A childminder works in their own home and the children come to you. Yay, no more commute!
But you’re not stuck in all day – far from it. You will be out and about enjoying your local area and using the natural environment as the richest possible learning space for young minds.
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.
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 is an incredible way to support children along the EYFS framework and parents will love it!
