About Me

Hello. I'm an Ofsted registered Childminder and a member of PACEY with public liability insurance. I am fully CRB checked. I have several years of experience in the Early Years.

I have a purpose-built room that I use for childminding and it means I can cater for a wider age range of children. The children I care for now and have cared for in the past have loved coming to me and are always happy to see me and my daughter. I provide a very loving and caring environment for all the children I care for, a home from home.

My Experience

I worked in a private daycare nursery for 4 years as a senior Nursery Officer and worked throughout the nursery with children aged from 3 months 5 years old. I also have 3 years experience from placements I did during my studies, from nursery to primary school.

I was also a leader at my local rainbows group when I lived in Whitley Bay but had to give it up because of work hours and because I moved to Gateshead.

My Qualifications

I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Early Childhood Studies. I have recently done my first aid training for adults, children and babies, health and safety training, child protection training and food hygiene training. I have also done training in baby sign when I worked at the nursery. Recently, I gained a level 3 diploma in supporting teaching and learning in schools.

My Availability

AVAILABLE FOR 30 HOURS FUNDING FROM SEPTEMBER. I currently do a school drop off/pick up at Brighton Avenue Primary School and Corpus Christi Primary School in Gateshead. I work term time only. From September I will have 1 space available Monday to Thursday. Also available for school drop off and pick up.
