Purple Stars really cares about the families we work with

Locally based it is important for us to get to know our families, building up long lasting working relationships through trust, reliability and reassurance when providing exceptional child care. 

We understand that many parents have concerns about leaving their children with a child carer for the first time,  however, we love children and  have chosen the child care profession because we are passionate about it. You will find that your Purple Stars child carer will be friendly and caring as well as highly experienced and well qualified  and will put you at ease. 

Evenings , Weekends, School Holidays and Weekend Days

We specialise in providing evening child care. However there are occasions whereby we can also provide ad hoc day care during the week, weekends and in the school holidays. The child care only takes place in the family's own home.

We can care for children with special needs!

With a wealth of  special needs experience and training (from teaching in special education to fostering children with special needs), your child will have exceptional care. We are experienced in Autistic Spectrum Conditions, learning difficulties, physical disabilities, sensory impairments and medical conditions such as severe allergies (where an epi pen may be required),  epilepsy (where buccal midazolam may be required) and with children requiring gastrostomy feeds.

Your Purple Stars child carer has been thoroughly checked

Your Purple Stars child carer is a holder of a fully enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, which has replaced the CRB and ISA ), first aid, excellent references and keeps their knowledge current within the areas of child care and continually ensures that they have the skills and the necessary paper work.
