I offer friendly, caring, patient, fun and dedicated care for your little ones. I am a fully OFSTED registered childminder and Primary School Teacher with over 12 years experience in Early Years and Primary education. I have a BEd Degree, I'm an active member of PACEY, fully insured and have a full driving license.
I am a new mum and now offer childminding and private tuition to local families. My gorgeous son Thomas (15 months old) and I look forward to welcoming your little ones into our home for lots of fun!
I deliver a very creative Early Years curriculum to all children under the age of 5 with a Cafè theme to encourage positive healthy eating, manners, knowledge of a huge variety of foods whilst developing their fine motor skills through cooking. I deliver engaging, motivating and creative learning experiences, differentiated for all abilities and aged children in my care. I provide all families with learning journals of your child’s developments during their time with me. I strive to provide excellent assessment feedback as being a parent myself, those milestones are precious.
In keeping with the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, I provide many different indoor and outdoor activities such as; PE (Funs-Fundamental skills), sensory play, drama, puppets, den building, bouncy castle fun, singing & dancing, dressing up, arts & crafts, story time, music, sand and water play and free play.
My groups with my son included to adult/child ratios, ensuring high quality care at all times as well as encouraging friendly social skills. Should the number of children increase, an additional adult will always be present for extra support.
The children and I enjoy Katherine Park which is right on my doorstep and we attend local playgroups, community childminding group events and activities in Corsham and we love wildlife bug walks!
We use a variety of ways to communicate and share all the fun things we do with our families, such as, daily diaries, Learning Journal Scrapbooks, this website with BLOG for updates, Facebook (both public and private pages depending on what content is shared) and we now also use SeeSaw as our platform for our online learning journeys which has excellent facilities to enable great communication between us and parents/wider family members.*
For more in depth learning support, I offer private one to one tutoring lessons outside of my childminding hours for children aged 5 to 16.
*I operate strict policies and procedures for anything online. Please refer to my policies below for extra information.
If you're interested in my setting as a potential home from home for your little ones, I look forward to hearing from you.
