Early Years Teacher and Ofsted

  • Blue Button on Facebook

A very warm welcome and thank you for taking the time to look at Blue Button Childcare.  My name is Sam Heaven and I'm based in Bury, Greater Manchester.  I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder and I first opened my home in January 2018 after being an Early Years teacher for a few years.  I only provide care for EYFS children so that we can go on lots of adventures without the contrstaints of school runs.


At the moment, I am looking for a terrific toddler and their lovely grown ups to join our fantastic Blue Button Family from September 2020, with settling in sessions to begin before this.  Please have a nosey around to see if you think our families will be a good fit and please feel free to get in touch

Children are nurtured, educated and celebrated in a loving family home by a passionate and experienced Early Years teacher.


Families are welcomed, valued and respected at Blue Button Childcare as we work together to provide the best care and experiences for the children.

Blue Button provides children with the best of both worlds - an excellent EYFS education in a safe, warm and nurturing home.  
Children are encouraged to explore, play, learn and have lots of fun by taking part in a wide range of activities and excursions based around the things they love to do. 
Blue Button provides peace of mind for parents/carers because children are looked after by a caring and committed Early Years professional who "always puts the children first and caters for all their needs and encourages child-led learning."  
Blue Button days are structured around each child's well being and everyone's needs and routines are taken into account to create a happy medium that works each day.
Blue Button was founded by an Early Year's teacher, but more importantly by a loving mum.  These different perspectives helped to establish a successful childminding business, and as it's grown, so have the bonds with the children and their parents.  Within the first 12 months, it wasn't just a childminding setting anymore, it  became a Blue Button Family!
