All About Us
Why choose us to look after your child? - We are home based childcarers, teachers and mothers all rolled into one
We are an Ofsted registered childminder, and childminder assistant team based in Reading, Berkshire and provide flexible home-based childcare in a family environment. We are regularly inspected by Ofsted to ensure that we meet all National standards and am following the Early Years Foundation Stage. We work flexibly and organise our days to meet the needs of individual children in our care. We genuinely enjoy spending time with children and are really passionate about all children becoming the best version of themselves!
As childminders, we only look after a small number of children (1 adult to 3 children – aged 5 and under) and as such plan activities and resources in line with their interests. We engage all children that we care for in forest school activities, as we feel that children gain immeasurable benefits from being outdoors.
My home is well equipped, I have a plethora of resources suitable for a range of ages and stages of development and arrange regular themed activities around children's interests.
We provide nutritious, healthy snacks and home-cooked meals, whenever possible we engage the children in helping to prepare meals. We cater for a variety of dietary needs and use organic/Fairtrade produce whenever possible. All meat used our setting is Halal. I hold a clean driving license and my car is fully insured. Car seats are provided for all children in my care.
We have a number of policies and procedures covering topics from safeguarding, confidentiality and working together with parents that we would be happy to go through with you.
With regard to payment, we accept bank transfers, cheques, and cash, tax-free childcare, work-based childcare Vouchers & Local Authority funding for 2, 3 and 4-year-olds.
