Response to COVID-19

Are you open for keyworkers children and vulnerable children? No

Are you willing to accept children from other providers? No. 

We live in the quiet village of Milton Ernest, in North Bedfordshire. We chose this area as we wanted to bring our children up with the great outdoors on our doorstep. I have been a Qualified Teacher since 2000, teaching from Early Years up to Year 2. My love for Early Years developed and I became an Early Years Specialist working for Bedford Borough Council as a Children Centre Teacher and Early Years Adviser (supporting and advising preschools, nursery’s and schools for children from birth to 5).

Being mum to my two boys is fantastic and I love to spend quality time with my family. This along with my experiences working in education has influenced my decision to become a Childminder. To combine my love of the Early Years and working with children, enabling me to create the perfect environment to nurture others. My husband is also my assistant, being able to provide a joined up approach to the care we offer.

Early Explorers Childcare is a home from home for children. We aim to provide a safe, friendly and stimulating environment where children feel comfortable, secure and valued as individuals.

We aim to provide children with continuity and emotional security, ensuring every child's diverse needs are met and making their well-being high priority.
We will be venturing out in all weathers to enjoy the outside, attending local groups and activities and exploring the big outside.

I am Ofsted registered (2017) but with over 17 years experience within childcare and schools. I have an enhanced DBS, hold a current Paediatric First Aid Certificate and all the necessary insurances (motor & public liability).

I fully include all cultures and events. We will discuss, include parents and families, visit and use multicultural resources and food.

I can cater for special diets and will work alongside the parents to provide suitable menus.

Special needs: I can cater for a variety of additional needs. Please discuss with me any requirements

A ramp can be provided into the house and the rooms are spacious.
