I have the following upcoming spaces;
- BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE FROM SEPTEMBER 2020 FOR 5yrs+; Hanwell Fields Community School.
- FULL TIME SPACE FOR UNDER 5 FROM SEPTEMBER 2021
I am a friendly and caring childminder, based in Hanwell Fields, offering a welcoming environment for all children.
I am child orientated, and will encourage and support learning and development through children's interests, through child led play.
I also offer a range of adult led activities such as arts and crafts, music, dance and stories.
Myself and the current children in my care like to be out and about. For example we go to toddler groups, museums, the park, soft play and for walks etc
I have been looking after children from a young age.
I have experience with helping at an after school club at a primary school, which I did for three years. I then went on to working at a gymnastics club where I taught young children gymnastics. I did this for three years.
I have babysat for a range of families and ages over the last nine years. These have been from a baby through to eleven years old.
I then went on to do work experience at a nursery, which I loved so decided to apply for an apprenticeship there in childcare. I developed my skills with working with young babies to pre-school age. I completed my Level 2 and my Level 3 in Childcare at nurseries and gained a secure understanding of the EYFS. I stayed in a nursery full time for three years. I also have experience with looking after Autistic children.
I have regularly looked after my friends little boy who is one and a half.
I have undertaken further training, which I regularly ensure that I am up to date with, and always seek to broaden my knowledge further where I can.
I have been registered as a childminder since Mid-September 2019.
I am a Level 3 qualified Early Years Educator and also have a Level 2 qualification in Children and Young People. I have first aid and safeguarding certification. Additional certifications include children's mental health; food safety and hygiene; food allergy awareness; equality and diversity; prevent duty; speech and language; and others.
Below is my current availability. If you have any questions regarding this before hand, then feel free to send me a message. Thank you

Amanda was super sweet and did so well with our toddler. We had a date night and left her in charge of afternoon play, dinner and bed time routine which can be a tricky with the best of toddlers. She did a great job! She played with her outside and inside and got her to bed no trouble. Would use her again in a heartbeat if we didn’t move North.

Thank you for your kind review. I enjoyed my time with her. Good luck with the rest of your adventures up North!
We have both of our children with amanda and we couldnt be happier with the role she plays in their lives.
We are sent daily pictures and videos of the kids painting, playing in the park and on museum visits etc.
Being away from your kids is hard, for me the most important thing is they are happy, comfortable and safe. when I drop them off in the morning they are so excited to go and play it gives me a great confidence to know they are being well looked after.
We are sent regular updates on their progression and learning development and you can tell she is someone that really loves her job which tranalates to how the kids are being cared for.
