Ben Parry – Childminder

I am an Ofsted-registered childminder and full-time carer to my young daughter and son.

To support children with their learning and development I provide fun activities including music, cooking, art, nature walks and gardening. I take the children to a number of local activities which gives them the opportunity for socialising and playing.

I work from 7am to 8pm, although I can be flexible around these hours so please ask. I am available for weekends, bank holidays and overnight care.

Please feel free to get in touch to ask any questions

Wheatfen Forest Schoolhi-col-wheatf-logo

Wheatfen Forest School provides a range of nature-based outdoor learning for children and young people. We work with schools to create bespoke session plans ranging from one day to a whole term, weaving the curriculum into inspiring Forest School activities. We currently run a Forest School Club (for 7-11 year olds) and Young Explorers Club supported by South Yare Wildlife Group (for 7-12 year olds interested in nature and science) alternately on Saturday mornings 10-12, and Tiny Acorns (for children – walking to 4yrs- and their carers) on Friday mornings during term time 10-12.

Forest School activities will depend on the experience, needs and interests of participants, but typical examples of what a session might include are:

  • Games, adventurous and imaginative play
  • Bushcraft
  • Creating things from natural materials such as clay, wood and plant pigments
  • Mud kitchen
  • Using tools, such as knives and saws for green woodworking
  • Nature exploration and natural history
  • Mastering knots & lashings
