Acrewood (Janet Currell)

I am an Ofsted registered childminder and offer a welcoming and warm home from home environment for the children i care for. I have been in childcare for 22 years and a childminder for 12 of those. I live with my Husband and 3 children ages 17, 14 & 3, I have a large garden and a dedicated playroom. I have a level 3 in childcare along with my first aid, i under extra training when necessary and relavant to the children in my care.

It's important that the children are happy, relaxed and enjoy their time at my setting for them to develop to their full potential. Each day is different as I like to keep a varied routine with lots of activities to offer an exciting and stimulating environment, with the opportunity to help and encourage the children to develop at their own pace, each child is induvidual and unique. We spend alot of time when possible outdoors and out in our environment exploring the world around us, we attend local attractions, parks, the beach, toddler groups, the woods & many more. The children love the freedom and independance this brings for them. I have small ratios to be able to dedicate my time during the day equally to each and every child and give them the opportunities to grow and develop before they leave for school.

Local offer


I have become a specialist childminder for SEND children and have undertaken extensive training to do this. It has been a fantasic opportunity to become part of the local offer and extend my setting to provide places to children with additional needs. I work closely with other settings, parents and other proffessionals to provide support and consistancy for the childs development.

Each child is treated with respect and is unique. Regular assessments are done along with observations to update the chidlrens development folders.
