Alice Leyman

As an Accredited, experienced childminder, I provide the opportunity for positive play in an encouraging, inclusive and caring environment with many stimulating activities in the home and out and about in Swanage and the Purbecks including local clubs and groups, trips to the beach and play parks. I have a free flow to outside space suitable for all ages. My setting is mainly a child-led environment with adult support and encouragement as needed. Working in partnership with local preschools and other childminders, where required, I can offer flexible hours to suit you and your children. 15 and 30 hours government free funding for 2, 3 and 4 years old is also available.
