SETTING

I offer quality childcare in a caring home environment that is educational and fun.

My home is a 4 bedroom detached house a short walk from Locking Primary and Pre-School and we have regular trips to the village playground on the way back from school. We have a dedicated playroom, open plan space with dining area for meals activities and homework.

There are lots of resources to support learning and development of children in the EYFS, these are easily accessible and labelled with pictures and words. ICT equipment for children to enjoy games, the internet and to use for homework. A variety of educational toys/games, as well as lots of books and dvds.

The garden is a safe and secure area with plenty of outdoor games/toys and ride on toys available. There is a wonderful area to play with sand, mud and water and an outdoor wooden kitchen and playhouse.

We're an animal loving family and have a dog and cats. Rory is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, known to be a very loving and affectionate dog. We specifically chose a breed that is friendly and loves people, he is good with children of all ages and has been around them since he was a little puppy.

Pets are good companions for children, especially for shy boys and girls. They give children the chance to learn how to treat and look after others, our setting is ideal for children who are not able to have pets at home themselves.
