Combining nurture and nature in a home-based setting
My opening hours are from 8 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday. I can be flexible, however.
Hours agreed outside of these hours may be charged at a higher hourly rate.
I have a two year old Golden Retriever called Fergus. Children learn how to nurture other living things and have the opportunity to develop empathy, kindness, respectful relationships and mutual affection with animals.
As with any animal, children are never left alone with Fergus. There are facilities for both to play and rest separately and securely.
Parents can access free early years education funding (15 hours) for two, three and four year olds with childminders who are rated by Ofsted as Good or Outstanding.
Parents of children accessing hours outside of the above entitlement will be charged the normal hourly rate. Please call for details.
Healthy snacks are provided along with drinks of water or milk. Diluted fruit juice is also available at mealtimes. I provide quality waterproof dungarees, coats, gloves and wellies to ensure every child can play outside freely with enjoyment.
Parents provide all meals, nappies, wipes, baby milk, sun screen, spare clothes etc.
Main meals are available at extra cost:
Breakfast - £1 per day
Lunch - £1.50 per day
Hot main meal - £2.00 per day
Nature's kitchen open for muddy, exploratory play!
