Maria's little people, Learning Through Fun at the Home of Kindness x
About Me: Hello I'm Maria McDonald, my setting name "Maria's Little People, Learning Through Fun at the Home of Kindness x" has been chosen by the children who attend my setting. I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder and I provide a warm, happy, fun and safe environment for the children I care for.
I educate through the government's Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) through play and activities, am NVQ III qualified in Childcare and Development and have attended many training sessions and workshops including Makaton. Certificates are available to peruse.
I was inspected by Ofsted this year and some of their findings are as follows:
- The childminder and her assistant have strong bonds with children. Children settle quickly when they first start because the childminder and her assistant make them feel welcome and comfortable.
-The childminder promotes confidence well, for example she praises children's good manners and reminds them to share and to play cooperatively. Children are well behaved.
- Children enjoy a good range of learning experiences that help them to progress well. They are happy and enjoy their time with the childminder.
- The childminder gets to know the children quickly and uses her knowledge of their interests and capabilities to provide stimulating activities.
- The childminder has good relationships with parents and other setting that children attend.
My setting is in Lower Feltham near BP, Sunbury, Ashford and a quick car/bus journey to Hatton Cross Tube, Feltham Train Station, Ashford Train Station and Upper Haliford at Sunbury.
I have over 16 years experience as an Ofsted Registered Childminder and have cared for children for over 23 years.
I have an NVQ III is Childcare and Development and have St John's Paediatric First Aid Certificate which is renewed every three years. I have completed many workshops and training courses including Makaton.
