My name is Severine, I am an Ofsted registered childminder and I offer a childcare service called Quality Childcare. It is a home based childcare service that is organised to operate like a nursery in the Maida Hill area of London with the help of an experienced childminder assistant, my mum Valentine. I am Black British and my mum's nationality is St Lucian.
We are loving, playful and genuine people whose passion it is to provide a good childcare service and to support parents with any needs they may have with their child's development. We are a good childcare option as we offer an environment that enables your child to express and develop their play and development. Children in our care have use of a spacious garden on two levels which has a range of outdoor toys- Climbing frame with an attached slide, Playhouse, sand & water trays, trampoline, Mud Kitchen, tricycles, see saws and balls. We have two indoor play rooms and a seperate sleep room.
The rooms are child orientated, colourful and filled with toys and equipment for children of all different ages. Quality Childcare is situated next to Paddington Recreation ground, Maida Vale library and Little Venice canal, which are, places we often walks to. My experience of working at a senior position in Day Nurseries and with ongoing training I am able to put into practice routines and activities that will promote the wellbeing and development of children of all ages.
Our childcare setting was graded a GOOD early years setting by OFSTED in our last inspection, which took place in March 2016.
Parents are kept informed about their child's learning and development through our own unique online software program; Quality Childcare, which can be download from an App Store. Parents have a secured android app or computer access to their child daily routine and planned activities. We use this system to effectively monitor children's progress from their starting points which enables more targeted support throughout their time in our care and it also enables us to observe children so opportunities for children to solve problems independently and improve children's learning through play is given to each child in our care. Parents can contribute to their child's learning and development by adding their own comments, videos and photos.
A settling in period is given to any child starting in our care. A new child will attend for a few hours on each of their parents chosen days for two weeks, before starting on their parents required start date.
