About Me

?SPACES AVAILABLE ?Hello my name is Karean Carr I am a CIW Registered / Flying start Childminder living in the Barry area. I live with my husband Who is in the Royal and our 3 children
We also have 2 small child friendly dogs who are kept apart from the children during childminding hours, as they have their own parts of the house where they stay. I have spaces available for immediate start. I look after children in a loving, safe, fun environment where they can play, learn and do lots of different activities in safe and structured surroundings. All activities are all aimed at developing the 7 areas of learning in line with the foundation phase.

I was inspected Jan 2020 and was awarded Excellent in all areas In May 2019 I started The Curiosity Approach Accreditation. I have moved away from traditional plastic toys and I use recycled resources as much as possible for children to use their imaginations . My setting is very much child led. Children of all ages have access to a range of authentic resources and loose parts in the Play room and a secure private back garden where there is lots of activities to do I have a bug hotel , water and sand play and a mud patch to go with the mud kitchen .I attend local play groups and musical dancing groups. I also love taking the children out and about ( in all weathers) on fun days out to visit local parks, forests and other local attractions.

My Experience

Karean is a great childminder, she takes them out to places all the time and keeps the children interested in everything they do. I unfortunatly only had the pleasure of sending my 2 year old daughter to her for a few months due to us moving to a different town but if anything could of been done i would have stayed with Karean because my daughter absolutely loves going to her everyday.
I would totally recommend Karean to everyone.
