Hello, we are a husband and wife team who are Ofsted registered ( graded outstanding) and accredited Childminders with PACEY and the Local authority.
We have 3 children of our own and live in the Romsey area of Cambridge. (Off Mill Road)
We enjoy nature walks, visiting wildlife parks, baking, messy play, singing, dancing, splashing in puddles, learning, reading, cuddles, taking little ones to toddler groups and the local library, enjoying 'All the fun stuff' you can have with little ones around!
We both enjoy helping children develop their own independence and self confidence using resources to build their personalities and strengths. We encourage and let the children in our care know that trying something is just as important as achieving the outcome.
In our setting we encourage children with warmth and care to feel confident and settled being away from their parents and also parents away from their little ones.
We have amazing families we work with, who would be very happy to offer a verbal/written reference for any new families looking at our setting.
We always give each child the time and attention they need to feel comfortable in our care and enjoy getting to know each family well, helping their children thrive while here with lots of input from their parents/carers!
As parents ourselves we understand the importance and anxiety parents feel when finding excellent childcare for our children and we aim to be open, honest, friendly, sensitive, happy, flexible and reassuring.
We live in a child friendly home with a large garden which offers toys, books, resources and play equipment for the children to explore. Our days consist of both fun structured learning and free play and we set out activities the children enjoy and are interested in to develop their next steps in their learning development set out in the EYFS.
We encourage everyone to explore and learn without worry of making mistakes or messes.
We are lucky to be based close to the local park which we use often to explore the world around us, as well as shops, playgroups, library, children's centre in ROMSEY. Cambridge.
I have been working professionally in childcare for 10+ years, in family social care, as a nanny to twins, running a creche provision and working as a family worker, where i worked 1-2-1 in families homes.
We have excellent working knowledge of the EYFS and understand the importance of quality play experiences and how to help children take their next steps in their learning and development in a fun and inspiring home environment.
We have a Ofsted "Outstanding" grade and are qualified in teaching schemas and can identify children's schematic behaviours through play. We use this knowledge and understanding in our home setting to help children develop using equipment and toys that stimulate them.
We have knowledge and experience of children with dairy and egg allergies and eczema.
We also have understanding and experience of 'high needs' babies.
We have hands on experience of children with SEN and happily accommodate and include all children into our setting and daily activities.
