My name is Jen, I have been an Ofsted registered childminder since 2003, I’m in my thirties and married with three children. We enjoy spending time as a family and taking part in activities together at the weekends, such as going out for lunch/dinner, visiting the cinema and spending time at home cooking, baking or having movie nights together. The children and I also enjoy the activities that I undertake during my working week as a childminder. These include; visiting the cinema, parks, drop in’s, soft play areas, messy play, sensory play, baking and growing our own vegetables, as I have a vegetable patch specificaly for the children, as well as much more. I have been actively childminding for twelve plus years. In this time I have completed my NVQ3 in Childcare, Safeguarding, First Aid, Child Protection as well other training courses. I had my Ofsted inspection in March 2013 and I was given the award of outstanding. In my twelve years of childminding the longest period of child care that I provided for a child was 10 years, from the age of 14 months to 11 years. I have always had good relationships with all of my children as well as the parents. I have many references to support this which are available upon request and some can also be viewed on here.

 

Jen started childminding my child  April 2007 – September 2017 when she moved on to secondary school. Jen is was my child second childminder and my child was constantly upset at the prevues childminders. However as soon as we started using Jen, my child settled in very quickly and soon became a happy and content child, in stark contrast to my child’s previous behaviour. Jen provides an exciting and stimulating environment for both play and learning, while provide clear behavioural boundaries. I believe this has lead to my child having both love and respect for Jen as she does her parents.

My daughter started with Jen in January 2015 following and difficult period with a different provider, we were nervous but Jen gave us the confidence from day one and the communication has been excellent. Our Daughter has enjoyed very visit to Jen’s and always looks forward to the next time. As parents we both work full time, it can be difficult not being with her but we have always been 100% confident that she is well cared for and safe. Our daughters knowledge and confidence has growth immensely and she loves to come home and talk about her days activities, as there is always something for them to do, in and out of the setting; which she enjoys.
