About Me

Welcome to Brightstar Childminders

My name is Yvonne and I am a Childminder registered with OFSTED. I started my childminding career in 1997. I hold a full driving licence and my car is insured for business use. I hold a Paediatric first aid certificate which is renewed every 3 years. My training is always ongoing. I am a member of Morton Michel Childminder Insurance Company, who provide my insurance requirements including Public Liability. I was inspected by OFSTED in August 2018 and am very proud to say that I was graded Outstanding across all areas.

I live in Ford and am close to local bus routes.

I am registered to care for up to 6 children under the age of eight. Of these 6, 3 maybe between the ages of 3 months and 4 years and 3 children between the ages of 5 years and 8 years.

I allocate 1 of my spaces to the Government Free Entitlement for 2 year olds and 1 of my spaces to 3/4 year olds.

I welcome the Workplace Childcare Voucher Scheme.

I encourage all children in my care to develop and learn. ¬†This I successfully achieve by promoting and ensuring a happy environment which supports the children’s learning journey.

I have experiences of supporting children from different cultures with English as their second language. I work closely with parents to ensure an easy transition into my setting.

Children in my care are always made to feel valued, safe and secure. Each Child is unique and I help to develop this uniqueness by creating experiences and opportunities to nurture this.

If the children are happy they learn more making their parents happy which makes me happy!
