I currently have one full-time vacancy available for hours between 7.30am and 6pm, Monday to Friday. Children may be 0 - 5 years.
My fees are £5.50 per hour. This includes outings and activities, morning snack, lunch and afternoon snack.
Outings and Activities
We attend five toddler groups every week. One of these is the local childminding group. The children are able to access a wide range of play equipment and experience many learning opportunities thus developing their emotional, social and intellectual capabilities.
We work towards the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The EYFS is part of the government's ten year strategy 'Choice for Parents, the Best Start for Children' and the Childcare Act 2006. Further learning opportunities are provided so your Child's personal development is encouraged and enhanced through a range of stimulating activities. The EYFS is a single quality framework, which integrates care and education, for children from birth to five years old. The main aim is to help young children to achieve the five Every Child Matters outcomes to:
- Be healthy
- Stay safe
- Enjoy and achieve
- Make a positive contribution
- Achieve economic well-being
We regularly visit local parks and children's gyms. The children are provided with activities and challenges which develop their physical capabilities. Sited within Staines Park is our local resource centre. Here we can access a variety of craft materials for use within the setting. I am able to plan craft activities to further develop their imagination and creativity.
During the school holidays, when these groups are closed, we enjoy lots of days out together.
