Kay Hartburn - Childminder

We visit local toddler groups, play park and go walking in the woods as well as the local area. We visit a soft play area in term time each week or we sometimes visit a farm or other days out.


I offer a good selection of craft activities that I theme to aid learning with a monthly theme. We sing songs, read books, I have puzzles and of course general play.

I have an enclosed garden with a wendy house/castle/slide where I have a play kitchen and food for the children to play with. There is a computer & iPad for the children to use under my supervision.

I prepare and cook all of the meals & snacks so everything is fresh and home cooked. I have two play spaces indoors so for those children that want quiet time I have the space. I also have a bedroom for any children that need daytime sleeps. This bedroom is for those children only and will not have to share with anyone else.

Notes

I live in a 4 bedroom home in a village outside of Bedford. It has a walled, enclosed garden with awnings for shade in the summer and gives us extra play space when it is raining so we can still get outside.

I have one main playroom where the children can eat and play when inside, a summer room that has over 400 books, games and puzzles as well as other toys. I also have a craft room that I have dedicated to one on one special time, for crafts, messy play and homework for the older children.

I have given over one of the double bedrooms for the babies to sleep in. All rooms have security cameras so I can monitor children sleeping or if someone wants to sit and read while others do an activity.
