Hello, I am an Ofsted registered childminder graded Outstanding in November 2014. I currently care for two chiildren; 27 months and have a 10 month old starting in 3 months during the day and, until recently, an 11 year old girl since she was a baby. I cared for her after school and during school holidays. My records show that I have minded each child from a few months of age. This cements my understanding that parents are very happy with the duty of care I provide. I have excellent references from past and present parents which are available to view as well as my latest inspection report. Please press link at the bottom of this page to access it. I live near Warfield, close to Central Bracknell with my husband and two children. My daughter is 24, graduated and my son is 27, graduated and both children still live at home, just. My house has a large breakfast room where they access the garden through. There is a downstairs toilet and children have their own designated toy room which caters for all ages, gender and culture. New toys are purchased regularly so that my toy inventory is maintained to a high level. All equipment is kept in excellent condition and replaced when necessary. I have no pets, ponds or water features so that children can enjoy playing in my safe and secure garden. Nobody smokes who reside at the setting and I have a no smoking and mobile phone policy in place.
All of my minded children have developed in advance of their years both socially and academically in readiness for school. This is because they are taken out daily to enjoy either music and dance classes, science hands on exhibitions, toddler groups, soft play areas, local walks, farms and parks. This educates them in understanding the world from a young age. I work closely with parents and nurseries so that your child is supported at home and in the setting always. This also ensures they settle in quickly and continue to achieve the best they can. Ofsted said 'children make oustanding progress from a highly skilled and motivated teacher in a first class practice'. When they leave my care, children take with them a learning journey, an art/craft folder and a memory stick of photographs and videos full of happy memories. I hold a Paediatric First Aid certificate, a Level 2 in Food Catering and have undertaken Safeguarding Children training, level 1 and 2, as well as in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). All records kept are stored and data/password protected. I have a clean driving licence, public liability car insurance and are Local Authority approved. Please contact me if you require any general childcare advice or guidance on how a childminding setting works. I would be happy to arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements and relevant costs further. I accept childcare vouchers/tax free childcare. I have one space available for four days preferably per week, but would consider three days, within Monday to Thursday only.
