About Me

Hi my name is Clare I live in Shildon with my daughter who is 5 years old. I have recently become an OFSTED childminder and I'm very excited to get started on my new venture! I have my Diploma in Childcare and Education. I am 43 years old and have over 20 years childcare experience working in a variety of sertings such as schools, private care, social services, SEN and holiday playschemes. I have my paediatric first aid and up to date safeguarding training. I also have training in Makaton as well as basic sign language. I am very caring trustworthy and hard working person and love working with children. Building a trusting caring relationship with each child as well as the parents is paramount. I love the outdoors and believe children benefit so much from being outdoors and exploring! I am a member of the forest school association which means I will be outdoors with your child every day at some point using the outdoors as a valuable learning experience. I believe children need regular time outdoors for fresh air, to explore and experience the world around them and have fun! I'm a big believer in fostering children's interests and extending their learning and development through what they love and enjoy. I also pride myself on providing homemade fresh food at mealtimes for the children (included in my fee) and encourage the children to get involved with baking and cooking where age appropriate. I work from Monday to Friday from 7.30 till 5.30 however this is flexible and I am open to looking at occasional weekend work if needed. If there is anything else you would like to know please don't hesitate to contact me I look forward to hearing from you soon :)
