Tickenham Tots (Cindy Ellison)

Located in large spacious property in Tickenham, with big garden, and great indoor and out door play and educational resources and equipment. Graded OUTSTANDING by Ofsted 2015/16. Tickenham is a perfect location for people passing through, to and from work. Current clients come from Clevedon, Nailsea, Tickenham and Weston. I currently have an assistant to help provide quality and FUN childcare.

I have NVQ level 3.and able to have funded children and also accept various childcare vouchers. 

We have a caravan "PLAY POD", large mud kitchen, 2 storey play house, outdoor covered play space, cuddle corner (pets) etc, to name a few of the outdoor resources.  We enjoy regular walks down the lane in our semi rural location, to see the cows and sheep in the fields, and splash in muddy puddles!  We also have regular trips to Noahs Ark Zoo Farm, and other local play grounds.

We have a 12 seater minibus, to enable us to get out and explore the local area too!

Local offer


i am working towards becoming a Specialist Childminder (SEND). This is a joint project between North Somerset Council and Springboard Opportunity Group that aims to develop childminder's skills and confidence is supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

I have attended North Somerset inclusion training, and have a commitment to attending further training to support the needs of children with additional needs.  I will have access to the Specialist Childminder coordinator who is available to provide support and guidance around meeting the individual needs of your child. in addittion, i will have access to a North Somerset Area SENCO from the Early Years and Childcare service for advice and guidance.

My setting has a wide variey of animals, which benefit many children.This can benefit children both physically, emotionally and also allow contact with such animals/birds for which many may not have access to.

My setting has a wide variety of SENSORY environments and activities, to further stimulate and encourage interest, curiosity and play.
