Building Blocks Child Care

I offer ‘30 hours childcare for working parents’ in partnership with other childcare in my area.

I also offer 15 hours for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. These hours can be done alongside another Early Years setting, ideally within the local area.

I will have vacancies available now, for both funded childcare as well as private. Please contact me if you are requiring childcare from this time onwards. I will also have availability from September 2020 for funded places or payed.

I am a very experienced Childminder (Ofsted Rated Good) and I am located at the top of Willington.

I live with my husband Alan and our two girls aged 11 and 9 1/2 years old.

I have worked in Early Years throughout my working life and have so much to offer. I am qualified to Level 4 in Early Years and have lots of training under my belt. I’ve worked as a sole charge nanny, working on cruise ships as a child counsellor, working in day nurseries and more recently I was a Family Worker working alongside a Health Visiting team and social services, working from Family / Children's Centres in the Bishop Auckland area.

The experience I have gained over the years has been a valuable tool.

I am continually keeping up to date with regular training, through Durham County Council and I am updating my SEND training.

I offer a quality service within a safe, homely environment where your child will be looked after and cared for. Learning through play are the building blocks of life.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is a very important part of the Early Years curriculum, to following your child’s development, this will be updated on a regular basis. Each child will be tracked regularly, and they will also have a Learning Journal, which is updated regularly.

I currently have some availability during the end of the week for a 3/4 year olds. I aim to be flexible if required. Please contact me for more information.
