A SINGLE mum has turned entrepreneur with a new business which provides flexible childcare in the comfort of your own home.

Victoria Watts, aged 34, launched Funshine Nannies in Baker Street, Weston, on April 14 and Weston mayor, Andrew Horler, officially opened the business.

Victoria, who attended Wyvern Secondary School, completed a BSc honours degree in childhood studies at the University of Bristol last year but struggled to find childcare that met her needs.

She said: "Travelling long distances for university and then work meant that before and after school, childcare either started too late or finished too early and I was either late for work or panicking about who would pick up my child when I got stuck in traffic.

Funshine Nannies provides permanent full and part-time care, flexible school, holiday and emergency cover, evening babysitting, maternity nurses or a mobile creche.
