I am a fully qualified Primary School Teacher who has experience of teaching children in Key Stage one and Foundation stage. After teaching for 8 years, I trained as a Childminder in 2004 and have been childminding ever since.
I have cared for a wide variety of children from birth upwards. In addition, I am a SEND registered Childminder and have been awarded 'Outstanding' from my last three Ofsted Inspections.
I have a large, full stocked playroom with en-suite bathroom. The playroom is arranged in 'areas' to encourage learning and development. These areas include:
- Reading/library corner
- Art & craft
- Dressing up/role play
I have full access to a secure early years outside play area with:
- Ride-on trikes
- Sand table
- Climbing frames
I have individual highchairs and car seats for each child, as well as single, double and triple buggies. I have individual bedding, crockery, cutlery, beakers for each child, which are colour coded.
We have two Guinea pigs, Gwen & Bertie, who live in the playroom and offer endless fun and amusement. The children are encouraged to interact with them as much as possible.
