In the light of the recent pandemic, I ensure that throughout the day I sanitize the house, garden and toys regularly after each use. I also ensure that hand washing is done at regular intervals during the day and children are taught good hygiene standards to keep them safe. This is done in line with the government guide lines.
I have been a registered childminder for over 25 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. These include role play, baking, craft, books, games, nature activities, forest school, 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, learning and development.
