My setting is a relaxed, happy, safe and stimulating environment, in which I do what I enjoy the most, care for children.
I was inspected by Ofsted in August 2016 and I was given a`Outstanding ` rating.
I am a qualified Nursery Nurse, and my other qualifications include,
Cache level 5 in leadership for health and social care for children and young people
Cache level 3 N V Q in children`s care and learning
Level 3 speach and language support

Paediatric first aid.
The rest of my qualifications including the above qualifications are available for you to see along with my list of previous jobs/experience in childcare . My policies are all in my `welcome pack `.
I have policies including a `Special Needs ` policy which explains that I will do my best to accomodate any additional physical , dietary,religious or any other needs that your child may have , by adapting my setting and routine where possible if necessary and adding resorces , after gaining as much information as possible from you and by doing my own research into your child`s needs .
I have experience in all areas of childcare including: running my own nursery school, running a crèche,and working with children with special needs. For the four years before I became a childminder I worked in a pre-school for as a “senior practitioner/rising 5’s co-ordinator”, preparing children for their start at primary school.
At my setting I plan around each child’s individual needs and interests as well as their level of development. I provide activities and resources covering all areas of learning, including messy play and indoor as well as outdoor play and outings, planned for each child.
I display these plans for parents to see, they include daily plans, weekly plans and long term plans ,including outings, as well as a menu, and a suggestion box for parents/carers ideals, as I value your input into your child’s care, and I would like you to leave your child with me knowing that they are happy and well cared for.
