Childminding Play Centre

Welcome to Hyde Creek Childminding Play Centre!

To ensure safe and effective care, the maximum number of children allowed in the childminding play Centre is limited.

Please note you must remain in the facility while your child attends our childminding play Centre.

Health and Safety

Please help us provide the highest possible quality care for your child by ensuring that staff is continually updated on information regarding allergies, health care or behavioral challenges.

When your child is ill, please do not bring him or her to the play Centre. We are equipped to care for well children only.

Personal Belongings

Most children enjoy eating a snack during their stay at the play Centre. We encourage you to provide a nutritious snack and water each time your child visits the childminding play Centre. Please do not send nut or nut products due to risks associated with allergies to nuts. Please label all belongings that you bring to the childminding play Centre. This includes bottles and snack containers.

Separation Anxiety

Please say good-bye to your child and let them know when you will be back. This builds trust. Gradual entries are encouraged. Separation Anxiety is a normal and natural part of growing up. Children who have been fine staying on their own can suddenly become clingy.

Step 1: Stay in the room until your child feels comfortable
Step 2: Let your child know you will be leaving to work out (name the place) and that you will be back at (give them the time)
Step 3: Leave and wish them a good time playing.

We will do our best to ensure your child feels safe and secure.If your child is inconsolable after 5-10 minutes we will come and get you and suggest you try another time to make the experience a positive one for your child. Each child is unique in their own way and may take time getting comfortable in a new setting – We want to ensure our Play Centre is a happy place for all!

What we know: Your child will take clues from you- If you feel comfortable they may feel more comfortable. Please take your child to the washroom prior to dropping off * Snacks and water welcome – Please ensure your leave peanut free snacks.
