Carolyn Spraggons

Childminder

I offer Quality Assured childcare provision.

As a member of Suffolk County Council's List of Providers, I am able to offer parents Early Education funded childcare places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. I am a network childminder, offering care long term for siblings and families, and I am also a support childminder who runs a local childminding group.

I have many years experience and try to keep up to date with training and changes, especially with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework which is the learning curriculum for pre-school children.

I am SENCO trained and have updated my makaton, i am happy to work with children who have additional needs or speech and language difficulties.

I offer a variety of activities and fun learning experiences for children of all ages and abilities.

I welcome visits to my setting for new families.

Please contact me to check my availability.

Notes

I currently cater for children with many and varied individual needs, including speech and language difficulties, hypomobility and Mowat Wilson Syndrome. I am happy to learn about new medications if necessary as spaces in my provision allow.  older children before and after school add a positive outcome to my setting where younger children learn from their peers, and older children are given responsibility and positive praise in a busy setting catering for all ages with many and varied needs.

 

currently no spaces available for the foreseeable future as spaces needed for current siblings.
