Andrea Hadgraft (Fun Days Childminding Service)

Ofsted Rating: Outstanding

Blackpool Specialist Childminder

Hello, my name is Andrea and I’m a full-time childminder. I have two children of my own aged 28 and 21 who continue to support my career choice.

I have been working with children for over 20 years. I started my career working with children with additional needs in pre-school and a local specialist school.

During my career I have gained qualifications and knowledge including NVQ3, Level 4 in managing quality standards within children’s services, foundation degree and I am currently studying for my BA Honours degree.

I deliver organised play sessions with  other outstanding childminder’s to enhance play and learning opportunities. These sessions are valuable for all children as they have opportunities to socialise with a larger group without the structure of a large nursery.

Siblings are not separated into age-appropriate areas but are supervised and encouraged to mix with others.

To have Outstanding providers with a wealth of knowledge working together  ensures each child receives the best possible care and attention is an advantage.

Enjoy and Achieve,

It is my pleasure to ensure every child in my care receives good quality activities that will enhance their learning and development. Activities that cover the seven areas of learning such as circle time, The Rhyme Challenge, PE and exercises, small world such as dolls house, dinosaurs, cars and our secret garden. Maths and Language are encouraged during play activities and one-to-one. Your child’s interests will be enhanced during play and will incorporate learning opportunities.     

Outings are a regular part of our weekly routine including local children centres, soft play, library, parks and sessional visits to the zoo and farms. These excursions are at no extra cost to parents and are enjoyed by all that have attended.

I also accept, the 2yr grant and 3/4year old grant giving flexable free childcare hours a week.
