Hello! My name is Charmaine, and i have worked in childcare for 23 years. Previously working in schools and nurseries before taking the decision to become a childminder 4 years ago.
Most resources are made with natural materials and are at the children's height, so they can freely pick and choose and add to their play.
Weekly we attend playgroups, parks and libraries. We also go on bike rides and walks through the forest.
I very much follow the children's interest so we may also have a cooking session, or jump in muddy puddles (Paddle suits provided)
I have a passion for working with children and also a sound knowledge of childcare practices gained both from academic study and on-the-job experience, which was reflected in my inspection report as i was graded "Outstanding" by Ofsted.
I accept all children between 4 months and 4 years old.
