Lorna Smith Childminder

I offer a loving, safe and fun environment within which children can try new activities as well as being part of normal family routines.  I offer healthy, nutritious meals and snacks in the dining room and have a room for naps.  I attend regular Quality Forums run by the local authority, which monitors the quality of my service and enables me to access additional training.  I attend toddler groups and visit parks and the library.  We have lots of fun planting outside, playing with water, baking and painting with our hands and feet.  
I have an NVQ level 3 in Childcare, Learning and Development and have achieved Early Years Professional Status.  I was rated 'Good' by Ofsted in November 2019.
