|School Pickups||Childcare Qualifications|
I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I am married with a nine year old daughter, Hollie and have twins boys, Ben and Max who will be 3 shortly. We live in Banstead, Surrey within walking distance of Banstead High Street.
I have been inspected by Ofsted and was graded overall "GOOD" with "Outstanding" aspects.
My house is open-plan, bright and child-friendly with plenty of space to play and a downstairs toilet. I have lots of fun toys for all ages; musical instruments, games, puzzles, role-play kitchen and play food, dolls, cars, dressing up clothes, lego etc. Children also enjoy arts and craft and cooking. We celebrate different events throughout the year with fun activities. Children have their own art folder and also can take their craft bits home at the end of the day to show parents.
I can take the children to toddler groups, the library for story time or childminder sessions for messy play activities. I have a secure garden with a large decked play area with sandpit and playhouse and a lawn area to play on with a swing and slide.
I follow the Early Years Foundation stage to encourage learning and development through play. Children have their own journals which provides a little window into their world whilst at my setting with information on what they have eaten, naps taken and photos of activities and how they link to learning and development. I promote healthy eating throughout the day and was awarded an "outstanding" aspect from Ofsted for this.
I can drop off and collect from local pre-schools, Banstead Infant and Community School in the Horseshoe, and St. Anne's Catholic School in Banstead.
I currently provide 15 hours free childcare for 3 year olds, and I am registered also to provide free early education for two year olds (FEET) with Surrey County Council.
I am a Ofsted registered childminder with three years experience of childminding, I have a family of three which includes twins, so I have experience of caring for mutiples.
I have completed the CHiP Childminder course and have completed Paediatric First Aid certificate with St. John's Ambulance in March 2013. I have also refreshed my "Safeguarding" training in February 2013.
I have a qualification in "CACHE Level 3, Diploma for Children and Young People's Workforce" completed in 2011.
I regularly attend training. Some of the recent workshops I have attended are "Connecting Children to Nature", "Boys, Understanding and Improving Practice for Home Based Child carers", and The revised early Years Foundation Stage workshop.
I am currently in the progress of working towards my child minding Quality Assurance Accreditation with the local council.
I have two vacancies currently as follows:
1-5 age range: No vacancies currently, however I will have three vacancies in September 2016 for the early years.
I also am available for before and after school pick ups from Banstead Infants and Banstead Junior School and St. Annes Catholic School in Banstead. I can also drop and collect children to various pre-schools, please enquire.
My hours are 07.30 to 6.00pm but I can be flexible and can work to 6.30pm if needed or earlier in the morning.
