“Unstructured Play Outdoors is Vital to a Healthy Childhood”

Babies

You can enjoy peace of mind knowing that your baby is being well cared for. We work closely with parents of babies to ensure that you feel involved in their experiences and development.

Toddlers

Toddlers have a lot of fun in Dora’s house. Everything we do with toddler’s is focused on them being at the centre of play and they learn through both play and the activities set out for them.

Pre-school

With a wide range of activities including arts and crafts, imaginative play and physical activities both outdoors and indoors, our pre-schoolers will be well equipped for bigger changes later.

Why Dora's House Childminding

Dora’s House is situated in a beautiful setting on the Comber Road close to Carryduff. As I am a childminder working with one assistant, we both aim to provide the very best childcare through forming close relationships with you and your child. The friendly, nurturing atmosphere makes children feel happy, comfortable and safe, and our outdoor environment and exciting activities ensure that children have lots of fun!

Dora's House Facilities

Dora’s House is based in an outdoor setting, with an acre of mature garden with a small “enchanted” forest area for children to explore and enjoy.

Inside is a large countryside house with plenty of space, where tasty vegetable-based home-cooked meals are cooked fresh and provided to kids at meal-times.

Art and Craft

We have lots of fantastic crafts to engage the creativity of your child, from great craft projects like homemade rocket ships to art projects like hallowe’en masks. These activities are the perfect way to create a day of fun for your little ones.

Being based in an outdoor setting, lots of our art and craft ideas come from nature, from drawing animals through to collecting and making things from sticks, stones and wood.

Dora's House - Nature-led Childcare

Hi, my name is Dorota (children know me as Dora!), owner of Dora's House and I am a registered childminder living in Belfast, in the BT7 BT8 area. My house (Dora's House) is a large 4 bedroom house with dedicated room for play, and a secure garden with outdoor play facilities. Dora's House provides the best possible service by ensuring that, through play and activity sessions, all children have fun whilst learning something new each day. Activities include, arts and crafts, role-play, toys and games, outdoor play equipment, and a wide range of books and toys are available for all ages, gender and cultural groups. Meals are also included during the day. I am only minutes away from some excellent recreational facilities including the play park beside the Botanic Gardens, rhymes session in the Library, and I generally attend a local mother/toddler group weekly for 2 hours. Occasional visits to Zoo, Museum or other attractions are also sometimes arranged. I cater for children of all ages, full-time and part time, so please get in touch anytime for a friendly chat and to arrange a visit! Visit my website here: www.dorashouse.co.uk
