Hippy Kids at Home is a childcare business managed by Beccy and Charlie Bourne. We are a husband and wife team and have been childminding for over 10 years. We have three daughters of our own who also love spending time with small children.
Beccy decided to make childcare her career shortly after becoming a Mum in 2006, she especially loves the nurturing side of the business and has a background in performing arts.
Charlie previously worked as a chef and decided to join the business when Beccy was looking for an assistant in 2008. He uses his skills to cook delicious meals for the children and loves projects involving cardboard boxes!
Both of us are creative and love being outside surrounded by nature.
We are both level 3 trained in childcare and are OFSTED registered childminders. We were inspected in December 2015. We were pleased to be graded as a ‘strong’ GOOD.
Everyone at Hippy Kids At Home is trained in paediatric first aid and attends refresher courses regularly.
We work with two wonderfully creative assistants who are studying towards their childcare qualifications. The children we care for have strong relationships with all of us adult carers which is something we are very proud of. People always comment about how our setting has a strong family, ‘home from home’ feel.
