BAOJanine Haenel and Tom Dobinson are Ofsted registered childminders in Bradford on Avon. We are open Monday to Friday from 8.00 to 18.00. We are closed on Bank holidays, the week over the Christmas and New Year period. We do take two weeks holidays throughout the year, for this we will give plenty notice to arrange alternative childcare.

We offer full day and complete day care to children from 3 months to 5 years all year, as well as before and after school and holiday care for 5 to 14 year olds.


We are located at in the north part of Bradford on Avon on Wisley Road, set in an accessible part of town in walking distance of the town, Library, Tithe Barn, community groups, several play parks, farms and open countryside just waiting to be explored and have adventures. Our town house setting offers a very unique, homely and comfortable feel and just like at home all children will come together for meal and snack times at the dining table. Our back garden and the various play parks close by offer a green space for the children to play outdoors. Our play room and living room and the rest of the house offer inspiring spacious play and work spaces and quiet, comfortable areas for resting and sleeping.

Our house is very easily accessible by public transport or car providing on-street parking.
A drop off and collection service between the house and schools/pre-schools is included and subject to availability.
