Hello, my names Amber I am an Ofsted registered childminder graded 'good' living in Burnham-On-Sea with my husband and three girls aged 11, 7 and 2 years old. We also have a budgie, a cat, a rabbit and a chicken odd combination I know. I have always worked with children since leaving school and am now 30 years old so I have a lot of experience. I have had many roles in nursery and pre-school/school settings. I decided to become a registered childminder when I had my second child and came face to face with the struggles of being a working parent and decided to combine what I have always done with motherhood 5 years later I am still here :) and am loving it. I love that no two days are the same when working alongside children and their families, and I love how the little ones become part of my extended ever growing family and how friendships have developed between myself and parents of these children. When I started childminding I got told "childminding is a way of life not just a career" this is very much true as I offer a home from home environment and welcome families in as if they were my own. I think the EYFS can be delivered anywhere as the most important educational thing in the room is not the room/toys itself but the teacher and I encourage them all to reach the 7 areas of learning through play.
I have decided on you as my childminder what's next?
After initial phone call/email/message I arrange a visit for parent/carer and child to attend my setting out of working hours (to Safeguard other children in my care) to meet and see if I am the setting for you.
If you message to say you have decided that you would like your child to attend I will send over all relevant policies/procedures via email then we arrange an evening visit to sign contracts and agreements.
I offer 2 hours of free settling in care for your child to attend (this is a trial period between child/parents and myself before contracts are finalised) Then your child is able to start :)
