Hi, My name is Kirsty. I live just off West Street in Leek with my fiancé Matt, 21 month old son Caleb, his 9 and 10 year old siblings Kyle and Chloe and our beagle, Poppy.
I am Ofsted registered and have full and part-time spaces for pre-schoolers/babies and before and after school care collecting from Westwood First and St Edwards. (Independent arrival can be arranged for older children attending other schools if required). I can also offer places for school holidays only.
I offer a comfortable, home-from-home environment and am able to provide daily outings and child-specific activities.
Our typical day consists of an outing to the library, play group, soft play, park, shopping etc in the morning and craft, construction, stories, rhymes in the afternoon. All of which is based around children’s particular interests and stage of development. I am continuously adding to our already large range of resources to engage and entertain everyone.
I use a system called Baby’s Days and upload photos and diaries daily. The system also tracks your child’s development, you can view Next Steps and add you own observations from home, creating seamless care and learning.
I am continuously seeking further training and qualifications and am choosing courses which will most benefit the children in my care. I currently hold certificates in –
Supporting early language development
Communication and Language development
Level 2 in food safety
Paediatric first aid
The Prevent Duty in an Early Years Environment
Courses to understand an implement the Early Years Foundation Stage
Although I currently do not home educate, I am happy to accommodate older children and support parents educating in our daily routine.
