• Please note: I shall be closing my doors for Maternity Leave from July 2019. Bee Happy Childminding will be reopening in spring 2020, so please do still get in touch if you are interested in childcare for next year. I am contactable via mobile, email and Facebook. All the best, Jacquelyn.

Welcome to Bee Happy Childminding!

My name is Jacquelyn Griffith and I am an Ofsted Registered home-based childminder in Blofield, where I live with my husband Andrew, young daughter Lily and Charlie the cat.

I have an NCFE Level 3 Home-Based Childcare Award along with an up to date Paediatric First Aid Certificate. I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and am a member of the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY).

I provide a childcare service in a safe, caring and fun environment for children from 6 months upwards. My home has adequate indoor space with plenty of toys, books and crafts suitable for all children, along with an enclosed rear garden perfect for messy play, growing fruit and vegetables and learning about nature.

Blofield is a lovely village with great amenities, meaning frequent trips to the park, shops, library and garden centre along with easy access to toddler groups.

I recognise that all children are unique and therefore ensure that all play and learning opportunities are tailored to the needs of the children in my care. Parents’ input into their child’s development is highly encouraged and I complete a daily diary and learning journey for each child to assist with our communication.

All activities are planned using the Early Years Foundation Framework (2017)

If you are interested in my services please do call for a chat. I meet with all interested parents / carers at a time suitable for you, where we can discuss you and your child’s needs. The meeting is a great opportunity to come see my home, to introduce you to my family and to see whether Bee Happy Childminding is right for you and your little ones.
