I’m a fully accredited and Ofsted registered Childminder located in the Muscliff area of Bournemouth. I am also a member of PACEY (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) and a Childminder of the Year Award Nominee, 2014. I work full time with my husband, Simon, who has also been DBS (formerly CRB) checked and declared as suitable to work with children by Ofsted.
We enjoy lots of fun activities at home and in the garden and also make the most of our local parks, beaches, libraries and children’s centers.
I have a food hygiene rating of 5 'very good' and provide healthy balanced meals and snacks and actively promote and encourage healthy choices. I’m happy to discuss any special dietary requirements with parents in order to fully accommodate all children in my care.
I have a degree in Childhood and Youth Studies and am Early Years Teacher trained. I regularly attend childcare training, including First Aid and Safeguarding Children and I use my knowledge and experience to provide a warm and welcoming environment for children to learn, develop and have fun in, offering parents full reassurance and peace of mind when returning to work.
My vision is for each child in my care to reach their full potential.
-A commitment to children, their rights, well-being and development
-A commitment to working in partnership with parents in order to provide a personalised and supportive service for themselves and their families
-A commitment to being fully inclusive, providing children with equal opportunities whilst also treating each child as an individual
My Aims and Objectives
I aim to provide an excellent service for the children in my care and their families and aspire to make a positive difference in their lives. I am focused on turning my vision and values into reality and will commit to improving my service through regularly reviewing and assessing my practice.
