Outstanding fully qualified Ofsted registered childminder. I work with my assistants from my family home in Detling and I have been childminding since August 2005. I have worked with children over 33 years as I was a foster carer before becoming a registered childminder.
I provide day care form 0-5 year olds, I also child mind 5-15 year olds before and after school and during school holidays.
Hours of opening are 7.00am – 6.00pm Monday to Thursday , with other times available by arrangement. I provide a school run to Hollingbourne School only.
The children enjoy the outdoor play area in my setting. We like to play outside in all weathers we have artificial grass that is very safe for young children. . We visit parks, woods, play areas, Leeds Castle, Kent Life, Cobtree Manor, Heritage sites and Historical Gardens.
I provide each parent with a secure, password protected online daily diary of their child’s activities so that they can share in their activities and development.
For my first Ofsted inspection in 2005 i was awarded satisfactory. Six years and a lot of hard work later i got graded as OUTSTANDING in 2011 in all 17 aspects. After my most recent Ofsted inspection in December 2015. I was rated as 'Outstanding' again in all the new 4 aspects.
I have a lovely bright playroom with a variety of educational toys.
Every child is unique, and develops in their own time. We will encourage their progress and plan for your child’s next steps within a secure, caring and stimulating environment enhancing their development and helps them to be ready for school and their life beyond.
