Ernie - Hitchin Childcare
Fun! Messy play, gluing and sticking, role play, building farms and houses with Duplo, just a few things I get up to during my working day.  The children always have big smiles on their faces which is great to see. I am never bored at work or wish I was doing something different. I can truly say I love being a Childminder.

About us Minimize

I live in North Hitchin and have been a registered childminder since April 2009. I live with my son Ethan who was born in 2011.

I was graded outstanding at my last Ofsted inspection, Jan 2019.

As well as being fully inspected and regulated by OFSTED I have also completed my Diploma in Home-based Childcare Unit 1 and Paediatric first aid training. I have full public liability insurance and completed my NVQ level 3 in Childrens Care, Learning and Development. I attend many courses and Childminder's network meetings to continually update my knowledge and understanding of my business.

Happy children at Hitchin Childcare

I enjoy working with children, accepting them into my home and making them feel like part of our family. Ethan loves meeting new children and always having lots of friends around to play with!

My Setting:

I offer a warm, relaxed, family environment in which your child will feel safe and secure. I believe that babies and young children develop better in a home based setting due to the positive learning environment we provide. Having the same person caring for them each day helps your child to make close bonds and grow in confidence enabling them to flourish.
 
I support the effective learning of children and provide opportunities for individual attention in a rich learning environment which is a fun and stimulating place where your child can play and learn. My priority is to ensure your child has FUN whilst in my care.
 
 My aim is to ensure your children grow into happy, healthy, confident and content individuals.

 
Why us? Minimize

I pride myself on treating every child as an individual as they are all unique.

Toys for children to play with at Hitchin Childacare

I have a dedicated playroom for the children in my care which is used for craft and messy play, it alsoHappy children at Hitchin Childcare has toys, games, role-play items and walls showcasing the children's work to make them feel part of our childminding family. The garden has grass and a patio area which enables outside play all year round. I also have a Large mud kitchen in the garden allowing the children to communicate when making mud pies, potions or just getting messy. I am part of a local childminding network and use playgroups and toy library's throughout the week. There are local parks, woods and farms on our door step, we are never stuck for fun things to do!

Specific time is allocated to help guide your child towards their next early years learning goal.

I now have a smart table 442i at the setting. This allows the children to develop communication skills in a group, hand eye coordination, ICT development, mathmatics and literacy. It also makes us the first childminders in the UK to own a smart table.

I offer 2, 3 and 4 year old free education funding.

Disco duck is here!. Movement, music and dance linked to the EYFS. This will be free of charge to contracted children.
