Typical Weekly Activities
I arrange many outings with the children. These may simply be a visit to the shops and post office to run errands, or to visit the many parks and open spaces near to hear, with other childminders and the children in their care.
With the local park a two-minute walk away, it is a great place to have a picnic and enjoy the equipment there. Other parks we may visit are Pennington Park in Tunbridge Wells, Weald Park, Dunorlan Park Tunbridge Wells, Longmead Park and Tonbrige Park.
During school holidays I arrange visits to many places of interests, including Bewl water, Bedbury pinetum, Swanley Park, Raystead Animals sanctuary, Godstone farm.
At home I have a dedicated play room with easy access to an enclosed garden. We do art and craft in the dining room.
