As an Ofsted Registered Childminder, I am offering a fun, friendly, stimulating home from home environment for any child to come and enjoy.
I have been married for 16 years and I live in a 3 bedroom house in a quiet cul-de-sac in Warfield. I have 4 children aged 11yrs, 8yrs, 5yrs and 4yrs old. They all currently attend Holly Springs School in Bullbrook.
We are a strict non-smoking household and I’m fully paediatric first-aid trained. I promote the Early Years Foundation Stage using all different types of activities including story time, musical instruments, messy play, role play and arts and crafts.
We love nothing more than being out and about exploring new things! I provide a wide range of activities from arts and crafts, baking, puzzles, toys, playgroups, trips to the park, woodland walks, playing in the garden and the library.
I use the online babys days system which provides regular contact with the parents detailing updates, feedback and progression. The system is a fantastic way of keeping everything up to date, including any transitions or changes that may be happening so I can work closely with the parents/guardian and offer extra support. When a new child joins me, I like the parent/guardian to complete an ‘all about me’ questionnaire so I can get to know you all better as a family and also offer two free one hour sessions for helping the child settle in. I like to use the journal to find out each child’s interests to help plan activities they’ll enjoy, and share ideas for other children which helps develop and build more confidence in their own time.
