What we do

A Childminder based in North Cornelly, I have been operating Little Lions since 2014. We follow a play based curriculum with inspiration from Hygge practices and the Curiosity approach. We love to be outside and explore, visiting local woods, parks, playgrounds, beaches and playgroups. Children are allowed to choose how they wish to spend their time and activities are child led and adaptable. Good in all areas on recent CIW Inspection with no areas of improvement. Fully safeguarding and paediatric trained. 5* Food rated by Food standards agency.
