Brenda's Busy Little Bees

Desborough Childminder

We have tried to cover the most common hours requested in my fees structure however if you have an additional needs and requests I am more than happy to discuss these with you to enable you to gain the childcare you need and your child deserves

For children 8 years and over arrangements can be made for my service to be a base for them after school, enabling them to have a cooked meal, somewhere to come when they wish but still retain their independence of walking home and 'stopping off' at the park for that game of football, or catch-up with their friends



the only things that you pay extra for are:

Groups, classes, extra curricular activities you wish your child to take part in and I take them to during your booked hours (please note my normal fees will still also apply)

Occasional day trips such as the zoo, theme park. These trips will be optional and arranged will in advance and charges will only be made to cover the entrance cost of your child
