I hold public liability insurance and a full clean driving licence.
As a childminder I work using the Early years foundation stage framework (EYFS) and this will be delivered to all children aged from birth to 5 years old.
The EYFS is broken down into four themes -
. A unique child
. Positive relationships
. Enabling environments
. Learning and development
I am able to deliver this through individual and group planning, observations, pictures and completing learning journeys. Your child will be observed and a record will be made of all your childs achievements.
Special occasions -
I will try to celebrate special days throughout the year such as Pancake day, Easter and of course all of the childrens birthdays.
Dietary requirements -
I am happy to discuss menus with parents and cater to children with food allergies and cultural/religious requirements. If your child has any particular favourite dishes or dislikes please let me know.
Drinks and snacks -
There will be fresh drinking water available at all times. I will also offer fruit juice such as apple and orange, as well as milk.
Fresh fruit, vegetable sticks and crackers or breadsticks will be offered as a snack.
I try hard to promote a 'home away from home' making your child's transition to my care as smooth as possible. Your child will always be cared for by me, allowing a sense of familiarity, trust and routine to develop.
