Ruth Dixon

Childminder in Strensall, York


After working as a teacher in the Early Years and a pre- school manager for the last 20 years, I have decided to focus on creating a home from home environment to provide high quality childcare. I provide exciting play opportunities to enable your child to learn new skills, building on their previous experiences. I have a purpose built playroom with toilet and a garden that provides a variety of outdoor play opportunities. Depending on your needs I charge by the hour or by the session and provide all meals and snacks during that period. I offer term time, holiday cover, and all year contracts. By prior arrangement I can also offer overnight care and weekend cover. I am registered for all ages from birth to 17 year olds, please feel free to contact me to arrange a visit or to discuss your needs further.
Registered childminders work in their own homes, caring for babies and children in small groups. They work to the EYFS and are inspected by Ofsted.
