Tara Grainger

CHILDMINDER. I am a qualified and experienced primary teacher and have worked in education for more than 15 years, encouraging and motivating young people. I've trained student teachers and have a robust understanding of the Early Years requirements to ensure children are ready for school.  I am also very relaxed, artistic and caring. I take children out every day to groups, stay and play, parks, swimming, museums, Hamstead Heath, farms, libraries and galleries. I have my own small children and aim for a home from home environment with the advantage of a 1-1 teacher. Can accept childcare vouchers.

Local Offer

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.
