My name is Rachael, mum to Adam, 7 and Jonny 4 and wife to Alex.
I hold a Level 3 Cache Award in Home-based Childcare with a real passion for children to learn through play, whilst following the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. I am newly registered with Ofsted, having spent the last 8 months within a lovely nursery setting. I collect from Northdown Primary School, Margate.
My goal is clear - to provide a childcare setting that feels like a home from home for each child. We want our children to be safe, happy and to thrive in an enabling environment.
As well as use of the large living room and kitchen, the children benefit from a dedicated play room and outdoor provision, with resources suitable and adaptable for all ages.
The setting offers the following but the list isn't exhaustive;
*Home corner*Music*Garden*Sensory play*Messy Play*Tuff Spot*Arts and Crafts*Cooking*Walks *Library Trips* Access to Secret Jungle*Climbing Frame*Mud Kitchen* Books*Water Table *Train Tracks* Small World Toys*Fancy Dress*Face Painting*Outdoor Car Table*Puzzles
I offer home cooked food and encourage children to cook with me and try new foods, particularly things we have purchased or grown together.
Registered childminders work in their own homes, caring for babies and children in small groups. They work to the EYFS and are inspected by Ofsted. By choosing to be a member of PACEY, childminders can show their professionalism and commitment to their personal development and training.
