I am an Ofsted-registered childminder graded 'good'. I've been childminding for 5 years and enjoy helping the children I look after grow into sociable and active little ones. My two daughters are 15 and 12; they love spending time with the children I look after - they eat meals and play together and this gives my setting a truly home-from-home atmosphere. In term-time we like to go to local playgroups or the library, and especially the parks. In the holidays we venture a bit further afield, to places like the London Transport Museum or Hall Place. At home we do a lot of baking or crafts, dressing up and role-playing or listening to stories and music. My qualifications include Paediatric First Aid and Safeguarding; I also like to add to my CPD by doing courses such as Child Development and Schemas. In addition I have a Food Hygiene Certificate and a clean driving licence.
