About Me

Limited space available. 1 part time space for age 0 to 5yrs.

School drop off and Pick up from Purfleet Primary.

My name is Leigh. I have been ofsted registered since 2007

I am Level 3 NVQ qualified in childcare.

My role is to offer quality childcare to children and their families.

I aim to meet all children's welfare requirements and to help them develop in all areas of learning.

I offer a safe, friendly and secure environment where children are free to express themselves.

I enjoy working with the children I care for, watching them grow, develop and become independent.

I offer a wide range of activities:

Arts and crafts (painting, sticking, drawing, chalking, making various items for various celebrations)

Out door play, we have free flow to our outside play area.
We visit other child minder's settings where the children can mix with other children from different backgrounds, ages and areas. We visit soft play areas, go on picnics , weather permitting, visit farms, the beach and various other places.

Children in my care are able to have a vast range of other children to interact with of varying ages.

All the children who are in the Early Years age range have their own personal files where their development and achievements are recorded. As well as the written observations I will have photo's of the children while they are doing various activities. I am happy for all parents to arrange a meeting with me twice a year minimum to look at their children's file and enjoy seeing their children's development.
