Michelle Jones

I have looked after children from 4 months of age up to 11 years of age. I have experience of working with twins.

I've had a lot of experience of working with children in a variety of settings including schools, preschools, a home environment, a pupil referral unit, and special schools. I've looked after children with various needs from birth to 16 years of age. 

I always install good manners into the children I care for and am consistent with routines and discipline. Therefore children are usually very well behaved which allows them to learn social skills in different environments. I try to provide children with as many life experiences as possible such as including them in everyday chores such as shopping, washing and light housework.
This can be done in a fun and an educational way such as matching socks and finding groceries at the supermarket.

Other notes

I have 3 children of my own aged 19, 15, and 2 years.

I have worked as a supply teaching assistant and a behaviour support assistant for children from reception classes up to year 11 secondary.

I have done voluntary work at a playgroup and worked for a year on a temporary contract at a preschool where I still occasionally cover staff absence. 
I have worked with children with special needs such as Downs Syndrome, speech disorders, behavioural problems, and Autism.
The parents were always a very important part of my setting and I involved the parents as much as possible in my day to day routine with the children.
The children I care for are treated like a family member, and always respected as an individual.
I build good relationships with parents, and some have remained family friends after their children have left my setting. 
I can provide you with references from parents of children I have cared for in the past.

I am level 3 qualified and have completed a number of training courses. My training is ongoing so that i can provide the best possible care for your child and ensure I am keeping them as safe as possible .
