UPDATE: Please note that as of August 2015 I am no longer registered with Ofsted as a childminder.

Miriam Baker Childminder (on a day out in Brighton by the way!)Hi! My name is Miriam. Welcome to my website.

I am an Ofsted-registered childminder working in Cox Green, Maidenhead. I began childminding in June 2009 and before that worked as a nanny for a number of years. I have an Ofsted approved Paediatric first aid course, and have completed training in Food Safety and Hygiene so that I can provide cooked meals safely for the children. I continue to undertake regular courses to enhance my professional development, courses include baby signing and Problem Solving, Reasoning and Numeracy in the Under 5's. I can provide references from families who I currently work for, all of whom have been with me for at least six months.

I have two children of my own, an eleven year old boy and a thirteen year old girl. I am able to do school and nursery pickups from Wessex Primary School and some other nurseries by arrangement. I have lots of experience with young children having worked as a nanny and in day nurseries. Both myself and my husband have Ofsted enhanced CRB checks.

Vacancies

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements.

We live in a large four bedroom detached house with a playroom with lots of toys, games and craft activities. There is a large enclosed garden with a trampoline and outdoor toys for summer fun. We also have two lovely guinea pigs, Katie and Sarah. There is a spare bedroom upstairs with a cot and bed for children to sleep during the day as needed.

There is a park ten minutes walk away and during the holidays I take the children out for day trips and to have fun. I offer a full programme of activities during term time such as toddler groups, singing at the local library, visits to the park, and the children also spend lots of time in my home doing themed activities. Children are cared for following the EYFS guidelines.

 

Ofsted Inspection

I was inspected by Ofsted in November 2009. The Ofsted inspector spends time with the childminder whilst they are caring for children and observes and reports what they find. I was awarded the grade good overall with outstanding in providing children with a healthy lifestyles and outstanding in working in partnership with parents.
