Childminding Services)

Rachael's Childminding Services is an OFSTED registered husband and wife partnership based in Billingham. 

We have a dedicated playroom that opens up onto a conservatory, that in turn opens up onto a fully enclosed rear garden, which has 2 gates for safety (one locked, one latched). Our house is pet-free and neither of us smoke.

We attend different groups and activities each day of the week. 

We have 2 cars, one of which is a 7-seater, so we are well equipped to take up to 9 children on days out during the school holidays. We are able to split to do age appropriate activities if needed. Previous years have seen us go to places such as Whitby, Scarborough, The Sheep Wash, Lightwater Valley, Newby Hall, Fountains Abbey, Beamish Museum, Centre For Life, Alnwick Castle, York Railway Museum, Shildon Railway Museum, Kirkleatham Hall, Adventure Valley. We also go to parks such as Ropner Park, Romano Park, Preston Park, and indoor activities such as cinema and bowling.

We accept childcare vouchers from employers and also the 2, 3 and 4 year old funded places* and the tax-free scheme (where for every £8 you pay in it's topped up to £10), as well as educational grants or bursaries.

Term-time only care is available with option for school holiday care*. We tend to take our holidays during school holiday time, for those looking for term-time only care. We usually do not take more than 6 weeks holiday a year. We always have 1 week between Christmas and New Year, the others sometimes spread out or split but also have been up to 4 weeks in a row during the school summer holidays.

We both hold NVQ level 3 certificates in childcare. Rachael has been registered with Ofsted since 2005, and David since 2006. We are both fully DBS checked, along with our eldest daughter (who is mostly away at Uni) and our youngest daughter who is still at home with us.
