Child Minders in the Mapperley Area

We have created this article to help you find childcare to suit your needs. It is apparent that many followers of Mapperley People often ask about availability of child-minders.

The list has been compiled from an appeal to registered childminders in the area. We have used the information they provided to us. Where possible we have included the schools that they cover.

We hope this information is useful. If it needs improvement or changes, please let us know. It is a basic list that we have compiled and we have limited each person to 2 lines of text. It is also in no particular order. Don’t forget, child-minders need to be registered. More information can be found on these links



It is also worth noting there Safe Circle Sitters helps parents find qualified childcare professionals for evening babysitting. All sitters have been vetted and interviewed in person and offer a ‘5 star service across Nottinghamshire’. Parents can log in and view their local sitters and contact, make bookings and secure payments all via the website – https://safecircle.com.  

We also have Victoria Green who is available for casual babysitting if anyone ever needs help with childcare. I’m a qualified teacher so have a valid DBS and can provide references. Victoria lives in Mapperley. I don’t drive but am happily able to use public transport. Telephone 07720932017

Many thanks
