I've been a childminder since 2001. I work with my wife Paula who is also a registered childminder and an assistant.
We have two daughters aged 12 years & 16 years (2017).
We have dedicated the whole of our home to the children in our care which enables us to provide lots of space and a variety of different activities such as role play, home corner, arts and crafts etc. to suit different ages and abilities at any one time.
We have a house rabbit called Snow who is very friendly and used to be petted. Children often take him for a walk around our garden on his lead.
We have a large enclosed garden with a covered all weather area which children can access every day. Children really enjoy playing in the sand, water and mud kitchen as well as all of the ride on toys, swings and slides etc.
We regularly visit play groups, play centres, parks and in the holidays we organise trips to the coast, zoos and local woods etc.
We accept Free Early Learning Funding (free places for 2, 3 & 4 year olds) for up to 30 hours per week
We regularly attend training courses and workshops to keep our knowledge up-to-date. We offer a home-from-home environment where children can come to learn and play.
