I am a registered childminder and I have been for over 22years, I am married and have two children, one boy aged 25 years and a 21 year old daughter. My husband is also a assistant so we regularly work together. We both hold first aid certificates together with food hygiene and safe guarding amongst many more which I have on display. I live in a quiet cul-de-sac with easy walking to local schools including St Peters and St Josephs in portishead and Brampton pre-school, I live in a five bedroom semi-detached house with private rear fully enclosed garden with ride on bikes and trikes and plenty of outdoor resources including water play facilities and a little tikes jungle climber, the garden is very child friendly. We have a family rabbit and tortoises as pets outside and also a marine fishtank inside and two miniature dachshunds.
I regularly attend local groups such as soft play, the library, and church tots, the children's centre and local parks and monthly visits to a residential home to sing and say hello to the residents, we also have a season ticket for noahs ark zoo farm and also a national trust membership for our tyntesfield and dyrham park days out.
I like to be outside as much as possible on walks, garden play and parks, when home we like to do cooking, crafts,games, small world play and freeplay with the many resources I have that covers all the areas of a childs early years development and we like to also follow the child in their interests.
