Hello, I offer full or part time care for children from as little as 4 months. I can also provide before and after school childcare; dropping off and picking up from Dartford Bridge CommunityPrimary School. Before becoming a registered childminder I worked as a PA in the City. Having been a working parent myself I understand how important it is to find good quality childcare that both you as a parent and your child are happy with. I am married with 2 young children, Noah and Ethan.
We believe it is important for children and parents to feel comfortable with the nursery setting, and have confidence in the staff. We aim to settle children in quickly and easily by taking intoaccount their individual needs and circumstances, ensuring that the child feels both welcome and secure.
Open term-time Monday - Friday between 9am and 12.30pm, we are registered to accept children between the ages of 2 and 5 years. With a maximum of 24 children in each session we are a small andfriendly group. We are able to work closely with parents and carers to ensure we get to know the children in our setting and provide them with a familiar and enjoyable place in which to socialise and share learning experiences.
Enabling Environments: We provide enabling environments because we know that children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs andthere is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and carers.
At Dimples we believe Children are unique and individual and deserve to be loved, cherished and nurtured. Through play, our professional, dedicated and caring practitioners promote each individualchild's learning and interests. We respect that parents are their children's first educators and we hugely value our strong partnership with parents.
