My Experience

I have been an Ofsted Registered childminder under Rochdale for 20 years and care for children from birth to the age of 13. I have always had the highest grade at Ofsted inspections and been part of an accredited network. I have childminded for siblings for up to 15 years for one family with 4 children and get lots of word of mouth and references from other people. I strive to provide a homely, safe, educational, home which is a bungalow and arranged to suit the needs of still being a home but educational and fun filled setting. I have a lovely back garden which has a stage and wooden gazebo with sand and water pit outside. I provide the 2 yr old pilot and 3 yr old flexible entitlement. I am also a sponsored day carer. I have a childminding assistant who works alongside me who has a lot fo background social services experience and experience with parents and children. I produce termly newsletters, children's learning journeys, daily diaries, photograph albums for each pre school child. I take the children on lots of trips and educational places to visit. I offer play opportunities in all 7 area's of learning for the E,Y,F,S of personal, social and emotional, language and communication, physical, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive art and design. I have vast amounts of references on file and a fully inclusive practice and parent pack. I welcome all individual children regardless of race, culture, ability, gender e.t.c.
