I work with another registered childminder, Paula Norton and together we are known as TP Toddlers. We were both rated Outstanding by Ofsted in our June 2014 inspection and have recently been nominated for school of the year and we won.
Current paediatric first aid certificate;Specialist safeguarding, Level 3 Diploma in Preschool Practice; Basic Sign language; a little French.
I have a 20year old son and have had 11years' experience working in various childcare settings including birth to 5 year olds in a creche and children's centre, a pre-school and a primary school with children aged 4 to 11 years. I have had personal experience dealing with a bereaved child and parents as well as working with children with special needs. Also caring for children from forces families and when English is an additional language.
We live close to the town centre with easy access to the A34. There is ample parking outside the house. Both Paula and Teresa have their own cars but really enjoy walking to local amenities including parks, river, toddler groups, forest school and indoor/outdoor activity centre.
We provide all your child's requirements including car seats, buggies, nappies, snacks and drinks. All we ask is the provision of a packed lunch and a spare set of clothes.
Paula and I are lifelong friends and have worked together in a professional manner. Throughout our childcare profession, we have seen the benefits of working with a smaller group of children which include homely environment, quality time with both children and parents helping the children to extend their learning and development.
