Childminder in Goose Green offering care Mon-Fri 7:30-6pm
Hello! My name is Pebbles and I am an Ofsted registered childminder living in Goose Green, Wigan.
I live with my Fiancé who I have been with for over 10 years and our gorgeous 1 year old son. We have lived in Goose Green for a year and have worked to make our house a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment. My playroom has been designed with children’s needs and interests at heart, with varied resources to cater to all ages and stages of development. I have been passionate about children’s development and learning since starting my childcare journey in 2008.
I provide care for children aged 0-5 from 7:30am-6pm, following the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. I also offer before and after-school care, with school pick-ups and drop-offs, and holiday care.
I thoroughly enjoy getting involved in children’s play, from sensory to outdoor to role play, intervening where appropriate to enhance learning opportunities and to develop skills. I ensure that there is a good balance of child-led and adult-led activities, following the child’s interests to maximise engagement.
I follow a vegetarian diet, therefore all food provided in my setting will be healthy, nutritional vegetarian meals and snacks. I always ensure that my meals provide a good balance of all food groups.
My belief is that the best way to support a child’s development is to work in partnership with their parents/carers. This is achieved with daily handovers, open communication, and regular updates about your child’s learning. I also love to share ideas about how your child’s development can be reinforced at home.
