Mrs Beth Chiverton

I am an enthusiastic, creative and passionate childminder with 3 years teaching experience and a Bachelor of Education degree in Primary English. I offer a lovely outdoor space with sand pit, water play, gardening opportunities and mud kitchen; a separate playroom with a variety of age appropriate, stimulating resources which are regularly rotated and updated to suit the child's needs. There is also a calming, homely lounge area and a separate napping room. I also take the children out on excusions regularly, to the park, woods, beach, National Trust properties, groups, museums, farms and soft play areas in the local community. We also have a fantastic allotment in the village, where we grow and tend to our own produce, do Forest School activities with nature and welly walks. Additionally, I have a certificate in Level 2 and 3 Safeguarding and Paediatric First Aid. Furthermore, my home is ideally located right next door to Parrett and Axe Primary School and Mosterton Pre-School.
