About Me

I am a registered NICMA insured childminder based in Newtownbreda (close to Cairnshill/Fourwinds/Ormeau/Rosetta) In 2010 I gained a City & Guilds NVQ III in Children's Care, Learning and Development and I have completed all the necessary training to remain a registered childminder, which includes Paediatric First Aid, Child Protection and Health & Safety. I have over 5 years experience of childminding.

So what does Kiddiwinkles Korner Newtownbreda offer the children?

I have a purpose built playroom which provides space for children to play with a wide range of toys/games/puzzles and get creative with paints, playdoh, crayons and much more. Arts and crafts are displayed in the playroom along with photos of the children, which I believe creates a fun and welcoming environment for the children and helps them have a sense of belonging.

But really play at Kiddiwinkles Korner Newtownbreda is based on good old fashioned outside play. There are 2 rear spacious enclosed gardens. The first provides a patio area allowing the children a space to get scooting or for the older children a spot of cycling. There is a PVC safety glass greenhouse to encourage participation in planting and growing in all weathers along with a dedicated raised bed for the children to grow their favourite fruit & veg they can eventually take home.
The second garden, known to the children as ‘The Secret Garden’ provides further activities such a trampoline, jungle gym, football nets, badminton, swing ball etc. If its a choice between the park or secret garden then the children will usually choose the secret garden, although we do have frequent trips to local parks too!

Whilst offering the benefits of having a playroom and the gardens, I also aim to provide a warm and friendly home environment where the children also experience day to day family living.

I currently collect from Forge Integrated School at 3pm every day and will continue to do so for the new school year 18 - 19.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A FEW YEARS, I AM ABLE TO OFFER THE FOLLOWING AFTERSCHOOL AND HOLIDAY VACANCIES:
MON, TUE, THUR, FRI - EITHER AT 2PM FROM A LOCAL SCHOOL OR 3PM FROM FORGE INTEGRATED PRIMARY.
