Victoria Baker (Victoria's Childminding)

Childminder

I am a childminder in the village of Kedington near Haverhill.

Our family home is well equipped with toys, books and resources to promote children’s wellbeing and development. We have an outdoor area with a play house, ride-ons, slides and soon a water wall! 

My husband and I have 2 boys; a 4-year-old who attends Kedington Primary Academy and a 2-year-old who is at home with me. We also have a 10-year-old sausage dog who likes to laze about in his own dedicated area. I have good links with the local school and pre-school and will be offering drop-off and pick-ups to these.

I have a long-standing passion for providing children with a nurturing and inspiring atmosphere to enable them to learn and grow into confident young people. I enjoy the energy and enthusiasm that children bring, offering a home-from-home environment while following the Early Years Foundation Stage framework to provide early years’ education, and support in all areas of learning and development. 

I have Early Years’ experience working at a preschool and also as a Childminding assistant. I have been a breastfeeding peer supporter, working with babies and parents right from birth and upwards. I have experience of working with people with a sensory impairment, working for many years as a care assistant for adults with learning difficulties, and with children and adults with complex mental health needs. I also have experience with breastfeeding /paced feeding of breast milk, as well as formula feeding, cloth nappies and baby weaning.

Please contact me to discuss how I can meet your childcare needs.
