I live in Redcar with my husband and two children. My house is child friendly, safe and secure. I have experience in childcare and my own children since I was 17. I have completed various relevant qualifications and gained valuable experience in different settings. After using a childminder with my daughter and wanting to combine being a mother and childcare professional, I aim to provided home from home care, safety and fun activities.
I encourage children to become independent and explore with supervision as needed. Each child is treated individually and valued for their own interests, which I hope to incorporate in planning and activities.
I also have dogs and rabbits and our pets are part of my family. Our dogs are trained for flyball and I have qualified for Crufts. Although tey are part of our home unit, they have a seperate room inside and outside space. Even though they have grown up with my children, I aim to keep dogs and childminding seperate unless otherwise discussed. I find animals help children develop and learn responsibility.
I aim to stimulate childrens development through fun inside and outside and treat all children the same as my own. As a parent myself I hope to be approachable and work alongside parents.
