I have cared for children aged 5 months to 11 years, My daily routines would consist of visiting parks, outings, childminding groups and fun at my home. I have a large enclosed garden with plenty of toys and equipment to cover each area of learning. I work inline with the EYFS and every child has there own learning journal to document their progress and record their activities. Working within the EYFS ensures all the children develop and grow in my care and have fun experiences with me and other children.

I work with other childminders in my area - going to groups, together training and network meetings to stay up to date with new legislation's and requirements.

Claire Burgess has been my childminder for 10 years, looking after both my children. She looked after one since she was a baby and then took her to pre-school, nursery and then school. She is kind, caring and lots of fun. She offers a home from home environment has and supported all of their school events and activities over the years. Claire is an amazing childminder and I recommend her highly.
