Registered Childminder - Uphill Lincoln

My name is Catharine, I am the owner of Tiny Monkeys Registered Childminders in Lincoln. 

I am based uphill, on the Ermine East, my opening hours are 6am - 6pm but I am flexible to work outside these hours should that be required. I pick up and drop off from st Giles Academy. 

I aim to offer a warm and welcoming environment to all children I care for as well as building positive relationships with parents to ensure that together all children are having their individual needs met whether that be personal or developmental.

I plan my week around each childs individual needs alongside the EYFS which is a statuatory requirement given to us from Ofsted. Each child will have their own daily diary which i will complete whilst the child is in my care and a learning journal which will be handed over once the book is completed. Both these books are given to keep parents up to date on everything the child us doing whilst in my care and how these activities are helping to progress them in their 3 prime areas of development (physical, personal, social and emotional, communion & Language)

Notes

My home offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere. I want all children to feel comfortable when they are in my setting and parents to feel comfortable with where they are leaving their children. 

All my downstairs will be open during a working day, giving children a large space to be able to play indoors. My toilet is upstairs so children who are toilet trained will be using an upstairs toilet which is safe from any chemicals. Depending on the childs age and ability will determine whether they go supervised or not. 

I have a fully closed in back garden which has various toys to play with to help build on a childs physical development, as well as a large football field and park across the road which can be used to give the children a change of scenery.
