About Me

i am an experienced childcare worker. i moved to the area from Mid wales in December 2020 and we bought our house so i could run a childminding business. i have children of my own ranging from 13 to 8 months. we have a large house and garden allowing the children in my care the space and opportunity to explore and learn.

i will basing my service of the pedagogical approach of the Curiosity Approach. Which aims to create ‘thinkers & doers’ by putting the child at the centre of their own development and education. Modern toys and technology are removed from the learning environment and replaced with everyday items to encourage children’s natural curiosity and eagerness to explore and create.

The Curiosity Approach draws from various other philosophies of early years education, including the Reggio Emilia approach, Te Whãriki, Montessori, Pikler and Steiner.
