Being Outdoors

  • At Lucky Beans activities outside, learning and developing in nature is hugely important.

We love being creative!

Our babies have so much fun! We know that babies and toddlers have different needs, so we always ensure everything is tailored specifically to your child’s needs. 

We believe that an important life-skill for children is teaching them to nurture other living things, so we grow lots of things like fruits, herbs and vegetables to use in our cooking.

Me, My Family and Our Home - hopefully where you and your baby will be coming to soon

My name is Caroline and I am an OFSTED approved child minder and a mother. My philosophy is that all children thrive in a stimulating, nurturing and caring environment. I am 53 years old and live with my husband and our 4 sons aged from 6 to 23. I have had lots of experience with childcare throughout my life, having been a governor for our local school and having worked in a local orphanage when I was still living in South Africa. I have been a working Mum with a career as a psychologist so I fully understand the stresses and strains of balancing home and work life.

  

I believe in not just in developing the skills laid down by EYFS but in enriching children’s lives with music, cooking, gardening and arts and crafts and sport. Lucky Beans has been operating since January 2016 and as well as a lovely Playroom at the back of the house, large amounts of books and toys and safety-conscious modifications to all the areas the children are allowed in, I have a lovely garden and a separate Garden Room  for the children to develop and explore (please see pictures on next page for all of these areas).

 

My service provides a home from home. Having sent my children to nursery, a child minder and had nannies/au pairs, I fully understand the variety of options available and the value that such a service can provide. I am a member of PACEY and hold a certificate from them in basic food hygiene (Level 2) and a certificate from Wandsworth Council for home-based care and Safeguarding and in paediatric first aid (Level 3)

 

I know how important it is for parents to go to work knowing that their children are well cared for. I also understand the need to provide parents with the information and support they need to feel satisfied and supported by their childcare provider – I want to involve you as much as possible!

 Our boys

My pride and joys - the boys with their cousins in Cornwall! They are a pretty independent bunch – except for the littlest one, and even then just you try keeping him away from a puddle!

My husband, Simon

I first met Simon at university and he is my husband and best friend. He is very supportive of my childminding, and will lend a hand if a parent is unavoidably delayed picking up their little one or if a game of cricket in the garden is in the offing!

Our dog, Milo! 

He’s 17 years old, has no teeth left and is as friendly as can be. Animals are great for young children – they‘re on the same wavelength! They help them learn compassion and nurturing and while Milo probably won’t be around much at home he’s great fun to play with in the park.
