Katie Henry, Childminder

We moved into our current home 10 years ago and over that time have truly made it into a comfortable and happy family home. I love being in the garden and we have worked hard to make it not only child friendly but also a relaxing place to spend time and enjoy the outdoors and nature.

We are a family that likes to spend time with our relatives and like to get out and about when we can, whether that's just a walk to the park and back or a trip to the woods/adventure park we are happy to go out in most weathers (with the right clothing!). There are three playgrounds within a 3 min walk of my house and two more within either a 20 min walk or a 3 min car ride, so if we ever feel like getting a bit of fresh air away from home it is extremely convenient to do so and gives us lots of practice in crossing roads (they are relatively quiet too as our home is on a cul-de-sac ).
