About Me

My name is Shelley and although I am new to childminding, I have been working as a primary school teacher for nearly ten years.
I have worked in nursery and reception classes across a number of different primary schools and have a very good understanding of the early years foundation stage.
I have two children of my own who are aged 6 and 5 and we also own a very friendly Labrador named Blue!
Our day will be planned around the needs of the children I am caring for on a particular day.
We will regularly attend local children centres as well as toddler groups, parks, the library, etc.
I also offer plenty of opportunities for child-initiated play in my safe and secure home as well as planned adult-initiated activities. These will include painting, messy play and crafts, small world play, story and rhyme time, cooking, play-dough... the list is endless!

My Experience

I have been working as a primary school teacher for nearly ten years now and I am excited to transfer my skills of offering a rich, varied and exciting curriculum to my childminding service which I will be offering in my own home environment.
As mentioned above, I have experience in teaching year groups from nursery up to year 4. Being a mother to two young boys, I have experience in caring for newborn babies and toddlers. I have a range of experience with working with children who have special educational needs such as autism, global development delay, etc.
I am passionate about providing a home from home environment for your child. I care for other children as I do my own, please do get in touch if you would like to discuss anything further.
