Open from the 1st June 2020 to all children.
I am an OFSTED registered childminder based in Quelm Park, Warfield. I am a mum to three children and I have worked with children of varying ages in a school environment for 10 years. My husband is a children's football coach.
I provide a nurturing, cosy, home-from-home environment where children feel safe and secure in order to learn and develop at their own individual pace. I work closely with parents and carers to follow a child's normal routine and to ensure that each child feels a real sense of family and belonging.
As a childminder, I can be flexible and more spontaneous in terms of planning learning opportunities and experiences, and I teach children about the wider world by exploring on outings and trips. I plan activities tailored to the child's individual interests. I follow and deliver the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) just like any other early years provider. We spend lots of time connecting with nature outdoors. I am a member of Forest Childcare. I believe that lots of outdoor play is vital for a child's wellbeing.
I take children to toddler groups, childminder drop-in sessions, trips to the park and library. Occasionally we may visit a farm or theme park such as Lego Land.
I care for children aged 0-12 and I can offer continuity of care for as long as required. I can assist with transition to school and I will support children attending other settings such as pre-schools or playgroups.
I am trained in paediatric first aid and I have undertaken safeguarding training. I endeavour to keep my knowledge and skills fresh and up to date by attending regular training.
