About Me

Wise owls is home from home childcare

A bit about me:

Hello im Charlie Wise i have worked in childcare since 2007 i have gained my NVQ level 3 in childcare learning and development and have also completed my 12 hours paediatric first aid course, i have been on several sensory motor courses, i have a excellent understanding of the EYFS and the Children's developmental stages.

I live with my husband, daughter, (4years), son ( 2years) and we have 2 cats and a dog who are very good with the children.

My spaces and areas i can do drop off/collections:

I am currently working with 2 assistants one is trained to nvq level 3 and has previous experience in nurserys and holiday clubs, the other will be starting her apprenticeship with us soon, we stick to the legal ratios but like to keep the groups small to allow for more settled environment.
We are now offering 2 and 3 year old funding spaces.

I currently pick up and drop off fir tree school, local pre schools and spurcroft school I am willing to do pick ups from other pre schools depending on times needed.

we do currently have full time and part time spaces, for school aged children, and under 5s

A bit about Wise Owls

Wise Owls is open 5 days a week 8:00-5.30, different sessions are available to suit you within the opening hours.

I also offer collection and drop off to pre-schools/ schools/ nursery and will be responsible for the children during these times unless agreed other wise.

At wise owls the children are offered access to the out side at all times they also have access to many messy activities through out their day.

I believe in teaching basic life skills:

. Cooking

. Hygiene

. Independence

. Toileting

. Manners

These are all taught throughout the day throughout play.

We have many outings and will visit the local discovery park, We also visit the living rain-forest, library, group sessions and local parks. (Outdoor visits are currently restricted due to covid-19)

The children are encouraged to help prepare most of their own meals and to wash hands and brush their teeth after each meal.

Children are offered 2 meals a day and various snacks, drinks are available at all times.

For more information/ detail on Wise Owls please feel free to contact me

Below are the latest reviews for charlie ann wise. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Right from the start charlie has been been very accomodating and helpful, charlie is very professional and is fantastic with all the children. She takes the children out for short outings which is great as I feel it's very important for children to get out and about. She has an all weather garden which is a great idea and will also soon have a baby sensory unit in her house. I feel very happy with the service I recieve and very happy with the level of care my little one gets, I would have no problem in recommending Charlie to other parents.
