About Me

Hi my name is Clare
I have been working as a Registerd Childminder since July 2007 and working with children since 1988 aged 18 when I qualified as a Nursery nurse I am N.N.E.B trained and have worked as a Nanny and as a Deputy Manager in a local nursery before being approached by 2 parent's whose children attended the Nursery to see if I would look afyer their children from my home both parent's were friends and taught at Ingelby Mill school

Since then that is what I chose to do
I take great pride in my job and love being around the many different little people and nor so little people in my care

I know and totally understand how hard it is to leave your most precious bundle with a person that you barely know I am a Mum to 1 son who is 16 now and I totally appreciate how hard it is

I hope that in meeting me then seeing my home and after a few visits and a welcoming chat I can put you at ease so that you can return to work happy and confident

I have a welcome pack that I can drop off to you for you to have a look at with all my qualifications references etc so that you have a bit of information before we meet

I enjoy the outdoors I am a member of the national trust my son and I love spending time outdoors on a weekend at fountains abbey and various other local places of beauty and I also enjoy going out and about with the children in my care to local farms parks and beaches

I recently had my OFSTED inspection and I was delighted to be given OUTSTANDING.....

Just had my second ofsted inspection and I am delighted to have received outstanding again as I was informed the bar has been raised and it is even harder to get this now so I am thrilled

Just had my inspection 2019 and again totally over the moon to be graded OUTSTANDING with no recomendations I am very happy with that I put a lot of time into my business always looking at how to improve and to encourage my children to learn explore and gain in confidence and independance to see them do this makes me very proud
Ofsted where very impressed with how the children learn in my care through play and exploring following their own interest's and loved to see the bond that I have with them

My ofsted report is available for you to look at as is a copy of my welcome pack if you would like to contact me I can arrange to send one out

I also have references from all of my families since I started to present day for you to read through and lovely thank you cards

This is all I can think of to say .....

My Experience

I have been a Registered Childminder since September 2007

I am a qualified Nursery Nurse

Previously to this I worked in a local Day Nursery as the Assistant Manager but before this role I worked as a Nursey Nurse and worked my way up wihtin three years to the Deputy Position

I have also worked as a Nanny in London, Glasgow and here in the North East

I have worked with children since I qualified as a Nursery Nurse at the age of 18 I enjoy all ages of children they all have special qualities and I care very much for each child in my care I will be losing a little girl in September as she starts nursery and her mam will be finishing at college so no longer needs childcare mum and I both no that her last day will be very hard as I have cared for her since being 7 months old she had a special place in our family and home x

I still care for the children who first came to me from Nursery now due to go into their final year 6

I pick up mainly from Ingleby Mill but have previously collected and dropped off at Saint Therese

My Qualifications

I am a qualified Nursery Nurse N.N.E.B. trained

I worked previously as a Assistant Nursery Manager

I have done numerous training courses through sure start and a folder full of all my certificates
Recent training on Prevent British Values Child protection to name but a few

I am first aid trained just redone my 1st aid last month

I have an up to date food hygiene certificate

I was given 5 stars on the door grade by Stockton Borough Council for hygiene within my kitchen

I am due to start a lot more courses this year including empathy dolls senco ict food hygiene refresher

This job to me is a career choice it's not something that I think can be done just so I can be a stay at home mum for my own son I put a lot of time and effort into my job which I love doing xx
I no longer need to be a stay at home Mum as my child is 16 now but I love my job
My son has also had a CRB so is cleared to be here while I work as does my Husband as he work involves being around children so we all have CRB clearance
I look forward to speaking to you in more detail and to arrange a time to get together and to answer any questions

Thank you for reading my profile ?

My Fees

  • Babysitting from £10.00 per hour
  • Childminding from £35.00 per hour

Full day 38.00

Half day35

Before school £7.00

After school £12.00
Babysitting 10 pound per hour

I no longer provide a cooked lunch as after consulting with my current famillies I find its easier if parents provide a healthy packed lunch this means that we can go out and about and experience more outdoor activities and if we are at home I am spending more time interacting with your child rather than leaving them playing alone while I prepare and cook a meal

I am happy to cook meals that you provide such as pre packed toddler meals pasta etc

Holiday club packed lunch to be provided £30.00

At the moment some of my families are term time only and my monthly fees are worked out evenly over the year so the monthly bill will always stay the same this makes it easier to budget and to arrange childcare voucher's tax free childcare

Thank you for taklng the time to look at my profile I hope that I have shown you a little bit about myself I look to hearing from you soon to arrange a time to pop round for a chat and a look around
