My name is Lottie Fudge and I am a qualified childminder with Tiney. an Ofsted registered childminding agency. I am a qualified teacher and have been working as a Reception teacher since 2019. I registered as a childminder in May 2022 and I am passionate about working with children.
I am based in beautiful Aycliffe, Dover, in a well-resourced home-from-home. I have a spacious garden which we use daily as our main play space. Each day is filled with child-initiated play and activities personalised to help support the children's development. We also love to explore all that Kent has to offer and my setting is a walkable distance to a local park, Shakespeare beach and Samphire Hoe. We also visit Dover Castle, Sunny Sands and Betteshanger Park. On other days, we may visit soft play, toddler groups and libraries.
From September 2023, I will be going on maternity leave for approximately 6 months. I will not be taking any new enquiries for September.
My setting is open Monday-Friday, 8:00am-6:30pm throughout the year. I can pick/up and drop/off to Aycliffe Primary School and Nursery. My setting has availability from September 2022.
My fees are currently £6 an hour, which includes breakfast, dinner, snacks and outings. Parents will need to provide a packed lunch, nappies and wipes. I offer funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.
I am registered with Tiney, an Ofsted registered childminding agency who offer world-class training and support to their growing community of childminders. Check out their website to find out more: https://www.tiney.co/ .
