Clements, Mrs Elaine Elspeth
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

I am married with 3 adult children. I worked in a childrens home for children with additional needs for 8 years before we started our own family.

I have been minding for 21 years, during this time I have gained a wealth of experience and completed many courses. I also have a Cache level 3 certificate in childminding practice and a certificate in Early Years care and Education Level 3 (NVQ).

I am up to date with my EYFS training & give the children in my care the opportunities to cover all the areas I am required to.

I like to follow the interests of the children and we build up a topic about their interest. We go on several outings, do lots of craft and have lots of fresh air in our lovely big garden. We have a large trampoline and huge supply of toys.

I have been rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted on 3 inspections since 2007.  I am dedicated to giving the children a very happy, stimulating early years experience.  They each have a learning journey which enables me to work closely with parents to help their children reach their full potential.
