I have over 20 years Childminding experience and hold a Level 4 NVQ in Childcare, Learning and Development a level 6 Diploma in Early Intervention and Family Support.
I hold a compulsory First Aid Certificate and Safeguarding (lead professional) Certificate. I am also qualified level 2 in Food Safety, Health & Safety, Deaf Awareness, Equality and Inclusion and many more....I attend regular local authority workshops to update and refresh my knowledge on changes and updates regarding the early years sector.... a full list of my qualifications are available on request.
I am a member of the PACEY (professional association for childcare and early years, formerly NCMA) and local childrens centre. I have strong admin and management experience which enable me to provide a professional service. When looking after children who's first language is not English, I work closely with parents to offer "first words" in their native or parents native language (eg Polish, Hungarian). Children have their own "home photo books".
I have 2 years experience as a childminder network coordinator within a childrens centre which has enabled me to be trained in areas such as breastfeeding support, domestic violence and safeguarding as a lead professional.
