About Me

Hi my name is Heidi. I live in the Cheylesmore area of Coventry. I have been childminding for coming up to 17 years now. I child mind children between the ages of 6 months to 11 years old.

I have a degree in Childhood and Youth studies from the Open University. I We learn from each other and make it a caring environment.

I have been married to Simon for 26 years. We lived all over the country so we are used to making new friends.

We have 2 boys aged 23 and 20

My Experience

As I said I have been childminding for 17 years, childminding a range if age groups and abilities.

I have child minded children from a very young 6 months to 15 years. I have also child minded and continue to child mind children with different abilities be it due to their age or a difficulty they may have.

All children are included in all activities homework after school, craft activities, topic work in the summer holidays.

We do a lot of craft work; discussion and relationship building.

All early years children have their own diaries which they take home on a weekly basis with photos showing what they have been doing throughout the week. I go to several toddler groups and parks. We feed the ducks and go out and about in the local area.

All early years children have their own planning concentrating on their learning and development and ensuring that they are able to play with their peers as much as possible.

We do a lot of communication work encouraging vocabulary knowledge and social communication skills.

Before young children go to school or school based nursery every effort is made to make their transition as seamless as possible.

Every effort is made to ensure good communication and teamwork with parents. Without you all this is not possible

I undertake ongoing training throughout the year to keep up to date with the current requirements of the job.

I qualified as a SENCO and added a second degree to my history degree from Portsmouth University in Childhood and Youth Studies from the Open University.

All parents are Invited to come and see me to discuss theirs and their child's needs where an interest in the setting is made.
