I am an active childminder and we go on many outings including to the Aquarium, Pennywell Farm, the beach and many local parks. We regularly visit the local library and attend several toddler and childminder groups. An example of our daily routine can be found here.

We have an enclosed garden with a variety of toys including a sand pit, a ball pool, a bouncy castle and an area for children to plant seeds and generally dig.
Arrangements for comfortable, quiet rest times or naps are made for children who need them.
I value the importance of communicating with parents and I complete a daily diary with pictures and descriptions of what the children have been up to each day. I also compile scrapbooks and learning journeys for each child to keep.
