Welcome to Jan's Childcare

Qualifications

 

I am a registered childminder.

My house, garden and play equipment have been inspected by OFSTED and has passed the safety standards that are required to allow me to become a Registered Childminder. Everyone in my household over the age of 16 has been checked by the CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) for their suitability to work with and/or be around children.

I am a member of the Northamptonshire Childminding Association (NCA).  As both individuals and as a group, we pride ourselves on providing reliable, quality home-based childcare in a warm, loving environment.

Childminders work together and I have the support of a local childminder,  together we can provide occasional cover in the event of holidays, sickness or an emergency.  This contingency plan ensures that I am able to offer the best and most reliable service to you and your family.  You will be able to meet your back-up Childminder should you wish to.  All childminders are OFSTED registered.

I hold a full clean drivers licence and appropriate insurance/mot certificate (all of which can be seen).  Parents/Carers have to sign a consent form to allow me to transport their children in my car. The correct car seats (weight and age related) are used at all times if required.

I am registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office for Data Protection.
