Hi, my name is Clare and i have been a registered childminder since 2011.
I am approved to look after two children by Ofsted. I have three of my own children, two of whom are in school full time. My baby Katy stays at home with me during the day.
I offer child led care and promote different activities covering the 6 areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
I have a large garden area with a climbing frame, swing for pre-schoolers and various toys. I can offer quiet areas during the day for naps. I drive a Zafira which is business insured for transport and would be happy to do any pre-school runs during the day.
I am not too worried about keeping set hours but i would like a family who i can work with and provide consistency to your children and mine.
My background in childcare prior to childminding is as a foster carer and i have encountered many different children with many different abilities.
I have been trained in many areas from child behaviours to paediatric first aid.
