Great Minders

Childcare, at a moment’s notice, that your kids will love.

You’ll never need to say ‘no’ to anything again with our flexible and reliable Great Minders service. Whether it’s a much-needed night out with your other half, an emergency meeting with clients, or a family wedding you’ve been looking forward to for ages – our team of magic minders mean that you can say ‘yes’ with complete peace of mind, and without pulling in any favours.
Our amazing team of Great Minders are all part of the Practically Family crew. For night’s out, afternoons off, special days or the everyday, our Great Minders are there for your family. They’re all fully qualified, DBS-checked, first-aid trained magic makers who you can trust to care for and entertain your children. Our amazing team members are like family, there for you and completely reliable so you will never be let down at the last minute.

Each Minder comes complete with our famous entertainment kit to make each Great Minder experience, no matter how short, bags of fun for your brood. From baking to treasure hunts, crafting to adventuring, we’re a modern-day Mary Poppins service that sounds too good to be true…but isn’t! In fact, we bet your kids will have a better time than you.
