I am an Ofsted registered Childminder with 12 years Teaching Assistance experience. I have a spacious house with a large garden. Outdoor activities include: slide, swing, goal post, sand and water play, playhouse, small trampoline and ball games. Indoor activities include; art and craft, construction, play kitchen, music and movement, songs and rhymes, puzzles, samll world play, shop and much more. I regularly visit the local library, parks, woods, ball-pools and places of interest.
I work with two assistants and together we make sure we offer each child a range of fun activities, every day, in order to help all the children develop and progress. We have a weekly topic and our art and craft activities and story time will link to our topic. We help our older children with their transition into school (books, circle time, helping them to become independant with dressing and toilet visits etc)
I have two small dogs who are used to babies and young childen (access to the dogs is supervised only and parts of the house and garden are dog free. The dogs are not allowed around under 2's). I also have a tortoise that children can feed.
