About me: Hi I'm a Quality Assured Childminder, and have been registered since 2007. I have 3 grown up children aged 29, 27 and 22. The eldest two have finished university and now have their own homes the youngest is living away, during term time, at Durham University. My husband is a self-employed carpenter and fully supports me with my childminding career. My childminding setting is a self-contained annex to the side of my house. It comprises of a messy playroom, a carpeted room, a bathroom, toilet and kitchen. Both playrooms are fitted with shelves full of accessible educational toys and games. The messy playroom is perfect for art and craft activities and has a home corner for role-play games and a computer corner where children can learn and improve ICT skills. To the rear of the house there is a large secure garden, grassed with flower boarders and a large paved patio where children can enjoy outside mark making with chalk or paint brushes with water. There are climbing frames, slides, swings and a play house. There is a sand pit, water table and a paddling pool. I have trikes, pushchairs and a tractor, a tunnel and a double beam climbing bench. Children are involved in planting bulbs and seeds. At the front of the house is a double width drive for off road parking ensuring drop off and pick up times are safe. The house is situated perfectly for commuters, close to mainline stations and bus routes.
