Ofsted Registered

About Me

Vacancies - Monday only.

Hello my name is Claire Wright, I am a registered childminder in Crownhill .
I received a "Good" on my first Ofsted inspection in October 2012, I have recently had my second inspection and received a "Good" (September 2016).

I have over 21 years experience working with children from birth onwards. I have a BA Honours in Early Years along with up to date Paediatric First Aid and Safeguarding training. I also have specific training for working with babies and children under three.

My husband and I have four children, a boy 20 years old and two girls aged 7 years, 5 year old and a 4 year old. We have a dog. I enjoy being with my family, reading, crochet, baking and being outside. We love to explore the beaches and natural areas around us. We also attend regular playgroups where the children are able to form good relationships with their peers.
I have an area of our home which is used for the children to play, learn and have fun.

I am available Monday to Friday 7:30 - 6, however it is possible to have extended times, overnight and occasional weekends, I can also offer one off days if needed.

I currently only have vacancies for after school with pick ups from Eggbuckland Vale.

I have vacancies through the school holidays if you would like to enquire please give me a call.

I live close to the naval base and a ten minute bus ride from the city centre.

During the day I plan different activities these range from painting, drawing, cooking, physical play, as well as these I take the children to the park, to play groups, to another childminders home for groups.
We have trips to Dartmoor Zoo, the Aquarium, the Hoe, the moors and jump.

I provide each child with a home diary that I write in to say about your child's day, I also complete a Learning Journey about your child including photos, observations drawings and paintings. I also encourage parents/carers to write and add to the child's diary and Learning Journey.

Please do not hesitate to phone me on my mobile number for any enquiries.
Thank you for looking at my profile.

My daughter has been going to Claire one day a week for about 6 months now. She always has a brilliant time and she often doesn't want to leave. She does lots of activities and always brings home paintings etc. Claire documents everything Cerys does with photos and a journal so that we can see exactly what she's been doing. Claire often takes Cerys on trips to the park and the aquarium, which she loves. We have always felt very at ease leaving Cerys with Claire and we're very pleased with the service she provides.

In my opinion, Claire is an outstanding childcare provider. As a teacher myself I had high expectations of the care I would like my children to have. Not only has Claire met these, but she has provided so much more for both of my children.
We are greeted everyday with a warm and friendly welcome and my children are only too eager to get inside for the fun and games to begin!
Claire regularly takes the children on outings and spends quality time with them individually. If there is homework to be done, the children are given time and support to do this.
The children have built a relationship with Claire built on mutual respect and absolutely adore her and her family.
I have only positive things to say about Building Blocks Childcare and highly recommend them.
