Created in 2007 by experienced childminders as a one-stop-shop tailor made for childminders, their aim was to keep bringing new resources to help childminders & early years childcare providers in their work with children. They realised how difficult it was for childminders to find craft materials in small enough amounts and this still remains one of our priorities today.

We are aiming to provide a range of resources which provide good basic, purposeful play activities in the prime & specific areas of learning for all children whilst with their childminders, early years childcare providers, EYFS setting, parents & carers. A wide range of educational resources will ensure your provision is meeting the learning & development requirements of the EYFS. Toys & games which encourage imaginative play, social development, language & communication, physical development & problem solving are of vital importance to all children & our toys & creative crafts are selected for their early years educational value. We also take ecology & conservation seriously and try where possible to purchase from suppliers who use sustainable materials & good practice. In addition, we try to recycle* where possible to help the environment and to help keep costs low.

We would be happy to hear from you if you have a suggestion or know of a product you think we should stock, so please feel free to email us with your suggestions to sales@thechildmindingshop.co.uk
