Tinkerbells Childminding (G. Linahan)

I have been a childminder for nearly 16 years and have a range of experiences. I qualified as a Nursery Nurse in 1997 and worked as a nanny, managed a nursery and worked around the local hospitals as a newborn hearing screener. 

I am now a Specialist Childminder (SEND). This scheme is run by North Somerset Council and aims to develop childminder’s skills and confidence in supporting children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

I  have  attended North Somerset inclusion training, and have a commitment to attending further training to support the needs of children with additional needs.  I will have access to the Specialist Childminder coordinator who is available to provide support and guidance around meeting the individual needs of your child. In addition, I will have access to a North Somerset Area SENCO from the Early Years and Childcare service for advice and guidance.

I have attended various courses including makaton, first aid,  EYFS training, food hygiene and lots more.
