Lindylou's Childcare, based in Littleover. Mature, experienced childcare in a home setting.
| I am a mature Ofsted registered child care provider living in Littleover in Derby and I have been a special needs teacher, a nanny, a playgroup supervisor, a Sunday school teacher, an approved foster carer and an adoptive parent. I also used to be a child minder years ago for over ten years. I re-registered as a child minder three years ago, because I have a grandson who has shown me how to fall in love with small children all over again! I have a grading of "good" in all areas from Ofsted. I left the teaching profession and now work in adult education and I also assess other child care providers in their setting and lecture in the evenings, I also have my own therapy business. I really enjoy working from my own home and being my own boss. My child care business is called "Lindylou's Childcare" and is all about safeguarding, caring for and educating young children. I have full insurance, First Aid and food hygiene certificates as well as DBS certificates. I also have numerous other certificates and qualifications and you can check all these along with my policies and my setting when you come and visit. I have a dedicated playroom although children play and eat and engage in activity throughout the whole of the downstairs accommodation including kitchen, a secure garden, a gated decking area and a dining room and we have an additional bathroom downstairs. I can cater for children 0 -8 years plus dropping and collecting from local schools/nurseries/playgroups if required. We are pet friendly. I have fish, I keep a couple of hens, and I do have a dog, a very friendly German shepherd, but I have policies around that, and never leave dogs and children alone, even though my dog is very tolerant. Childminding offers a home environment, we are not a nursery, although we are well resourced and equipped and follow the same codes and guidelines.

Nuturing, kind and reliable childminder located in rural area in Draycott
| Hello! My name is Kelly and I am 36 years old and work as a childminder in Draycott. I have a large indoor and outdoor play area for the children to explore and play. I also work with another childminder at my house twice a week so the children can expand their friendship group, build relationships and have fun. I plan age appropriate activities and crafts based on themes, seasons and most importantly a childs interests. If your child is under school age I provide a diary of your childs daily adventures with me. I also follow the EYFS providing quarterly updates of your childs progess. We are an animal household and at the house we have a small terrier and two old horses that I have had since I was eight years old ?. The children only have supervised access to the animals and are not allowed into the field with the horses. Our household is fully DBS checked and subscribed to the update service. I have been working as a childminder since June 2016 and I love my job. I try my hardest to make your child feel like its a home from home and that they are excited to arrive and stay and most importantly they feel loved. There are plenty of cuddles here and I provide a nuturing environment. I have worked as a nanny before for a short while but the best experience I can offer is being a mum myself. I have two daughters born in 2016 and 2014 who are the polar opposite of each other. Ive got an easy child and one that never sleeps and is very adventurous! They have taught me every child is completely different and it takes love, patience and understanding to learn how to help a child grow and develop. If you are interested in bringing your child here I have a FB page so you can see what we get up. Please message me for the link. Thank you!
