Welcome to 'Sticky Fingers' !!!

"My name is Paula Baker, in July 1994 I qualified as a Nursery Nurse. I have over 24 years experience in childcare and enjoy being a mum. I established Sticky Fingers in March 2003 and aim to provide quality childcare for children and their families and to share my knowledge, experience and passion with others. Throughout this exciting adventure I have been awarded Outstanding by Ofsted 3 times. My involvement and interest in children and their learning led me to gain my Early Years Teacher Status and also a BA Degree with First Class Honours in Early Childhood Studies".

'Sticky Fingers Childminding' is a home based environment with high quality childminders and assistants providing nurturing care and education. We have high ratios of 1 adult to 3 early years children, giving nine children the opportunity to form special relationships and make friends, within a small family setting. School children are able to attend before, after school and during the holidays, this is helpful for growing families and provides continuity for each child.  A great opportunity for all children to learn about the needs of others and gain from each others experiences.

"It has been a delight to be involved in many children and their families lives over the years and to see the positive impact that Sticky Fingers has had for so many. Sticky Fingers has grown and we have opened Tiny School as an extension of our service".

'Sticky Fingers Tiny School' opened in September 2016, this is to provide a small homely environment for twenty children aged 2,3,and 4 years to take their next step before moving onto 'Big School'. We have a high quality experienced team who support each child to meet their full potential. Children learn, develop and have fun through activities, and experiences that we plan. We provide opportunities for children to be part the community and have close links with our local primary schools. Children develop confidence and are prepared for a smooth transition to school.  We are also able to care for primary school aged children, out of school hours.

"Our aim at Sticky Fingers is that every child is loved, cared for and supported in their early years and that we build happy memories and a secure foundation for their future. In doing this we focus on each child's interests; we support their learning and development through child led activities and play. We ensure parents are actively involved in their children's learning and developments too".

We meet the aims of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We ensure that children achieve the five every child matters outcomes; staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well being.
