I have three children of my own aged 12, 17 and 5 years and we live in a cul-de-sac in a quiet village with a small garden. We have the use of a 7-seater car and make regular trips to local toddler groups including Clanfield, Carterton and Witney. I only use the ground floor of my property for childminding so that my own children have their own space.
I do not have a specific room for childminding as I like the children to think of it as a home from home. The children become part of the family. I will also take little ones on normal day to day trips on occasions, like shopping or visiting with me and use this as a learning activity.
We have one shihtzu dog called Maisy. She tends to sleep under that table most of the day. She has use of the back garden. While childminding uses the front garden.
