About Me

Hi my name is Natasha.. I live on Randlay with my husband and two daughters aged 11 and 19. I am ofsted registered and I have been childminding since Feb 2010. I have been graded a good in my ofsted inspection in may 2017 I really enjoy my job and ensure that all the children I care for are extremely safe and have fun whilst following the early years guidelines. I currently pick up and drop of at Randlay Primary school .I have a playroom with a wide variety of toys for the children to play with .I also have an enclosed garden which has a variety of toys for the children to play and have fun with which includes a play house, and other outside toys. We also do lots of messy play and creative work. I am a member of the PACEY ..I am located in Randlay very close to the local shops and school with an excellent park nearby. I am located within easy reach of the main industrial estates and the M54 motorway. There is a local conservation area within walking distance from my home which I regularly take the children on nature walks so they can observe and enjoy the surroundings. I offer funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. I have spaces available now March 2020 I can offer the 30 hours funding as well as the 15.

My Experience

Having 2 children of my own and coming from a large family I have lots of experience with children of all ages. I have been childminding for 10
years and in this time I have gained NVQ level 3 in childrens care, learning and development and also attended various other courses that I believe have benefited me in my role as a childminder. Ialso have a level 4 in a advanced childcare practioner. I have looked after children from the age of 5 months old .We visit local playgroups through out the week also the local library so each child can be part of a different enviroment and get to meet other children there is no extra charge for playgroups. I also meet up with other local childminders so the children can play and get to experience a different enviroment.I really enjoy my job and ensure the children in my care have fun whilest they play and learn

Thank you very much its nice to know your daughter had lots of fun while she was in my care. She was a pleasure to look after and I miss her lots hope to see you all soon xx

Tasha has been looking after my child for a year, she's very flexible and reliable and my child loves attending her setting. There's always lots of fun activities for the children to participate in. There is a variety of resources for the children and they can access these resources easily. My child is made to feel at home with Tasha and she treats the children with care and respect.
