Hi. I am a cm. I have a beautiful garden (large but tiered) but not very child friendly. I have a very small patio area which has steep steps that lead to my lawn area. It means I can't have my back door open as I have to watch my minded children and escort them down the garden all the time. I desperatly want a decking area (closed off) so I am able to allow the children to go outside in a secured area. But wondered if I could claim this on my expenses. I would'nt be doing it otherwise. My own children are 6 and 9 so its not for their beneift. Hope this makes sense! Any help would be greatly received.
When Ofsted visited earlier in the year, they asked my to add a gate at the bottom of the steps and a fence at the top of the patio - which I have done. But the patio is tiny and there is no where for the kids to play with trucks or bikes. I would love to have a secured area for them to go and have the freedom they want. I think I am going to go ahead and start getting quotes as to how much it will cost. But wondered if I could get help as this is beneficial to my business.
