As an Ofsted registered Childminder I am restricted to the number and ages of children that I can care for at any one time. These details are on my Ofsted Registration Certificate, and on my insurance certificate, which is displayed during my minding hours.
I am happy to take on any baby/child within my registered numbers and will not discriminate against children or their families for reasons such as race, religion, sex or ability. However I would like to make the following statements:
I can drop off/collect children from nearby schools subject to agreement with parents (extra £10).
I am happy to take on children with special needs providing I feel I can provide them with the care they need. (For example I will not be able to provide one to one care or look after a child in a wheelchair, during weekdays) If your child has additional needs please discuss them with me first.
All children will be welcomed into my home and I will encourage the other children in my care to support me with this. Non- refundable administration charge of £20 is applied during admission.
I will request a one-week settling in period on our contract, so if you or your child or I am not happy with the arrangement it can be terminated easily. When taking on additional children I must take into consideration the children already in my care who are happy and settled. It would be very unfair on them to introduce a child who was disruptive.
If you have any concerns regarding my admissions policy please do not hesitate to contact me.
