Our first butterfly has hatched 🦋
I am a Childminder with 23 years childcare experience, 6 yrs in a nursery and 16 yrs as a nanny.
Operating as usual
On Friday I had my Food Safety Inspection and I’m very pleased to announce that I was awarded a 5 star rating ⭐️😊
The chrysalides are now in the butterfly garden, can’t wait to see them hatch 🐛🦋
Getting ready to moult one last time before they form into Chrysalides 🦋
Nobody told me they would smell so bad as they got bigger 🤢
Day 9 of our caterpillars and they are massive 😯
Happy Mothers Day to all the mummies.
Hope you have an amazing day with your littles ones 💐
Very excited about this…….our caterpillars have turned up today ready for us to learn the lifecycle of a butterfly and watch our caterpillars transform into painted lady butterflies before we release them 🦋

My new travel first aid kit arrived today 😊
This week green is our colour of the week. We’ve found some green objects around the house already this morning 🟢
Last week blue was the colour of the week. We looked for blue objects round the house and when we were out and about. Lots of blue cars were spotted 🔵
Today I have been a registered Childminder for a year and today I had my first graded inspection and was awarded Outstanding, I’m so proud of myself 😊
We’ve had a busy few weeks getting ready for Christmas, completing our Christmas art and crafts and exploring the Christmas tuff tray.
Wishing my families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 🎄
All set up for some Halloween fun tomorrow.
My son set up the tuff tray for me and even made a sign to go on it 😍
We also set up some colour matching caldrons 🎃👻💀🧙🏻♀️
After the farm on Monday we spent Tuesday playing with a Halloween Sensory tuff tray and scooped our pumpkins out and carved them. Wednesday we went back to Odds Farm (we love that place 😊) and today we had another Halloween tuff tray and this afternoon we painted a picture of a pumpkin and did some colour mixing too 🚜 🎃 🎨
What a busy day we have had. We went to Odds Farm today (one of our favourite places to go)
We fed the animals, went on the tractor ride, splashed in puddles and went to pick pumpkins from the pumpkin patch 🎃🚜🐷🐮
Not sure about these 3 but I’ll definitely sleep well tonight 😴
It’s been a busy couple of weeks. We’ve had a new little one start who has settled so well 😊 My little ones coloured a picture of the queen and I laminated it for them to keep forever, we’ve been to play parks, back to Char Cha Chimps after a break over Summer, back to toddler groups and the singing session at the library.
At the weekend my son asked me if we could do a dinosaur themed week for the little ones so we put some ideas together and the littles ones have loved it.
We have stomped round the room like dinosaurs, sung dinosaur songs, made pictures using dinosaur stickers and the little ones had so much fun in our dinosaur tuff tray which had green coloured rice for the grass and crushed up rice crispies for the sand 🦖🦕
Ready for my week off next week and looking forward to having some family time for the last week of the summer holidays ☀️🏖
Lots of playing outside in the garden last week ☀️ the water play is always such a big hit 💦😊And the week ended with a settling in session with my new little one who will be joining us in a couple of weeks.
My little helper (my son) has been setting up some toys for tomorrow for me 😍
PROUD TO BE A CHILDMINDER! 😊
Snotty noses, Runny bums
Doting dads, caring mums
Inspection visits, rainy days
Learning lots as baby plays
Coughs and colds, sickness bugs
Cheeky smiles, Lots of hugs
Screaming babies, terrible twos
Drawing, painting, stick and glues
Learning journeys, early years,
texting parents to ease their fears
Years of closeness, they then move on
Just our memories now they're gone
Against all the rules to keep any snaps
of the children that sat on our laps
Sometimes we watch them as they grow
but some we never see once they go
Childminding is easy I hear from some
A day watching tv sat on their bum
I find it quite funny, if only they knew
The love and devotion and hard work we do.
The last few weeks we have spent a lot of time in the garden having lots of water play. The little ones loved spending some time in the paddling pool as well, especially the last couple of days (at 8.30am 😅)
Thank goodness it’s slightly cooler now, working Monday and Tuesday was tough in 39 degrees heat 🥵 but we managed it and we managed to stay as cool as we could.
