About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

My name is Diane and I run Huggy Bear Childcare in Hutton, Brentwood. I care for pre-school children only. I am based approx one mile from Shenfield Station. I have a spacious house, play room and enclosed outdoor area. My play room is equipped with a variety of resources for preschool children. I have worked as a childminder for 16 years and can provide references. I structure my day with activities following the EYFS and I like to take the children on outings as much as possible. We visit the library, the local farm, parks and soft play. We also enjoy meeting other local childminders for play days which enhances the children’s social skills. I use ‘tapestry’ to record your child’s development which you can access privately via an App.

I have an 8 seater car for outings and all the equipment needed to care for your child. I am happy to meet for an informal chat anytime that suits you.

Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
