About Me

I have 2 grown up children, 1 has left home and the other is at university and only comes home at uni breaks. I live in the high meadows area of Whitehaven. I have been childminding for 20 years and have seen alot of changes in childminding over the years and i have been able to adapt to these changes very well and have always been able to gets good to outstanding grades during my years as a childminder, my last inspection i received a Outstanding. I offer a home caring environment which is warm and welcoming in a safe & stimulating environment. We have a westie dog who is mainly upstairs, our home is a smoke free zone. I'm very approachable to what the parents are requiring for their children. I'm a car owner and we go off for day trips or able to go to parks, soft play areas, nature reserves which are local as well as going on the bus or walking to some attractions and occasionally go on the train for a day trips.
The children are all welcomed and we follow the EYFS which is given to you on a regularly as well as news letter and additional information to keep us all upto date on your child's progress whilst within my setting. Photos are sent via e-mail to parents so they can see what there child is doing along side the EYFS folder?
