Childcare is vital to supporting families and facilitating the reopening of the economy.

We must work to restore the sector to pre Covid-19 levels as quickly and safely as possible to allow parents to get back to work.

The Executive has agreed the publication of a Childcare Sector Recovery plan to get us to that point.

Key issues in that plan are:

Key worker definition: From 29th June definition of key worker will no longer apply for childcare purposes.

Quicker turn-around time for re-opening: Childcare providers who are closed should contact their HSCT Early Years Team at least a week before planning to reopen; Early Years Teams have a maximum of 3 days to respond.

No minimum or maximum capacity – play pods required: From 15 June 2020, there will be no operating restrictions in terms of minimum or maximum numbers of children for which daycare and school-age childcare settings can provide childcare. Play Pods will continue to be required, which is a means of keeping children and designated members of staff together in small groups to ensure safe practice and to minimise transmission of COVID-19. Guidance issued by DoH on 9th June will continue to apply.

Full capacity by September: Subject to medical and scientific advice, it is expected that daycare and school-age childcare settings will be working to full capacity from September 2020.


From 29 June 2020, childminders will be able to provide childcare to 4 families in their homes at one time. This could mean that childminders provide childcare to more than 4 families on any day or within any week in July. The number of families a childminder can provide childcare for will rise to 5 families in August.

Subject to medical and scientific advice, it is expected that childminders will be working to full capacity from September 2020.

We will also be discussing a financial support package next week for the childcare sector.

This provides a good roadmap for ensuring we have enough childcare in place to support families and support recovery which brings some much needed certainty.

General information

About Me: Dear Parents, Welcome to my web FB page . My name is Mrs Valentina Stefanova. I am a Registered childminder from September 2014 with a big experience in teaching and child care services. I have all the support and love from my family and I can say that I am lucky person. If you need a warm, safe and stimulating environment for your children so that they can develop personally, socially, creatively and physically to their fullest development potential please do call, e-mail or text me your request. I do offer long hours and weekends care for your loved ones. My normal working times are 7 AM- 6 PM. But I do offer out of Hours Daily services up to 9 PM. Saturday and Sunday services are open on requests. I do carry after your child as on my own ones. All children smiles on the same language! Yours have the same great smiles as mines! Aims and Objectives : My aim is to provide a nurturing childcare facility which encourages children to develop in a warm, stimulating, homely environment where they are valued as individuals. By working in partnership with each parent I can ensure that each child and their family needs are met. Ethos: Each child is valued and their well-being, development and learning are the main focus of everything I do. Admission Policy: Once you wish for me to care for your child I encourage you to visit with your child for short period of time and then to leave your child for a few hours to help him/ her to settle. I have a 4 weeks “settle in period” which we can agree at the start of the child minding agreement, during which the notice period will not be required if either party wishes to end the agreement.
