I’m Ellie, an Ofsted registered childminder in Knowle… I grew up with my own mum childminding and have worked as a primary school teaching assistant since 2013.
I live with my husband, our son (born Summer 2017) and our cat. We have a great garden which will allow for some fantastic outdoor learning. We are developing our outside area to include a mud kitchen, water wall, and other resources for curious minds Our inside space is cosy, safe and welcoming for home-from-home comfort whilst being clear and open, lending itself to exploratory play such as den building, train sets and imaginary play.
Our daily activities will include a broad range of reading stories, exploring numbers, singing song and sensory play, alongside regular trips to join other children at playgroups and days out to places such as Bristol Zoo, city farms, local parks and woods. Working closely with parents and carers, I will provide the opportunity and environment for children to learn through play and develop creativity, independence and curiousity
