About Lakin, Claire

Hi my name is Claire, I live in Poolsbrook with my partner John and 3 children Jake 15, Harper-Mai 2 and Caleb 1. I have been registered as a childminder since December 2014 and I love working with children. No two days are the same! I work alongside my assistant Courtney (who is also my step daughter). She is 17 and studying a Level 2 Apprenticeship in Child Development, and she hopes to be a registered childminder in 2017/2018. I live in a semi detached property and I use four rooms within the house for childminding - the conservatory, the living room, the kitchen and the downstairs bathroom. Most of our time is spent in the conservatory if we are not out and about at different playgroups or parks. The children have a wide range of resources available to them at all times in the conservatory. It is welcoming and bright and has a range of working displays on the walls. Children eat mainly in the living room, as there is more space for the tables and chairs. The downstairs bathroom is convenient for the children, it is equipped with a step to enable children to use the toilet independently, a potty for those not yet confident with the toilet, and a changing mat and nappy bin for the babies, I also don't have the risk of children falling up/down stairs if going to an upstairs bathroom. I am able to drive so I can offer school drop off/collection in any area local to me. If there is anything else you would like to know please don't hesitate to contact me.
