I use a lot of natural resources and encourage the children to use their own imagination by providing open ended play,The children have a great time with messy play using water,paper,soil ,foam and sand which we use in our outdoor covered play area and we enjoy our craft time when we make pictures and add memories to our learning journals ,we cook together a lot and make sweet puds and savouries to eat at mealtimes.
We love to read and play with lots of toys like animals,trains dolls and hospitals and our vast range of Grimms and holtztiger and Lanka natural toys we love to make dens in the back garden or anywhere really it’s all fun and make excellent caves under the tables I like to encourage the children to use their imagination and to make memories ...
I have a covered outside area and mud kitchen which is connected to my playroom so the children will always have access to playtime and craft without getting wet ...
We have a nutritious cooked meal and a light tea as well as snacks throughout the day ,food is not restricted in this house but is carefully watched in case of allergies

Janine is the best! She is so loving,caring and professional when it comes to looking after your little ones. Janine does so many fun and educational crafts, activities and days out, both my boys have loved going there which is so important and makes it much easier to leave them. It's such a lovely family setting and all the kids become such good friends. By the time my son was old enough for school he was so ready and completely prepared as he'd already learnt so much with Janine.

I'm so lucky to have found her and feel so comfortable that my baby's in safe hands in a lovely home from home setting. I would reccomend her to anyone.

Janine is an amazing lady. Children in her care are always happy. If they aren't out exploring Rivington, puddle jumping and enjoying the great outdoors they are baking, building dens and making the most of their imaginations. Janine is kind, caring and an all round lovely lady. Her own children are a credit to her loving nature. Im very lucky to have her on my doorsetp.

I could not recommend janine enough! The moment I met her I knew she was the person I wanted to trust with the care of my children. She has been in our life for over 6 years and we all feel so lucky to have her. She has gone above and beyond and is ways willing to be flexible and help out when she can.

Janine provides a range of activities that seem to engage my boys well and help then learn. They have both learned so much during their time with janine and never want to come home which I think is testament to how much janine loves and cares for them! I cannot imagine our lives without janine... She is amazing!!

I can't recommend Hubble Bubble enough. A true home away from home where children are cherished and provided with an enriching environment with lots of opportunities to be out in the fresh air with woodland and parkland explorations and other exciting adventures. Jan is so supportive with both children and parents and will always go the extra mile. I could not have wished for a better childcare setting for our son 💗
