I provide home based childcare and early education for minded children alongside caring for my own children aged 5 and 3 years. Our motto is Learning through Life. As such I provide a range of stimulating play activities from which children are free to choose and often take these off in their own directions, which I try to encourage as much as possible. We spend as much time as possible outdoors which may be making mud pies or 'potions' in the garden, playing on our quiet cul-de-sac (mixing with children of many ages), walking in the woods behind the house and the multiple school runs! I provide meals and snacks for children throughout the day depending on the hours they are with me, and these are included in my rates.
