Welcome to Mini Caterpillars Childcare. We are a home from home setting with a huge variety of open ended resources for the chlidren to enjoy. We enjoy being out in the open and exploring new places as well as visiting our favourite places too. 

We meet up regularly with our friends at other childminder settings so that the children are making friends and socialising with other children their own age. 

We attend Forest School, dance classes, TinyTalk Signing Classes and enjoy trips out to farms, country parks, woods, theatres, museums and anywhere that takes our fancy. 

We follow the children's interests and build our curriculum around this.
