Hello, I’m Kimberley Phipps, I began Childminding in 2011 whilst living in London, I have returned home to the North West and am living in Daisy Hill, Westhoughton. I have always loved children so a career in childminding seemed a natural choice for me. My primary goal is to contribute positively to a child’s life, whatever that may involve and I see that working WITH parents is the most essential element of childminding. I have completed and passed; Childcare Home-Based Course , Early Years Foundation Stage and Welfare Requirements Course, a Paediatric First Aid Course, I have been inspected by Ofsted and Bolton Council have authorised me to prepare food on my premises for children. childminders. In addition I have been inspected by OFSTED and have been awarded a grade of GOOD (borderline outstanding).
