A childminder can not be legally responsible for providing home education for your child, however, it is acceptable for them to oversee 'homework'.

I care for children from 0+ and have four of my own children who are 11yrs, 8yrs, 5yrs & 9months who are all home educated ☺️ I am Ofsted registered. We have a few animals in the house so unfortunately can’t care for those with animal allergies but will happily care for those with food intolerances/allergies and do have a little experience here as my youngest is currently dairy and soya free.

I am an Ofsted registered childminder with a strong focus on being outdoors. Although I do not home educate myself at present, my nieces are homeschooled and I completely understand that mainstream education is not suitable for all children, for a variety of reasons.  My spaces for pre-school aged children are mostly full at present, however I feel it could be a huge benefit to the young children and older to spend time together, outdoors as much as possible.  We can all learn from each other no matter how young or old we are, and of course learning is not just about maths and English but about social skills, nurturing those around us and learning that people come in all shapes and sizes, with different interests and ideas and that that not only is ok but it is a good thing. We are individuals and that should be celebrated!

I charge £5 per hour with a minimum attendance time of 5 hours from 9.30-2.30, and am open Monday to Thursday.

Please look at my Facebook page if you would like to see more about what we get up to, and feel free to contact me for more information.

Welcome,

I am Poppy-Jayne Banks and run Hazelnut Childminding. I live with my husband and daughter. Our daughter was born in 2017. We have a cat called Phoebe, a persian, who is mostly outdoors or asleep. We moved from Suffolk to Devon in 2012, where we eventually bought our first house. I love being close to the Dartmoor, Cornwall and the wide expanse sea and take full advantage of what is local to us.

I have been working with children for ten years (including motherhood) and have experience with children from 0 to 12. I focused particularly on supporting children in Early Years, those who needed Speech and Language support and additional needs.

At Sixteen I began a YMCA apprenticeship at a nursery in Suffolk called Rhymes LTD. I enjoyed working in before and after school clubs and in the nursery. I was employed after my apprenticeship and stayed with them for a number of years before becoming a Teaching Assistant in Year one specialising in Makaton and EAL(English as an Additional Language). I chose to attend a college for a year to gain further training and while completing my course I became the LGBT and Disability Officer assisting in the promotion of equality and actively participating in all meetings to gain further support services. When my partner and I moved to Devon, I worked for a number of years as a Speech and Language and Special Educational Needs focused Teaching Assistant using my British sign language certificate, Makaton and other courses to support learning.

After the birth of my daughter I decided that childminding would be a wonderful fit for our family. I observed nurseries and childminding settings before choosing a childminder for some of my child’s care myself. This ensured my child had access to lots of local outings, focused attention and a gentle manner in who I chose.  I understand the importance of a clear, honest relationship between a parent and the care provider they’ve selected for their child. Be assured I will always be open and honest with you and will work with you to support your family’s journey in a gentle way. I am grateful for my wonderful experience using a childminder and it has encouraged me to develop the style of care I am now offering.

I have annual memberships to National Trust, Garden House and Eden Project. We use these regularly as well as exploring in our large garden and the Nature Reserve we back onto. Children here will spend much of their time learning through nature, loose parts, and open ended resources allowing them the freedom to create ideas for themselves and have a go at a variety of play styles. I am supportive of all parent’s choices – here at Hazelnut Childminding I am cloth welcoming, able to sling wear/pram use and breastfeeding/formula friendly. I provide rear-facing car seats, able to rear face until four years old and full car seats until 12.

 

All the best on your search,

 

Poppy
