Benefits of a childminder.

  • Your child will be one of a small group and will have plenty of individual attention.
  • Many childminders offer a school drop-off and pick-up service for parents. They can also provide childcare during the school holidays.
  • Registered childminders work in their own homes meaning that your children can enjoy real-life learning experiences like cooking, shopping, gardening, mealtimes and outings to the park and library.
  • Childminders are regularly inspected by Ofsted and are expected to provide high quality childcare. They receive the same core training as other childcare professionals.

About Me

My name is Nicola. I am a newly registered Childminder although I have been qualified as a Nursery Nurse since 1999 when I completed my Diploma in Nursery Nursing (NNEB). Since then I have worked in a variety of settings , working as a Nursery Nurse and a Nanny. I have worked with children from birth to 8 years, I also have experience in caring for children with special educational needs.

I am married and have two children of my own, a boy who is 6 years old and a girl who is 1. We live in a lovely house with a secure enclosed garden .

Myself and my husband both have an enhanced DBS checks and I have also received training in safeguarding children and paediatric first aid.

If a child is sick and cannot attend my setting (please see my illness and infectious diseases policy) then the normal full rate will be charged.

 

Late Payment

For each day after payment is due there will be a £10 charge and if after 14 days payment has not been received then I will cease to provide care for the child on register until outstanding fees have been paid.

 

Early drop offs and Late Collection Charge

I insist that parents call if they are going to be late so I can confirm if I am able to keep the child or they will need to call another authorised person to collect due to numbers or finishing time. If a child is dropped off and collected before and after the contracted hours then there will be a charge of the hourly rate for every 15 minutes they are early or collected late.
