About Me

I am an Ofsted registered Child Minder. I have a part time vacancy for full day thursday, more availability from September 2024. I live in Willington with my husband and my 2 children. I have 10 years experience working with children as a Nursery Practioner.My home is spacious, warm and welcoming with a good size enclosed garden.

My Experience

I have 10 years working experience as a Nursery Practitioner in a private day nursery working from bith to 4 year olds in the durham area and now moved into child minding. I have experience of planning, assessments and childrens learning and development. I have newborn experience through to 12 years of age. I have experience of working with children that have speech and language delay as well as developmental delays. My aim is to offer a loving, warm environment where you child can play as they learn. Free play will always be on offer, as will activities that promote and develop all areas of learning and development. Assessments and observations will be carried out that are guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage as requested by D of E for childminders. Your child will learn from the indoor, outdoors and the local environment. I am a caring individual and understands that each child is an individual, they all learn at different levels and pace. Extra support will be given with transitions to childminder for those children that need extra support and comforting as they have not been looked after by anyone other than family members.

My Qualifications

NVQ level 3 in Children's Care, learning and development.
Pedriatric 12 hr first aid training

I attend as many courses as i can provided by the local authority, to keep my own knowledge and development up to date, changes to EYFS, DCC and Ofsted guideline changes, and to support children with new methods of learning.
