Hello, my name is Karen, I live in Long Eaton with my Husband and our 3 children. I registered with Ofsted in Sept 2017 as a childminder and am available for childcare for children of all ages. I am fully insured and trained in Paediatric First Aid and safeguarding, and health and hygiene level 2. Further training will be undertaken to enable me to provide more support for the children I look after. As I have young children myself keeping a relaxed and safe environment is a priority for me and this will also help the children feel secure and more comfortable in my home setting. I offer a variety of activities at home including Crafts, baking, painting, drawing and colouring, play dough, puzzles and story time. Also including outside play in the good weather including swings, slide's and a play house. In the summer we are looking to include a raised vegetable bed at home to encourage the children to grow and look after their own vegetables that we can eat for our meals. There are local toddler groups and fun sessions available each week as well as local parks, the farm and library and leisure centre. On a weekly basis we currently attend a dance class and Jabberjacks as well as a local playgroup. In school holidays, we will have trips further afield to various locations. Hopefully I will be bringing this together with other local childminders that I know to make it more fun for the children. My setting is open from 7.30am − 5.30pm Monday to Friday and I offer healthy snacks, light lunches and a home cooked evening meal in with my hourly fee. All general trips and toddler groups are also included. I cover Dovedale School for drop off and pick-ups. I am registered to accept funding for 2, 3 and 4 year old children. I accept childcare vouchers.
