This project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund with a contribution from Torbay council.

The three year project which focuses on teaching young children about Torbay's heritage, is being delivered by Torbay's childminders in partnership with Brixham Heritage Museum, Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust, Torbay Council and Torquay Museum.

Five of our childminders have gained the prestigious Bristol Standard award.

We will deliver a range of early year's activities such as mini digs, storytelling, trips and guided walks to sites of local historical importance.

The scheme is only open to registered childminders.

All sessions require pre-booking by phoning Brixham Museum on 01803 856267 or emailing project coordinator Louise Cresswell at
