Ace Chalcroft Childminders

Add to My Shortlist

I am an Ofsted registered childminder, and I have been registered for over 16 years. My last Ofsted inspection I was graded good in all areas.  I am fun, bubbly, kind, caring, flexible and extremely reliable. I offer a fun family environment to all children. We enjoy going to local baby & toddler groups, music groups, creative & messy play, baking, fancy dress, role play and more. We have a secure, fully enclosed rear garden with trampoline, ride on toys, slide and other toys. I also have a quite, air conditioned room for nap time and am happy to provide healthy snacks and meals if required to. I work closely alongside parents, achieving continuity through learning, play and development. On my last inspection from Ofsted, I was awarded a GOOD rating throughout our criteria of working practices and services we provide. We collect from local schools in Thacham and Cold Ash areas. I have completed the Minding Your Own Business course, for childminders which is run by the local council. I  also have the CACHE level 3 in early years and childcare qualification. I am a  member of NCMA. Ive also worked for social services for children with special needs.

New additions to my setting are a large tree house, home corner and large climbing frame, and a mud kitchen. We also grow fruit and vegetables so children learn about where food comes from. please arrange to view my setting and meet myself and my family.
