About Me

Learn a bit more about my background and how I work

Beth’s Childminding has been happily supplying loving, quality childcare for four years.

My Journey

As an experienced Mother of two who was very used to using childcare when my two children were younger, I was surprised to find a gap in the market when I had my third child much later. My third child was a little tricker than my first two with various health problems. As a single parent, I needed to work and I simply couldn’t find the home from home, loving environment that I was looking for.

I therefore decided that I would supply the childcare I so desperately wanted. I retrained and grew. I opened my mind, heart and home to all my little friends.

Together We Learn

Together we learn through play and fun experiences. We are indeed small but perfectly formed so make very important attachments that help the children to feel loved and secure whilst they are here.

Our days are filled with various groups, trips out and activities which fully support the Early Years Foundation Stage. And most importantly lots of smiles, love and laughter xx

I am now lucky enough to collaborate with another Childminder with a teaching background, who runs Compass Childcare. Together we Co-Mind one to two days a week and can act as emergency care if the situation ever arose. (Contact details available upon request)

How I Observe Your Child

Whilst in my care your child will be offered a wealth of activities and experiences that fully support the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) This is how the Government and Early Years Professionals describe the time in your child’s life between the ages of birth and 5.

One of the purposes of this is to get them school ready and meet all their Early Learning Goals (ELG) We are required to observe and monitor the 7 areas of learning and share this information with you.The 7 areas of learning are broken into two sections, the first being the Prime areas of learning and these lay the foundations for future development.

To share your child’s learning journey I use the electronic nursery book Kinderly. You will be given a secure login. With this you can view pictures, observations and achievements. Full guidance on using Kinderly will be offered.  Information on Kinderly can be found here https://kinderly.co.uk/why/

I am a full member of PACEY (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) details of which can be found here https://www.pacey.org.uk/
