"Partnerships with parents are strong. Parents praise the childminder's dedication and are very happy with the service she provides. She effectively shares information with them and has developed questionnaires as a means of gaining their feedback. She talks to parents on a daily basis, to find out about children's care routines and consequently has developed effective partnerships."
I respect the role that parents play as the principal carer in their children's lives and want to develop a close partnership with parents so that we can best meet your family's needs. We will have chance to talk at drop off and pick up to exchange any information.
For parents of early years children you will receive a daily diary detailing toileting, eating and sleeping information, along with activities they have enjoyed. You can view your child's learning journey whenever you like and are encouraged to take it home each half term to share with your child and other family members. Each half term you will receive an assessment of your child's learning and development and a half termly newsletter.

"Saw lots of childminders at playgroup, Linda was always very involved with the children she cared for and was really caring and supportive to them. Linda is very open, friendly and pro-active in sharing information about activities and any concerns. I am very happy with the caring home environment that Linda creates. W is always happy to go and tells me he has had a great time."
