Yvonne's Childcare

I live in the Peachcroft estate in Abingdon with my husband and 3 children aged 7, 5 and 1. I registered as a childminder in 2007 after deciding not to return to the engineering job I had before starting a family. I provide childcare in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and I hope that I am the sort of childminder that I would wish to use for my own children. My house is a 4-bedroom house with an enclosed back garden suitable for playing in. Children can play in the playroom or do craft, cooking or messy activities in the kitchen and dining area.

The upstairs is reserved for sleeping. I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and I have a wide variety of toys and resources suitable for different ages and stages of development. I regularly take trips out to parks, toddler groups, music groups and the library amongst other places during the day. During school holidays I arrange various trips to supplement activities at or near home.
