About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

i am a very caring person and i love children and always wanted to work with kids in any capacity so childminding is ideal for me.I have completed my childcare nvq3, advanced makaton and various other courses. I am currently studying a SEND course and Have completed my level 5 childcare .i am always looking at improving my setting.
I have been made approved and accredited by north Somerset this allows my parents to use their government vouchers with me which means they don't have to send their children to a preschool because they might miss out on the 3-4yr old vouchers.
I can also take 2yr old funding and have also accepted other vouchers ie busy bees etc..in the past.
I am all about the kids! And I am always thriving to improve my setting using welcomed feedback from my kids and their parents.

My Experience

i am A fully registered approved and accreddited childminder.
I am recognised by North Somerset Council as a specialist SEND childminder and have been through various courses to achieve this status.
We are also recognised as AN APPROVED PORTAGE SETTING, again it meant vigorous training to accomplish this recognition .

I have been on many courses to both improve my setting and also because i enjoy learning these include child first aid, behaviour,safegaurding, advanced safeguarding, i have completed an enhanced course in makaton.Autism awareness course.

I have also like I mentioned above completed my nvq3 in childcare and development!

At my setting we enjoy getting out in the fresh air and for myself and my assistants to help the children explore and investigate new experiences!

I work with assistants so help is always at hand for the children, my assistants also have a wealth of experience.

My Qualifications

apart from the above i also have 9 gcses and 6 a-levels in subjects such as english, irish, maths, art, french and so on

My Availability

i am available mon to thurs 8-6pm all year round. Currently will have spaces from end of August 2017.
The minimum days i will take children is for 2 days as only having a child 1 day a week makes for longer settling in and a week in a childs mind is a long time. PLus it makes it difficult for me to create a bond with the child if he/she only comes 1 day, it also affects what i can do with their development.
