About Me

Hello! My name is Diane and welcome to 'Happy Home Childcare - Pontefract'.
It's my aim to provide a homely, secure and happy atmosphere to enable your child to grow, learn and develop to their full potential.
My husband, Andy, and I have been happily married since 1993, we have three children and I have been lucky enough to be a stay at home mum for most of the time.
I'm located close to Pontefract Hospital, within easy reach of the town centre and on a main bus route. There are no problems with car parking.
My home is child orientated and my garden is fully enclosed and gated, with both lawned and paved areas.
Ofsted have rated me GOOD - my ofsted reference number is EY441068 if you want to read the full inspection report.

My Experience

I've been an Ofsted registered childminder since 2012.

I have three children (two sons, born 1997 and 1999, one of whom is on the Autistic Spectrum and a daughter, born 2008).
I volunteered in school to help out with arts and crafts, sewing and listening to the children read.
I also volunteered in nursery to help with the library.

My Qualifications

I have a Level 3 Childcare qualification and I have lots of hands on experience!!
I hold a Level 3 Safeguarding qualification.
I have a Paediatric First Aid Certificate.
I hold a Food Hygiene Certificate and have Food Allergy training.

My Availability

I currently have several vacancies available.

My normal opening hours are Monday through Friday from 7.30am-6.00pm (unless other arrangements have been made). Evening or weekend care is not normally available, but I may accommodate in special cases. I offer both full and part time care, before and after school care, and during school holidays.

I am able to collect and deliver children to The Rookeries school.
