A little about us...

Beeches Child Care - opened it's Childminding door's in 1994 and we are now celebrating our 24th year offering parents and carers,  TRIPPLE 'Ofsted Outstanding' care and learning for their children. 

My name is Lisa Carey and along with my highly qualified and experienced Co-Childminders  Maxine, Melanie and Childminding Assistant's Mel, and my husband Gary proudly operate our unique 'home based childcare service' from our family home in the village of Shirwell, Nr Barnstaple in North Devon.

We focus on providing children and their parents an Outstanding Child Care Service. We look forward to working closely with you as your child grows and develops. Beeches offers a personal care arrangement with very experienced staff not only in Childcare but also in Early Years Education, Paediatric First Aid, Health and Well being.   

Key Workers role: 
From the day you carry your child in to possibly the day they walk out to start School - continuity of care between your little one and all our staff is priceless.

We shall never be a substitute for their parents but we like to think we come a possible close second as we have and could offer your family a service for possibly 7+ years or more.  

We are very happy to take children from 2 months thus promoting smaller child number's to adult ratio's (1 to 3) which in turn helps your little ones grow, develop and thrive. 

Providing for all ages...

Within our large family home, we offer Childcare placements for up to 12 children under the age of 8 years - 9 under the age of 5 years.

  • Please look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.  We would much prefer to meet you personally to discuss your personal childcare needs. We do-not post our costs as we prefer to offer you/r family a personal childcare package.
