Emily Simpson, Sunshine Childcare
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

Coronavirus status: Closed - COVID-19

My name is Emily Simpson, I have a BA (Hons) Childhood and Youth Studies and have been working with children for more than sixteen years in schools,nurseries and at Nanclerdra Pre school as the manager. I am a qualified nanny and registered childminder, with experience of all age ranges.

 I offer flexible childcare to meet parent's needs, including early morning, evenings, Saturdays and nursery pickups.

I live in a spacious house in the heart of St Ives, five minutes away from Porthmeor and Porthgwidden beaches. These outdoor spaces are used for playing & learning in all weathers!

I have a daughter at university and two miniature poodles, we use natural outdoor spaces lots of the time. Children can experience homely family childcare alongside stimulating, planned educational opportunities.

In the day time we play and learn on the beach, visit local libraries, Paradise park, Toddler Tate and  parks. I can pick up from local nurseries and schools.

I also do nanny work at the child's house and babysitting if needed, please contact me for more information.
