  • "Claire and her team are just fabulous. Both my children love attending. My children do so many activities and look forward to going. Having a baby in Lockdown was tough and I was so worried about my little one starting and how he would be after very little social interaction, now he runs in without even a goodbye because he is so happy there. I would not hesitate to recommend suffolk childcare agency"

  • I am a childminder from Milton Keynes, registered under SCA since October 2022. Generally, SCA is a wonderful Agency to work with. It has a great support team that brought me from the scratch to the level I am today. For instance, the CEO, Claire Chapman is always available to respond speedily to any queries or challenges one might be confronted with. In fact, SCA team is very friendly and offers great learning support to beginners in childminding business. Subsequently, I have developed great confidence as a childminder.

  • For me, as a newly register childminder, as I only register since June this year, the registration process it was easy, as I felt that I have all the support that I need, and all my queries were address really quickly. Knowing that I have the agency staff always ready to help me, helps to become a better childminder and to become confident in my role.

  • I joined SCA 4 years ago after feeling completely overwhelmed by the registration process of becoming an Ofsted childminder. I instantly felt at ease and supported from my first phone call with Claire. The registration process was thorough all the same, but so much faster and less daunting with the personal touch that SCA can give. SCA continue to support my role as a childminder with regular contact, Support groups, training and they are always at the end of the phone when you need to speak to someone. Working on your own can be difficult but you are not alone with SCA! My childminding business has thrived over the years I have been registered with SCA, they are thorough and committed to keeping the highest standard of childminders and support us to achieve this high quality of care and education in our settings. This year I was graded Outstanding in my last inspection from a Good. I thank SCA for all their support and assistance that helped me to achieve this highest possible recognition.

  • I am grateful to SCA Team Members, especially to Claire Chapman. I was looking for someone to help me to become a childminder, I have got in touch with SCA, and they have made everything very easy by guiding me accurately and providing the helpful information's. Claire and her team members are very friendly, Experienced, Knowledgeable and they have given me all the support I needed throughout the application process. Before I got in touch with SCA I spoke Ofsted & couple of other agencies unfortunately I didn't get full guidance, than I have spoken to Clare Chapman from SCA l loved her explanation, and motivation which made easy to get help From SCA. I would Highly recommend Suffolk Childcare Agency. 

    Childminder from Manchester

  • I have been with SCA for two years now, I chose an agency as I had never worked for myself before and needed extra support that Ofsted could not offer. I rang a few agencies but SCA was the most helpful and friendly when I was deciding.
    They have helped every step of the way, I can call anytime about anything I need support with. They have really helped grow my business and confidence with not only my childminding but personal life as well. It's like a safety net, when you just need a chat or advice on something. It also feels like part of a team rather than being a lone worker.
    I would recommend SCA to anyone wanting to go into childminding and I have no regrets in choosing this way for my business.
