About Me

My name is Yvonne and I am an OFSTED registered Childminder living in Ford. On my last inspection I was graded OUTSTANDING through all areas.

My setting is safe and secure. Time is spent both in the setting and out exploring the world and our surroundings.

I provide all aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage Requirements allowing all Children in my care to learn and develop at their own pace. I offer my own experiences to enhance development.

I have an Enhanced DBS Certificate and hold a full clean driving licence.

If timings allow I offer a pick up and drop off service at a pre arranged location.

I have been registered as a Childminder for over 20 years.

I offer ad hoc care during the school holidays spaces permitted.

My Experience

I have had the privilege over my Child Minding career to have looked after both boys and girls with ages ranging from 4 months to 11 years. I have also had the pleasure of looking after Children from different cultural backgrounds.

I enjoy looking after Children & aim to give them the benefit of my experience.

I regularly update my training by attending training sessions when available.

Our 2 daughters attended this setting after school for just over 2 years. We couldn't have been happier with the level of care provided, and nothing was ever too much trouble. If attending during the school holidays, they often arranged trips out for the children, such as to a local farm. Themed craft activities would also often be arranged throughout the year. Our girls were really happy there, highly recommended.

Yvonne and Alan provided after school care for our daughter for 17 months. They were always very caring and extremely reliable. They planned interesting activities which our daughter really enjoyed. Yvonne and Alan understood the needs of working parents very well and we were very pleased to find them. Thank you both!

Yvonne and Alan have cared for our boys for the last two years, before and after school. They are very friendly and quickly built positive relationships with both boys. Yvonne and Alan provide a caring, secure environment and work hard to meet each child's individual needs. They provide a wide range of activities including regular outdoor play and organised craft sessions, in which the children have made quality crafts such as coloured sand bottles, personalised key-rings and jewelled hearts. There are a wide range of toys for the children to play with, including our boys' favourites: construction (lego, marble runs, blocks etc) and small world (cars and trains). Yvonne and Alan are extremely flexible and have accommodated my requests for extra sessions when I have had to work extra hours. On school INSET days, they have taken my boys on interesting trips, for example to Portsmouth Historic Dockyards.

My 3 year old daughter loves her time here. Home Home have always been very professional, keeping a close eye on her developmental progress. They have taken my daughter on many fantastic day trips and have always been happy to accommodate flexible times when needed.

Highly recommended.
