My name is Kerry Day and I work alongside my wonderful mother in law Vivian Daly.
We have taken this amazing opportunity to work as business partners doing what we love.
Viv lives with her husband and two sons and I have been there for over 6 years now. Viv has over 15 years’ experience working with children from being a nursery nurse, baby room leader and then to the nursery cook which she has helped her recent setting achieve a healthy setting award.
I have worked with children for 6 years and have gained a lot of experience starting as a nursery assistant and working my way up to room leader. I have experience working with working with all age ranges and have been a pre-school room leader so I have knowledge on preparing children for their transition to school.
We felt that it was the right time in our lives and that we needed more of a challenge and so we decided to become childminders, we have the experience and knowledge and we understand what an emotional roller-coaster it can be finding the right person to look after your child.
We work together as a team and both have amazing work ethics. We both have great understanding of the Early Years Foundation Stage and will teach and help the children to develop and grow into happy confident children, in a safe and caring environment.
About our setting:
Viv, her husband, two sons and myself live in a lovely 4 -bedroom semi- detached house in sale. We have an enclosed private garden with secure gates. We have had a log cabin built in the garden which is a dedicated space/playroom for the children. The children will have access to the outdoor garden every day.
The children will have access to the following rooms:
Log cabin- this is our main playroom with all the toys and resources set out for children
Kitchen- Children will have access to the kitchen when they are baking/cooking with Viv
Downstairs Toilet- Children will have access to this at all times
Livingroom- Children will have access to this room if they need quiet time or they become suddenly ill
Garden- The children will have access to the garden every day, we will plan outdoor games, outdoor toys, water play, mud kitchen and vegetable patches to grow their own vegetables.
If children need a nap during the day then we will set out the cabin ready for sleep by placing bed mats out on the floor with fresh clean bedding every day.
For younger children we have travel cots so if they need more frequent naps we can arrange this by taking them into the living room.
Children who don’t nap will have the use of the TV for quiet time or reading stories in the book corner or they will have access to outside play.
Viv offers baking and cooking classes to the children and has expeirence catering for children with a wide range of diets including allergies and cultural diets.
We both have a wide range of experience, i have over 7 years experience working with children in a nursery setting as a room leader. Viv has over 15 years experience working with children as a nursery nurse and then becoming the nursery cook. Viv has created a 4 weekly menu consisting of healthy home cooked meals and has gained a healthy setting award in her previous setting through these menus.
