About Me

My name is Joanna; I am 46 years old and live with my partner Mark 49, and my two sons aged 18 and 15, in Great Ashby.
Ofsted graded me OUTSTANDING in all areas during my most recent inspection and I am accredited so can offer 15 hours free care to eligible 2/3/4 year olds through the nursery education grant.

I have been a childminder for 15 years and was initially attracted to the profession because of the pleasure I gained from providing my own children with challenging and stimulating activities at which they could succeed and seeing them grow, develop and learn.

I have a BA in Early Years and am a qualified Early Years Teacher.

My Experience

My aim is to provide attentive, sensitive care to children ensuring they are at all times, safe, secure, happy, stimulated and comfortable in their surroundings. I see my role as providing a normal daily routine and environment incorporating all the things children would ordinarily encounter with their parents.
These include walks, visits to friends, attendance of toddler groups or school, stimulating play, crafts, trips to shops and parks, outings and rest.
I provide a diverse range of toys and activities to develop them creatively, physically, intellectually, socially and emotionally ensuring they mature into well rounded, confident, well behaved individuals proud of who they are and where they come from.

My Qualifications

I have a BA in Early Years and am a qualified Early Years Teacher.

Hertfordshire Quality Standards (HQS) is a quality assurance scheme for providers of early years childcare and education in Hertfordshire.

The award verifies the setting or individual meets the HQS criteria and provides a high quality service and environment that exceeds the requirements of the Ofsted standards. I first achieved my HQS status in July 2003 and renew it in accordance with the regulations, every 3 years.
