I have been a childminder now for 15 years and at my last inspection, in July 2019, I was identified as an 'Outstanding' childcare provision. Previous to childminding I worked as a HLTA (higher level teaching assistant) at a local primary school for 10 years. I have two children aged 18 and 22 who still live at home. Over the years I have built up a wealth of knowledge about childcare and education.
I am registered with Wigan council to provide 15/30 hours funded places for 2,3 and 4 years olds depending on eligibility.
I provide a loving, caring, fun, educational home environment for all children. I have a purpose built playroom and an outdoor play area which can be accessed throughout the year.
I am NNEB trained and in 2009 obtained an Open University certificate (level 4) in early years practice.
I provide before and after school places for children who attend Newfold nursery, Newfold primary school and Orrell St James primary school.
I provide full and part time places for children aged 3 months - 11 years and I work both term time and school holidays.
