About Me

My name is Debbie i am married to Neal with three grown up children one of whom is still living at home. It is a non smoking house, and we have a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Cats.
I have been an OFSTED registered childminder for 22 years with a grading of good.

I run a home from home environment where the childrens input is encouraged and valued in order to create a learning environment where they feel comfortable and valued.
The garden is a nice size, it has a grassed area with Wendy house, slide and climbing frame. There is a decked area that is shaded at all times of the day where children can ride trikes, scooters and play ball games as well as lots of toys and things for the children to do and learn. I have always believed that family life is important for a childs development, which is what I offer in my own home.
We have regular outings to local parks, library, local woodland and swimming pool (provided adult child ratios are met).

I work alongside another childminder who has just completed an NVQ level 3 diploma in Children and Young Persons Workforce, she is DBS checked, and holds a pedeactric first aid certificate.

I use the EYFS guidance and the childrens interests to plan for activities that will enhance the childrens developmental progress.

I regularly attend training in order to keep myself up to date with new guide lines and strategies to enhance children's learning

I currently have a limited number of vacancies as previous children are moving up to school. I take on children from any age and have some experience with Additional needs.

I offer the 15 hours free early years education for eligible 2 year olds, 15 hours universal funding for 3 and 4 years olds and the 30 hours early years education funding for eligible 3and 4 year olds.

References from parents can be arranged.
