I have been childminding since 2007 and enjoy it as much now as I did when I first started, I had my last Ofsted Inspection in December 2019 and achieved a Good grade. I have lots of experience with children having 3 of my own aged Natasha born 1984, Karla 1987 and Zak 1998. I also have 3 granddaughters. I have worked in both, preschools and day nurseries as well as helping out and working at a primary school. I do daily pick up/drop off to Springfield School. I have a purpose built playroom with toilet which is ideal for when potty training takes place, I also have a large back garden with outdoor play equipment. Indoors the children are free to play with a variety of toys which are all age appropriate as well as arts & crafts and cookery. We like to read a story as a group  before nap time, although books are readily available for the children to look at, we go to the local library once a week to read books and select some new ones to bring home. I also go to regular toddler, singing and music sessions, we tend to spend every morning at a group and afternoons spent within the house allowing the younger children to have a nap. We socialise with other local childminders getting together for playdates. I do daily record sheets for the children which then enables the parent to read exactly what their child has done and see where we have been. I have my level 3 diploma in childcare, as well as my Paediatric first aid and safeguarding. I like the children to learn through their play and all their learning runs in line with the EYFS framework allowing me to track their progress

Age range 0 to 11 years.
