Childcare while you are at work or need some time.... but also so much more:
An adventure for your child in getting to know themselves, finding their confidence, discovering their strengths and exploring the treasure-chest of beautiful places we have on our doorstep.
We are so lucky to live in this area with beaches, forests, gardens, lakes, hills, stately homes, castles, rivers and so much more to explore.
We love getting out and about! Wellies, waterproofs and a hot chocolate keep us going when needed. Okay.... sometimes a whole change of clothes may be required after the more extreme muddy puddle jumping!
Focused on school age children we are free to have big adventures. We serve this age range specifically and are able to succesfully meet each child's unique needs.
Happiness... a contented, calmness on the inside. Being relaxed, feeling free and a reassuring self confidence.
Wellness starts in the mind. This is our primary goal, to help children feel good about themselves and their life. The foundation of what all our children need and deserve!
Friendship, company, communication, contact with nature and to feel a part of something, to belong.
Today's world of social media and perfectly edited images challenges the confidence our children have.
Kids can be so resilient yet are also fragile as they develop emotionally.
We aim to create friendships and positive bonds between ourselves, the children and our pets. We have several furry members of the team employed as cuddle-monsters and ball-fetchers. We find they can work magic with the quiet ones. They can tell who needs their attention!
Good healthy food, the fuel kids need.
We are passionate about this.
Introducing a wide variety of foods to the children in our care gives us great satisfaction.
Teaching the younger generation how to nourish themselves is a precious life skill with real implications for the rest of their lives.
Advertising, cheap, easy options and lifestyle changes mean that it's harder for children today to make the right choices than it was just a generation ago.
Our children need knowledge to help them pick the foods that nourish their bodies and making these choices wisely must become habit at an early age.
As well as all the sensible reasons listed above, trying new foods is great fun!
Together we prepare nourishing snacks and meals. We also tidy up together sometimes. We learn to work as a team and to look after ourselves for today and long term health.
Eating together is good for the soul.
Being active keeps us well, body and mind.
Children need activity, contact with nature and time to be mindful. This is what we do best.
As parents we have so much to juggle, there's never enough time to fulfill all of our good intentions and frequently the task of a day out in the fresh air is more than we can manage. This is where our service is designed to actualize your good intentions, all while you are at work, perhaps doing something else that needs doing or maybe just nurturing your own needs as a person.
NHS UK says this about exercise at any age:
"People who exercise regularly have a lower risk of developing many long-term (chronic) conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and some cancers.
You can get up to £500 every 3 months (£2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare.
If you get Tax-Free Childcare, the government will pay £2 for every £8 you pay your childcare provider via an online account.
As an OFSTED Registered Child Care provider upto 85% of our fees may be claimed back through Universal Credits, Working Tax Credits or Student finance if you qualify.
