About our setting

About me

My name is Tara Grantham and previously I have trained as a lower primary teacher before deciding to become a childcare provider in the Chandlers Ford Area.

I live with my husband Matt and three older children with our bichon frise dog, Ernie. My husband is also registered as my assistant and although he does not work for me and has a job outside setting, he is one of my emergency contacts and able to cover and support on rare occasions. Matt is paediatric first aid trained with current DBS checks in place.

It is my intention to provide a safe, outstanding, stimulating environment where your child can thrive and florish enhancing their childhood experiences and learning in a safe loving family environment.

I am able to pick up from all local schools, pre schools and nurseries within the Chandlers Ford area.


I have a degree in lower primary education, level 3 in childcare, level 4 in safeguarding and current paediatric first aid.

I attend and have access to regular training to help support myself and the children in my care.  I also complete termly fire alarms. Also car insurance, liability insurance in place.

I have extensive procedures and policies in place  that are kept up to date and available to access on request.

Our Activities

Activity wise, we have access to various toddler and play groups but we put a real emphasis on being out and about having lots of adventures and new experiences.

As a part of being a forest childcare provider, our focus is on our local environment, learning through natural resources utilising our local areas, exploring the great outdoors in all weathers.

Activities such as:

  • Accessing local park areas
  • Manor farm day outs
  • Play trails
  • Wellie walks
  • Itchen Valley country Park
  • Visits to the New Forest, river Hamble and even Hilliar Gardens
  • …the list is limitless!

For transport I have a 9 seater car.


Our home facilities

We also have a good size enclosed garden with ride on toys, both sand and water play, planting, growing, etc.

Indoors there is a dedicated play room, although the children are open to use all of the downstairs, spilling our role play and fun throughout.

I have level three in home based childcare, level 4 safeguarding and full first aid training.

We have smoke alarms and a fire blanket. Emergency fire procedures are all in place and alarm practices are completed on regular intervals.
