Cuddling & Rocking
Dancing & Singing
Tasting & Smelling
Just a few of the important experiences that encourage a childs brain to make new connections, and grow. (Kate Reed)
I offer a warm, caring, home-from-home environment where your child can feel safe and secure. My home is child friendly, meeting OFSTED regulations - inspected every 3 years (or as necessary). I can care for children who attend Clervaux Nursery School, Jarrow Cross (CofE) Primary School, and possibly St. Bedes Nursery School* (please ask).
I keep up to date with new information via "professional" publications - such as:
All of these publications supply a wealth of up-to-date knowledge for me, as a registered childminder, but also support learning / informing children of different topics - they also provide parent guides which I am able to copy and give to parents of children in my care.
I am more than willing to accept payment via work-based voucher schemes.
Whilst your child is in my care, we do many things together. The following are examples:
We look at books together
We sing songs and play music
We go to Parent & Toddler Groups
We go to the Park and local "Farm"
We use "Beat Baby" to interact with
We learn to recognise numbers and letters
We go to the local library to choose books
We go to the shops, and children help to choose purchases
