A Home from Homes - Hygge in the Early Year accredited provision
Nearby schools & colleges
I am a Ofsted registered Good childminder offering a home from home environment to nurture and devel I live a short walk from Waddesdon Village Primary School.
My name is Sue and I live in Waddesdon with my two children. We have a child friendly spacious house and a large garden. There is a vegetable patch so children can have a go at growing some of their own fruit and veggies as well as a grass lawn for outdoor play. We like to have time to play with toys and carry out lots of crafts and messy play activities at home. For quieter times we enjoy reading
Operating as usual
We enjoyed some water play today. We mixed colours using our fine motor skills, squeezing the pipettes with different colours into clear water. We extended our play using the water channels and pouring the coloured water down them. Even Pippin joined in
We made dinosaur 🦕 land today. Matching footprints to dinosaur in wet sand
A snail has made its way into the play tunnel this morning. We sat and watched it make its way around it for ages. The children were amazed at how quickly it moved and that when it was at the top it didn’t fall off.
All my little ones went home with a cherry wood coronation medal, and a packet of British wildflower seeds, for the coronation of our new King last week. I hope the small people plant them and help save our bees.
I’m so please to announce that I have maintained my Good at my recent Ofsted inspection. I’m so proud of the children and what we have all achieved together 🥰
Today we had fun at Berkhamsted Castle, as we said see you later to our oldest family and wished them well till we meet again. We ran, climbed steps and hid in the motte-and-bailey castle that dates from the 11th to 15th centuries. It’s was truly a magical place to be.
After the shock snow on the school run (it didn’t settle 😭) my little people were asking for second breakfast, so they all sat nicely round the table to enjoy some warm toast.

What an amazing day at The Childcare and Education Expo
Yesterday we had a fabulous day all the animal and us were making the most of the late winter sunshine.
We had a brilliant morning at the Natural History Museum in Tring today, we got to see lots of animals and birds that we’ve been talking about so far this year. We also got to see some beautiful Wildlife Photography
Today we enjoyed learning more about birds. Doing some funky finger work and going on a nature walk to find leaves to make some squirrel 🐿️ pictures. Anna's Super Troopers thanks for joining us.
On a very foggy morning we went to feed the ducks, as we we’re worried with all this ice they wouldn’t be able to get their normal food. So we wrapped up super warm and off to the lake we went. We were all amazing by the amount of ice. It was so thick and there were icicles everywhere. Turned out we didn’t bring enough food 😢 and had to leave some unfed. We will definitely be heading back to feed them again soon.
This is such a amazing idea.

Nursery Rhymes. We love them all
The small people, with the help of Anna's Super Troopers, made their Mummies and Daddies a lovely Apple and Cranberry Chutney for Christmas. They did everything from carrying for and picking the home grown apples, buying the other ingredients, chopping and coring the apples, weighing the ingredients, stirring the ingredients in the saucepan, and all the other little bits in between. I’m extremely proud all turned out.
I am absolutely ecstatic to announce that A Home from Homes Childminding is now officially a Hygge in the Early Years Accredited setting 🎉🎉🎉
It was an amazing journey that we are continuing every day
I short visit with Anna's Super Troopers to make Magic Reindeer food. I pinch of magic for Christmas Eve
We’ve been writing to Santa 🎅🏻 today, either by typewriter or pencil. Then we folded our letters, popped them in envelopes and posted them in Santa’s 🎅🏻 letter box. Under Santa watchful eye and thanks to our Santa buddies letter from we were able to send them to the right place.
The best things to watch this Christmas 😍😍
Today we visited where we played, saw the animals, we even got to touch a very soft Lamb 🐑 and saw a Ewe in labour.
Sensory Christmas play dough. We used orange slices, cinnamon sticks and pine tree bits. We used our hands to squash, roll and flatten the play dough and then pressed the loose parts in to see the patterns left behind. The one of the best things was the beautiful Christmas smells that came off the play dough as we worked.
After reading Pick a Pine Tree we used our fine motor skills to decorate our small brush trees. After that we sorted the Pom Poms we used into there different colours.
We’ve been out for a while looking at the footprints in the snow and how beautiful everything is and talking about why it snowed and how we can help the animals while the snow it here.
Another fun filled day. I love this time of year. We played in the Santa wonder land for hours, we went on a w**d walk, made orange and clove decorations and then made a snowman with our snowman parts. Thank you Anna's Super Troopers for coming over for a play

We had a lovely day learning about Remembrance, first we went up Waddesdon hill to see the silent soldiers and then made poppies and painted a field of poppies. We looked at some of my family that gave their life for our freedom and talked about what freedom means and the great sacrifice all the men and women have made for us. Thanks you Anna's Super Troopers for sharing such a lovely day with us 😍
We did some Autumn colour sorting today. The children sorted the dried fruit into different colours while enjoying the rich Autumn smells.
I saw another childminder do this and loved it but can’t find who it was, so if it was you, thank you so much for sharing your amazing idea, the children loved it
We made some fireworks 💥 patterns today. The small people played for ages making swirls, lines, stars and many more marks.
Thank you Anna's Super Troopers for having us over yesterday. We had a wonderful day looking at all the autumn colours, leaves and berries on our walk. The amazing apple tree on the green was to much to walk by and leave the apples (love a bit of scrumping). So many things we can use them for. The boys loved eating them for snack and then using the bruised ones in a bit of improvised messy play.
I had a day off today so painted this for the children 😍. We love
A lovely day catching up with my longest coming children (6 years). They are like my family, so it’s always a special time in the holidays when they come. 🥰
The rain was pouring down outside so we snuggled in the warm doing something we love. Making biscuits 😍
I’ve been wanting to do this for ages and I finally had everything I needed including old bits of crafts, bits a bobs collected over the last few weeks, glue and a bit of ply to stick it all to.
The children loved pouring the glue and making it their own. The best bit is, we dry it and it comes out again and again to be added to. There is no right way or wrong way, it’s there glue table to do as they wish.
