Samantha Hedges-Childminder, Bromham, Bedford
Hello! My name is Sam (short for Samantha) and I am Mummy to a 4year old girl and step-mum to an 11 year old boy.
I am an Ofsted rated GOOD childminder with a full enhanced dbs check completed. I also hold a full paediatric first aid certificate.
My home is centered around providing a safe and engaging environment for children to play and learn in. I have a large enclosed garden to provide a private area for children to explore nature and develop their physical skills.
I allow the children in my care to choose their own interests and to develop by exploring the different ways in which toys can be used; I then use these interests to plan and organise activities and trips to expand their development using an enjoyed stimulus.
I follow the guidelines set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage in order to ensure the children in my care are being stimulated, supported and encouraged in the correct way.
