We have regular visits/outings to Southampton Common, Bassett Sports Centre, P & T groups, Soft Play Sessions, Itchen Valley, Lepe beach, parks and play areas. In school holidays we travel further afield, such as Moors Valley, Mottisfont, Hinton Ampner and many more. We meet up with other childminders regularly which gives the children the opportunity to form more friendships with children their own age in preparation of pre-school and school. We will do lots of activities such as painting, sticking and play-doh. We build, we pretend, we create, we make music, we learn, we achieve and we have lots and lots of fun. I encourage children to learn through play following their natural development cycle and helping them to prepare for pre-school and school both educationally, socially and confidently. I also follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. I love what I do and as a childminder, I was last Ofsted inspected in November 2016. I was graded as good. Facilities: Toy/play room, quiet play / Kitchen / large rear garden / car / sleeping facilities I can offer 2 and 3 year funding and am a member of the childcare voucher schemes.
This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare. Due to Covid I'm collecting children and dropping them home at the end of the day.
