Nicola Ayres-Lawson, OFSTED Registered Childminder

Description

I pride myself on a happy safe and friendly environment which is stimulating and secure, allowing children to learn through play, song, movement and exploration.

I have 3 children of my own (all girls aged 5, 7 & 17). I have paediatric experience during Adult Nurse training, and through various courses and experiences I had through a 26 years career as a Qualified Nurse prior to childminding since 2011.

I have a secure garden with play equipment & a fruit/vegetable growing area. I visit local parks, Graves and Millhouses. I attend 2 local playgroups, the library & playcentres. In the summer we go further afield on trips for days out.  

I prepare activities for children's play & personal development including a wide variety of arts, crafts and messy play. I have tactile play resources such as sand, water & soil. I also have 2 medium size dogs, 2 cats and 2 chickens.
