About Me

Hello, my name is Carol and I am an OFSTED and PACEY registered childminder and live in the Sale Moor area, within walking distance to Worthington Primary school. This is the only school/nursery that I offer before and after school childcare. I have three grown up children and one grand-daughter. Both daughters attended Worthington Primary School and the majority of teachers know me very well. I have a large playroom at the back of my house which includes a separate toilet and wash basin. I have age appropriate toys for indoor and outside play. My garden has a tarmac area for bikes and scooters and a large lawn area with a trampoline. There is also a covered pond with gold fish and most years we are lucky to have frogspawn which is a delight for children of all ages to observe first hand the life cycle. The back garden is securely locked by gates and is a safe environment for all ages.

My Experience

I have been childminding for 15 years and have looked after children ranging from 6 months to 11 years of age. I attend local toddler groups where children can play and socialize with others as well as joining in with singing time. I like to take children out during the day for walks/puddle jumping as well as looking at the environment to notice changes in the seasons. We attend lots of different parks and especially enjoy the local animal park. I believe it is important for children to have fun and be happy and feel safe in order to achieve and ensure the activities during the day are both child and adult led. I have an honest and open relationship with parents and feel it is important that parents know their child is not just safe but happy and learning during the day. I am a very safety - conscious person and my previous work background included assessing health and safety for young people in a working environment.
