Rainbow Kids Childminding 
Victoria Taylor, Dunkenshaw Crescent, LA1 4LQ
I love childminding because I enjoy the opportunities for real world learning. I am a master picnic-maker and we go to the beach, the woods, the park to learn. I think it’s where children learn best. The emphasis in my setting is on play and fun.  My husband also works for Rainbow Kids Childminding.  As well as daytime care, I also do school drop-offs and school pick-ups for children at Moorside Primary School and have a separate area where the bigger kids can get arty or do role play games away from the little ones if they prefer some peace and quiet.
