Hello, welcome to Freerange childminding based in Outwood, Wakefield!

As someone who you will potentially trust to ensure the health and welfare of your child. I am sure you will want to know more about us as a family, our background, our ethics and how we can work with you looking after your little ones.

We opened after recognising a need in our area for childcare with a difference.  We believe children thrive in a home environment, and we spend a lot of our time outdoors in nature where children are supported and encouraged to learn through play and explore the world around them.

We are very child led in our approach, and we parent our own children very much in an attached parenting style, which is responsive to children`s needs and interests. We embrace all diversity in terms of people and culture, and we respect there is no one right way to bring up a child and as such do not judge parents on their parenting choices.  We are respectful, ethical and easy going people.

I have over 15 years experience working in the early years sector, and managing day nurseries and holds a BA Hons in early childhood education and Early Years Professional status, I work with my husband who is currently studying for his Level 3 in Childcare qualification.

We have 2 Daughters (Born 2011 & 2014) who have vast experience in getting messy and jumping in muddy puddles and are eager to share their experience!

We also have a Giant African Snail, and a cat named Tinkerbelle!

We live in an Eco house in a cul de sac in Outwood, we use all of our lower floor for our childcare which leads to a large secure garden for the children to enjoy. We take inspiration from both Steiner Waldorf and Montessori and our resources are carefully chosen to spark your child`s imagination and encourage open ended play.

We use lots of natural materials and try and limit plastic where possible in all areas of our home. We also have a small sensory room which is always available for the children to access.
