• Advice from Home Educators

    "Deschool, if your child has been in school.  Listen to your child. Don't panic on the bad days. Enjoy it on the good days. It is such a precious time and such a privilege to be with your children so much. If I had my time again I would have home educated from the beginning."

East Ham, London, UK

Would like some over 5 year olds to join in on our days out. I currently home educate my 8 and 2 year old. Once a primary school teacher, now an advocate of Self Directed Education. Not an Ofsted registered childminder as a result but I do have a current DBS certificate. I use non violent communication, PET problem solving strategies for conflict and would like to try sociocratic processes for planning our days.

I live with my 3.5 year old and am passionate about children’s rights and facilitating child led exploration of the world around us. We love science, woodlands and crafts. We have a wealth of wooden open ended toys, and would like to build raised beds in the garden to grow food plus do lots of trips out to parks, woodland and museums.

I am a Registered childminder in the Kelty area, providing quality care from birth to 16yrs.  I take a mixed age of kids throughout the day and provide stimulating activities appropriate for the age/stage of the children.  Such activities are: swimming, gymnastics, woodland adventures, trips in the bus/train, park visits, days out (animal parks, museums, science centre).  We also enjoy indoor play, being creative (lego, baking, craft, play doh), encouraging imagination (den building, tea parties, role play).

Children in my setting are valued for their uniqueness  and recognised that everyone is an individual, promoting equal opportunities, respecting views, ideas and opinions of others. They are encouraged to share their thoughts and are very much involved in the running of the service.

Cressing Road, Braintree CM7 3PP, United Kingdom

I am an Ofsted registered Childminder based in Braintree, Essex, living with my husband and two young children (aged 1 and 3).  I am able to accommodate children of all ages including those whom are home educated, and can work with parents to provide learning opportunities to suit individual interests and needs.

I previously volunteered as a teaching assistant for several primary schools whilst working full time for Kent Police in a civilian role, providing the opportunity to discover how much I enjoy working with children. Although I enjoyed volunteering as a teaching assistant I wanted the freedom to be my own boss and to explore different approaches in how best to assist children in reaching their full potential. I therefore decided to become a childminder, and hope to expand my services to tutor children primary school aged and below.

My aim is to provide a safe, caring, ‘home from home’, inclusive environment for children and to provide stimulating activities to support their continued learning and development. My setting is fully equipped to care for children, including a wide range of toys, books, puzzles, games and opportunities for both adult led and child led play. We have a tee-pee, play kitchen, table and chairs for children to use, play mats for young babies and a large garden for children to enjoy with a wide selection of garden toys and opportunities for outdoor play. Children will also have the opportunity to grow their own fruit and veg in our new vegetable patch and use their produce to assist in creating their own meals.

In addition to the learning opportunities I can provide within my home I am also within walking distance to many children’s groups including those held at the Carousel Children’s Centre in Braintree, Braintree Library and St Paul’s Church in Hay Lane South, Braintree. I also live close to Great Notley’s Country Park.

I have an extensive food and drink menu, catering for a wide range of dietary requirements, including vegetarians and vegans.

Please contact me if you wish to see a copy of my Childminder Prospectus which contains full details of my setting and the service I provide.
