I currently have 2 full time Vacancies for babies/pre-school children.
My name is Louise Delaney the head Childminder of Cheadle Child Care. I am a fully registered child minder. I have a paediatric first aid qualification. I am Ofsted and NCMA registered, I am a member of PACEY and I am a network childminder.
I have been working in Childcare since the age of 16 and have an NVQ Level 3 qualification in childcare. Other certificates are available on request. I work with an assistant who also has qualifications in safeguarding and fist aid. (among many others). For additional cover (ie Sickness) my husband is also registered, but not routinely used to look after children.
My house has been modified to accommodate children and make things super safe. This includes. Full re-wire, Extension (play room), New central heating (Gas fire removed). Our toilet is downstairs and has a lowered wash basin.
I received a good grade on my last inspection on 20/4/16. The report can be found here (Link to My Ofsted Report)
The report also says “The childminder shows commitment to continue to improve her knowledge and skills. She has attended targeted training sessions to help support her professional development. Furthermore, her self-evaluation is accurate and meaningful. This contributes to the quality of the provision.” It also said “The childminder thoughtfully and consistently involves parents in their child’s learning. Parents enjoy receiving updates about their child’s progress. These help to ensure that children’s learning is very well supported at home and in the setting.”
My commitment to the parent and to the children is to be Better, more qualified and cheaper than other childcare providers. Some activities may be available on my Facebook page, and my certificates and prices can be viewed on this site. The main one is my level 3 qualification in early years childcare which took 2 years (3 years including the level 2 I did first). Aside this I have completed many courses a small number of these you can view by clicking above. I also have a dossier with many more filed away (my website only shows a few) you are welcome to see. I have worked in every area of childcare from assistant/nursery nurse and room leader. For just over 3 years now I’ve been a childminder.
I’ve set my rates to match the lower priced childminders in the area. I also don’t charge for bank holidays my time off/holidays (some childminders charge for this). Everyday food and standard playgroups under £2 are included.
My husband is also registered with Ofsted as my assistant. He is only with me part time (as he has another job). However should something happen to me I do have some support. He also has a full paediatric first aid certificate.
All our furniture and toys conform to BS EN Standards. I also have all fire, first aid and safety equipment.
