Well ………. Schools Out for Summer

We made it and the Summer holiday period is here, we have an action packed Summer planned so please if you want or need any childcare or extra days please just call. 9th July was Kirkstall Festival and we had a blast running a stall to raise funds for our wonderful Radio Aires – Cash for Kids Charity. ( Do you know that we have recently been made Ambassadors  – check us out ) We had prizes, books, bottles, doughnuts and cakes & buscuits on our stall but the star prize that one lucky winner could walk away with was a Helicopter Flight. We raised some much needed money for Cash for Kids but as the Star Prize Ticket was not pulled out so we ran a blind auction, lots of bids came in and one person from Tingley was the lucky winner with a winning bid of £50. We cant publish the name yet as they are on holiday and its a present for a family member.

Check out the Breeze Festivals in the Summer Holidays  where our fellow Ambassadors from Leeds City Councils – Child friendly Leeds will be present at all events. Please note that the East Ardsley Breeze has been MOVED to Blackgates this year – so hopefully it will be larger and attract more people.

We have planned our fun and exciting trips out this year and based the locations on the interests of our Buttercup family, they will not be dissappointed. Flights, Chocolate, Films, Sand, Sea & Mountains, Farmers, Tunnels, Animals and Wildlife & lots and lots of water –  are all included so lets see where our Fun Bus takes us away, but dont forget that our great British weather is really unpredictable so its Wellies and Sun Tan Cream all the way.

Its very exciting here at the moment with New Starters as well as children moving up through the years at school, some moving to reception and nursery, but as always to go with the great there is always some bad news….. One of our Buttercups is leaving due to moving homes. Its a very sad time when we have to say “goodbye” but we know that there will always be places in our home & our hearts for all our Buttercups no matter how old you are ……  and everyone is welcome to come and visit anytime.

Its mega busy with Holidays –  Birthday Parties & Proms, young and old are in their best gear and looking beautiful to party the afternoons, evening and sometimes if we are lucky the night times too. Our very own Lia celebrated her big 40 in June …. Think she is taking the celebrations to the extreme as we have at least things to do in the next 6 months to keep an eye out for her updates.

Stay Safe this summer and think ahead – its only 6 or so weeks until school starts …………. oh yes and its only  21 weeks until CHRISTMAS !

Love to all xx

We have also seen some big leaps forward with some of our older children, Some are starting nursery – some are starting junior school and some have taken the giant leap and started High School …. Where does the time go. We wish all the very best of luck to all our Buttercup Babies no matter how big or small.

At Buttercup Lane Childminders – we have another 3 new children. What a week it has been. We cannot wait until we are firing on all cylinders – we have so many fun and exciting things planned , so we welcome <strong>Aiden, Jake and Abi </strong>to our extended family.

Buttercup Lane Childminders are commited to delivering exception child care to each and every child with in our care. We focus on each childs interests and we introduce new activities for all, keeping learning fresh and most importantly fun. We construct the “scaffolding” and we let the children use their own ideas to build their knowledge and experience everything that they need as individuals to further their development.

This week we have been on two training courses. These were very interesting and we have learnt a great deal to support our child care.
