Home From Home is a cabin based child care setting in the beautiful village Wherwell. We believe children learn best through play and through managing their own risks in the great outdoors, offering support to achieve this when needed. The lead childminder has a degree in early years and over 7 years experience of working with young children. All staff have paediatric first aid and safeguarding training.
The aim is for all children to feel relaxed and safe, it is a Home from Home environment.
