Come on Get involved ! We Buttercup Lane Childminders have fully pledged our support and joined “we are child friendly leeds”
We already know that Leeds is the best city in the UK – but we want to make Leeds “the best child friendly city in the UK”.
Leeds…A child friendly city where all children are valued, supported, enjoy growing up and look forward to a brighter future!
Our City is putting young people first.

Leeds City Council have listened to thousands of young voices to find our what is important to the younng people of Leeds and they have
come up with a TOP 12 wish list they feel will make Leeds a child friendly city.

To find out more about The 12 Wishes and child friendly leeds follow the links.

Did you know that the United Nations have a Convention on the Rights of the Child – As childminders in the community understanding and applying these rights are paramount to supporting each child in our care. Every single Right listed in the convention is supported by child friendly leeds but as childminders there are a number that stand out
Right 3. All who work with children should work towards what is best for the child.
Right 12. Children have a right to an opinion in adult decisions which affect them, their opinion should be taken seriously.
Right 23. Children with a disability should get special care and support so they can lead full and indepentent lives.
Right 28. Children have the right to an education.
Right 31. Children have the right to play.

We wonder how many people know Right 42. The government should make the convention known to all adults, children and young people.

If you want to find out how we adopt all the practices into our home and setting here at Buttercup Lane Childminders speak to either Karl or Lia.

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 Aiden, Jake and Abi 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.

We had a suprise for the last hour or so today for the children .. Buttercup Lane’s very own Mr Tumble ‘East Ardsley Style’ of course.

Not quite sure who had the most fun the children, the parents or Mr Tumble himself but it rounded off the day nicely.

The fun has not stopped there and since loading the photograph onto the Pacey Website we have been inundated with appearance requests.

We have just completed a training course for the Revised Early Years Foundation Stage 2012. More details to follow ….

Since the beginning of June here at Buttercup Lane Childminders we have been getting excited over this years Olympic Games and then there has been Euro 2012. We have had early morning fun in the sun with the football in the garden practicing our footballing skills and dare we say that some of the skills shown were better than some of the England skills on show over the last few weeks. We have also been following the Olympic Torch Travels and especially today as it came into Morley. We have a number of fun and educational yet physical activities planned for whilst the olympics are on for all our children. Not forgetting Wimbledon, so we are dusting off the tennis rackets, its going to be one full packed summer and we intend to enjoy every minute of it.

We attended a training course yesterday that was Early Years Fun Stuff linked directly to revised EYFS. We have lots of fresh and exciting ideas for fun activities that all fall into the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. We are going to introduce some of the activities into June’s activity plan and we will see how successful there are. Ask us about the new Birthday Boxes a great idea for all the children to get involved in birthday celebrations, Mini-me pegs, Book of the week & 3 item story time.
