Neil Roger Hutchinson

Welcome to Noah's Ark Childminding!

I am an Ofsted Registered, paediatric first aid qualified childminder with a 5 year old boy (Noah) of my own and I am based in Little Heath near Springfield Primary School. We also have a friendly and relaxed rabbit, some fish and my son is currently looking after an ever increasing number of stick insects!

I offer a home from home environment with a great opportunities for learning and development, with lots of age appropriate toys, crafts and games.

The childcare setting is based in an annex separate to the main house, with its own toilet facilities. I also have a large play area laid with fake grass dedicated specifically to the childcare setting, this offers the opportunity for outside play in most conditions with messy play and mucking about in the sandpit always available!

I have playing fields and a park right on my doorstep, and we are two minutes walk from some beautiful woods ideal for nature walks and treasure hunts. Adventures further afield to farms, parks and lakes will also be organised, and we will also attend local tots groups and events.

Music and creativity are a big part of my family life and I feel giving the children the opportunity to create, dance and experience new things is really important.

But overall the most important thing is that they are happy and have fun!
