Morgan McGrath (Childminder) - Curious Kids Childminding

Hello, I’m Morgan Mcgrath

I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Cudworth, Barnsley. I also offer school drop-off and collection at Birkwood Primary School.

My usual working hours are 7 until half 5 , Monday to Friday but may start earlier or finish later if needed.

I am passionate about the benefits of outdoor play and the experiences that children can gain from being outdoors. I have a very big back garden which provides access to a range of outdoor activities (including but not limiting to: climbing frames , sand, mud kitchen, natural resource, sensory wall and walk, busy board, music wall, chalk boards, water play and much more) and resources for children to access on a free-flow basis; in addition to a vast range of resources and activities inside.
I provide your children with lots of open ended resources to help them use there imagination and open ended play. We do lots of sensory and messy play to enrich your children’s senses, this is part of our everyday free flow, we certainly don’t shy away from getting our hands dirty.
I have an extensive knowledge of child development, including SEND experience, and strongly appreciated the importance of positive attachments.

Children will be welcomed into a warm, friendly environment, where they can feel safe and secure, which in succession, will enable them to meet their full potential.

Furthermore, I strongly believe that parent-partnership is key in any childcare setting. Therefore, as well as working closely with you throughout your child’s time at Curious Kids, we aim to make any transition period as seemless as possible for both yourself and your child.

I have two children of my own aged 8 and 3. We usually enjoy lots of trips out in the week these include : farms , museums, groups, libarary, the local park Or even a puddle jumping adventure through the local environment.
We also have a family dog called Winnie.

I have a level 3 in childcare and education as well as completed the childminder pre-reg course.
I have first aid training, as well as food hygiene and safeguarding training. I am also in the process of becoming a curiosity approach accredited setting
