I am an Ofsted registered childminder and offer a welcoming and warm home from home environment for the children i care for. I have been in childcare for 23 years and a childminder for 15 of those. I live with my Husband and 3 children ages 20, 17 & 6, I have a large garden and a dedicated playroom. I have a level 3 in childcare along with my first aid, i under extra training when necessary and relavant to the children in my care.
It's important that the children are happy, relaxed and enjoy their time at my setting for them to develop to their full potential. Each day is different as I like to keep a varied routine with lots of activities to offer an exciting and stimulating environment, with the opportunity to help and encourage the children to develop at their own pace, each child is induvidual and unique. We spend alot of time when possible outdoors and out in our environment exploring the world around us, we attend local attractions, parks, the beach, toddler groups, the woods & many more. The children love the freedom and independance this brings for them. I have small ratios to be able to dedicate my time during the day equally to each and every child and give them the opportunities to grow and develop before they leave for school.
