Create & Explore Childcare (Louise King)

Childminder registered with Rutland Early Years Agency (URN: RA000246)

My name is Louise and I would like to welcome you to Create & Explore Childcare. I have lived in Didcot for the past four years, with my partner Russell and our three children, Tyler, Sinead and Ivy-Grace. We live in a lovely little house, very close to St Birinus Boys School and Willowcroft Community School. We love the area in which we live, as we are within walking distance to the town centre, local parks, Leisure Centre, Didcot Wave and several shops. We live a five minute walk away from the Millennium Woods, Mowbray Fields Nature Reserve and the embankment which is a lovely countryside walk!
Here, at Create & Explore Childcare, I believe that the children are paramount, they will always be kept in the forefront of my mind and nurtured within a safe and inviting environment.
There are a variety of Children's Groups running throughout the week, which I look forward to attending with my minded children to expand our experiences and socialise with other people. Spending time outside is very important to me, whether it be an afternoon riding our bikes and scooters or a Forest School session in the woods. Creativity, imagination, exercise and fresh air will be promoted throughout every session I offer.
I believe in bringing back the magic of childhood, the curiosity and wonder. Every child is unique and will be given the opportunity to explore, imagine, to discover and to learn. I will encourage my minded children to savour the process of play, to explore areas of curiosity and spend unhurried time doing the things that make their heart sing!
