I HAVE JUST BEGUN MATERNITY LEAVE AND WILL BE RETURNING TO CHILDCARE NEXT SPRING. I WILL UPDATE MY PROFILE WHEN I AM ABLE TO CONFIRM A DATE.
My Name is Becky Gillett
I am a Ofsted registered Childminder. I live in South Ham, close to the library and park. I live with my partner in a three bedroom house, with garden.
I have many toys and resources for creative play. My goal is for the children to have fun and learn while they play, including plenty of outdoor time.
There are a variety of groups for under fives at the local library, construction club, story time and rhyme time which we can attend for free, also borrow from a huge selection of books.
As a Childcare Practioner with experience I have a sound understanding of child development. This enables me to easily plan activities to suit the children's developmental stages and current interests, which fall in line with the Early years Foundation stage curriculum.
Each child will have a learning journal on the Tapestry. Tapestry is an on line site where messages and photos can be shared securely with families. I will track each child's development in line with the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum.
I can prepare fresh homemade cold lunches and healthy snacks to provide a tasty diet for the children. Although I do not offer an evening meal I am happy to heat up any meals provided by parents.
13 years experience in nursery and a variety of child care settings.
References - I am happy to share full references and contact details from previous childcare positions on request. Here are a few extracts:
Nursery Nurse position, reference by Nursery Manager
Becky has given the children varied play experinces and also provides wonderful care to the children's individual needs.
Becky will produce wonderful in-depth observations with great ease using the Tapestry system, within the setting. Becky sets high standards in her job, which I am sure I will find difficult to fill but I am sure she will continue her high principles wherever she goes.
Volunteer at Childrens Charity, reference by Charity Founder
Becky is a very thoughtful, honest person with great patience.She has enthusiastically supported our children's gardening club for the last three years.
Becky works woderfully with young children, has the ability to speak to them appropriately and encourage them to play and learn. She loves all the creative side of learning and getting young children involved and always has their best interests at heart.
Nursery Nurse position, reference by Nursery Manager
Becky clearly loved being with the children and was at ease relating to them at their level and understanding their needs.
I have CACHE Level 3, Diploma in Childcare, Paediatric First Aid and Safer Food Handling. Over the years I have attended many courses, a few of which include safeguarding, EYFS Training, Training for Play workers on special needs including autistic spectrum disorders. Books and Storytime workshop, Focus On Threes, Treasure basket and Heuristic play and schemas training.
6.30 am - 6.45pm. I can be flexible with additional hours occasionally, if required
I plan to take three/four children in my child minding group.
I have chosen to work to lower ratios as I feel that having a small group would create a fun and calm learning environment and enable me to give more time and attention to each child.

Becky cared for my son from aged 6 months to 2 years. She was always friendly and approachable and answered all of my questions and concerns reagrding my son's health and development. Becky has a lovely, clean home and lots of toys and learning materials and she also has a safe outside space for playing. Becky was great at reading with my son and he now really loves books! She was flexible to any changes I needed to make to our childcare times and was easily reachable via phone and text message. Becky used the Tapestry app to keep me informed of what my son was doing, and how he was every day and was really good at passing on information.
Becky's prices are very reasonable and even though her prices do not include food, nappies and wipes I would often find that if my son wanted or needed something else, he was provided with it!
Becky took my son along to the library, to a sensory group, to a toddler group and regularly out to the park and for walks.
I completely recommend Becky and will be seeking her services for my future childcare needs.
Response by Bex on 01/03/2021:
Thank you for the lovely review. It was a pleasure caring for AJ and watching him grow into a lovely little boy. We had lots of fun adventures exploring together. Always happy to accommodate any future childcare needs you may have.
Becky cared for my daughter for a short period of time, but she went out of her way to ensure my little girl had the best experience whilst in her care. Becky is extremely welcoming and was fantastic with my daughter. I have no hesitation recommending Becky, and I hope we can return to her in the near future
