My Experience

I have been a registered childminder for 22 years , my last ofsted went well as i recieved a Good . I have looked after many children and babies as young as 11 days old . We offer flexible hours and promote working closely with parents so your child's care is seamless from your home to ours. our setting is very homely and we want our children to feel comfortable and welcomed and feel its a home from home environment. We always have a very full day from phonics, numbers, colours and shapes to planned activities including arts and crafts , cooking, role play to exciting picnics and lots of outdoor fun and games. Story time with puppets is always the favourite of the day. Our future plan is to create an educational garden , with a sensory path and raised flower beds for herbs and lavender and to grow vegetables . we have a bug hotel and bird table area with a bench to promote a quiet thinking area . we will be putting in a road area for sit and rides with traffic lights and zebra crossing . with a balance area . we already have a play house and swings seesaw climbing frame and slide with basket ball hoops and footie nets. We are very fortunate to be able to work with such wonderful families and I pride myself on the relationships that we have with all our families past and present.
