About Me

**Opening May 2020**

My name is Selina and I live in North Finchley. I have been a qualified Early Years Practitioner for 8 years and have 20 years of childcare experience. I am very passionate about my chosen career path and I enjoy putting my learning into practice to provide the best possible care to children in my home.

My home offers three large rooms solely used for childcare incorporating all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) and a lovely outdoor area allowing all children to learn in a creative, fun and engaging way. I pride myself on providing a warm and loving home from home childcare environment whilst ensuring all my routines are planned which allows children take part in a variety of learning experiences each day. I use Tapestry, which is a tracking system to help celebrate your child's achievements and keep you informed about their milestones.

As well as the EYFS my pedagogy (the method and practice of teaching) focuses on children's well-being. I encourage children to learn about positive values, character strengths, kindness and mindfulness. This encourages children's confidence and helps them grow into healthy, happy and resilient little learners.

I provide care for children aged 3 months on-wards.

My Experience

I have 20 years experience working with children. I am knowledgeable with the EYFS and I uphold the ethos that children thrive through enabling environments, positive relationships and challenging and playful learning opportunities. I enjoy the outdoors and I am currently training as a Forest School Leader Level 3 where I will practice forest school once a week in my setting. Forest School helps children to grow in confidence as a result of the freedom, time and space they are given in their learning.
