About me: I am an Accredited Childminder, a Bucks Buddy and part of the Quality First Come Cluster Network. I live in the Downley area. I have been married for 14 years and I have 3 children. I have been a childminder for the last 14 years and its been the best job I have ever had. I have recently (May 2013), completed my BA (Hons) Practice Development in Working with Children and Young People. I also have a Degree in Working with Children and Young People. Additionally, I offer the Early Education Funding (EEF) for 2, 3 and 4 year olds, and I work closely with the PACY (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) or NCMA (National Childminding Association), my local children centres and sure start.

My ultimate goal as a childminder is to maximise children's outcome by providing a service which will support the individual needs of every child in my setting. This will enable the children achieve the Five Every Child matters: Change for Children (2003) outcomes of staying safe, being healthy, enjoying and achieving, making a positive contribution and achieving economic well being. I also aim to work closely in partnership with parent through effective communication in order to meet the individual needs of their child and the family. I consistently reflect on my practices to ensure that my setting delivers a service that is able to meet with the ever changing demand and requirement of the child, the parents and the community.
