I have been married for 19 years and I am a mother to Daniel who is 31 years old and Ruby who is 12 years old.
I live in Higher Blackley close to Heaton Park.
I have a large conservatory on the back of my house which I have made into a play room for the children, this is filled with a wide variety of toys and resources which cover each area of learning to help the children learn and develop through purposeful play. I also have an enclosed garden which leads of my conservatory for the children to enjoy the outside environment and lots of outdoor toys ie: sand pit, water table, playhouse, cars, climbing frame and swing etc. I attend the sure start centres on a weekly basis to let the children enjoy and join in with various activities and also to get them used to playing alongside other children in order to prepare them for nursery, I also pay lots of visits to the park, library, Wacky Warehouse etc. I do detailed learning jouneys for all the early years children in my setting in order to track their progress and to support their next steps in all areas in order for them to progress in both the prime and specific areas of learning and development.
I am registered with Ofsted and had my second inspection in July'2015 and was graded as OUTSTANDING.
I have completed the childminding pre registration course which included training in safeguarding children, food hygiene, child development and I am first aid qualified. I have recently completed further training to support my practice this includes a speech & language course, child development & observations course and SENCO, HENRY training and much more, and do so on regular intervals to improve my knowledge in my childminding career. I also attend the network childminding meetings in order to keep up to date with any changes to the requirements or legislations in the EYFS or with Ofsted. I also accept the free government funding for 15 hours per week for children aged 3 & 4 and also for qualifying 2 year olds and I accept the 30 hours funding. I am also a member of PACEY.
