Joanne Levitt

Childminder, in St Peters Broadstairs.
I care for children from 3 months old to 12 years old.
I take and collect children from Callis Grange Infants and Nursery School and St Peters Junior School.
I enjoy working with children and provide a stimulating and caring environment that gives every individual child the opportunity to develop to their full potential.


I offer a wide range of activities, crafts, baking outings and a home from home for the children. Offering a friendly and stimulating environment for all ages and stages of development , we are close to main bus routes, and offer an extensive range of equipment and lovely outdoor area.


I may be able to offer free child care spaces for 2 year olds 3 to 4 year olds for up to 15 hrs /30hours.


Please feel free to ring for a visit or if you have any questions.


I have no spaces at the moment, but have spaces from September 2019.


We walk to and from local schools and live in a lovely quiet street walking distance from the beach, parks and countryside.

The is a wide range of resources appropriate to support childrens development at all levels, if needed specialist resources can be added to the setting

Teaching Stratgies

I am trained in the Early Years practice and continuously training to keep my knowledge of new developments and further my knowledge.

I use visual resources using British Sign Language, Alphabet , seasons, number ect.

Childminder

Working as a childminder puts me in a good position to ensure that i can tailor activities to ensure that your child gets the most learning from both planned activities and help from routines in the home, such as laying the snack table and tiding toys etc.

 

 

 I am regularly encouraged to complete training, I have completed Autism awareness organised by the childminding Collaboration

If your child is making insufficient progress through a targeted plan, i would discuss with you would need to change and discuss about agencies 

Your consent is require in order for referrals to outside agencies

 

 Your childrens learning journey will be monitored together and can be seen at any time, your childs daily diary can has a progress chart and pages to voice your child's progress and wow moment at home

I pride myslef on my relationship with parents and would discuss possibly doing a workshop or training along side the parents 

 We regularly take trips to the beach and when ever we have new children I revise the health and safely risk assessment to take account of any new conditions that may cause children to be at risk.

 Unfortunately I have a step into my setting and no downstairs bathroom, so access to the building would be difficult but not impossible, this would have to be discussed with he parent / carers 

 Planned visits to the school 

complete progress chart can be given to the parents to take to the childrens new school

we can practice dressing up in the new school uniform and learn all about the school 

Review policies and procedures

regular parents and childminder assessment visits

ongoing training

All children have Settling in sessions, and sometimes a visit to the child at home

Apply for funding under the Disability Access Fund (DAF) and discuss this with the parent how this funding will be used.

Arrangements for assessment for additional funding

 My setting has a open door policy and questionnaires for parents, keeping the setting running smoothly and opening for the parents to help make the setting run  smoothly
