About GT Childcare and Education

Mathew and Lynne at GT Childcare and education are both childcarers registered with 'OFSTED'.

We have achieved 4 ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspection grades 

We are very hard working individuals, who are loving, caring and sensitive to the children in our care.

A quality that we think is most  important, is that we have ‘a genuine love of children' and are passionate about our job.

We offer quality, exclusive 'care and education' in aspacious detached house, with an enclosed garden, log cabin, playroom, downstairs cloakroom, conservatory and large open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen.

Not only do we play and encourage your child to flourish, we use the wider environment to teach them valuable life skills - crossing the road, going to the shops, visits to the farm, father Christmas, woods and many others as we believe outings are an integral part of our ethos and the children relish these opportunities to go and learn about the world around us, gaining first hand experiences.

We have a log cabin dedicated for older children with plenty for them to do, ranging from board games, pool table, air hockey, Wii and TV. We offer wrap around care, where we take them to school and collect them afterwards. We provide them with a hot home cooked tea, (included in the fees). We also provide care in the school holidays, if you require it.

Exclusive, quality childcare and education for children from birth to 16 years and 

now offering Free funded childcare

and education for qualifying

2 to 4-year-olds.

We are available to work Monday - Friday

To ensure the safety of the children in our care, we hold up to date First aid, food Handling and hygiene and Safeguarding children certificates.

We also have public liability insurance and relevant cover for carrying children in our car.

Outings are an integral part of our ethos and the children relish these opportunities to go and learn about the world around us, gaining first hand experiences.

As parents ourselves, we can understand the needs and anxieties you may have when leaving your children in somebody else's care. 
We, like you, want the very best for our children, confident in the knowledge that they are safe, happy and reaching their full potential.
The activities we provide, enable the children to gain rich experiences and learning opportunities as we follow the ‘Early Years foundation Stage’ (EYFS). 


I qualified as a NNEB nursery nurse in 1995, am Quality Assured and have a NVQ Level 4 in childcare learning and development.

From a nursery nurse in a nursery, I became a room leader and from there worked my way to become a manager. I have also been a nanny for several families.  Now our own 2 children are at school, childminding is my career.

I am fun loving with a good sense of humour, reliable and responsible with excellent references.


I have set up, managed and owned an 18 place day nursery, which involved adapting the premises, sourcing equipment, staff recruitment, building relationships with parents and being actively involved in the day to day carer of the children and organisation of the nursery.

I am Quality Assured  and hold a Certificate in Pre School Practice (CPP) and a level 3 diploma in working with children and young people.

Quality Assurance


Governments are demanding higher standards of quality in childcare.

Quality assurance is a way of demonstrating that the childminding service we provide has been checked and is of high quality.

Both Mathew and I are network childminders, which means we have opted to become NCA Quality Assured.

This is a rigorous process to show that we are working over and above the legal requirements for registration and committed to ongoing professional development. Our portfolios have been assessed by a qualified NCA Childminding Consultant.
