My name is Eimear.I am a registered and insured childminder with the added benefit of a Degree in Gaelic, Geography and the Classics, a Level 5 in Understanding Special Needs. I have completed CYPOP5 and a number of other training courses including first aid and food hygiene. I have three children Conor , Hugo and Bonnie. I live with my Fiance Ash, who has his own property maintenance and fencing business. Working with children is my passion, I have a home from home setting that aims to make children and parents feel part of the family.
Our home is warm and welcoming to children and parents, it is also safe and secure, with space organized and used to promote children’s development.
I live in a spacious four bedroom three story near the centre of Corbridge, with a spacious garden with a wooden playhouses, digging area with kitchen, sandpit, water trough, large veg patch and lots of other outdoor play. There is a large playroom in the centre of my home where children can play and learn, it is filled with natural and everyday objects as well as lovely wooden toys that appeal to children's curious nature's, all rooms run off here, we have an art room with period school desk, chalk boards, and a lovely large window seat where the children especially the older ones enjoy reading and board games.There is a large living room with a desk area for older children to do their homework and relax afterschool away from younger children if they wish however they all tend to mix and play together. We eat our meals together in the kitchen, tea is served at 4.30, children also help with laying the table and preparing simple meals and snacks as well as baking. We do lots of messy play and outdoor adventures so waterproofs and wellies are essential. The down stairs bathroom has all equipment needed to promote independence when toileting and handwashing. Our spare bedroom is available for nap time where I can provide a cot or zbeds.
Our home is a two minute walk from the park and playgrounds and five minutes walk from the local schools. I provide before and after school care as well as a holiday club for children who attend the local preschool, first school and middle school.
I work alongside two very experienced assistants who also bring drama and sports qualifications to my setting. Between us we have over 20 years experience in providing quality care and education for children.
I have a large amount of experience in delivering care to children of all ages as I was a supervisor and Montessori teacher in a busy crèche which catered for children from birth to 13 years.
I have also tutored children for their exams for many years and helped younger children who were struggling with specific subject areas.
I volunteered in a school as a TA, specialising in caring for those with learning difficulties.
I also have a three children of my own who have given me a wealth of experience in the trials and tribulations of being a child.
