About Me

*Ofsted rated GOOD* ( June 2017 inspection )

Hi, I'm Cherie. Welcome to Hunny Bunny's Childcare!

I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder based in Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. I am fully insured, Paediatric First Aid trained and a registered member of PACEY.

I offer a welcoming and nurturing 'home from home' setting, ensuring the comfort, safety and well-being of all children in my care.

Activities and outings are fun, educational and planned in accordance with the EYFS and children's ages, abilities and interests. This encourages active participation and enables the children to reach their full potential in all development areas.

Snacks are provided at no additional charge, along with fresh water throughout the day (supplement charge applies to 30 Funded Hours). Packed lunches, formula and pureéd food are to be provided from home.

Term time outings to local playgroups and soft play centres are provided at no additional charge. We also enjoy exploring our local parks. External outings provided during school holidays (additional charges apply).

Daily Diary sheets are provided for under 5's, detailing the events of the day. Observations and photos are recorded online via Tapestry for under 5's, allowing Parents and Carers to view and comment on their child's progress.

I have my own 7 seater transport with groups 0-3 child car seats available. Other equipment is readily available, including pushchairs, highchairs and age appropriate resources. I also have a secure garden with outdoor resources for use.

I network with other childminders in the local area and we work with each other to provide emergency/holiday cover, if and when required.

Cash payments, Standing Orders, Bank Transfers, Childcare Vouchers, Bursaries, Tax Free childcare payments and Funded Hours are all accepted.

My boys are currently with Cherie for two weeks as my regular child minder is away. She also covers some dates that my child minder can't do and is very flexible.
Cherie and her home (and 'Ollie Cat'!) are very warm and welcoming. My boys love it there and always come home happy and full of stories of what they have been doing. Cherie provides lots of varied activities in her beautiful home and takes them to stimulating places such as the cinema and Wheelgate.
I would highly recommend Cherie and Hunny Bunnys to anyone and feel very lucky to have her as our emergency care!

My daughter attended Hunny Bunny's childcare for just over 2 years prior to her starting full time school. She absolutely loved her time with Cherie.
Cherie is kind and caring and I felt confident leaving my daughter in her care. Cherie was always adaptable to our needs. I would highly recommend her as a childmimder..

I have been using Cherie for nearly 6 months now and found her to be extremely friendly and professional. I was initially worried about leaving my children with anyone as I had never left them before and my 3 year old daughter was extremely shy however within 5 minutes of meeting Cherie my daughter felt comfortable and didn't want to leave. She now can't wait to go to Cherie's and has grown in confidence. My 1 year old son is also happy to go and now doesn't even make a fuss when I leave him. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder.
