Catherine Dicembre

I am fun, gentle, patient, flexible and committed to facilitating all the vital areas of your child's development. I know every child is unique, so care is tailored to the individual, with an emphasis on promoting emotional growth in the early years.
I am a huge fan of being outdoors, and believe in good old fashioned fresh air and exercise, so will take children out in most weathers.
In the summer months, there are many trips to parks and beaches, sometimes with other childminders.

I know many larger scale settings offer excellent quality childcare, however if you think your child needs something different I can offer a quality 'home-from-home' experience, while still delivering an equally high standard of provision. As required by Ofsted, I work to the EYFS framework and regularly communicate with parents about how their child is progressing.

Registered with Ofsted, I have worked with preschool and school aged children since 2008, first as a Kindermusik teacher, then as a childminder.
I keep updated with changes in practice via regular CPD courses.

I live in Ryarsh with my husband, our two children (aged 11 and 22) and four cats
