Leyla Mary Manley

My name is Leyla and I am an Ofsted registered childminder in River, Dover in a spacious 4 bedroom house with a large garden. I live with my Husband Jake, our two children Zach (age 9), Oliver (age 5) and our small dog Milly. I have a BA (Hons) degree in Primary Education and have been a teacher for 7 years. I have taught year 2, year 1 and with the last 3 years in reception. I have decided to make a change to my career to spend more time with my own family whilst still using my expertise and passion of working with children.

I fully understand the needs and importance of high quality childcare having used it myself for the past 9 years. I will create a safe, clean, welcoming and fun home from home environment for your child. It is of upmost importance to be able to give your children my time to develop their learning. I have extremely good knowledge of the seven areas of the Early Years Curriculum and will tailor activities and resources to your children’s interests and needs as well as working in partnership with you. I will also be doing wrap around childcare with a school drop off and pick up at River Primary School.

Our house has a dedicated playroom set up to promote independence and accessibility to all children. Children will also have supervised access to the kitchen for meal times and cooking activities. There will also be a second room available, if needed, along with a downstairs toilet. We are lucky enough to have a large grassed garden available to use all year round and the house is equipped with all the necessary safety adaptions for young children. We will also spend time visiting our local area including parks, toddler groups and the woods. I have a DBS check (so does my Husband), paediatric first aid, health and hygiene, fire awareness along with courses on developing language, physical development as well as my degree where I specialised in Early Years.
