2 x 0-4 full time spaces
Current paediatric first aid certificate; Generalist safeguarding; Specialist safeguarding; Family Links - Nurturing Programme, Babysday online system. I hold a Level 3 Diploma in children and young people's workforce. Now registered to offer funded spaces for 2, 3, and 4 year olds.
I have three children of my own aged 9, 14 and 2 years and we live in a cul-de-sac in a quiet village with a small garden. We have the use of a 9-seater minibus and make regular trips to local toddler groups including Clanfield, Carterton and Witney. I only use the ground floor of my property for childminding so that my own children have their own space.
I do not have a specific room for childminding as I like the children to think of it as a home from home. The children become part of the family. I will also take little ones on normal day to day trips on occasions, like shopping or visiting with me and use this as a learning activity.
We have two shihtzus called Missy and Maisy. They have a separate area so they are mainly separated from the children.
