My name is Semana and I am an Ofsted registered childminder catering for the Earlsfield area. I have one son and have plenty of hands on experience of raising a child. My childminding experience has given me valuable insight into the developmental stages babies and toddlers go through and the different care and planning needed to encourage growth. For children in the early years, the EarlyYears Foundation Stage is used to plan activities through observation and assessment to meet children’s individual needs and plan for the next steps in their learning and development. I consider myself to provide high quality childcare within a happy, nurturing, safe and stimulating home environment offering inclusive, well planned, resourced, challenging and engaging play opportunities for all children to develop positive relationships and to reach their full potential.
