Laura Dewdney, Childminder

Description

I work with my mother, Patricia Dewdney who has been childminding for over 20 years. I am qualified to NVQ level 3 and have worked with children for 16 years - as a playgroup helper, in nurseries and as a childminder. I have also been involved in children's and youth work in my church in the past. We are both first aid trained and regularly attend childcare courses to enhance our knowledge. We feel it is important for children to mix with other children during the week and attend various toddler groups. This is to help the children to learn social skills from an early age. We have an inclusive practice policy and treat all children as individuals and equally regardless of race, culture, gender or abilities. We aim to give children the best possible start and along with 2 cats and a small dog we offer a friendly caring home environment for the children we care for. We provide a variety of enjoyable activities to enhance their learning, working under the Early Years Foundation Stage framework and are fully knowledgeable of how to include this in everyday activities. We feel it is important for children to have the opportunity to play outside everyday and enjoy the fresh air, so we take walks and trips to the park regularly. We have both received "Good" for our last Ofsted inspections.
