About Me

My name is Heather Orton, I'm married with a 15 year old boy and 11 year old girl and a beagle dog.
I began childminding after I had my 15 year old, and think it is the most rewarding job in the world.

My husband is also an Ofsted registered childminder and works with me full time, giving the children the advantage of a positive male and female role model.

We do a range of activities with the children, including cooking, Gardening, tots group, park play, creating, yoga, mindfulness, construction and Spanish lessons. We follow the EYFS framework (the same as nurseries), using the children’s interest to inform our planning. We have an allotment that is within walking distance which the children enjoy visiting and helping in.

The children that i have cared for in the past are a valued part of our extended family.

I drop off and pick up from St Mary’s School, Hinckley Parks School, and St Peters School and am based on Mount Road in Hinckley.

I have lots of childcare qualifications including: paedatric first aid, food hygiene, Level 3 Diploma in childcare and young peoples workforce. (the new version of the NVQ3)
Ofsted inspected in September 2018 and graded as a "Good" childminder.

Please contact me if you are interested in childcare (or have any questions I could help you to answer). X

Heather and Ady are brilliant...I picked her from this site for my son and it was the best decision I made. They interact, play games, take him to a tots group twice a week not to mention outdoor play. Couldn’t ask for two nicer people to look after my boy whilst I’m working
