Hello I’m Angie, welcome to Little Chicks Childcare and thank you for taking the time to read my profile :)
We are a family run business that work very hard to create a loving, home from home environment for your child to learn, play and develop. Going to a childminder is the perfect option for any parent wanting a more personal experience for their child whilst still receiving the same level of education and learning opportunities as they would at a nursery. We also provide wrap around, school runs, ad-hoc and term time or holiday only care.
I became Ofsted registered in July 2019 and began studying for my Level 5 in childcare, before this I worked as a key person in a nursery for 4 years.
Care will take place downstairs in our home with a large lounge, downstairs toilet and craft table in the kitchen. We have a fenced in garden with a designated area for the children with toys and a craft table which is paved so they can have access all year round but they of course can enjoy the rest of the grassed garden which has a nest swing, playhouse and trampoline. We have 2 guinea pigs Chandler and Ross (massive Friends fans) and a small fish tank for the children to enjoy. We recently added a new addition to the family Elsa, she is a Pomeranian x Poodle meaning she is a little fluff ball although doesn’t malt.
Our local park is a two minute walk from our house which we regularly visit and has been risk assessed. We also take regular trips to waterlooville horizon, Staunton country park and Petersfield heath to feed the ducks.
The children will receive observations sent directly to you through the Kinderly app as well as wow moments, daily diaries and registration. I will track their progress and plan next steps for them all of which will be discussed at termly parents evenings and at age 2 I will complete there 2 year progress check which can be passed on to their health visitor. For any children coming up to school age I am happy to work along side your chosen school to make the transition as easy as possible for your little one.
I have 4 years experience working as a key person in the baby unit at a private nursery as well as covering staff absences in the pre school. Previous to that I worked as a carer for children with additional needs and disabilities, I returned to this care company in a waking night role for a short time whilst I established my business. Both roles have gained me a total of 8 years experience working with children from age 0-18.
