About Me

Hi, I'm clare, a mum of one to my son Fionn. Before having Fionn I was a paediatric healthcare support worker which involved caring for children with complex care needs within their own home. I also run a Brownie unit where I am responsible for 20 girls aged 7-10 years old. I love working with children, watching their personalities develop and teaching them, and seeing them learn, new things.

My Experience

During my time as a carer I looked after children aged between 1-17 who required the use of a ventilator to assist them with their breathing, children who were fed via a gastrostomy or jejunostomy tube, children who have tracheostomy tube as well as administering medications and changing dressings.
As a Brownie Guider I am responsible for girls aged 7-10, along with my team of helpers we have to ensure that girls have a varied programme, I have a license that allows me to take Brownies away on Pack Holidays and we do this annually.
I have been a childminder since September 2017 and have cared for children aged 11 months upwards. I am always looking to improve my skills and knowledge.
I run a, mainly, child led childminding service so we do things that the children are enjoying at the time but I organise special activities for special days such as Easter and Diwali. We attend lots of groups so the children get to socialise, meet different people and play with different toys. My after school children have lots of resources to choose their own activities but we also do organised activities such as cooking and growing plants. I drop off and collect from Stanway Primary.
