Rachael Cain (Rachael's Childminding Services)

Work together as a husband and wife partnership both Ofsted registered.  

We attend different groups & activities each day of the week (please see additional info). Our house is pet-free and neither of us smoke.

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 now away most of the time at Uni), our youngest daughter is still at home with us (still school age)

We live in a large house on Wolviston Court, with 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)

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

We accept childcare vouchers from employers and also the 2 / 3&4 year old funded places (subject to spaces) and the tax-free scheme (where for every £8 you pay in it's topped upto £10), as well as educational grants / bursaries. Term-time only care available with option for school holiday care (when available). We tend to take our holidays during school holiday time, for those looking for term-time only care, and we usually do not take more than 6 weeks holiday a year, one week is always between Christmas & New Year, the others sometimes spread out / split but also have been upto 4 weeks in a row during the school summer holidays
