From a very young age I always knew that I wanted to work with children.Experience, Qualifications and Skills for Child-minding
As a busy mother of two , I am well aware of the demands and responsibilities involved in caring for children. I have no doubt that the experiences that I have had already with bringing up my own children help me in my role as a child-minder..
As part of my pre-registration training I successfully completed an induction course in child-minding ran by the local Early Years Team and approved by Ofsted / The Care Inspectorate. The course covered a wide range of subjects including child protection, health and safety, child development and behaviour management. During the course of this year I have refreshed my child protection training, and obtained my First Aid Certificate for babies and young children. I also make full use of the training workshops provided by the Early Years Team and by the local college as they become available c
? I have worked as a Deputy manager in day nursery and more recently I worked in a preschool my experiences here have given me some understanding of what is involved in providing a good quality care service.
I have the experience of being a mother of a little boy who has been cared for by Grandma, and going to preschool. I am therefore able to identify areas where that particular service has been successful and try to do the same, as well as learn from areas where I feel improvements could have been made.
I have a very creative background. I will utilise my artistic talents and ideas when doing art and craftwork with children.
I am a fit and active individual with plenty of energy to provide children with a stimulating environment with a wide variety of fun and educational activities.
I regularly attend playgroups where I have the opportunity to speak with other child-minders and listen to their experiences and advice.
covering a variety of areas from child development and special needs to play experiences and nutrition and hygiene. I believe it is vitally important to continue to further my training and refresh my skills in order for me to provide a good quality childcare service.
In addition to the above I believe that the following experience & skills will also assist me in providing a successful child minding service:
2003 Croydon College
