Hi, Im Debbie, OFSTED registered childminder since may 2018. I live in Gorton near Tesco with my partner who is also DBS checked. We have a lovely 2yr old little girl.
I have 15yrs of childcare experience in early years settings including managements. I am qualified level 5 Foundation Degree in Early Years and childhood studies at Bolton University.
In my experience my key skills are: committed to safeguarding, organised, provide high quality care and teaching, EYFS skilled, great teaching skills recognised and highly praised by Ofsted for effective teaching especially next steps and readiness for school including potty training and fussy eaters.
I am trained in signs and symbols and have the pack to support childrens learning. I have a long track record of having great impacts on the lives of children and their families. I will create a warm safe and secure environment for children to develop, learn and build confidence.
Everyday my weekly activities incude going out and being active, Sports class, story time, forest school, play centres, farms, museums, stay n play groups, local parks.
We have both rooms downstairs for children to use and a nice enclosed secure garden area both with equipment for all ages. If I need to provide more to suit a childs interest and needs I will adapt and provide for them to help them develop and thrive
I provide nutritious meals, healthy snacks, I will encourage the children to make healthy choices and I include the children in helping prepare their meals to support self-help skills.
