Pauline Thwaites

Childminder

I am a Registered Childminder in Higham's Park area and currently work Monday to Thursdays all year round. I currently  care for two 4 year old children with access to free funding and three children between age between 9 and 12.

The older children in my setting attend Oak Hill school and Trinity.

At my last inspection I had no children within the EYFS and was graded Met but my two previous inspections were graded outstanding.

The children and I enjoy the outdoors especially where we can explore many local amenities and recreation grounds and travelling further afield for both educational and fun outings.

Notes

I am the sole Registered childminder in my setting. I use my domestic premises for provision set on ground floor consisting of large through lounge, rear room with open access to breakfast bar and kitchen and garden space. Bathroom and sleep facilities on 1st floor. Core provision for Early Years (O-5) and young people and children (5-13).

Field trips to local community library, parks, drop-in and open spaces as well as outings by car or public transport to museums, open park spaces and city farms.

Healthy meals catered for if required (special dietary included). With the current children attending my setting, i am not in a position to provide 1-1 support during school holidays but may be in a position to do so during some school term time hours one or two days.
