I'm Vera, a OFSTED registered childminder, I am also a member of the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) I live in Handsworth Birmingham. I have over 15 years experience of working with children from birth onwards, I am a qualified Nursery Nurse and have worked as a Nursery manager for over 9 years, I have 2 children of my own aged 15 and 18.

I am committed to delivering the Early Years Education to all children under the age of 5, giving them the life skills, firm foundation of knowledge, and social skills that they need to prepare them for school.
This includes planning for learning experiences based on their needs and interest; I also aim to provide quality wrap-around care for school aged children, ensuring that they arrive at school on time in the morning and are collected and cared for until parents return from work.
I have recently created a home educational setting, in which children learn through playing and exploring how to be independent, how to manage their feelings and develop skills in all areas of development. After school Children get to wind down with; crafts, technology, board games, free play, fun & educational quizzes and games to compliment any homework and time to relax with friends until mum or dad get back from work. I attend local playgroups,childminding groups and libraries with the children.

It was very easy to arrange emergency childcare for my 3 children(aged 3, 6 and 7). A nice home to home childcare setting with plenty of resources to keep children entertained and happy! All three of my children were happy and enjoyed their time there. Not only would I send my children there again but also would I recommend this setting for others!
