Hi, my name is Stacey and I have been an Ofsted registered Childminder for the past 17 years, my eldest daughter Gemma started working with me full time as my assistant in February 2014 and together we provide care for an average of 6 children per day (Aged 0-5 years) and also offer School drop offs & pick ups for children at Upminster Primary School.
We achieved "Outstanding" in our Ofsted inspection in April 2015 and also hold a Quality-Mark Certificate.
We accept Childcare vouchers and also offer parents the Free-EEE (Early education entitlement) for 2, 3 & 4 year olds.
We live in Upminster and our setting comprises of a spacious dedicated playroom full of resources, a kitchen where we enjoy meal times and craft activities and a large child-friendly garden.
We welcome all children into our home whatever their individual needs and our aim is to provide each child with a warm, caring, stimulating environment where they feel happy and safe.
We work in close partnership with parents and share observations, planning, development progress and information about their child's day with them.
The children have plenty of opportunities to participate in fun outings and we visit local toddler groups, Upminster library, local parks, clock-house gardens, nature reserves etc on a daily basis, which offer opportunities to explore and to socialise with other children to improve their social and emotional development as well as their language and communication skills.
I hold certificates in: NVQ Level 3 - Childrens Care, Learning and Development, Paediatric First Aid (Level 3), Quality mark for Early Years, Childrens Behaviour Management, Safeguarding Children (Child protection), Food Safety and Hygiene, Data Protection, Equal Opportunities in Practice, Developing Outdoor Provision, Implementing the Early Years Foundation Stage, Development working with under 2's.
My assistant holds certificates in: NVQ Level 3 Diploma in Early Learning and Childcare, Paediatric First Aid (Level 3), Safeguarding Children (Child Protection), Expectations of Behaviour, Delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage.
