Helen Richardson, Childminder

Summary
I have worked with children for 25 years. I enjoy supporting them in their learning and providing a fun environment for them to develop their individualities and social skills.


Description

I have worked in various nurseries as a nursery nurse since 1994 and progressed to taking over as manager of a nursery where I achieved a 'good' with 2 'outstanding' elements from a previously 'unsatisfactory' Ofsted inspection. I have the NNEB diploma in childcare and cache level 4 in learning and development. I am an accredited childminder so offer funded places.

I have 3 daughters who enjoy doing lots of craft activities. I run a continuous provision where the children can access a variety of different toys. Through practical activities such as baking and crafts, children are encouraged to develop their skills & imagination. I attend groups including sports, dance early years storytime and craft time. All the children have their own cup with label on for them to identify their own from their picture then progressing to recognising their own name. The children can access the garden throughout the day. I track each individual childs development and record it in their own personal file.  We attend groups and I work with other childminders sharing different ideas in the topics we cover.

I provide a safe and happy environment where children enjoy a rich experience and develop their own individuality's. I have an enclosed secure garden with playhouse  and outdoor play equipment.
