I've been a childminder for many years I live with my two daughters and husband, I've a very clean and tidy house. Children in my setting have access to my garden when needed and have a wide range of toys and activities for them to do daily. I live very close to Westwood Farm school and the local park.

Early Years Private, Voluntary & Independent Settings
When each child begins in my setting I conduct regular observations using EYFS Development Matters to make my assessments, I also undertake 2 year old development check so I can pick up any problems early on, I will discuss with each parent if I have any concerns and listen if they have some too. If a child has SEND I would work together with the child’s parents and offer support where I can.
Daily discussions are held with parents, reviews are carried out every 3 month.
Each child will be supported and encouraged to achieve their goals at their own pace.
Parents are given a detailed diary of what their child has done during their time/day in my setting including feeding, sleeping and toileting, also daily text messages if parents would like.
I use the EYFS framework as a guide, I take into account the child’s age and plan accordingly and encourage all children to take part and get involve, I use observations and assessments to make plans for next steps.
Activities are based around a child’s individual needs and interests, I work closely with parents to support a child’s needs and development.
I look at every child as an individual and provide extra support where needed also seeking advice or extra training.
Observations are made on each child in my setting using Development Mattees and EYFS Framework.
Information is kept in a learning journal and shared with parents if needed.
When planning activities outdoors I will welcome parents feedback, risk assessments will be carried out before outings to ensure each child's requirements are met.
No accessible access for wheelchair users
Children that are new starters will be gradually introduced into my setting with or without a parent for a few hours before starting part/ full time in my care.
I work with parents sharing information and follow professional advice, parents and children are encouraged to give feedback and comment through the use of their daily diaries,development records,emails, whatsapp message or text,and questionnaires relating to the quality of provision.
Should you wish to discuss your childcare needs please contact me on 07983021347 to arrange a visit.
You can use the box provided in your child's daily diary alternatively you can speak with me send emails or text messages
