Ingram, Mrs Caroline M
I have been a registered childminder since 1991. I have been working in this field constantly sine 1994, having looked after some children from birth to independence. I live with my husband in Helston. Children I care for usually develop a relationship with him as well as myself, just like being in the family. However, I am the childs key person.
I have achieved an NVQ 2 in Childcare Learning & Development.
Other qualifications such as Food Safety,safeguarding& Paediatric First Aid have been obtained independently and are up to date. I have passed the Makaton simple sign language course to help me connect with children who have communication difficulties.
Children in my care have their own playroom stocked with a wide range of toys, books, art & craft equipment that are suitable for all age ranges. There are also a range of outdoor toys for all ages within a private decking area.
There is a fishpond away from the decking which is not accessible without adult supervision,and is a good source of viewable wildlife, frogs, dragonflies & newts etc.There are also good views of small birds, bees & butterflies etc during the relevant months. Partly under renovation at present.
A keen exercise attitude is the norm as I do not drive, with children walking to & from school. Visits to the local library, museum, toddler groups, and packed lunch trips to the park for more fun & physical activities.
My aim is to keep the children in my care happy, healthy & safe, and to help them develop to their full potential.
For who wish for references prior to children being minded, they can be obtained from parents, past & present of minded children.
