We’ve had a lovely couple of days.
On Tuesday we went for a run around on the big field. They played tag, stuck in the mud, cartwheels and just had lots of fun running free. We then walked through the park. The children enjoyed hiding in the trees. The older ones played hide and seek.
On Wednesday as a little end of term treat we’ve hired some soft play equipment and the children have had a fab time climbing, jumping, bouncing they even made a bed and lay down for a sun bathe and a rest 🌞🕶. I think they’ve had a wonderful day and parents they should sleep tonight 😴🤣🥰

Well Tuesday 1st June was our 6th birthday. It’s been 6 whole years since we opened our doors to our superstars family. So I thought I’d put a few photos on from way back as well as some recent ones. I’ve loved all of the children that have come and gone and each and every one of them has become extended family 🥰

So today was pink 👚day at Sandra’s superstars. The children have enjoyed playing with all things pink 🌸💕.
We’ve had lots of small world toys out, fairies, princesses, and so much more. We’ve had the pink building blocks, shapes, numbers, paints and pens. In music we’ve sang some number songs along with other nursery rhymes. As always the children have had lots of fun.
They’ve been so busy it all got to much and ended up in a little nap amongst the small world and the building blocks to recharge 😊😴🥰

Our colour of the day for Tuesday was purple 🟣.
The children are really enjoying all the different colours we are learning. We are also learning shapes 🟣🟪💜 as well. We have been practicing circle, square, triangle, heart and star.
We have been singing songs, counting to 5, trying to thread the beads and building blocks. Most of all the children are enjoying themselves and having lots of fun.
Sorry we didn’t get photos of them playing we were so busy 😳 so I took some of their finished pictures instead.
Thank you again for your continued support. 😊🥰

Following on from last weeks colours, our colour today was blue 🔵 day.
The children have had fun learning about the colour blue. We’ve sang songs in music, counting to 5 with the blue dinosaurs 🦕, played with blue toys, painted pictures, built blue towers, we’ve still been practicing our shapes 🔷🟦🔵💙 blue ones as well of course, but again most of all the children have enjoyed it. They’ve also played in the sand and with the outside toys as the weather was a bit nicer today.
Thank you again to our parents dressing the children in something blue.
Thank you to you all. 🥰

Today we have been learning and talking about the colour green 🟢
The children have had fun finding me something green, we’ve sang songs about the colour green, 5 little speckled frogs 🐸🐸🐸🐸🐸, painted, built towers with building bricks, matching and talked about shapes 🟢🟩. One of our little ones was so eager to draw she didn’t bother waiting for the paper, even though it was right next to her on the table, she just went for it on the table 🙊
Sorry for the lack of photos today we’ve been so busy we didn’t get many 😳.
The children have had lots of fun and enjoying themselves. 🥰

We’ll be moving onto our next colour on Monday.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

We are busy learning our colours. We have a colour of the day each day and Monday was 🔴 red. The children dressed in red and we had lots of fun red activities for them to play while we learned about the colour red. We even sang a song and the children had to find and bring me something red. Oh and we even had red fruit for afternoon snack. Strawberries, raspberries and red grapes. They’ve all had a fun day.
Well done everyone.
Watch out for our next post to see what colour we are learning today.

Twinkle and Sparkle have been busy getting into mischief the last few days. They’ve made sure the girls brushed their teeth, leaving a smiley face in the sink, they’ve took selfies with them in their bed, they’ve even slept in their bed having a lazy day. They also photocopied Twinkle in the printer and printed out pictures of him and his bum🤦🏼‍♀️🤣 which the girls found hilarious. Well let’s see what’s in store for us for the last couple of days. #elfontheshelf 🎄🎅

Our Story

I am an Ofsted registered childminder, with more than 15 years of experience working with children and their families.
I am honest, reliable, friendly and a hardworking person. I’m also Caring and patient with good communication skills, I am committed to the welfare, safeguarding and promotion of children’s education.
I live on my own now, but I have two children, who live with their own families. I have 2 beautiful granddaughters who are 5 and 2 years old, I also a gorgeous grandson who is 4. I love spending time with them.

I used to work in a primary school, and loved working with the children. I worked with small groups and also 1-1 with children with SEN. This meant giving them extra help, support and attending to their specific needs.

I decided to start my own child-minding business. So I did the courses required and when I finished, I applied to Ofsted to register as a child care provider.
I am so happy with my new adventure and share it with some lovely children.

I have a playroom/dining room, activities include, small world, role play, construction, building blocks, messy play, painting, and so much more. There is also a quiet area, for reading, sleeping space, and much more. I have a small front and secure back garden. I have play equipment outside in the back garden, including a playhouse, sand pit, water wall, as well as providing small bikes, ride on, prams etc. These are all tailored to the childs' age and stage of development. Throughout the day we have a mix of child led and adult led activities. I aim to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment for all the children I care for.

I take the children out on visits to Soft Play, out to the park and do autumn walks, trips to the, beach etc. also the usual - Shops, Library, etc.
I find working with children can be very rewarding and enjoy watching the children develop. I pride myself in my work and aim to provide an excellent service and I am happy to try my best to fulfill any requests a parent requires individually for their child or children.

I provide care for all children from birth - 8 years (ages negotiable) in term time and school holidays. My hours 8 am -6 pm Monday - Thursday, but this can be negotiable with prior notice. I will offer discounts for all day bookings and oldest siblings. I will be able to do school / nursery pick up and drop off, for James Knott NCEA, also Central Primary.

I believe every child is an individual and needs to be treat that way, I will be working closely with all my parents and offer help and advice with any concerns they may have with their children. Your child will be made to feel very welcome, as part of the family.

I offer the free funding for 2, 3, and 4 year olds.

I am happy to give any help or advice or answer any questions you feel you need to ask,
I am a member of PACEY, www.childcare.co.uk
netmums, and care.com

Please call me for a chat and hopefully arrange a time to visit my home.

Special offer discounts available.

Limited vacancies available now!
