Space to learn
You need 3.5 square metres for each child you care for so often a modest home is big enough.
More important, is how you set up your home to make it a wonderful place for children to play and learn. We'll advise you on making your home a beautiful environment that families will love. We offer a £500 interest free loan to help you pay for some extra bits you might need.
Rhythm and routine
Young children love routine and so your days will follow a similar pattern. Out in the morning, back for lunch and naps. An afternoon activity and cosy cuddles and stories at home time.
But the places you go, the stories you'll read and the games you play will take you - and your children - on a different adventure everyday. And with kids around there's never a dull moment.
Outdoor learning will be central to your practice, making you hugely popular with parents. We'll support you in understanding how you can deliver all the same expected EYFS learning using the natural world as your classroom.
Our cities and towns are full of green spaces and we'll help you make the most of yours. Yes, there'll be rain - but that's what puddlesuits were designed for!
