I am an Ofsted registered Accredited Childminder, I can accept Free Entitlement funding for 2,3 & 4 year olds, I also accept company Childcare vouchers. I am a qualified primary school teacher that has now been childminding for over 5 years. Occasionally I go into schools on a voluntary basis or on supply to keep my practice upto date. I hold Early Years Professional Status and am constantly doing various courses to keep my CPD fresh. I have recently undertaken a Makaton course so that I can further develop the children's communication skills. Alongside my professional life I am Mum to Hannah 22 who is currently training to be a teacher, Katie who is 10 and is in year 5 at Fynamore School and lastly Imogen who is 6 and is in Year 1 at Fynamore. I am married to Gordon a Senior Design Enginner for Sky TV - he works in London during the week. We have a cat Leo and two Netherlands Dwarf rabbits Flopsy and Peter.
I have been working with children in the Early Years for over 10 years, I am a member of the Cheeky Monkees and Little Acorns childminding groups in Calne. I use the EYFS to underpin all that I do and offer a warm, loving, secure stimulating home from home environment with lots of fun educational toys & activities. I am flexible, reliable and professional and aim to meet the needs of all the families that I look after. I can provide references on request.
The children and I go out and about to local playgroups & community/childminding group events and activities. We also make regular visits to the library, local parks, Whitehall Garden Centre & Lydiard Park . During the school holidays we go further afield to places such as Westonbirt Aboretum, Brokers Wood & Bristol Zoo. We also have lots of fun at home doing activities such as cooking, singing & dancing, dressing up, arts & crafts, storytime, growing our own veg & flowers in the garden, sand and water play and of course free play.
