Outstanding Childminder in Duston

Post  Squirrelschildcare on Fri Oct 11, 2013 7:47 am

My name is Melissa Swain and I run SquirrelsChildcare. I am a warm, secure and family focused person. I love working with children to maximise their potential through their interests and experiences.
I love to provide each and every child in my care, including my own, with the best possible day they can have. Working on their needs and interests as well as giving them new and exciting experiences.
I strive to make improvements, adjustments and develop my own career and in doing so feel I offer a unique experience to those in my care.
I balance work and life with walking, swimming, enjoying the outdoors and a bit of camping in the VW campervan with my family.
I have animals at my setting, as i said we are family orientated and I believe animals form part of the loving and caring enviroment. Our dog has been around both our newborn babies, numerous toddlers and loves a good birthday party! We also have a rabbit and fish. All children learn to love, care and respect the animals as well as learn the health and safety needs. I pride myself in teaching young children to have a respectful approach to animals and I even have helped adults overcome their concerns!!!}

I have more than 14 years experience working with children in many different capacities. Ranging from a Primary school teacher, Early Years Consultant and Childcare/Play work Assessor,

All my life I have either volunteered working with children (when I was at secondary school), through my degree I supported summer camps athletics and tennis coaching and then on through my career to maximise and secure the best possible outcomes for children in their childcare setting.
