Coronavirus Support

24 May 2021 Update: Setting is temporarily closed

I am able to offer childcare places to children of key workers and for vulnerable children along with non key worker children at present. 

I believe my setting may be a safer environment at this moment in time than perhaps a nursery purely due to smaller numbers of children being cared for in a smaller bubble. 

General Details

I am a loving, mum to my 27 year old daughter and son of 18. I have been childminding for almost 15years, I am a fully insured through PACEY, Ofsted registered childminder. In my most recent Ofsted inspection in November 2015 I was graded Outstanding and my previous inspection in January 2011 I acheived an Outstanding in all 17 areas. I have completed the Suffolk County Council Childminding Pre-Registration course. I hold current certificates in Level 3 Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding and Food Safety Level 2, Food Standards Agency - Hygiene rating Level 5 very good, and I am a member of the Professional association for childcare and early years, (PACEY). Chairperson and vacancy coordinator for Hadleigh Childminding Group .Before the COVID Pandemic I ran a group for local childminders which was held at Cherry Blossom Children’s Centre in East Bergolt every fortnight term term. I have completed an NVQ Level 3 in childcare. I run my own business and follow the EYFS Framework, my written policies may be viewed, on request at any time along with references. My home is warm and welcoming, providing a safe, secure, non-smoking environment for all children within my care. There is easy access and facilities for disabled and designated parking for drop-off/collection for parents/carers to collect their children is usually available. I have a large enclosed rear garden with various outdoor play equipment. I also have a wide range of toys, books, puzzles and games to suit all ages as well as art and craft facilities. My aim is always to provide a warm and friendly home from home atmosphere for your child to learn and play in. I provide stimulating care for children aged 0+ through varied and educational play and activities. I regularly attend local toddler groups, which encourage younger children with their social skills, a very important aspect of their development. Other activities include walks to surrounding parks, duck feeding, visits to the local library, farms, Zoo, Seaside, Hadleigh childminding group meet up once a fortnight during term time at Cherry Blossom childrens centre & visits to other childminders homes, etc. I have a full, clean driving licence and hold business insurance for transporting children in my car. I offer a flexible service as I understand that people’s circumstances and needs vary greatly. I am prepared to work irregular hours as and when required. I offer full and part time care.  I am prepared to go that extra mile and I am fully committed to providing the best care I possibly can for you and your child. References are available on request.
