Hi, My name is Nicola Boazman and I have been an Ofsted Registered childminder for over 5 years, living in the St Judes area of Plymouth . I live within short walking distance of Salisbury Rd School and various pre schools as well as local parks, shops and the library.
I live with my husband and my 2 children Indie (6) and Preston (10) and our dog Molly the collie (8).
I enjoy watching children learn through play and build their personalities through social activities and one on one interaction, creating a great mix of free play and structured activities such as arts and crafts, cooking, reading, singing, games and messy play! I plan my days around the EYFS and Development Matters guidelines. However, I will respond to the needs of the child and what they may want to do that day.
I have travelled much of the world and enjoy bringing my experiences and knowledge into my daily activities, e.g. Thai New Year (songkran), digging for fossils and learning new languages and foods and colours.
I have a happy, relaxed home where children will feel welcome and safe.
I have a lovely enclosed garden area with a range of outdoor toys.
I work closely with a group of Outstanding registered Childminders.. we attend play meetings together and where possible cover any sickness or holiday care.
I enjoy outings to the park, library and to feed the ducks as well as attending age related playgroups and picnics.
I am fully insured and Ofsted regulated. Graded Outstanding in all areas .
I became a childminder in February 2014. I have used good and bad childcare myself and realised that my passion for the care and wellbeing of children was far more of a passion for me than the marketing career i had been pursuing since i left university in 2002.
I have completed a course in health and nutrition in early years development and i am dedicated to helping children make connections between the world we live in and the effects of our behaviour on the world and ourselves. This includes making our own food every day.
I have also cared for children who have English as a second language and i am currently completing a TEFL course.
I moved from Tewkesbury. Gloucestershire in 2016 to Plymouth and i have been fully booked since I arrived.
I have always wanted to travel and work with children. Having travelled in the past, I am now lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with children.
I have 2 children of my own and we are constantly learning together about the world and the fun things we can do!
I have a large group of friends with children and I am always looking for excuses to babysit and create fun!
I have completed my Cache Course on Childmindiing as well as my paediatric first aid training (refreshed every 3 years)
I have attended safeguarding training and I am registered with the environmental health department for food hygiene.
I have personal experience dealing with allergies such as Wheat and Dairy and in seizures and asthma.
I have successfully passed my Ofsted inspection and all CRB and health checks.
I have been graded OUTSTANDING by Ofsted.
