Childminder. 17 years experience working as a childminder and a total of 24 years experience in the childcare sector. I am an NNEB qualified nursery nurse (Level 3) and have worked in nurseries and as a nanny before registering as a childminder in 2003.
My home has a large, fully enclosed garden. Children have access to the garden every day and we have lots of fun, outdoor learning opportunities.
We also go out every day to various places of interest including the park, the canal to feed the ducks, the farm and to stay and plays. We also have play dates with another local childminder.
I offer free childcare for eligible 2 year olds and also for 3 and 4 years old. I also work with Care2Learn for young parents and can accept childcare vouchers and tax free childcare.
I am a parent myself and as a childminder I have cared for babies from birth.
I have cared for children with special needs including working in a primary school nursery class with children with severe learning difficulties and with children with global development delay.
