Until 2009 I worked in Laboratory Management in the Environmental Analysis industry. I took voluntary redundancy when my third child was born as I knew I wanted a career change. I loved spending more time with my children and realised what a rewarding job caring for children could be. I now love my job. Every day is so rewarding, unpredictable and challenging (I wish I had changed careers years ago!).
My aim is to provide a fun, friendly and stimulating environment that all children will thrive in. I work alongside you as parents to ensure that your child reaches their full potential. I ensure all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) are covered for those in the Early Years age range.
I currently work Tuesday - Friday, 7.30 am - 5.30 pm. If you require childcare outside these hours please contact me to discuss your needs. I can offer term-time only contracts with no fees during school holidays.
I have no 'hidden charges'. My fees include all meals & snacks and all trips & outings.
I am Quality Assured as part of the Bradford Childminding Network so I can offer Early Education Funding (EEF) which provides 15 hours of free childcare for all children aged 3 years and over who are not in full time education (and for some 2 year olds who qualify). In September 2017 this will be increased to 30 hours of free childcare which can be split between settings (eg. school nursery & myself). I also accept all Childcare Vouchers.
I can provide full-time or part-time care, before & after school care (Oakworth Primary), school runs, emergency care and holiday care.
I have public liability insurance and my 7 seater car is insured for business use.
