About Me

My name is Rebecca, I am a proud Mum of 3 amazing children and an Ofsted registered childminder.

I recently had to make a decision between furthering my educational career by going into teaching full-time or registering as a childminder, I decided that childminding would allow me to give children the time and attention that they require, to be provided with a more personalised learning experience.

After gaining a level 3 in childcare, a first class degree in education studies (BA Hons) and having 6 years of experience of working in a variety of educational settings, I believe that I have gained the relevant experience, knowledge and understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, required to provide children with effective, differentiated activities to support their learning and development.

As a parent of 3 children, I am more than aware of the dilemmas that parents/carers have to face when deciding which will be the best childcare for their children, I aim to ease your worries as much as possible through working collaboratively and providing your child/children with a safe, loving, stimulating environment in which they are able to grow and develop, as well as feel part of the family.

I acknowledge the importance of a parent’s relationship with their child’s carer and just how imperative it is always to work in partnership. I believe that children thrive off consistency and will work alongside parents/carers to ensure that the child’s routine is as fluid as possible between home and the setting.

Children attending my setting can look forward to:

* Weekly trips to 2 different playgroups.

* Trips to local parks.

* Trips to the library.

* Trips to soft play.

* Access to a garden.

* Range of activities relating to the Early Years Foundation Stage – both planned and free-flow.

* The opportunity to learn Spanish words, songs and phrases.

* Variety of healthy meals and snacks.

* Access to a range of resources and toys.

* Music and story sessions.

* The opportunity to socialise with other children daily.

* A caring home from home environment.

Parents/carers of children attending the setting can look forward to:

* Working closely with me to ensure that your child is fully supported in order to aid development.

* A reliable and consistent service.

* Weekly menus provided at the start of the week (happy to accommodate dietary requirements)

* Food diary – logging how much your child has eaten throughout the day.

* A personal learning journey for your child, so that you are able to see evidence of progress and next steps.

* Open communication, with the opportunity to stay up to date with what your little one has been up to.
