About Us

Welcome to First Steps Childminding, my name is Julie Cartwright and I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Helston, Cornwall offering a warm welcome to children from 0 - 11 years of age. My husband George has been my assistant since 2017 on retiring from the Royal Navy and both the children and setting are benefiting from a positive male role model.


We provide a stimulating, fun, happy and secure environment for your child/children. Choosing a childminder means a smaller setting, which allows for a more one to one approach getting to know each individual child and their needs. I can provide flexibility and continuity of care allowing the child’s routine as near as possible to be a replication of that at home. This makes it easier for the child/children to settle in and for you to be happy that your values/cultural needs are being respected. I can work with other professionals and pre schools to plan for children of all ages and stages of development. 

We live close to a large park and green area which we make good use of. We visit local historical attractions and explore lots of varied outdoor natural spaces.

Please take the time to look through the pages of my website and if you would like any further information, or an informal chat please get in touch.

*We provide drop off and collection to Nansloe Academy.
