About Me

Johanna Smith level 6 Bachelors Degree with Honors in child development and education. An award in education and traing.

Bluebells Childcare..........

Thank you for taking time to view my profile I now have an availability.

Firstly, having been in the same situation as you, searching for childcare, I can so appreciate how difficult it is for you finding the right person as I've been there myself! Leaving your most precious little baby with a stranger is the hardest and biggest decision to make and let me tell you, no one was good enough to look after my child when I was looking, but, I did find a wonderful child-minder eventually.

I am a OUTSTANDING in Wellbeing of the child the most important area Ofsted Registered ACCREDITED NETWORK Child-minder via PACY I have 20 years experience and immense training.

I am level 6 which is a full Bachelors Degree with honours in Education, Child development and Childcare.

I live in a Victorian house with a large garden where I provide a warm, safe & secure, friendly & family orientated HOME FROM HOME environment in which your child can have fun learning and exploring the world around them. I am very caring towards the children and treat all the children within my care as if they were my own. Lots of cuddles and praise are given to build a relationship where your child will feel secure therefore learning and developing to their full potential building self confidence and self esteem.

I have a large selection of toys and resources to support the children's learning and development and to have fun with :) Activities, outings and play are to suit each child's individual interests and personal potential.

I provide many activities and outings. We go to toddler groups, farms, cinemas, theatres, parks, big adventures in the woods, theme parks and water splash parks to name but a few! But, most importantly, your child will have a huge amount of fun here to experience and learn from at his/her own pace with guidance.

They will develop at a faster rate as majority of your child’s learning is based on 'hands-on' experiences taking our 'indoor' learning outside. In turn your child will also learn how to socialise with other children and adults and naturally have respect for others.

I have experience with a wide and varied range of wonderful children over the years and it is always my aim to work to accommodate each individual child and parents requirements and wishes also to be as flexible as possible in my approach to each child's care.

I am also able to draw down the Early Years Educational Funding, currently 30 hours per week for 2-4 year olds.

I hold a full Public Liability Insurance and hold Fully Comprehensive Childminding Insurance on my vehicle. I also hold an Enhanced CRB Police check.

I do work on recommendation, so I do encourage parents to liaise with me if ever a problem arises. I am very approachable and do work well with all parents & children.

OFSTED have registered me with overnight care so please feel free to use this facility if required.

Please contact me for further details and to discuss your requirements. I am extremely flexible to accommodate shifts and varying hours. We can then make arrangements for you to pop over, view my setting and have a cuppa.

I hope this has helped you in making a decision

Thank you for reading and don't hesitate to ask any questions.

Kind Regards
