Our New Trampoline and Sandpit
Trampoline: Apart from being lots of fun, the trampoline also helps children learn to control their body movements and gain more muscle control. It also enhances co-ordination and concentration.
Sandpit: This invites participation and encourages children to make and test ideas. It stretches the children's imagination and provides a potentially soothing sensory experience.
Now that Autumn has arrived, the green leaves are slowly turning to orange and red

Last Inspection Reports
CIW TO PUBLISH CHILDMiNDER INSPECTION REPORTS ONLINE FROM 2020
Our previous inspection reports are not available online from the CIW website. From 2020 they will be published and available to the general public online (along with those for all other registered childminding settings).
CIW Overall assessment October 2017
"Children enjoy a wide range of interesting indoor and outdoor activities. They are very happy, settled and confident. The child minder promotes a healthy lifestyle and places a strong emphasis on outdoor play; part of the inspection took place outdoors. Children are very well settled and have obvious bonds of affection with the child minder. The environment in which care is given is safe and stimulating. The child minder is committed to ongoing improvement and involves both parents and children in discussions about ways to improve the service she offers. The child minder has good administrative skills and her documents and records are well organised."
