Hello, I am an ofsted registered childminder and am insured and fully trained to care for children from age 0 - 17. I'd like to think of my home as a home from home for all the children who enter it, it's warm, welcoming and a safe and secure place to grow, learn, build happy memories and be nurtured. We are a very outdoorsy family and like to try new and adventurous things all the time. I like to bake, cook and go for walks with all the children along with lots of other fun activites. I have a huge range of creative and educational activities, toys and games for the children to have fun with. I have an open plan bungalow so am able to keep a watchful eye on the children playing and continue interacting with them while I prepare snacks and meals in the kitchen, this also benefits the children as they're able to have plenty of space to play without the worry of hazardous staircases. We often take trips up to the zoo, the farm, soft play, playgroups, parks for picnics and play, the forests and much much more.
I have a passion for families and I have loved raising my own children. I have worked for many years with children from all backgrounds both ethnic and disabilities and continue to do so. I have worked in schools, nurseries and hospitals. I have a nursing and a social care background and a child psychology certificate which I find very useful for helping me to understand each child as an individual, which in turn helps to get the best out of them. In my previous job I had the opportunity to run a house of autistic young adults with behaviours that challenge and needed to be able to act fast, think on my toes. remain calm and consistent and make quick decisions under pressure, I feel this has taught me the value of good routines but also flexibility to try new and different methods when one is not working aswell as patience and understanding.
child psychology qualification, health and social studies, nursing degree, food safety and hygiene certificate and paediatric first aid.
I have 1 space for an under 1 year old, 1 space for a 1-5 year old and 2 spaces for a 5 - 8 year old and 2 spaces for over 8 years old. I pick up and drop off at warden hill infant, junior and surrounding nurseries.
