Ofsted Registered Childminder 

I have been a professional child minder in the Westbourne Park area for 16 years, who employs a variety of early approaches to education. I am creative, proactive and enjoy all aspects of childcare from taking care of the child's needs and providing a creative environment for children in early years. I am a confident, highly knowledgeable worker, dedicated to creating a stimulating, encouraging safe atmosphere for every child's individual needs. During my 16 years of experience, I have developed strong skills in supporting young children and I am generally passionate about providing the best childcare and play experience and will help children discover new things everyday. I always put the children, their education and development first and foremost in everything that I do. 

My setting has access to two playgrounds where I take the children to play as I believe that play is an important part of the child's early development. Playing helps young childrens brains to develop and for their language and communication skills to mature. We regularly attend local play groups where the children can take part in painting, music workshops and many other activities. In addition to this, we also take trips to the library. I always provide the children with healthy snacks, and anything else they require. 

I have completed thorough training in child protection, health and safety, first aid, child behaviour, EYFS and the stages of child development which are updated regularly. Through this, I have learnt the fundamentals of childhood development and caring for children, learnt how to care for children, nurture their development and make sure their environment is safe and positive. This alongside by sixteen years of experience has made me a successful child care worker. Some of the skills and qualities I possess as a result, are decision making skills where I act quickly and make appropriate judgements to fix any problems, being patient as every child is going though different stages of learning. As a child minder, I must deal with certain situations where my patience is very useful and I believe being patientg with children is key for their educational and emotional development. 

I have taken care of children from many different backgrounds and cultures. I respect all religions, cultures and beliefs equally, I have excellent communications skills and make sure all parents are listened to and respected. I always had a great parternship working with all parents and thus I have always had positive feedback from all parents I have worked with. as I believe children benefit when the people most involved in their everyday care and learning have good, meaningful communication.
