About Me

My name is Zoe Hardy (Tiddlypeeps Childmining) and I live in the Durrington/Goring area of Worthing. I am married and we have two children of my own aged 7 and 4 years. We also have a friendly family cat called Willow.

We live in a three-bedroomed home which has a safe, enclosed garden. We are quite lucky as we also have outdoor space which is under cover which means your child can enjoy outdoor activities at our home even when the weather is not so good!

I provide a flexible, nurturing, home-from-home childcare experience for your child. Within my setting your child will feel welcomed and cared for. I try to build a fun and enriching environment for your child to play, learn and develop in whilst away from home.
 
I work hard to build positive relationships with parents. In doing so I strive to provide a setting where you feel confident leaving your children in the knowledge that they will be safe and well cared for.

My Tiddlypeeps enjoy a range of activities with me within my home including crafting, messy play, sharing stories, singing and sensory play. In addition to this we love being out and about visiting local parks, toddler groups and of course, trips to the beach and other local interesting places.

I am a committee member of "Magic Minders" which is the Worthing Childminding Association and in April 2017 became the Secretary of Magic Minders.

My Experience

I began my childminding service - Tiddlypeeps Childminding - in January 2017. This was very much a change of career for my but one which I am really enjoying. I have a lot of experience in bringing up my own two children. Prior to working as a childminder, I taught English to speakers of other languages in a private language school and gained experience of working with children within this environment.
