About Me

Hi im Elaine and have been a childminder in Springfield
for 12 years .
I received an "Outstanding", Ofsted report on my last inspection in March 2020.
We do daily activities and crafts,
and are out and about as much as possible .
The babies/toddlers/children have a
varied and social daily schedule,
incorporating lots of fun and cuddles!
For more in depth information please contact .

My Experience

I previously trained as a nursery nurse.
Since becoming an Ofsted registered childminder I continue to update my knowledge of the EYFS by attending courses and online development in childcare .

My Qualifications

CACHE Level 2 NVQ in Childrens Care,Learning and Development.
First Aid for Child Care Practitioners.
Safeguaring,and other ongoing training.

My Availability

Hi , I will now have 1 baby space available as from September 2024 .
I offer a minimum of 7.5 hours per day & minimum of 2 days per week as I find this helps with a child’s routine to settle in much better .
I am not taking on any before or after schoolies unfortunately at the moment .

My youngest has been cared for my Elaine since he was a few months old and the level of care and attention to detail is outstanding. He has lovely days out to visit various places and is always very happy when I come to pick up
