I have been a registered childminder since 1998 working from the above address. As a result I have cared for a lot of the children who live in the surrounding area, and know a lot of the local families
I am married with 2 grown up children, both now working and living in Jersey.
I believe that the early years of a child’s life are the most formative. They are like little sponges and given the right opportunities will absorb a massive amount of information, creating a sound foundation for further education and their future. I believe children only thrive and develop their full potential if they are happy, so their happiness and safety is paramount to me.
I provide a loving and happy family home. There is plenty of room for fun and games and a safe enclosed garden. I also have spare ground floor bedrooms in case any children need a nap. I provide all equipment, including high chairs, cots, pushchairs, car seats and of course masses of toys for both indoor and outdoors.
I like to get the children out at some point nearly every day, we visit various playgroups, play areas, parks, beaches, the library and use lots of the local walks. Depending on numbers I also sometimes take them swimming. I run the Friday Fun Play Group at communicare and many of the children I have cared for have enjoyed attending it over the years.
I am as flexible as possible, always trying to accommodate parent’s routines and I’m happy to adapt to any feeding requests parents have.
I can provide full time, part time all year round and term time care. I often care for children for part of the week, while grandparents or family take them for the remainder of the week, thus reducing the cost for parents. As I rarely take more than 2 children per day I nearly always have space to offer parents.
I am fully insured and hold certificates in Quality care in childminding, health and Safe Environment, Child Protection, HIV & Aids Awareness Training, Foundation Stage training, Speech and Language, Outdoors -the place where children want to be, certificate for promoting emotional resilience in children, Schemas learning and development, behaviour management and I update my training every year.
I welcome enquiries, please give me a call if you would like further information.
Thankyou for taking the time to read this
