About Me

*I have been living and working in Hertfordshire since 2017 so now that we are moving back to my hometown I am looking for new minded children*

Hi! I’m Lynzie, I’m 30 and a mum myself the eldest of which is 9
We have a large detached home overlooking fields, I have a designated contained playroom which is well equipped and downstairs toilet facilities purely for minded children.

Whilst I love my home and I like everything ‘in its place’ I believe children should always be allowed to be children - noise, mess and a little bit of madness is always welcome in my home and messy play will always be encouraged ( please make sure your child comes in clothing your happy to get dirty!)

I believe children learn from exploring so children in my setting will always be provided open opportunities in which we can learn and expand our skills and knowledge. My resources and age appropriate toys will be updated regularly depending on the children I currently care for and their interests.

I like to spend as much time outdoors with the children as possible; walks, puddle jumping, wildlife watching. Then also more structured days out and occasionally we will travel a little further and have an even bigger adventure. I have up to date business insurance, MOT and my vehicle is regularly serviced and well maintained.

Having worked with adults and children with SEN/D I would love to welcome ALL children into my setting and I will always fully support the inclusion of every child. I will always make sure I have appropriate resources and toys for each child. If any further training or knowledge is required before I care for your child, I will endeavour to do this as soon as possible around existing work commitments.

All of the EYFS (early years foundation stage) children will follow the same curriculum as what is followed in a day nursery – just with a much smaller ratio.

Children in my setting will be monitored and records kept of their developmental stage so I will always know what stage they are currently at and I will always be aware of the next steps required of me to bring them on further. My aim is to always have the children under my care, be school ready by the time they leave me. I want to encourage the children to be happy, healthy, confident individuals who have the skills to form new friendships.

I understand all children are different and have different home routines. I want to work closely with the parents to make the transition to childcare simple.

I offer year round contracts and term time only contracts..

I may be able to offer ad-hoc care but availability can not be guaranteed.

My Experience

Since leaving school I’ve worked in areas centred around the care of others. I worked in a primary school for around 5 years doing everything from assisting at lunch times to working in the Early Years Unit. I used to help run an after school club and whilst my daughter was small I worked as a classroom assistant.

I left the world of children behind and ventured into adult care. For 4 years I worked with adults, some with complex health needs and challenging behaviours and then I took on my last role with adults with learning disabilities.

I have children myself so I also have personal experience as well as professional.

I have completed safeguarding courses, childminding courses, first aid and I'm looking forward to doing a BSL course in 2020.

My Qualifications

All legally required courses have been completed including full paediatric first aid, safeguarding, food hygiene.

My Availability

Available Monday - Friday, 7am till 6pm ( additional hours may be agreed outside of normal working hours at a higher rate) overnight care also available if convenient to myself.
