I have been working with young children for the past 15 years, previously at local pre-school(3 years) and currently an Ofsted Registered childminder. I have knowledge of the Early Years foundation stage, learning through play and birth to three matters. I have a good understanding of children’s individual needs and the stages of development and the Early Years Foundation Stage. I provide a fun, interesting and stimulating environment for all children aged 0-12 years. We have a safe, large enclosed and inviting garden with lots of outside equipment and a playing field near by. We also go for walks, picnics and other outings according to the weather and the time of year, as well as attending local childminding groups, music group and many other local groups. Indoor play consists of lots of stimulating activities, including crafts, cooking offering a large range of toys to suit different ages and promote, physical, social, emotional, communication and intellectual well being. I provide a healthy snack both in the morning and afternoon. I can also collect/ drop off at Sir Robert Hitchams Primary school, Framlingham. All my policies are currently in place and these are available on request. I am registered with Ofsted (and achieved Outstanding in a recent inspection) and keep all policies and procedures and personal training up to date by attending courses. I now have a large cabin in the garden which is used every day, making most use of outside space .
