About Me

** Latest CIW Inspection - 27th Feb 2019 achieved EXCELLENT Rating in ALL areas**

Hi my name is Faye and I am a mum of two beautiful girls who are 10 and 12 years of age and I am happily married to my husband of 16 years.

I offer a warm loving and caring home away from home experience with lots of fun things to do, allowing children of all ages to learn, develop and engage in numerous activities in a safe, secure environment that is smoke and pet free.

I have spacious enclosed gardens with playhouse, trampoline, slides, water play, sand play, bikes, sports equipment etc. to support physical outdoor play/learning.

I work in partnership with you to provide the best level of care and attention supporting your child's development during the early years and beyond.

All aspects of your child's development will be catered for following the Early Years Foundation Phase through play with monthly newsletters issued detailing planned theme and activities set for the month ahead.

I record all your child's development monthly; and complete Summative Assessment Reports on how your child has progressed towards EYFP and how I plan to support their learning (through play) to help your child develop further with your guidance and requests.

I have an excellent communication system so that I can work in partnership with you to care for your child’s needs.

Prior to becoming a childminder, I was an NVQ assessor for thirteen years, supporting learners to achieve their maximum potential achieving recognised qualifications, including Hospitality, Customer Service and Management qualifications. I supported each leaner in achieving a minimum of Level 2 qualifications and improving their numeracy and literacy ability. I was also a manager working in McDonalds for four years prior to this. Both these occupations assist me in the role of childminding due to food safety standards that I have to adhere to and observations that I will be carrying out on children, planning for their individual needs following the Early Years Foundation Phase.

We are an English speaking family but I will be actively promoting the Welsh language with children in my care.

My Experience

I have experience working from birth with a reputation for providing excellent care focusing on a child’s health and wellbeing,

Prior to this, my girls have provided me with a lot of experience.

I ensure that:
•My home is a safe and healthy environment for all children.
•Children are safe from harm physically and mentally.
•We have a strong loving relationship and that they experience enjoyment achieve and learn daily.
•Positive behaviour is rewarded and encouraged, always learning right from wrong.
•I help to maximise their potential through a consistent approach to their behaviour and allowing them to experience new things for themselves.

The experience I have obtained and the knowledge learnt is the basis for the quality of service I provide. I put the same amount of love, effort and support into the children I look after as my own children.

Below are the latest reviews for Littlens Childcare. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

I would recommend Faye to anyone. She created a fun and safe environment for my little boy and he loved spending time with her and her lovely family.
He experienced so much from messy play, to playing outdoors to day trips and had so much fun he didn't want to leave!!
My son was rather difficult to settle at first being away from me but the patience and care she showed for him paid off and he's become a sociable forward little boy.
A warm loving environment that I would recommend to anyone.
