A little information on how Hide and Seek began


Tracy Hide is the founder of Hide and Seek. She first started in 2003 as an independent accredited childminder with a level 5 in childcare. In 2006 she received outstanding. Only 9% childminders achieve outstanding and have continued to get outstanding.


From September 2018 the setting is about to expanded. One of our main principles is outside exploring. Tracy has attended a Forest School Training Course and has inspired us to continue this into practice.


We have a purpose built Nursery that's fully equipped with a selection of new learning toys. The environment is safe and has plentiful opportunities for play which includes an open garden.

Parents can be always assured that their child is well cared for, as we work closely with families to support their child’s individual needs. Children are given healthy snacks and a home cooked meal, with an option to bring in a packed lunch if they wish. We also cater for any dietary needs. 


We work with other specialists to meet the needs of children with Special Education Needs and will work with parents to ensure that they have equal opportunities to access all activities at the setting.
