A busy but fantastic week

The last few weeks have been busy, but brilliant. We’ve been joined by a new starter; a lovely, giggly 22-month old boy, who gets on with Leo like a house on fire. He loves to dance too, so we’ve been out to Bounce and Rhyme and also Diddi Dancing, I also found a few new groups nearby in Galgate- again, singing, dancing and clapping, but they have a messy play session too, so we will be checking that out in the next few weeks.

What else have we been up to-? We’ve been to Giggles soft play, we’ve done lots of home-learning, with shapes, animal sounds and letters and we’ve had many journeys to the park. Both the boys love the swing, so it is lucky there is a big basket type swing that they can fit in together.

Also- the older two are back at school, so it’s homework, PE kits, dinner money and, for the first time, school swimming lessons.

I’ve got another new starter at the end of September. Another boy, also under 2 years.  A tandem pushchair has been ordered!


Welcome to the blog for Chris Marriott Childminding

Hi, I’m Chris. I’m a Dad of three and work as a childminder in South Lancaster.

I’m OFSTED registered, and have a paediatric first aid certificate.

I currently have vacancies available, both part-time and full-time. Please give me a ring for details or to arrange a visit to my home- contact details are given in the sidebar.

I am a firm believer in child-led play. Children in my care enjoy exploratory and investigative activities, lots of outdoor play, social time at clubs and groups, visits to farms, parks and the library. We bake, grow vegetables, do plenty of messy play and read. All activities are mapped to the EYFS to ensure all children progress along their learning journey.

I have a 7-seater car and a clean driving licence.

I’ll be using this blog to share information about Chris Marriott Childminding and my life as a Dad.
