I am enthusiastic, reliable person, who is highly motivated and an extremely keen practitioner with flexible enabling skills and achievements to provide care to a wide range of children. As a well-established experienced child care professional, I have operated with credibility and business expertise, working as an Ofsted registered full time child minder since 2006.
I aim to provide care in a safe and secure home meeting requirements of Ofsted ensuring the children are safeguarded. I have recently moved tfrom Pamber Heath to Tadley and setting up house to accommodate needs for business. Initially I will be using the ground floor of the property to provide care for children which has a large open plan kitchen come snug area where I will provide care for children, provisions for sleeping areas will be made in the current Lounge or downstairs bedroom. The house has downstairs toileting facilities along with a large hall area for play too. Stair gates will be in place on stairs and utility area to keep the family dogs in their own safe space away from the children most of the time. I have plans to install a purpose built log cabin in the garden to use for childminding and hope this will be in place in the autumn 2021. The children are in a non-smoking homely environment within a family setting.
The children have access to a fully enclosed friendly secure rear garden with a patio which will house a playhouse, sandpit, and outdoor toys to play when supervised.
In the family home we have two small dogs, Poppy and Willow , who are child friendly and are generally kept in their own space away from the children due to the ages of the children and being the same height as children. The house is located on a side road in Tadley with road parking for parents collecting and delivering children. The location of the property gives easy access links to Basingstoke, Reading and Newbury.
I have been Childminding fully since 2006, have cared for over 40 different children in that period. Some emergency care cover to long term care for 3 families for more than 6 years per family. Have care for several twin families from age one year upwards with another child of the same age (effectively triplets) along with other before and after school care. I have provided overnight care for one family for over 8 years on occasions due to parents work commitments. Following covid 19 I regrettably had to loose all children from school settings and reduced to 3 preschoolers, however due to reduced services and families providing own care I suspended my business to allow for the change of property and to set up at new house. I will now deal with under fives during term time and potentially do some holiday care for for schoolers as well if required and review school runs in Autumn 2022
Both my partner and eldest daughter are registered as assistants to help on occasions or emergency care. My partner being a teacher and scout leader. My daughter being a care worker/student and guiding leader too.
My youngest daughter who is in her last year at school loves helping with the children to and is looking at care work for her college course and also is a young Leader helping with rainbows locally. An all round child friendly team support me when they are around in the house and the children love engaging with play and conversation with them all.
