What we do

My childminding service is an attachment-style, relaxed, home-from-home environment. With inspiration from Montessori, RIE, and attachment theory, I support and facilitate development through freely chosen play activities. We have a generous back garden including fruit, vegetables, a greenhouse, toys, bikes and large apparatus, our tree which offers protection from strong sun in the summer, and chickens! We have a snake and fish indoors as well. We visit local parks and woods. I promote a healthy attitude towards food and drinks, offering sustainable and healthy food choices through planting, growing, picking, and preparing our food, and through games and conversations. Creativity plays a big part in the children's day as they are allowed to be spontaneous and immerse themselves in their projects. I am learning Welsh and encourage the use of Welsh throughout the day with the children.

I offer a wraparound service to Ysgol-y-Wern in Llanishen.
