Welcome to Tiny Footprint Outdoor Explorers! I am a registered, experienced and qualified childminder and a member of the Forest Childcare Association.
My name is Racheal and I run Tiny Footprint Outdoor Explorers.
I have over 20 years’ worth of experience in looking after children from birth to late teens and have also been lucky enough to work in the education sector where I was able to support their learning and encourage them to grow and develop.
I co-childmind with my partner, and we also have assistants, so there are usually three adults looking after the children at any one time. We are in the process of completing qualifications with the Forest School Association so that we can become FSA Forest School Providers in the future and have just secured a 200ft overgrown outdoor space to develop the children's love of the outdoors.
Exciting Times Ahead!!
Currently the main places that the children like to visit on a regular basis are Angelsey Abbey, Ickworth, South Angle Farm, Fields of Dreams Farm, Linton Zoo, Nowton park and anywhere they can get outdoors in all weathers to explore and burn off energy!
Our indoor setting is a sunny, bright learning environment suitable for all ages with space for bustling, noisy interaction as well as quiet areas for thoughtful play, reflection and reading.
