Horner, Lorraine

I am a very experienced Nursery Nurse offering daycare in my own home. Funded places are available. I offer a lovely family environment enabling children to learn at their own pace, enjoying a variety of activities from crafts to stories, home corner, construction, music, puzzles, games, good quality toys and a large garden with a messy area. We visit the Living Rain Forest, Whoosh, toddler groups, parks, farms,  The children also have an opportunity to look after pets. a rabbit, a cat, and a friendly dog.  Access to pets is a supervised activity, the dog is kept in a separate room during the day and children help feed and can stroke the rabbit. I have 30 years experience and have 4 grown up children of my own.
