My Care Inspectorate Grading is:
Hello and welcome to my Hedgehog’s Childminding website.
My name is Heather Hodge and I am a professional, caring and enthusiastic Childminder. I provide high quality, flexible homebased childcare at affordable prices. I pride myself on being a friendly, approachable and supportive person, with a passion for working with children.
I have been a Registered Childminder since 1997 so I have years of experience in the job and various training certificates covering everything from Food Hygiene, Child Protection, First Aid etc. through to Dyslexia, Asthma Awareness and Epilepsy.
I could never imagine doing anything else. It is truly a blessing to be able to help young ones reach their full potential and grow into amazing wee people.
Since the Care Inspectorate grading system was put in place I have consistently received ‘Very Good’ at every inspection.
I live with my husband Trey and three children Kieran, Ewan and Allana. My two older boys are now working and my younger daughter is in Secondary School. We have three cats, Xena, Ally and Fudge, who all have unique personalities and never cease to amaze us all with their antics.
My husband Trey is on my Registration Certificate and assists me with outings and various Nursery and School runs throughout the day. He can be a dab hand at craft time too! I feel that it’s nice for the children to have that interaction with a male figure and it brings a whole new dimension to the setting.
