Amanda Phillips - Holly Lodge Childcare

**OPEN - SPACES AVAILABLE FOR ALL AGE GROUPS **Hello! I'm Amanda. I am an 'Outstanding' graded Ofsted registered childminder (last inspection Feb 2020). I have been a childminder for the past 9 years. Eight of which were in Kent and the past year in Lincolnshire. 

I live with my husband and our 10 year old son. I am based between Spilsby and Boston just off the A16. I care for children from 6 months to 12 years. 

There is a dedicated playroom which provides access to a large assortment of toys, books and resources. We are starting to follow the curiosity approach, and offer loose parts play (dependent on age of child, type of loose part play offered). I have a safe and secure garden with wooden playhouse, mud kitchen, sand/water pit, mark making boards and lots of bikes, scooters, hula hoops, balls etc.. We have a Vegetable patch that the children help grow all different types of fruits and vegetables, and chickens. I will also be introducing forest school activities.  I am open from 7am to 6pm however times may be negotiable outside of these.

I am available for drop off and collection from local schools including Stickney Primary School, Sibsey, Toynton, Mareham Le Fen and Spilsby.

I can also offer holiday only childcare, and adhoc childcare if space allows for children of all ages.

I use a secure online system called Baby's Days that interacts with parents for daily diaries, photos, invoicing, and learning journeys so you can track your child's progress at any time.

I am able to offer the 30 hours funded childcare for eligible children, and accept the tax free childcare vouchers

I am able to offer sibling discounts and full time discounts
