Setting is open to offer childcare places to children of key workers and for vulnerable children. Closed Bank Holidays
i know that at this very difficult time parents of very young children are worried about sending children to childminding or nursery settings. You wonder if those places outside the home is safe. At Little Monsters you can be certain that it is. All regularly touched surfaces are wiped down regularly and at the end of every day all the toys used are cleaned so they can be safely used again. You should know that early years settings are exempt from the constant use of face masks. And the 2 meter rule also doesn’t apply you can’t give cuddles, feed bottles or change nappies from 2 meters away. Below is a little about me if you do have any questions then please do get in touch.
Thank you for looking at my profile, I am Stuart a childminder based at Brampton 5 miles outside of beccles just off the A145 that heads towards Ipswich.
I have been childminding for 15 years, and I am proud to be qualified to level 6 having my BA in Early Years and am working towards my BA honours.
I am also very proud to be one of the few male childminders in suffolk that works independently, as well as being the first childminder in suffolk to offer a place to a disabled child and was honoured to take part in the newspaper article surrounding this.
Being male, I am often sort out by single mums looking for a positive role model for their children, and I work at all times with all parents to provide the best care for their children.
The last OFsted inspector stated
"Parents speak highly of the childminder. They say he has a 'wonderful way' with
children and is very supportive. They appreciate his advice around child development
and seek this when required."
The inspector also state that:
"The childminder notices any areas where children are
working below age-expected milestones and helps them to catch up with their peers. He
shows a detailed understanding of his role in supporting children who have special
educational needs and/or disabilities. The childminder is proactive in helping children and
their parents to obtain professional support and advice, when required."
During the Covid-19 Pandemic I have been supplying chidcare to Key Workers and to my knowledge there has been no cases of the disease in my setting.
As part of my response to the pandemic and my efforts to stop it reaching us at Little Monsters at this time I am taking children who will be coming to setting only until September in line with government guidelines designed to stop the spread of the infection. There are no longer any towels and flannels in my setting they have been replaced by paper towels the most efficient way to keep all bugs at bay.
As from September I will be looking to provide parents and carers with dinner time collections from nurseries and preschools from within 10 miles of my location at Brampton. If this is a service you would like then please do get in touch I am also willing to consider collecting children from home for parents who do not drive this would need to fit in around school runs.
I am always willing to answer any questions you may have about my service so please do ask there is no such thing as a silly question, if you need to know then please ask away
