About Me

Hi my name is Lorraine, I have been a registered childminder for 17 years. I live with my husband in Central Middleton, Greater Manchester.

I live in a large terrace house with a dedicated playroom and a fully enclosed yard for outdoor play. Within my childminding setting I provide a safe, caring and educational environment. I have a wide selection of equipment including toys, games and books. I also feel children learn a lot from the natural environment and benefit from social interaction with other children and adults, therefore I also take the children to the local parks, woods, library, soft play areas and toddler groups.

I am a Forest Childcare Provider and I believe that spending time outdoors is very important. The children go outdoors every day because I believe that fresh air and wide open spaces are good for them! I take the children to the local parks and woods at least once a week.

I have choosen my profession and career as I gain a great deal of job satisfaction working and caring for children. I believe that caring for children is a partnership between parents and myself.

My Experience

I have worked with a wide range of children some who have had special needs, which has gained me a considerable amount of experience. I have also worked in a local primary school in the nursery and reception class for 1 day a week whilst I was completing my classroom assistant course.

My Qualifications

I have a NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education, Classroom Assistant Levels 1 and 2 and an up to date Paediatric First Aid Certificate.

I hold a Health and Food Hygiene Level 2 certificate as recommended by the Food Standards Agency and completed Nutrition Skills Training Level 1.

I also hold a Fire Marsall Certificate and undertaken Child Protection Training.

I have undertaken Forest Childcare Training.

I am fully trained on the Early Years Foundation Stage and update my knowledge by attending regular training sessions.

I am an accredited childminder therefore qualified to deliver the 15/30 hours free entitlement for two and three/ four year olds and I have achieved high 5 stage 5 the highest level in Rochdale's quality assurance award.

My last Ofsted inspection was July 2019 my over all grade was good and outstanding regarding the personal development, behaviour and welfare.
