Hi, My name is Linda, I am a registered full time childminder based in Blackheath off shootershill road, South east London.I have 3 lovely children of age 13 years old, 8 years and 4 years old.
I do not have any pets. I do not smoke so my home is smoke free.
I made the decision to start up my own business after my youngest son was born, I have researched all aspects of child care including the EYFS and I am qualified in Level 3 Award in Preparing to Work in Home-based Childcare (HBCA)
I have also gained my first aid certificate in pediatric first aid along side an additional course in safeguarding. (Safeguarding of Children)
My true passion is child development and I have enrolled in extra courses to gain a better understanding of this subject .
I run my business from my family home, there is a designated play room and a big garden with lots of resources where the children in my care do their activities.
The environment I provide will be very much focused on developing the children in line with the EYFS. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.We do visit local parks, libraries, fun parks and forest schools (fee might be required for this service)
Trained Healthcare assistant worked in both private & NHS hospitals where i worked in children wards for over 10 years.Trained childminder working with children of all ages ensuring that all their level of learning and development is attained at every stage of their development. And yes as a mother of 3kids too i have gain lots of practical experience in meeting their daily needs both their educational needs ranging from assisting them in completing their homework and studying.It has taught me alot about teaching and patience that is required to ensure the target is achieved.
Regular training courses undertaken including weekly webinars to promote child development.

Thank you so much for your review and trusting us to care for your lovely daughter,i remembered how curious you were the day you came for viewing. Oh she is a Covid-19 time born baby, it's her first time..... But look at how she settled and even was an outstanding baby on my Ofsted inspection day as the inspector spotted her, she loved and appraised her smartness.
