I am an Ofsted registered childminder in Leigh near to Pennington Wharf/Slag Lane currently serving Lowton West Primary School, offering affordable childcare in a homely environment. I live with my two children aged 6 and 11 in a lovely residential area close to local amenities. I have a spacious home and dedicated playroom and good sized rear garden. I offer parents a flexible, safe and friendly service.
Children will follow the EYFS and have quality learning experiences in a home from home environment with access to outdoor play, activities, outings and visits to local playgroups and play areas. I offer a wide range of resources and activities which are fun, support learning and help children to prepare for school.
My qualifications include Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene, Safeguarding, Behaviour Management, Safe Sleeping, Allergies, Child Development and Characteristics of Learning. Also I have completed other training which I have certificates for. I have the relevant insurances and have the relevant DBS checks in place.
I enjoy looking for new and varied ways to capture children’s imaginations and am committed to supporting children's development, recognising children as individuals and keeping children safe. I believe in taking the lead from children themselves, exploring their ideas, giving them choices and providing them with resources/activities which follow their individual interests. I encourage and support children through play and ensure that I enhance their learning as they have fun!
