I live in East Worthing with my daughters who are now 22 and 26
We have some pets - a rabbit and a tortoise. I work under the guidelines of the EYFS. My aim is that children are happy and learn as they play,with a balance of structured activities and freedom to make their own choices. I offer a warm and friendly environment, the children have a fun and happy time while in my care. They are safe and will be well cared
Graded Good in all areas by Ofsted - 'Children are confident and play well alongside each other, as well as independently. This
shows that they feel safe and secure'.
'Children benefit from a range of outings, which helps to develop
their knowledge of the world and contributes to a healthy lifestyle. '
'The childminder has a good knowledge and understanding of safeguarding procedures and how to keep children safe. '
' The childminder regularly observes children's learning so
she has a secure knowledge of their interests and, therefore, plans challenging and fun activities. Consequently, children enjoy learning and make good progress in preparation for school.'
I have been an Ofsted registered childminder for 22 years, and have looked after children from ages 3 months up to 14 years.
At Val's childminding the children are happy and safe.
I complete learning journal's online for all under 5 year olds, these can be accessed at any time by parents so you can see your child's progress and photos.
Before I became a childminder I had a full time office job and my eldest daughter was in full time nursery, so I understand what it is like to have to leave your child while you are at work. I do everything I can to make it easy for the parents and the child, including settling in sessions.
I have completed level 3 in Children and Young People's workforce.
I am fully up to date with all essential training including pediatric first aid.
I had my latest inspection in September 2018 and have been graded Good in all areas.
