I promote healthy eating and have an allotment which the children help with the seeding, planting, picking crop and prepare dishes from these.

Donna and my childminder meet up regularly and do activities together, I often pick up from Donna's setting. Her dedication to her job has always overwhelmed me, she is always so flexible and willing. Donna is very enthusiatic about getting different toys and activities - making sessions varied and interesting; she is always prepared to give it her all and then some!
