"Throughout our inspection visit we found the environment to be relaxed and nurturing. We saw that the children engaged in positive interaction with both childminders . Furthermore, their interaction with children was consistently attentive, warm and supportive. This contributed to ensuring that children had positive relationships with the childminders and that they were happy and secure in their care. "
(Care Inspectorate, Jan 2016)
At Wellie Boots the day is planned to best meet the needs of individual children. We take good heed of children's interests and ensure children can organise their time as they choose. Snack and meal times are organised so that children can eat when they choose and are involved in the preparation of foods. Children can choose to play alone, with others or with an adult.
Babies and young children will benefit from a secure home environment. We will discuss your babies / child's needs with you and ensure their usual routine is incorporated into their day. We believe babies and children should be supported in a kind, warm manner and we are happy to spend time ensuring your baby / child feels safe and happy in our care. All children will be offered a settling in session, free of charge.
At Wellie Boots we believe childrens time is precious and should be spent doing things they enjoy. Play is the best tool we have to help children learn and children learn best when happy and well cared for. We will endeavour to ensure your child can access the activities he/she chooses and enjoys.
We value the importance of outdoor experiences and ensure that the children spend as much time as possible exploring and playing outdoors. We have a large Polytunnel where the children are involved in growing and planting. Our large garden provides the perfect environment for building natural dens, using vehicles in our mud pit and exploring.
At Wellie Boots we offer a wide range of activities.
Indoors we can;
In the garden we can;
