About us:

Hi, and thank you for stopping by our website, we are John and Melanie.


We have always been passionate about families and children, this has been reflected in most of our working lives, especially the last 10 years or so in working with vulnerable families and teaching in many schools in and around Milton Keynes.


We are aware of how busy life can be, if you add to that the unexpected things that come up it can often be difficult finding time to get it all done, especially if you have children. That's where we hope to help.


We offer flexible childcare cover from our home, catering for children from new born through to 14 years of age. Whether it's for a doctor's appointment that means you need to drop your child/children off for an hour, a family emergency, or you simply want a break for a few hours, just check our availability, book in and leave your children with us.


Our home provides a stimulating setting in which all children can become well-motivated, independent leaners.

why choose us?

With over 40 years of experience in raising children and teaching in Primary School settings you can rest assured that your children will be left in a fun, friendly, secure environment.


Here are a few reasons why we believe our setting is a great option for you and your child:


1) Children being Children - Whilst it is important to introduce and teach a healthy curriculum we also believe that children learn through playing, and having the time to express themselves in an environment that is safe and encouraging.


2) Increased Independence - Children are actively encouraged to be all that they can be in an environment that is safe. Our facilities ensure that children are given the time and attention they need to be independent learners, through their own personal exploration and investigations.


3) We will not tie you to any lengthy contracts, you simply pay for the service as and when you need it.


4) Flexible service during school term time.



As a registered childminder working with early years children we are required by law to be Ofsted Registered, which we are. 

Our Vision & Aims

Inspired to Learn, Confident to Achieve

The WholeWay House vision is to offer a service that allows children to be children, and parents are happy in the knowledge that their children are having fun whilst in our care. We aim to provide:

  • An environment that is vibrant, happy and has high expectations, and where laughter is regularly heard.
  • An environment that believes that every child can succeed and achieve.
  • An environment where children enjoy learning because they are encouraged to be independent thinkers.
  • An environment where children develop a sense of self belief and a love of learning, about their own culture and that of others around them.
  • An environment which embraces both indoor and outdoor learning.

To achieve this, we aim:

  • To provide a caring, nurturing and stimulating environment where all children feel safe, secure and happy.
  • To inspire children to achieve and celebrate their successes.
  • To maintain high expectations in all aspects of children’s learning.
  • To encourage children to embrace new challenges.
