Hello – my name is Vikki Harris and I am an Ofsted registered childminder (my Ofsted number is EY475874). I live in Woolton with my two daughters (aged 6 and 3) and my husband, Stu. We also have two dogs, Hulk and Sally.
I have completed the following training courses required in order to become a registered childminder:
I plan activities around the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS), to help progress in each area of development and learning. I rotate the indoor toys around regularly so the children get access to many different toys and always have some of the (current) regular favourites available for free play time. Craft/creative activities are a regularly undertaken, and both craft and drawing materials will be always available for any free play time or at the children’s request. Other activities and outings will be done bearing the weather, children’s current interests and what we are currently learning about in mind. For more information, please take a look at our Activities section.
I try to post regularly in the website Blog, usually showing the different activities I do with the children, or maybe some ideas that you could take and use yourself.
Our home is a three bedroom semi detached house in Woolton, Liverpool. Take a look on the google map at the bottom of the page? We have three rooms downstairs that the children can use to play and learn – the Living Room, the Kitchen and the Play room. We also have a yard and a garden that has many things to do including growing vegetables, a sandpit, water table, trikes and scooters. You can see photos of these main rooms below.
