Home from Home is a before/after school club and school holiday childcare service.
As a parent of two graduate sons, and two stepchildren at college I have known the trials and tribulations of being a modern working mum.
Home from Home is a before/after school and school holiday childcare service that was set up knowing there were no suitable out of school high standard facilities of childcare for school age children in the local area. As a professional and a mum I appreciate the importance of knowing your children are well cared for while you are at work. With this in mind I offer the parents peace of mind that their children are not just in safe hands but also in a nurturing environment where your child's development is my highest priority. Children have ample opportunities to learn through their play and are able to interact with other children of similar ages. I am happy to tailor my services to suit a families particular needs.
I have previously worked in two local primary schools and a nursery school. I have over 35+ years of continuous, professional childcare experience, including supporting children with special needs.
The setting is based at both Wethersfield Village Hall and at my home in Shalford. I have been established as a childminder since 2016. I am OFSTED registered on the Voluntary Childcare Register and on the Compulsory Childcare Register. All staff are members of PACEY (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years). My own qualifications include Nursery Management Level 3, BTEC National Diploma Childhood Studies, Child Care Level 3, Teaching Assistant Level 2 and Safeguarding Lead Level 3.
Staff all have Paediatric First Aid Level 3 Certificates and Food Safety Level 2. Staff continue to undertake professional development certified training. Our Food Hygiene Rating is Level 5.
As well as my own formal qualifications I have completed training courses covering a range of topics including: Supporting the Development of Listening and Speaking Skills, Behaviour Management, Top Sport, Playground Games, Best Practice for Babies for PVI, and Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism.
Staff are Enhanced DBS checked and are on the update service. All visitors are monitored closely and recorded. Public Liability Insurance is in place as recommended by PACEY.
