I am an Ofsted registered Childminder with two girls (5 & 3) and we are looking for someone to join us in our adventures. We love painting, cooking, messy play, dressing up, trains, dinosaurs, music & dancing, gardening, reading/ stories and going to the park, playground, library, stay and plat clubs, scooting and going on play dates amongst other things. I encourage the children to learn through purposeful play (following the EYFS guidelines) and aim to help them grow in confidence and independence at each stage of their development.
We live in a 3 bedroom house with a small garden, located just off Lavender Hill, so we have easy access to both Clapham Common and Battersea Park as well as the Latchmere centre and other local amenities.
I have been childminder for over 2 years and have experience of looking after children of all ages, from babies all the way through to school age+. I became a childminder for several reasons; the most important being that I have always wanted to work with children and once I had my own, I want to take a proactive role in their development and education. This is something I believe in passionately and wish to share with other children too, as an extension of my own family.
Other than the direct experience of bringing up my own children, I have also completed the Wandsworth Council Homebased Care Course, a Paediatric First Aid Course and have been CRB checked and registered with Ofsted.
If you are interested in finding out more, or coming to meet us, please PM me.
