The Nest Childminders

The Nest Childminders have three spacious playrooms, one for quieter games, puzzles and role play, and one for eating and messy play activities, and the final one is set up for undertones/crawlers. All the rooms are set up with age appropriate toys and equipment, which are updated regularly.


There is a discreet changing room with a high level changing mat. A downstairs toilet with a small moveable step and an inbuilt smaller toilet seat. A sink that the children have access to, using it independently with an adult nearby for help if needed.


There is a seperate sleep room, containing four wooden cots and two single beds, with a dark relaxing atmosphere with soft classical music playing and a lavender infuser for a calming scent.


The Nest Childminders outside area is amazing, with a huge secluded garden containing trees for climbing, a sensory garden, a wendy house for role play, slides and swings, Chalk boards, a construction area for building, and a 'dino world'.


There are outdoor maths and literacy opportunities with numbers around, and a set of story stones, building the children's imagination and ability to story tell. There is a large veg garden where all ages of children help us to plant, care for and harvest the food we are growing, this is giving them knowledge of healthy eating, taking care of living things and about growth and decay. There is also a fire pit, which has been fully risk assessed and they have had the local fire station in to talk to the children about fire safety, explaining what to do if there is a fire and who to call.


The Nest Childminders have a pet Tortoise called 'Tishka'. She has been with us for about 12 years, the children love to watch her walk around, grazing the grass and quite often find things to feed her with. They will help give her small baths and help to get her ready for hibernation in the winter.
