All Registered childminders are inspected by Ofsted in England, I am a member of the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY) and an active member of PACEY local Stockport. I am also an active member of Borough of Stockport Childminding Association (BOSCMA)

Being an active member of these groups ensures I am up to date with news and events within the profession. Childminding and working within the Early Years is a dynamic and evolving profession. I am committed to providing an environment in which the children can stay safe and healthy, enjoy and achieve and make a positive contribution in the world, and importantly help them acquire the skills they need to be ready for school.

I attend regular training and information sessions to support my professional development. As well as mandatory training such as Safeguarding, First Aid and Food Hygiene I attend training and workshops to develop my own practice to ensure my setting is the best that it can be for the children in my care.
