I am a registered childminder with a good ofsted grading. i have been childming for 7 years and worked in a nursery before then.
My husband is registered as my assistant the children we have all love the fact that we both work together, it makes them feel more at home and enables us to spend more time with the children as they have an set amount of time alone on a one to one basis to so that we can do assessments of their ability.
I attend 3 groups a week as I feel it is important for children to socialise with many children, one of which I run my self, one I help out at.
When we are not at groups we do have planned activities.
We do lots of painting, cooking, messy play and educational learning through play.
I also have three children of my own so I've had lots of experience of being a mum.
I have my NVQ Level 2 and I am doing my Level 3.
We go to the local park and local library.
