I am an Ofsted outstanding graded childminder in Meadowfield, offering a safe, warm and exciting learning environment.

Children will be encouraged to develop their own natural curiosity and given the time to follow their own play interests. They will be able to plant vegetables, create obstacle courses, explore our natural world and mix muddy potions in our garden. We will also spend our days investigating, running, baking, singing and sharing stories, as well as taking trips to farms, woodlands and parks.

I aim to be flexible to meet parents' needs, and offer funded childcare places for eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds. If you need times earlier or later than my stated opening hours please ask and I will do my best to help.

Local Offer

Local Offer description

I welcome enquiries from families who have children with Special Needs or Disabilities. I regularly attend local training to ensure that my SEND training is up to date, and I am willing to undertake specialist training where this is necessary. I have a CACHE level 2 certificate in Understanding Autism.

I am happy to make any possible adjustments to enable me to care for children with additional needs in my home.
