About Me

My name is Rebecca and I live in Preston, Paignton. I am a qualified primary school teacher and nursery nurse. After the birth of my second child I decided to leave teaching and become an Ofsted registered childminder. I opened Preston Childminding in September 2018.

I am conveniently located in lower Preston, just off the main Torquay Road and a 5 minute walk from the seafront. I feel my home is a warm, friendly and welcoming setting. I have two young children myself and my setting is very much a home, rather than a nursery. I am a small setting and hope this allows children's individual needs to be met within a small group. I follow the EYFS statutory framework, the same as nurseries and pre-schools. I support all areas of the children's development through a range of play based activities at home. I share photos and observations of the children's learning development with parents regularly. To ensure a variety of experiences I also take the children out most days. We go for walks to places such as, the beach, Oldway and Decoy. We also visit places such as the library, parks, toddler groups and the zoo.

My Experience

I worked as a primary school teacher for 16 years, specialising in early years. I taught nursery, reception, year 1 & year 2. I also worked as the special educational needs coordinator (SENCo) for 6 years.

I am also a qualified nursery nurse. Prior to becoming a teacher I have worked in nurseries with children 0-5 years, been a nanny and worked in playschemes for children with special needs.

Most importantly I am a mum to a beautiful 8 year old and a gorgeous 4 year old.

My Qualifications

• 4yr degree - BA (Hons) Early Years Education with Qualified Teaching Status
• 2yr training - BTEC National Diploma in Nursery Nursing

I have kept up to date with my CPD and have attended numerous courses related to early years education and to special educational needs.
I have completed the Access to Childminding in Torbay course. This included training in
• Early Years Foundation Stage - learning & development and welfare
• Working with agencies
• Partnership with parents
• Inclusion
• Health & Safety
• Food Hygiene
• Child Protection
• Running a business

I have completed a 12 hour Paediatric First Aid course.
Recently I have completed training in Makaton signing.

Thank you,
Rebecca Woodger - Preston Childminding
