I’m I am highly experienced with working with preschool children getting them ready for school. I have a child with additional needs so I have a lot of experience with adapt activities to meet the child’s individual needs which a nursery cannot always do. I am able to fill in and carry out all paper work relevant for those with IEPs.
As a Mum of twins it gave me the awareness of how babies and children have individual needs and develop at various stages.

Catherine is a fantastic childminder, right from the very first meeting with my daughter and I she made us feel welcome, comfortable and at ease. My daughter attending settling in sessions prior to starting and the communication and updates I received put me at ease.Her home is warm and welcoming with great resources available for the children to play and learn with. I used the service in the first two weeks when my daughter started school and needed collecting early whilst I could not get out of work. This was a big change in my daughters life starting school but Catherine made the transition for her easy. taking into account my daughters interests and setting up fun activities based around what she enjoyed doing. I would highly recommend her services and wouldn't hesitate to use her again in the future.
