If you are looking for a balance between home-based childcare and a nursery, come and see what we have to offer.

The childcare practitioners at (SHLO) are mother and daughter team;

Elizabeth Salomon and Julie Sullivan. Both have Bsc (Hons) degrees and come from a long family line of childminders and nannies. Julie has 23 years of previous experience as a childminder and Elizabeth has worked with children in a variety of settings and has been a registered childminder for over 3 years.

We are based in the Fishers Green area of Stevenage. With a purpose built and recently extended nursery and a children's garden SHLO offers excellent indoor and outdoor child focused space in which children are nurtured to reach their potential.

Every day is structured to encourage new experiences and to allow children the opportunity to learn and develop their skills in the three prime areas and four specific areas of learning, as set out by the Early Years Foundation Stage. Because every child is different and unique, activities are planned around the needs and interests of the children present. Each activity is adapted to include all children at their own level. By following this strategy and including the above we will ensure we cover the seven EYFS areas of learning.

I am a home based childminder based in Symonds Green/Old Town area who lives in a non smoking environment. I live with my husband and two grown up daughters both living at home, one in full time work and the other attends Hatfield University. I have no pets.
I run a loving, homely and happy setting where all the children I care for are happy and comfortable and enjoy attending my setting.
I have lots of toys and activities available to children of all ages so they are able to learn, explore and are stimulated.
We have visits to toddler groups, childminding groups and various school runs.
In the holidays we have days out, having recently been to Paradise Wildlife Park which the children enjoyed.
I look after children ranging from 12 months to 11 years old.
I pick up from Woolenwick Infants School Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, Roebuck School Wednesday and Friday. I am also able to pick up from Woodlands Pre School.
My first aid and safe guarding are up to date.
I have been childminding for 17 years and thoroughly enjoy looking after and teaching children, watching them grow and learn and to see them move onto their next adventure, going to nursery etc.
My hours are 8am to 5.30pm but would be willing to discuss hours outside of this.
