I am a Ofsted Registered Childminder and have a current DBS. I love working with children and offer a welcoming and secure home from home environment. I have appropriate toys/books along with a large garden and outside play equipment.
I provide fun and creative activities that meet the national framework (EYFS). Activities include arts and crafts, reading, role play/dressing up, cooking, gardening, puzzles, celebrations, musical play and help with homework.
I attend stay and plays/toddler groups at Children Centre's. I also enjoy taking children on trips to the park, farms, swimming, museums, picnics and libraries.
I can provide daily meals/snacks, i encourage healthy eating and hygiene.
I have had 2 inspections from Ofsted, both times i have been given a ''Good" grading.
From September 2011-July 2012 i did volountary work in my daughters Reception Class helping with Phonics, Reading, Writing and managed groups of children on many school trips.
Coming from a large family i have had a lot of hands on experience with babies and children. From my teenage years I was babysitting for family and family friends. I was known to be reliable and trustworthy. My friends today feel very comfortable leaving their children in my care, this sometimes being overnight.
In 2012 I trained to be a registered childminder. This included training in childcare, first aid, child protection, managing behaviour, food hygiene, safeguarding etc....I regularly update and go on other childcare training courses to keep up to date.
Now at 37yrs old i am married with 2 daughters aged 15 and 12 who both attend full time school and a 3 year old son who is soon to start nursery full time.
We are animal lovers and have 2 dogs, a 4yr old beagle called Rosie who has grown up with all the kids i have minded over the last few years, she is the most patient dog and loves children. Then we have Luna, our weimaraner who is 10 month old and loves to play. We also have a cat called Milly, that loves to sleep all day and an african snail that doesn't say much! haha
