I am an Ofsted registered Childminder, gaining Outstanding for my last two inspections, 2011/2016
I have worked for 24 years as a childminder and I have three adult children. So I have a vast amount of personal experience alongside 1,000’s of hours as a professional childcare practitioner.
I attend a couple of drop-in sessions in the local area for childminders, carers and parents. These are held on Monday - Thursday mornings where the children learn to develop their personal, social and emotional skills and make friends with colleagues children. It also allows the children to become familiar with other childminders who can act as back up carers in emergencies or for holiday cover.
I have a BA (Hons) in Early Years, studying for seven years with the Open University alongside working full-time. My Paediatric First Aid and Safeguarding training is up to date.
I specialise in working with 0-3 year old children, concentrating on the most important, informative years, giving a good foundation for Nurseries and children's future lives. I only have two children a day, so I can offer very individual care to each child. I do NOT do nursery/school pick-ups.
