Hi, my name is Debbie and I have been an Ofsted registered childminder for 19 years. My two daughters, both OFSTED registered, work alongside me;
Phoebe who has completed a degree in childcare. She has worked in a nursery and has many years experience of working in a local primary school working with all ages and experience of working 1-1 with children with SEN, she has also worked along side other agencies such as SALT.
Mistie who has her level 3 qualification and many years experience of working in childcare.
We all have up to date DBS checks and first aid training.
About the setting;
A warm and welcoming home from home environment. My setting offers a large play room full of age/stage appropriate toys/resources and plenty of opportunity for role play where children can confidently express themselves as an individual. We have a lovely garden with OFSTED approved wildlife ponds, mud kitchens, play house, bug hotels, sand pit and water play for the children to explore.
A typical week in our setting includes regular trips to different play, music and dance groups. We like to spend time exploring outside by going on nature walks, learning about our environment. We are have recently become involved in Love on the Rocks and like to find and hide rocks around different parks. We are fortunate enough to own our own horses which children enjoy visiting and playing in the woodland nursery down the stables. Sometimes we are lucky enough to spot the foxes and their cubs playing.
At our setting we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculumtherefore, your child's development will be observed then tracked and up loaded onto their online learning journal for you to keep track of. We also follow the EYFS and Ofsted requirements to safeguard the children at our setting by following our strong safeguarding policy. We regularly attend courses to keep up to date with current legislation.
We are a friendly family ran business and welcome all families into our home. We provide children with plenty of play opportunities and allow time for children to explore and discover at their own pace. We support child development by providing opportunities for your child to grow and progress in their development. Our activities are planned following your child’s interest and are differentiated to suit all ages. We feel it is important to build positive relationships with parents and children therefore, children and parents can feel confident with in our setting. Me and my daughters try to be as flexible as possible to suit parents needs.
