I have been a registered Childminder for twenty years; I have had two Outstanding Ofsted inspections, 2007 and 2011. I care for children aged from eight weeks to eight years, before and after school between 8am to 6pm full time. I am flexible as possible for parents. I attend play groups with the children and visit libraries, parks, am a member of our local Children's Centre, where the children have access to sand and water, painting, arts and crafts, music, singing, dressing up, role play, outdoor play, and lots more, we go out every day so the children have a stimulating environment inside and out.
I have back up care so should I be unavailable to provide care, I can arrange for alternative care for the child/ren so that parents are not worried for childcare. I am a Sponsored Childminder for Westminster Children's Services, and am qualified to provide early learning for the two, three and four year old entitlement. I accept childcare vouchers, and Family Tax Credits.
I am a member of PACEY (Professional Association for Childcare in Early Years) and also have PACEY Public Liability Insurance, a Certificate in First Aid; Child Protection/Safeguarding Certificate; plus an NVQ in Childcare and Education and I work towards the EYFS early learning goals. I update my training regularly. I have Policies and Procedures that I put into practice, I use PACEY Contract forms and parents are required to sign them on request.
