Introduction

Donna Nevill Childminding Services ~ Ofsted Registration No: EY561944

 

My name is Donna and I am a mum of 6 aged 25, 20, 12, 11 and 4 years old. I live in Tilgate with my 3 youngest as the 2 older boys have flown the nest and have to also mention Ross who died at the age of 3 in 2005 after his 3rd open heart surgery. This experience has been a life changer and will continue to be, taking our family on unimaginable pathways. I’d like to think that we have survived with knowledge, qualities and skills others may not have and that you will appreciate full honesty from the onset even if you feel this was irrelevant information to share.

I left school in 1988 and passed a HNC in Mechanical Engineering in 1993. In 1996 I registered as a childminder until 2011 when I madly set on a new business venture of opening a shop and training to do Massage and other Holistic & Beauty Treatments. I now offer these from home around my childcare business, incorporating some relaxation time within the childcare.
I am in the process of re-registering with Ofsted (EY561944) and so am insured with Mortem Michel as a childminder exempt
from registration. I am also registered with Ofsted as an assistant to help a local childminder on an adhoc basis.
I have a level 3 qualification in Childminding Practice and along with 24 years experience of being a parent and 15 years experience of caring for other people’s children I have the correct foundations and morals to care for all ages based from my own home. I hold a current Paediatric First Aid certificate, (course attended 21/1/2017 which is valid for 3 years), a current DBS for home based work, Level 3 Child Protection, Food Hygiene, valid business car insurance and many other CPD courses that are within my welcome pack.

Once registered I will have vacancies for 2 under 5 year olds, 3 over 5 year olds in half terms and morning/afterschool but as of now I can help with 2 hours a day care or over 8 year olds (September 2018) as this is work “exempt from registration”, please ask if you are unsure.

Different types of Childcare and the Legal Requirements
- Childcare that is “exempt from registering” includes Nannies, those caring for children for up to 2 hours a day or those caring for children over the age of 8 years. Working professionally is important to me in whatever I undertake and so no matter what our agreement is, wherever possible, I still adopt the legal guidelines meaning that Learning and Development, Assessment and the Safety and Welfare of Children are all considered.
The documents below outline the requirements and must also be available for families to peruse:
Ÿ
Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
Ÿ
The Common Inspection Framework, Early Years Inspection Handbook

“We are expected to self evaluate on a regular basis, as at september 2018 I have a very positive and professional outlook to any work I undertake and my best quality is how I enjoy helping others. My base is a cosy, adventurous home where I rotate between using the lounge, conservatory space and back garden and furthermore these spaces are frequently moved around. The garden had a revamp, decking moved and repainted, a small playhouse built, new artificial grass and plans to have a log cabin are in place. All indoor areas are newly decorated to a budget to my taste, new wooden floor, coat of paint making all areas fit for purpose and easier to keep clean. All I offer has been well thought through”.
