About Me

Hi, I am Rachel, and I am a professional childminder. I was graded outstanding at my inspection in May 2016. I have now been awarded outstanding twice. I have suitable Public Liability insurance cover and have first aid and advanced safeguarding training. I have my level 3 diploma in childcare. I take government childcare vouchers (FEL) for 2, 3 and 4 year olds (15 hours to 30 hours).

I have also recently taken a COVID-19 risk assessment course and have made sure my setting now complies with the new government guidelines. Myself and all my family members are fully COVID vaccinated .

I live in Meadowhead, near Woodseats with my husband and two sons who attend school and college. We also have a small very friendly loveable Boston Terrier dog. He loves all the children and they just adore him. I take and collect school age children from St Thomas of Canterbury School at Chancet Wood, Meadowhead. I also collect school age children from Abbey Lane School on Mondays. I work term time only.

For early years children in my setting, I love taking them to Play Parks and Woods. We also visit local animal farms. I did run a local church play group where the children learn to socialise and play with different resources. I hope to resume this when social restrictions are normalised. At my setting children play and explore, engage in active learning, are being creative and thinking critically. I aim to give children the best start in life and get them school ready.

l have lots of different resources for both indoor and outdoor at my home. We build dens together, go on bug hunts, play with sand, water and make use of my mud kitchen.

My Experience

I have raised two children of my own and have been a registered childminder since 2006. I have been graded Outstanding on my last two inspections.

My Qualifications

Level 3 diploma in Childcare.
Outstanding at last inspection.

My Availability

I look after children from age 0 to 14 years. Please note I take and collect school aged children from St Thomas of Canterbury school at Chancet Wood Tuesdays to Thursdays. On Mondays I am able to collect school aged children from Abbey Lane School. My availability changes from year to year, but at the moment I have availability.
Please note I do not work Fridays or Monday day time. Thank you

I work TERM TIME only, so teachers who only require term time childcare would be perfect for my setting.

Please contact me for a visit to my home setting. Thank you.
