I live in Bradley Stoke with my husband and twin daughters, aged 23 yrs. We also have a pet dog Toby, who is a 6 year old Labrador.
Toby has had puppy training and obedience training to ensure he is well behaved, he is regularly walked by a local dog walker during working hours.Toby is a family pet and is not allowed in the play room with the children during working hours, the children will see him if they use the downstairs bathroom, however he can be shut out in the dining room if needed. Toby is very lazy and doesnt even get up when children go in and out but you will hear him bark if the door is knocked ? All pick ups and drop offs are into garden and conservatory so you will not see him. Toby does not like the garden, which is a bonus as we use it most days. I say this incase parents have a fear of dogs to hopefully reassure them that Toby is safe and also he is well cared for whilst I care for the children. I have had parents petrified of dogs, who dont want their children to be and over their time with me Toby has helped them with this. So please ask more about Toby or dogs in general if you have any issues.
I have been working as a childminder for the last 12 years, previously my career was catering and so I can assure parents that their children will have well balanced, nutritional snacks and meals (which are provided in hourly rate).
All children are cared for in a safe, clean and happy home, providing a calm and friendly environment to which they can then go on to learn through play. I aim to provide them with activities and opportunities to have fun and help them reach their full potential.
Children will be encouraged to take part in lots of age related activities including painting, gluing, messy play and lots of other craft activities, as well as outdoor play, constructive play, cooking etc.I am also a member of Wild Place and Slimbridge plus we like to visit city farms, parks and toddler groups, as well as local libraries and soft play areas.
I have achieved level 3 in childcare leadership, hold a Pediatric First Aid Certificate and also have lots of training and experience with the Early Years Foundation Stage. I will seek out and attend training if I feel I need to gain more knowledge on a certain subject as I wish to offer the best service I can to ensure each child I have reaches there full potential. My recent traing has been around SEND.
I am registered with Ofsted and have achieved Good in my inspections.I have my own car, with clean license and business insurance.
