About Me

Dear Parents, welcome to "Little Chicks Childminding Doncaster" We are located within Woodfield Plantation, Doncaster. We have recently been Rated OUTSTANDING by Ofsted 2020 for the 3rd time as Child Prationers; and have been practicing for 19 years focusing on giving the children encouragement and development within the Early Years curriculum. We have a spacious conservatory which is used as a playroom/development room and a new purpose built school summer house that is a key building within the setting to help play and develop the childrens mind and help them "Ready" for school. We have a fully enclosed back garden - including astroturf - brilliant for all-year-round outdoor play. Our setting, both indoors and outdoors is designed and equipped to accommodate children's different ages, stages of development and interests. Abundant wildlife and designated wildlife area for understanding local and world environment.

Our aim is for children to feel safe, secure and happy whilst in my setting. We provide a homely, caring environment where we encourage children to have fun whilst learning and developing. We make observations/written notes; using Development plans and next steps tailored to each individual child's interest and needs; this is also backed up with the "Tapestry Journal" platform so we understand taking lots of photos to share with you, and regularly shared with parents/carers, to illustrate a child's progress, and is retained by parent/carer upon their child leaving my setting. We use also up to-date iPad learning games and exercises. These are specifically taylor made focusing on CBBC/Early Years learning and also other task apps around Maths, Shapes, English (inc early-years spelling) coordination development, sorting and colours. We continue to look at new and innovative ideas that we can bring in to help guide early years development.

My Experience

I have been an Ofsted Registered childminder since 2002, caring for children aged 6 weeks to 10 years. We are also members of PACEY, and have been awarded OUTSTANDING for the 3rd time by OFSTED.

Here at "Little Chicks Childminding" our aim is to provide a professional and caring service for the children and their families, and make a positive difference to their lives. We always strive to be positive and inject some fun into learning! We continually strive to promote a child's confidence, self-esteem and respect. We make frequent visits to Doncaster Wild Life Park, this is an amazing place to have on your doorstep and provides some super learning for early-years children.

We have an excellent understanding of the Early Learning Goals and the seven areas of learning within the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) Practice Guidance which promotes child development.

We are Accredited Childminders for Doncaster Childminding and have met additional standards of practice which are required to become and Early Years Education funded provider. This enables us to deliver nursery education funding for 3 and 4 year olds. This means that parents benefit by having the additional choice for their child to receive nursery education sessions (upto 30 hrs funded, per week) in a home based child care and education setting. We also have funded places for eligible 2 year olds.
