Arlene Haffie Childminder

Who to contact

I provide a service for early years children only so all the children in my care are 4 years old and under. I keep my numbers low in order to provide the best possible care for the children I look after. I am a fully qualified, experienced early years teacher and accredited network childminder graded Outstanding by Ofsted in October 2015. I offer government funded spaces and accept childcare vouchers. I am fully registered and insured with training in first aid, safeguarding and child development. My setting is specifically resourced for early years children. I often work alongside preschools in settling in your child and share information with them regarding your child's development. I do not care for children over 5 years old for before/after school care. I take children on term-time only contracts with no charge during school holidays. I aim to keep my numbers low in order to provide the best possible care for the children I look after and to give individual attention. I consider my service a calm, caring and stimulating home from home environment in which children are encouraged to learn through play in a relaxed and friendly setting. For young children I believe a child led learning environment works most successfully. I achieve this through following children's individual needs and interests and providing them with opportunities to extend their learning based on their previous experiences. We have regular visits to local parks and toddler groups as well as the beach and the local farm. I offer a no obligation visit to my home to view my premises and documents and to discuss your requirements. I have an information pack which is available on request.
