Jane Burden

I am an Ofsted registered and nature-inspired childminder (graded outstanding). I provide a gentle, nurturning, safe and happy space in which children can play and feel completely at home in my home.

We are based out in our natural play area in the garden which has a playhouse, large sandpit, firepit, mud kitchen, dens and 'forest' area, polytunnel for all our planting, bug hotel, bird boxes and bird cafe, butterfly house and lots of wood. We have a heated shelter (our shed) with toys and resources, and opportunities for play and discovery. We spend most of our time outside and do lots of activities according to the seasons, such as apple pressing, conker/leaf collecting and investigating pumpkins in the autumn, making bird cakes in the winter, planting seeds and caterpillar/butterfly rearing in the spring, and investigating tadpoles in our pond in the summer. We also follow individual interests and there is lots of time for uninterrupted play.

We take full advantage of our local park for feeding the ducks, playing in the playground, splashing in puddles when its wet and flying the kite when its windy.  We also visit out local library regularly to read and borrow books and have trips out to Reddish Vale, Hulme Garden Centre and a fruit/veg picking farm.
