About Me

My name is Adele and I live with my partner and our crazy Labrador Max in Yarm. Max loves all the attention he gets from the kids.

Our home is smoke free

The children have access to a dedicated playroom at the front of the house, some fo the activities they enjoy in this room include pretend play with the play kitchen and babies, song and story time, as well as lots of free play and exploring. All the children are encouraged to be as independent as possible and are able to access most of the toys from low shelves without help. All the boxes are labelled and all children are encouraged to help tidy away the toys to the correct place once they have finished playing with them.

Children also have access to the back room where we have a tuff tray set up on a daily basis, the tray gets set out with lots of fun activities including arts and crafts, baking, playdough, sensory play and messy play. We also use the tray for meal and snack times.

From the back room the children have free flow access to the garden where they enjoy garden games, sand and water play as well as exploring with the loose parts and helping with the gardening.

Older children also have access to thr Xbox, play station 4 or wii

I enjoy getting out and about in the community as much as possible , we enjoy trips to the soft play area, the local library, sessions at the local children’s centre and playgroups as well as visits to Preston park, local farms and beaches

I offer a home from home environment where the children in my care can learn through play,I feel provide a friendly and flexible service, the children I care for are like an extended part of the family

I offer wrap around care as well as before and Afterschool care from Layfield primary school

My Experience

I have had over 15 years working with children of all ages and abilities. I have worked in nursery settings, playgroups and volunteered as a play worker working with children with special needs. I have also been a deputy manager of a before and Afterschool setting. I first became a childminder in 2010 and loved every second of it, unfortunately I couldn’t carry on minding as we moved house and our new house needed a lot of work before it was ready for minding again
I re registered as a childminder in February 2018 and have never looked back.
I provide lots of activities, outings and crafts for the children in my care to explore, they are free to learn though play
