Hi my name is Shery Bloomfield. ***Sorry but I am currently full***
I live in north west Ipswich in a quiet cul de sac.with a park at the end of my road. My son is now 20 and attending University in Ipswich. I enjoy outdoor activities and exploring local places of interest along with cooking and music.
I have previously fostered children and find it extremely rewarding seeing children in my care grow and develop as individuals. It is important to me that children are given every opportunity to enjoy different activities and experiences within my home and out doors.
I enjoy working in partnership with my parents to fulfill the needs of the children I care for. Working together I have found that this results in having a positive impact on the children's development and learning. Using my home and garden I inspire the children’s imagination by creating different environments where they play and learn
In my home your child will be part of a small group (no more than 3 small children) ensuring they experience plenty of individual care and attention and the chance to mix with other children. I have regular contact with other childminders which gives the children the opportunity to socialise and play together in a similar age group.
I implement the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is a structured play based framework used to establish children’s individual learning and development needs for all children aged birth to five.
For example learning about nature in my large mature garden and regular visits exploring local attractions such as children's farms, beaches, adventure playgrounds, museums and parent & toddler groups etc.
I also have the privilege to share information with you through Kinderly. This specialist app gives my parents the opportunity to share and engage in their child's learning journey. I can record photos and observations of your child's daily routine and their every day miracles. By sharing these with you, you gain a deeper understanding of the big and little leaps and this allows me to work closely with you, my parents. Fully EYFS compliant and encrypted to keep your information safe.
