Stacey Roberts Childminding  –  Flexible Childcare

I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder in Shoreham-by-Sea, and offer a safe and secure environment. I am registered to look after babies and children from new-born upwards. I live within 5 minutes walk from Shoreham Train Station.

I have been a Childminder since March 2010.100_6460

I am qualified in Childcare (NVQ Level 3, plus various short courses, please see below for more details). I have attended and passed the Level 2 Paediatric First Aid course, Introduction to ICP (Homebased Child Care) and have attended the required childminding sessions. Both my husband and I have had the Criminal Record Bureau checks and the home safety checks carried out by Ofsted. You are welcome to view and check these certificates at your time of visit. 

I live in Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex with my husband, and two daughters (born 2009 and 2011). I have experience of working in a Pre-School Nursery (approx. 2 years) previous work has been Care and Office work.
Bringing together the varied roles of office, care and childcare, to give children a varied, fun and caring environment to stay in.  We also have 2 Guinea Pigs.

It is now a requirement that childminders follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS – please see Links above to read more on this), which requires me to follow the ARguidelines of the EYFS, working in a professional manner, observing and promoting your child to achieve their goals in a fun, safe and secure environment. Working together with you as parents / carers to achieve the ultimate outcome for your child.

I do update my website on a regular basis, though please feel welcome to email me for more details on vacancies, prices or any other clarification that you require. Or to arrange a visit.
