I am a Ofsted registered childminder and hold a valid Paediatric first aid certificate and Safeguarding certificate and have completed the Cache Diploma in Home Based Childcare. I am also working towards gaining other qualifications in phonics, mathematics and higher level childcare.
I also work with my partner who is a registered assistant meaning I can offer both a male and female role model within the setting.
I have lots of toys within my setting that children will have access to such as Lego, play dough, arts and crafts, jigsaws interactive toys, instruments and lots more.
I plan to take children out each week to explore local woods, go to parks or soft play areas and explore our local area such as shops, transport and people.
I also attend where possible a mums and tots group at Cannon Park Primary where the children have the chance to play with other children. I have an allotment where the children reguarly join me to help dig. plant and water different fruit and vegetable plants it is still a work in progress but we are currently growing gooseberries, strawberries and giant pumpkins.
I also like to take the children to the Xcel centre to take part in suitable activities such as active tots where children can enjoy a selection of games and a tots group where children can play in the soft play area.
I have a large garden with a large wendy house, ball crawl, trikes, slides, little tykes climber and various other toys. The garden is completely enclosed and a close watch is kept on children at all times.
