Pauline Pettitt (Ofsted registered childminder)

Childminder

I have been a registered childminder for 25 years, caring for children from birth to 13 years of age. The children are cared for in a safe, friendly and happy environment with a wide range of toys, books and activities, so that the children can learn through play. My garage has  been turned into a playroom specifically for childminding. The garden is fully enclosed with various outside toys and a playhouse;. I have a large bouncy castle with a slide which the children love to bounce on. We have two friendly dogs and one cat. Term time we attend parks, toddler groups, childcare centres and the childminding drop in centre where the children have the chance to develop further social skills. In school holidays we go to the zoo, crabbing, seaside, picnics, and cinemas etc. The children make many craft items and can take part in cooking and gardening. I am a member of  Pacey  and the chairperson of our local Childminding Group. I have a Level 5 foundation degree childcare qualification and have attended many courses and workshops. I recently had an Ofsted inspection and received an overall 'Outstanding' grade in all areas.
