Catherine Bachiri

Childminder

Childminder, before and after school service.

Hi my name is Catherine Bachiri and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder. I live in the Wood Street area of Walthamstow with my husband and our two sons. Before becoming a childminder I worked as a paediatric nurse since 2004. Being a mum myself I decided to have a change in career. I really enjoy working with children so I decided that I would become a childminder as not only could I continue working with children but I also would have a bit more time for my own children as working as a nurse I found it very difficult to get the work life balance right. 

I am registered with Ofsted and have completed all the necessary training which includes Home Based Childminder Award, First Aid Paediatric training, Safeguarding training, Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene For Early Years Setting and the enhanced dbs check. I am also a member of PACEY(Professional Association For Childcare And Early Years) which has allowed me to carry out the following training 

supporting children with speech, language and communication needs.

raising developmental concerns with parents.

delivering the EYFS.

expectations of behaviour.

supporting children's emotional well being. 

I am also a fully qualified paediatric nurse.

Notes

I live in a 2 bed house in a quiet area of Walthamstow with a good size back garden which will provide hours of fun for all children. My setting is on the 275, 212 and W16 bus route. I live in close proximity to Wood Street Library and many local parks (including Lloyds Park). Our routine includes trips to the local park to feed the ducks, trips to the local farm to feed the different animals, attending toddlers groups, children centres, libraries and local attractions to play, explore and make new friends. 

All care provided in my setting is in accordance with the Early Years Foundations Stage and is linked to the seven key areas of children's learning and development.
