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.
