I see strive to be as flexible as possible, and to provide childcare for the hours that the family require. I have over 30 years experience in childcare and offer a relaxed, stable homely environment, where children feel safe and achieve well. They learn through play..... Training courses attended include:  Up-to-date Paediatric First Aid. Generalist and Designated Lead Child Protection/Safeguarding. SENCO trained, Level 3 Diploma in Childcare, Level 2 Food Hygiene. Ongoing CPD training, including Prevent Duty, FGM, CSE, British Values, Early Help Assessment, Loose Parts, Mathematical development. Our recent Ofsted inspection gave us an overall 'Good' grade with 'Outstanding' in Personal, Social and Emotional Development.  I endeavour to offer a stimulating environment where children can thrive. All children are treated equally and viewed on as an extension of my own family.  I provide regular feedback on your child's progress and offer a daily diary especially for under 2's to help with successful communication ie sleep, feed, and activities for the day.  I am happy to provide any information and support at all times.

All fees are subject to individual requirements and where possible an 'all in' amount is charged. This will include drinks, snacks nappies and wipes. We endeavour to make life as easy as possible for the children we care for and their families. Parents will need to provide meals and a change of clothing.  We provide draw-string bags to be kept at the setting with supplies in (this saves a bag having to be brought back and forward from the home).
