I have a passion for childcare and encouraging development as they grow.
Working with children is something I have wanted to do from a very young age. I worked for Mencap with children with additional needs for a number of years as well as being a dental nurse.
After juggling childcare for my own son whilst trying to work full time, I know how important it is to find outstanding quality childcare for your children, I aim to provide a setting that both children and parents will love and enjoy.
The playhouse offers a caring home from home environment, whilst following the curriculum of the EYFS. Our home is warm and welcoming, your child will have full access to the living room, dining room, playroom, and self-contained gardens. As well as access to the kitchen area when helping with cooking and baking. My father sometimes volunteers he is also Paediatric and safeguard trained.
Child-led and free play is encouraged we will have themed activities throughout the year which the children will be encouraged to participate in but it is not essential. Use of the great outdoors is encouraged and I aim to get out and about daily in all weathers.
I offer flexible opening hours but primarily my setting is open between 7am-6pm, if you require care outside of these hours don't hesitate to ask.
