1.1 Who are we?

Hi there and welcome to Playful Penguins. You will find as you browse around this website that lots of the pages are under construction, sorry about that!

Playful Penguins is a new (ish – we’ve been operating for just over a year, and have been graded by Ofsted as ‘Good’) venture based in Westbury on Trym, Bristol; the website is currently a work in progress so make sure you check back regularly or feel free to contact us. In the meantime we have thrown the essentials together to give you a small taster into what playful penguins is all about.

Playful Penguins is run by Hayley and Toni; one of us is an experienced nanny and the other an experienced mum and qualified Primary School teacher. During the course of our careers we have either been working in or looking for, some type of childcare and have often been surprised at the different types of care offered within different settings.

This is where Playful Penguins aims to be different. We have set up as childminders not because we want to be home with our own children, not because we want to make vast sums of money but simply because we love working with children! We have brought together the best elements of childminding and mixed them up with the best elements of a nursery setting.

The end result is that you get a warm, well equipped and loving home from home environment for your children to attend; dedicated experienced childminders that are happy to bake cakes with the little ones or jump in muddy puddles on a rainy day.

If you want to find out what makes Playful Penguins so special get in touch otherwise feel free to have a nose around the site as it develops.
