Maria Gildart

Hi, I live in the Greyhound area of Leigh. I was awarded a Good with Outstanding features in my most recent Ofsted inspection, September 2015. I have been working as a childminder for 16 years, with previous experience of being a nursery nurse. More recently I have qualified from the Open University, with a level 4 Early Years Provision qualification (Childhood Studies) which reinforced my previous knowledge and brought me right up to date with the Early Years sector. I am constantly looking at improving my skills to better help the children I care for.

I work in partnership with parents; to gain the best outcomes for your child by delivering a more inclusive practice. I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum from a play based approach, which is a balance of child initiated and adult lead activities. I provide a dedicated play room which overlooks the large secure garden, full of large play equipment and small outdoor toys, giving children a free flow of both areas to meet their individual needs.

Most morning the children are taken to the local community to the library, learning through play activity mornings, soft play areas, museums, parks, farms cinema, zoo, etc. The children are offered 3 healthy meals and healthy snacks daily

I pick up and drop of from St Thomas primary school Astley Steet Leigh
