T&C'S CHILDCARE SERVICES - REGISTERED CHILDMINDER THERESA GILFILLAN & CHERYL GILFILLAN
NEWS & EVENTS




As childminders we are always looking to have memorable occassions for the children. We have parties to celebrate birthdays, christmas, halloween, easter etc. These are always very fun and enjoyable for everyone involved and the children love coming up with ideas for games and entertainment.
  We had a very exciting and scary halloween  party this year with 15 of our children attending, dressing up and participating in our fun activities and games. We decorated the house and garden with lots of halloween decorations and props. We had a good variety of games for everyone, competitions and prizes, a large buffet for tea and a great selection of sweets and goody bags.


We had a "make the best mummy" competition with 2 volunteers to be turned into a mummy for a while
A fun game with music that everyone enjoyed

Making their own scary pumpkins









 We always have a birthday party for our children which includes birthday cake and presents and lots of party games and singing                                    We organised a very successful car boot sale that took place in the village inn in Cardenden on Saturday 25th September. The fundraising helped towards new toys and accessories for our service. We had a very good help and contribution from our parents in making the car boot sale possible.
