My Service

My Service to you…..

Learning and Development

Whilst your child is in my care i will:

  • Keep a diary for children which can be shared between us.  I will keep you informed of what your child has eaten, achieved, naps taken, information from nursery and anything else i feel  important to share with you.  You can also use this to share any information with me. I have recently joined a online system called baby’s days where you as parents can log on and view there diary on a daily basis in your own time as well as other info regarding your child’s details and development. 
  • I also provide each child with a learning journey which includes observations, pictures,  and comments.  For children under 5 this incorporates the EYFS framework which outlines your childs learning and development.  This ensures they are participating in and learning from suitable activities and experiences specific to their individual stage of development.  I as a registered childminder can then plan and setup appropriate play, for your children. This is also shared through baby’s days.
  • 2 to 3 times a year I may invite you as parents to a coffee morning / evening.  This is a chance to share any relevant information, voice any concerns and hear about how your child’s progressing. I will also send out questionnaires for parents to fill in about my services and for you to voice any opinions you may have or ideas. Working in partnership with parents is very important to me.
