About Me

Hi, my name is Terri and I have been registered by ofsted as a childminder for just over 7 years.

I have one daughter Simone (monie) who is 28 years old and at has just achieved a 1st in business communications at Liverpool John Moors university, she is now in full time work, is married to Dan and has recently bought and is renovating her first house.
We have 2 elderly cats both of whom are quite shy and usually disappear when anyone comes around.

I come from a large family of 7 children and have lots of nieces/nephews of varying ages from 49 down to great nieces and nephews of less than a year old so i have always been around children and love their company.

I have lots of resources to enhance children's learning and to make our days fun but a lot of our time is spent out and about, farms, park's, beaches, fruit picking local soft play centres, I find it helps build children's confidence and allows them to socialise whilst experiencing new exciting things. Climbing on a haystack is much more exciting than sitting with a jigsaw although I do think jigsaws have their place too :-)

My Experience

Before being registered I worked for 5 years in an after school club in Penwortham, a job which i loved,
I have also had voluntary experience of working as a teaching assistant in a local primary school whilst i gained my level 2 teaching assistant certificate with a special needs module.
I have also been a childminder for members of my family.
I have in-depth (6 years) experience working with children who have English as their second language.

I am signed up forthe government free childcare funding, various voucher schemes and the tax free childcare scheme.
I will also be doing before school care with drop offs at St Teresa's Primary School in Preston and after school care with pickups from Brockholes Wood Primary School in Preston.
I rarely work with the full quota of children as I like to be able to give them individual attention but a part time place could be available if need be.
