I am an accredited childminder, belonging to wigan cf childminding network, and so I can offer funded places for two, three and four year olds.
I have been a registered childminder for over 20 years. I have four grown up children of my own and three grandchildren. Previous to childminding we fostered a range of children. I can offer childcare to a number of children ranging between 6 weeks onwards. I provide a safe warm, caring, friendly environment for both children and parents. I have a large selection of toys for all ages and abilities. The children are encouraged to take part in a wide range of stimulating activities, to provide early years learning and development, both indoors and outdoors. This will include such as, role play, baking, craft, books, games, nature activities, trips to groups, ( to help children build on social skills and meet new friends.) libraries and parks. A healthy balanced diet is given to all the children and they are positively encouraged to try different foods on taster days. I have completed a variety of courses including, my level 3 NVQ in childcare, Healthy business award and due to being a member of wigan accredited network this enables me to participate in a variety of different courses and extra training.
