Cathryn Stringer (Torquay)

Registered childminder with over 15 years child care experience. I aim to provide a fun and educational environment for children to play and learn in, allowing them to grow into happy and confident individuals. We are located in a quiet part of Torquay (Barton/St Marychurch) away from busy roads but close to public transport.

I will provide a good balance of trips to the zoo, park, beach, and time at home having fun playing and doing craft activities, puzzles, games and playing in the garden. I  love seeing the children exploring the world around them. We do lots of messy play and free play. 

I offer 2 year old funding and the universal 3 and 4 year old funding including the extended 30 hours funding. I’m also registered for the tax free childcare scheme.

If you have any questions or you’d like to arrange a visit please feel free to contact me and I will be happy to help.
