My Experience

I registered and started MISSYMOO MINDERS childminding in 2006 we will be celebrating our 14th birthday on the 21st april 2020 .

We have slowly grown over the years and decided to make achange and move into a space where the kids could enjoy a larger area .So 5 years ago we decided to bbuild a designated LOG CABIN 30ft by 18ft to play in . this makes us a unique setting for our children which is set out for them it offers everything they could need. We have experience of twins . Young babies children aged birth to 18yrs ,adhd,dispraxia.

With a large garden and decked area and a well established log cabin our play space is not only unique its set up by the children for them incorporating thier ideas .

it has running water ,toilet faclities and small kitchenette.

a comfy sofa to chill out on and every activties that children could want.

we are quite traditional in how we play

eg lego,drawing,modelling,hamma beads ,nautral toys .

We cater for children from 4 months upto 8yrs .

at missymoo minders we aims to provide a warm and nurturing environment where children can learn, socialise and have fun. missymoo minders is different to other settings as it works as a small setting of only 7 to 9 children per day session. Here, your child will receive close adult care and attention.

Our vision is to create a “home from home’ experience within a stimulating environment where children can socialise and learn from each other. Children will be able to play in our purpose-built cabin and large garden. It has been suggested by many experts that children who are able to play freely and are able to feel secure enough to immerse in deep concentration has positive impact on later academic success.

We have children on our books at the moment all using a variety of hours from 1 day to full time. full year care or term time only.I have a great selection of toys and activaties from babies to 8yrs from craft to fancy dress i aim to give new experiences we are trying a more child led approach and have recently completed a course on IN THE MOMENT PLANNING by anna ephgrave alowing us to do activties that follow the child's interest some times working on the spur of the moment using the childrens ideas from making a den's to a mud pies . We also offer wrap around care cover for CLAPGATE and SHARP LANE primary school i work with 2 assistant at any one time who are all fully dbs checked and 1st aided some qualified to level 2 .

I went to visit Helens setting after she came to pick me and my baby son up to come and have a look around. I thought it was really nice of her to offer to pick us up as i would be needing the pick up and drop off aspect of her services.

Her home was lovely and big with a great play room for the kids. there was plenty for them to do, see and learn. The 2 children she was looking after at the time were very lovely kids and seemed content which i think is important.
Helen was very welcoming and just being around her i can tell she loves children!

Overall i would recommend Helen to people looking for a warm caring and safe environment for their children
