Eric Hall is my husband and full time childminding assistant. Eric holds a role within the setting as Attention Hillingdon co-ordinator, a programme for which we are accredited providers. Eric also holds a current paediatric first aid qualification and has extensive additional needs experience.


We have two children of our own, our daughter Eleanor  and son George who are both currently studying at university. Eleanor and George have undergone DBS checks and are subscribed to the DBS update service.

Location

We operate our child minding practice from our own home, a large semi detached house in Hillingdon , Middlesex, UB10 9NA area -within five-ten minutes walk from Hillingdon station . 


Easy off-street parking is available for parents collecting and dropping off children.

What childminding means to us...

Shortly after our daughter Eleanor was born. Joanne took the personal decision to stay at home and look after Eleanor full time, (and her brother George a few years later).


Little did we know then how much the business would come to mean to us.

We are  passionate about providing the very best level of care and learning to the children in our care, ensuring an excellent start to life. This dedication has seen our minded children succeed in their education, with many earlier children now studying at top universities. and beyond.
