I am a childminder of 24 years and before having my own family I was a nurse at the Sick Children's hospital so I have been around children all my working life.
I work with my husband who is also a childminder, he is retired after 34 years in the police force. We have a large secure garden for outdoor play and spend a lot of time out there in the summer. We have a 7 seater car and a 4x4 for the winter months, both are fitted with all required safety equipment which we use for trips and school pickups.
We have 1 large cat and 1 medium size dogs.
I have lots of experience in childcare including teaching childcare, I have been an NVQ Childcare Assessor and my NVQ 3 in Education & Childcare course included extra units relating to the care of babies & self-management.
Child protection, First aid for children, food hygiene and speech development understanding course's have been completed.
I am a member of the National Childminder Association. There are opportunities for the children to socialise with other children through my links with other local childminders. I am able to provide a very flexible approach to any childminding requirements you need.
