My name is Amber and I am an Ofsted registered childminder with a GOOD rating. I live in Burghfield common with my partner and two sons. I completed my initial training with PACEY and my membership allows me to refresh my skills with regular training and legislation updates. My home is within walking distance of the local park and shops and I also regularly visit soft play, messy play, country parks, farms and more! I aim to provide an inclusive, creative and homely environment where every child feels welcome and safe. I believe that working in close partnership with parents to create a tailored approach for each child will provide them with the stable environment they need to flourish in my care.

Early Years Private, Voluntary & Independent Settings
Children are monitored by myself and tracked against the early years outcomes using an online system, this along with general observation in the setting would enable me to flag concerns with the parent/carers and signpost them to the appropriate professionals.
An online daily diary is completed, as well as a handover at drop off and pick up, along with a learning journey to show long term progress
A tracking system is completed for each EYFS child to track their development in the 7 stages of learning, aiming towards their next steps whatever level they may be at.
Working with parents/carers and other professionals to support children towards their goals and provide consistency wherever possible.
Consistent care and CPD in specific areas where necessary
using an online tracking system that can be accessed and added to at home.
risk assessments are carried put before all trips, this would include access and equipment assessments if needed.
There are steps into my home and a multi-level garden with no ramps so is not wheelchair friendly
The aim of my care for pre-school children are to get them 'school ready' by tracking their development for us to reach their EYFS goals to assist in their transition.
i regularly ask parents and carers to complete feedback forms and questionnaires.
I ask for questionnaires and feedback forms to be completed regularly and also have a compliments and complaints section on my online application.
