Hi my name is Elaine, i'm an Ofsted registered Childminder and a member of Pacey. ACCREDITED, (Jan 2012) so I can now offer sessions for 2, 3 & 4 year olds, funded by the government.
Last Ofsted inspection graded "GOOD", November 2011 and granted/given permission for Over Night Care.
Diploma in Home Based Childcare (All 5 units - Level 3)
I live in Maybush with my fifteen year old daughter.
We have two horses.
As a childminder I like to offer a home away from home for all the children in my care. I believe that a parent who chooses a childminder is looking for a warm home environment where their child is encoraged to grow and learn as an individual.
Children develop if they feel happy and secure, I do my best to make them all feel at home and as relaxed as possible.
I enjoy working with children and accepting them into our home, I aim to make them feel part of the family.
Activites: I have a wide range of toys and equipment to suit all needs and stages of development. All outdoor play is closely supervised.
We go out to mums and toddler groups, soft play, childminder drop in groups and go on days out. So we are not just home all day.
Come and join us.
Bye for now........

My children came across to Elaine after a bad experience with a previous childminder, she made them feel very welcome, at ease.
She is very flexible, with my ever changing needs, being a working mum, and that is greatly appreciated.
