About Me

Myself and my husband I have had a Dbs hold a first aid certificate and are taking on going training.
I care for children between the age of 0 to 12 years. I provide meals/snacks and drinks. I do various activities such as art and craft,messy play,sensory play indoor play and out door. I take children to local sure start centres, libraries, museums ,farms and zoos.We may be able to offer pick ups and drop offs from your home if needed with additional charges and offer hours to suit parents needs. Pick ups from William hulme grammer school and Wilbraham school After school care provided. I offer the15/30 hours free childcare. I am also registered with the tax scheme where 20 percent of childcare cost is contributed by the government. I provide over night care emergency child care and in an adhoc basis

My Experience

All providers of education and care to children from birth to the age of five must follow the standards set in the early years foundation stage (EYFS) framework.
Assessment, based on observation of children's learning and development, is an integral part of the EYFS. All early years providers must complete an EYFS profile for each child during the academic year they reach the age of five (for most children this is the reception year in primary school). As a child minder I work in line with the EYFS.
• Starting a business from the beginning promoting and building its reputation.
• Managing the day to day running of the setting
• Creating a caring and stimulating environment that promotes learning through play.
• Running the setting in line with environmental, health and safety and fire regulations.
• Supervising activity planning to make sure that children's needs are met.
• Working closely with parents to promote positive relationships and giving them a chance to be involved, including regular parents' evenings.
• Making sure that equipment, such as furniture and toys, are in good condition and are suitable for children.
• Ensuring my assistant has up to date training and DBS.
• Carrying out regular risk assessments, being aware of training needs and developing teamwork.
• Managing a budget and making sure that the setting is profitable
administration tasks, such as with regular.
• Regularly reviewing policies and procedures and ensuring staff and parents adhere to them.
• Working in line with Early years framework
• Taking up any training available to improve my knowledge and setting
• Keeping up to date with changes to the welfare requirements and EYFS
• Always looking for opportunities to improve on my practice.

I have 13years experience of working with children and in the childcare profession.

Thank you for the review and I’m glad you feel like this. Your baby is beautiful and a pleasure to look after x

Zarah is a highly qualified and experienced childcare professional working with her family. It is obvious she has a passion in her work through the environment in Zarahs Day Care and her conduct with myself and children in her care. Just after a few visits all my daughter talkeds about is Zarah and her family. She looks forward to going there. I am happy with the chosen childcare provider and would highly recommend the setting as Zarah offers flexible hours and where possible.
