Beverley Arrowsmith

I am a childminder of 35 years and have 3 grown up children and 2 grandchildren. I am based on Junction Road between Archway and Tufnell Park tube stations. The 390 and 134 buses go past my house so great for for drop off and pick up. I have 1 vacancy starting in January 2022, 1 starting in April after the Easter holidays and 2 starting in September. I am aiming to only offer term time childcare so teachers and uni students are more than welcome to contact me.

I am level 3 qualified and have lots of experience with young children, my youngest being 4 weeks old up to toddlers. This is a lovely age and I have always enjoiyed taking care of this age group in my setting. I am always here to help out and support first time parents and to help with transition to my setting. I like to do a 1 week settling in period as this is a lovely time to bond with your child and for them to feel comfortable being with me and the other children in my care. I will send you photos each day on whatsapp to settle your mind and for you to see that your child is happy and content.

I have lots of resources from books, playdough, painting, colouring, educational toys, musical instruments and jigsaws. I also have a garden with slide, mud kitchen, water play, rockers and a bike or two. We are a diverse setting and enjoy celebrating and reading about different cultures. Breakfast, home made lunches and healthy snacks are included in my fee.

I work from 8.30am to 6pm but can be sligthly flexible with the start time. I work from Monday to Friday but don't offer 1 day only childcare as I find children find it harder to settle. I also don't offer school pick up or drop off.

How will you support my child?

My childminding setting welcomes children with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) and I am committed to working with parents and other professionals to provide good inclusive practice. My Islington Area SENCO provides me with support, advice and training regarding children with SEND. Parents are encouraged to speak to me about the needs of their child in order to assess and plan what is required.
