I achieved an OUTSTANDING outcome from my latest Ofsted inspection (Aug 2015) and network regularly with other childminders in the area. I wish to continue to develop my own skills and knowledge so that I can deliver a quality practice to children and their families. I am an Affiliate member of Pacey
