Little Bees Childminding Torquay
I’ve wanted to set up my childminding business for years and I’m finally doing it!
My name is Bianca (B) for short! I’m 37.
Originally from Exeter but moved to Torquay to buy a house 7 years ago when I was pregnant to be by the sea and sand. I have two children of my own, they are 6 and 2. I live with my husband who works full time as a carpenter.

The Area
I am in the Barton Torquay area and will be available for school pick ups and drop offs from St Mary Church School.

My Ethos
I incorporate some Montessori and the curiosity approach while following the eyfs curriculum.
I want to venture on days out when possible and luckily there are so many places around Torquay it’s such a great place to be a childminder.

Food and Pets
I was previously a chef for 5 years so have prepared a menu for the children’s meals.
I will do pack lunches for days out.
We have a giant pet African land snail which is great for handling and feeding.

The Setting
We have a playroom which is specially designed just for the children I childmind. Filled with educational, Montessori, creative and fun activities. We have a lovely outdoor space which is inclosed and has thick soft fake grass for little ones to be able to crawl.

Fun Stuff
I also run a business that makes playdough and loose part play pieces called Bees Busy Boxes.
I also used to run a face painting business and entertained at children’s birthday parties.
