“Huggles” is a home from home childcare setting, based in Packmoor, Stoke-on-Trent. We (Jackie & Sarah) are a childminding partnership with 2 part-time assistants and are all DBS cleared, Ofsted registered and paediatric First Aiders. Jackie has 20 years of childminding experience and Sarah over 9 years. We have also attended Safeguarding, Food Safety and Child Development courses on a regular basis. None of us smoke, and we have no pets.
As a partnership, we are able to offer childcare for 52 weeks per year (with the exception of weekends and bank holidays) We are open from 6a.m- 6p.m, and aim to be as flexible as possible in order to accommodate a variety of needs, including parents who work shifts or irregular hours.
We provide care for children of any age, from birth through to High School if required. We do school runs and before and after care (+ school holidays) for Packmoor Primary School, with whom we have well established and strong links. We are able to also collect children from after school clubs if required.
We aim to promote diversity, and to encourage freedom of choice and independence, whilst ensuring that the individual needs of each child are met. We believe that every child is entitled to be cared for in a safe, happy and loving environment, and aim to work closely with parents and guardians to provide such an environment.
