Hi, my name is Jade and I live in Shortands (in between Shortlands Train Station and Bromley South Station). I am an Ofsted registered childminder working in my cosy home where I provide a stimulating and varied environment for children. I have over 17 years of experience working with children and families and childcare has always been a passion of mine. My partner George lives with me and works full time in the health and safety industry.
I am a reliable, caring and trustworthy individual. By being fun-loving, patient and responding to each individual child's needs I build a great rapport with them adapting to ages from 0 - 16 years, although I specialise in Early Years between 0 - 5 years. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my three nephews who bring me such joy aged 2, 4 and 11 years of age.
I can guarantee your child will be happy and settled whilst in my care and will thrive to the best of their ability through educational, stimulating and rewarding experiences within the environment I have to offer. Childcare is what I want to excel in and what I do best, by continuing to build on my knowledge and expertise.
I have over 17 years of experience working with children and families from ages 0 – 16 years and also have family support experience. In my recent OFSTED "Outstanding" role I supported teenage mothers whilst caring for their babies, mentoring and guiding them to encourage confidence within their new role as “Mummy”, whilst they continued their studies. I have managed a breakfast and afterschool club and was Deputy Manager at a well-established daycare nursery setting. I also worked in the "Children and young Peoples" department at Croydon Council and in a Family Assessment Centre.
Due to the removal of funding and closure at my recent job of 8 years, I became the Deputy Manager at a local nursery. Here I felt I was unable to offer the care that I wanted to give to the children in this setting due to the high volume of numbers and demand it had, therefore this led me onto setting up in my own home offering a "home from home" environment for children in my care. I have a broad selection of toys and equipment and I am in a great location for the park, library, music and rhyme groups etc. I also have a full clean drivers license to take the children on varied trips, which I feel are important experiences for them. My back garden leads directly out of my back room ‘play room’ where the children will have free flow and choice for indoor and outdoor play. I work with the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) to observe, assess and plan for each individual child whilst creating a safe and stimulating environment for them to thrive and grow to their full potential in.
I currently have a DBS, Paediatric First Aid, Safe Guarding and Food Hygiene certificates along with many more to aid my continual professional development. Offering you confidence that your child/ren will have quality and high standard of care that they deserve.
I have an NVQ 3 qualification in Early Years and Education. Paediatric First Aid. Food Hygiene. Safeguarding 1,2 and 3 and lots more!
