About Me

*Ofsted rated GOOD*

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

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

I offer a welcoming and homely setting, ensuring the comfort, safety and happiness of all children in my care. I provide age appropriate educational resources and have my own pushchairs, high chairs and car seats for use. I also have my own 7 seater transport and a secure garden, in which we can explore outdoor activities.

A packed lunch is provided at no additional charge, along with mid morning, mid afternoon and after school snacks. Fresh water is provided throughout the day. Dairy allergies/intolerances can be catered for if required. Formula and pureéd foods are to be provided from home.

Activities and outings are planned in accordance with the EYFS, Next Steps and children's interests. This helps enable the children to reach their full potential in all development areas.

Daily Diaries are provided for children aged 9 months-4 years, detailing the days events. Observations and assessments are recorded online via Tapestry, for children aged 9 months-4 years, allowing Parents and Carers to log in, view and comment on their child's development.

Term time outings to local playgroups and soft play centres are provided at no additional charge, along with outings to our local parks. External outings to forests, adventure parks, farms and the cinema are also provided during school holidays (additional charges apply).

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

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

I hold a level 3 qualification in Early Years Care & Education.

I became an Ofsted registered Childminder in April 2015, working with children aged 9 months to 11 years.

I previously worked with children aged 1-8 years in nurserys and primary schools.

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.
