About Me

Hazey Dayz childminding has been established since 2008.

I work from home which is situated in Deepcar, Sheffield, close to local amenities and schools. My home is registered with Ofsted and I use the downstairs living room, kitchen and garden and first floor bathroom during minded hours.

Hazey Dayz has grown since 2008 to become one of the biggest and most respected Childminders in North Sheffield, 90% of our mindees have come from word of mouth, which speaks volumes for the service I provide to you and your children.

I have worked extremely hard to receive an Ofsted OUTSTANDING grade and will continue to work hard to provide the best care I can give to the children who attend Hazey Dayz.

When I first opened Hazey Dayz I looked at it from a parents point of view, what would I want for my daughter and what would I want to know. Over the years I have learned so much and if feel like my business improves daily and I feel so lucky that I get to do a job that I absolutely love in my own home.

School drop off/pick up

My Childcare Philosophy

I feel every child deserves to be safe, to be loved, to have friends to play with, to have fun and learn new things, to eat healthy food and to live a balanced life.

A child’s early years are the building blocks of life and I am committed to giving each child the individual attention that they need.

Leaving your child in the care of someone else is a difficult decision for any parent, but rest assured your child will be safe, well looked after, but most of all happy!

Hazey Dayz gives your child a home from home feel. It is important that children get lots of opportunities to play outdoors and we go out in all weathers! We have a variety of equipment for all ages, so they can not only play and have fun, but they can also learn whilst doing it!

Not only do I provide children with a great place to have fun, there is also a strong focus on the importance of early education. I follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) and Every Child Matters document produced by the department for education and skills.

The youngest children are encouraged to learn through interesting and exciting play opportunities, planned to each child’s individual needs and interests, helping their understanding of friendship, co operation, caring, sharing and fair play, working with parents is key to their learning and development.

As the children get older, their learning experiences become more structured and they will experience more focused opportunities, learning about numbers, letters and sounds, creativity and the world around them.

Here at Hazey Dayz we offer flexible care for your child which is essential for you as working parents.
You are welcome to come and visit Hazey Dayz upon arrangement.
