Mrs Debbie Shepherd

I provide excellent home-based childcare in a caring, friendly environment, where children can be themselves, progressing at their own pace. I have a large range of toys, books and creative materials which children are able to access freely providing all round stimulation. Individualised care and learning is provided for each child enabling children to make excellent progress in all areas of learning. Children play outside every day, either in the garden, local park or local woodland increasing their sense of well-being and ability to learn. All learning is child-centred, and children's interests used to develop planning.

Additional Information

I am a Registered Childminder with Early Years Teacher Status and a first-class BA Honours degree in early years care and education. My premises are large with a similar layout to a small nursery enabling me to provide similar provision to a nursery but with numbers of children attending being less allowing more individualised attention is provided. My provision is an ideal place for all age children including funded two- and three-year olds. Parents can use their early education funding entitlement at any time during opening hours.
