Registered Childminder

in Stevenage

About My Setting: 

 

Hi! My name is Amy and I believe learning through play is imperative to a child's learning and development.

 

I am a registered childminder in the Pin Green area of Stevenage. I live in a 3 bedroom terraced house with my partner Jamil and our two daughters Ameera who is 14 and Lamisa who is 11.

I use my ground floor for childminding which consists of a large kitchen/diner, lounge and a downstairs toilet. babies may sleep in a cot upstairs for nap times but this will be discussed with parents beforehand. We have an enclosed garden with a large trampoline and other play equipment.

 

  • Ofsted Registered Childminder
  • Professional membership and insured with PACEY (the professional association for childcare and early years)
  • DBS certified including my partner
  • Paediatric first aid trained 
  • Food safety trained 
  • I use Kinderly to share information with parents 

 

I have many years of experience and training.  Recent completed training includes:

  • CACHE level 3 award in home based childcare 
  • Paediatric 1st Aid 
  • Paediatric anaphylaxis and epi pen 
  • Food safety in catering level 2 
  • Adult First Aid
  • Safeguarding children 
  • Delivering the EYFS
  • Supporting children with speech language and communication needs
  • Schemas
  • Managing diversity 

 

I provide a home from home setting for children of all ages. For children ages 0-5 I follow the EYFS framework.  See Activities and EYFS tab for more information.  

 

I also offer a Before and After school and Holiday Club for older children.  

 

My career up to now has centred around the management of homes for adults with mental health issues and learning disabilities. This has enabled me to be patient, emphatic and caring. 

Children have always been my passion though and as I am now turning the big 40 I have decided to take the plunge and follow my dream into childcare.  

 

I will work extremely hard to ensure I provide your children with the tools needed to be happy, confident young people and to ensure they are school ready. 

 

I put great importance in working together with parents. I will let parents know our current theme and how we can use what we are doing in my setting at home and vice versa. 

I will provide daily journals detailng what we have been up to and quarterly newsletters about all the fun we have had. 

I use an app called Kinderly to confidentially share information with parents. you can log in at any time to see what your children have been up to and share photos between each other (with parents consent). 

 

I have settling in periods and encourage parents to come and spend time at my setting if they want to. 

I will want to get to know as much information as possible about your child in order to provide the best care for them.
