My name is Amie and I am a registered childminder, I have 17 years childcare experience working with children from 3 months upto 11 years, I also have new born experience from having my own little girl.
I hold a level 5 Foundation degree, working with Children, Young People and Families along with a level 3 Diploma in Childcare and Education.
I am first aid trained and have completed a number of courses including safeguarding.
I live with my husband who is DBS checked, our little girl who was born in 2018 and our friendly black Labrador.
I understand how difficult it is for parents to leave their child with a childminder and return to work. I will work with you to ensure your child settles in quickly and that you are happy with the care that I provide. I live in a quiet area with easy access to local parks, toddler groups and nature walks. I aim to provide a stimulating environment and strongly believe that children learn best through play and exploring the world around them. All children have access to a variety of fun, age appropriate toys and activities that they are able to access themselves along with having the opportunity to engage in planned activities such as messy play and outings.
I follow the early years foundation stage to track your child's development and will work closely with you the parent to ensure all your child's needs are met. I use Babys days; this is an online portal used to liaise with parents and log all information about your child. On the app you are able to access all aspects of your child's journey with me, including daily diaries, photos and learning journey.
I offer nutritious home cooked meals and will meet any dietary requirements.
