Hi, my name is Sam and I am a registered childminder in the S10 area. I am a level 3 qualified nursery nurse and have 15 years previous experience working in nursery settings.
I have been childminder for the last few years and care for children under school age. My opening hours are 8 -6 and I can offer term time contracts if needed. I am also registered to provide Funded Early Learning places for 2,3 and 4 year olds.
I live with my partner, my eight year-old son and my cat called Leo. I have a dedicated play room with leads straight on to a large, secure garden. In the play room there is a range of equipment suitable for all aged children including books, toys and educational games. I offer a wide variety of activities such as baking, painting, malleable play, local outings to parks, libraries, museums and playgroups.
I observe all children closely and each child has a development tracker. I plan activities based on each childs interests and stage of development. I provide a mixture of planned activities and free play. Most importantly I want the children in my care to have a fun and safe learning environment.
