I have been childminding for nearly ten years from my own home in St Peters, Broadstairs. I have three of my own children. I try very hard to meet the needs of all children and their families, I understand the importance of providing excellent childcare in a home from home environment where children are cared for like members of my own family and as a working parent myself, I try to make things as easy as possible for families by being flexible in all areas, including, start and finishing times, additional childcare when needed, dropping off and collecting from school, help with homework if needed, amongst other requests. I work mainly from a large purpose built playroom within the grounds off my home but do take the children out on daytrips to the beach (where we own a beach hut), local animal centres, park, library, museums etc.

Special Needs Support
How will the setting monitor my child's progress and how will I be involved in this?
I use a service called Kinderly in association with Pacey (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years). Once parents are added to this service you can view the progress your child makes with your own secure login, daily diaries, development reports and photos are all on this service.
How accessible is the building for children with mobility difficulties / wheelchair users?
Unfortunately my setting is not wheelchair accessible due to width restraints and steps.
How will you support my child's transition to a new setting or school?
I attend numerous activities and events at the local school with the preschoolers, making it a familiar environment, children follow the Early Years Curriculum which then continues in Reception. Children are supported and encouraged to be independent in preparation for school.
