Tina's Childminding

My name is Tina and I am an all-year round childminder. I aim to create a welcoming, happy, secure and safe home from home environment in which children can grow and learn. I will always strive to provide high quality childcare and education to ensure your child is making progress and being challenged to achieve in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage for the stage he/she is developing within. It is very important to me to work in close partnership with every family in their child's development and to offer a service that promotes equality and diversity. I run my business using a very secure system called Baby’s Days (GDPR compliant). Using this system I can track your child’s development in their Learning Journey which includes observations, next steps and photographs/videos. I live in Verwood together with my three daughters (born in 2010, 2013 and 2017). Before childminding, I enjoyed eleven years teaching at an Infant School in Bournemouth.

Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Support for children and young people with SEN and disabilities

The progress of all children in my setting is observed, assessed and recorded regularly using a secure online system called Baby's Days. Any concerns regarding a child's development or reaching certain milestones will be discussed with parents. Working in partnership with parents, we can discuss any concerns and seek additional support from trained professionals if appropriate. As with every child that attends my setting I always welcome parental ideas and feedback on extending their child's learning to reflect their interests and individuality. As a former teacher, I have experience of working with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. However, if further specific skills are required I am happy to attend additional training in order to provide the best provision for your child.
