Hi, my name is Jessica and I am a Ofsted Registered childminder living in Trowbridge. I live with my Husband Paul and we have two daughter's; Niamh and Moiya.
With a passion for looking after children I strive to provide a stimulating and safe environment for day care in my home where I work with an Assistant.
childminding: Full time or part time
School Holiday Club
I am very creative, relaxed and feel I provide a Home from Home experience for children in my care.
We have a safe enclosed garden and lots of garden toys.
Inside there's two good sized playrooms and also a living room area that we use as our quiet space. We have tons of books and toys as well as a creative corner where we can do messy play and arts and crafts. There are two big built in cupboards that store tons of toys so I can alternate the toys that are out weekly.
We like to encourage the children to learn through free play aswell as organised activities.
The children in my care have access to materials each day for dressing up, role play activities, singing, dancing, baking and many more activities.
I use the Early years foundation stage as a structure for helping children in my care to reach their full potential.
Each child has their own area on the wall in the playroom for displaying art work and anything they want to display that has been created in their time in my care. We use diary's for each child as a way of documenting and informing parents of their development.
I arrange outdoor activities in my garden for dry days and take children on trips to local parks, libraries, childminding groups and soft play areas.
I also arrange occasional trips further a field to places such as Brookers wood, Westonbirt Arboretum and Bristol Zoo.
My ofsted registration number is Ey441246
