About Me

Celebrating 3 Ofsted 'Outstanding' Inspections in a row. I offer the 15-hour and 30-hour Early Education Funding towards childcare and funding for eligible two-year-olds towards childcare.

Please visit my website to get a feel for my setting and how I support all the wonderful families and their children in my care. I hope you enjoy looking at the blog of just some of the things the children and I enjoy and you are inspired to get in touch.

I’d love to hear from you, so please get in contact or pop by and see us!

My Experience

Ofsted Outstanding on my last three inspections.

My name is Denise and I live with my husband and son in a spacious bungalow in West Christchurch. I have delivered childcare to many wonderful families over the past twelve years, helping children to develop and grow and be ready for their next steps in life.

I pride myself in providing a welcoming, nurturing, home environment which is challenging, with endless opportunities for children to explore.

My Qualifications

I hold an NVQ3 in Children’s Care, Learning and Development and a Level 3 Award in ‘Speech, Language and Communication for Children and Young People 0-25 years’.

I hold a current Paediatric first aid certificate, a Level 1 and Level 2 award in Food Safety and a Level 3 in Safeguarding Children.

To date I have received certificates for 170+ different training courses that daily improve the outcomes for all the children in my care.

I am a self-reflective practitioner and I am always looking to improve my provision for the children. We enjoy fun activities based around the ‘Every Child a Talker’ and ‘I Can’ talk good practise guidelines; and are registered with campaigns such as Change4life and the pre-school educational programme Taste for Life. The children have fallen in love with the activities and they are requested alongside music, dance, cooking, painting and all the other firm favourites.

My Availability

Sorry no vacancies currently. There will be 1 vacancy on a Monday and 1 vacancy on a Friday from September 2022.
