About Me

Hi there, My name is Lauren I am a Ofsted Childminder.I offer full time and after school care.
I live in High Barnet and I run my childcare service called Dinky Dinos Daycare from within my lovely home which is located off of Barnet high street. Please visit my web page 'dinky dinos daycare'

I offer a warm home setting and my play, learning and nursery set up is Montessori based. I run my childcare along with my Toddler son. I love education and take pride in teaching my son early education including a variety of sensory play, baby sign language and teaching phonetics.I have a range of educational toys and activities to teach basic pre school subjects and confidence and self care.
I have lovely outdoor play facilities around me including 3 lovely walking distance outdoor spaces of woods, a secure park and a park with swings and children's outdoor activities.
I also have a outdoor space within my home.I have my own car which is spacious and organised and holds 4 seats for the children with car seats from 0-12 years.

My Experience

I am Ofsted registered, so have been assessed by Ofsted and follow all their standards of care and offer The Early Years Foundation Framework to help your child with Learning and developing as a unique child. A full learning journal and observations will be taken monthly for their development. I hold a paediatric first aid certificate and my previous work background was a surgical veterinary nurse for over 9 years within a busy 24 hour veterinary hospital where I looked after over 20 patients on a daily basis after a variety of surgical and medical problems. I also offer a Food hygiene level qualification so studied regarding hygiene in food preparation, and delivering the children within my care the right balance of food and nutrients to develop and grow.

My Qualifications

I have completed a childminding course with Barnet & Southgate college studying the Early Years Foundation stages for learning and developing and safeguarding children within my care. I also hold an up to date Paediatric first aid training certificate and hold a certificate in Food hygiene dealing with preparation, handling and serving food within my setting. I also keep up to date with childcare certificates online and my special interest is Early years education using a variety of different treaching methods but focusing on Montessori method.

My Availability

I only have a maximum of 4 children or less at one time as I like to offer as much individual care as possible to each child whilst they are with me. I do offer school and nursery pickups depending on the schedule of the children who I have at the time. Please enquire to discuss. I offer an initial meet and greet within my home to discuss the requirements for your children so I can answer any questions you may have. You will meet myself and my family. I can offer flexible times for work hours and I am mother myself so understand the importance of a reliable safe carer.
