Ashford, Mrs Jennifer Lucy

I have been childminding since 2002 and thoroughly enjoy caring for children of all ages. Providing a flexible childcare option is important to me and your family. Please come to my setting and meet me. We enjoy an active, packed week which includes messy play, parks and play areas, toddler groups, walks in the woods and Children's Centres, Farmer Palmer's, music and dance group and much more. We love playing in the garden and to inspire their imagination I have wooden stumps, balance foam beams, a wood mud/water kitchen, play house, artificial grass, threading and weaving fence and blackboards on the wall, creating lots of open ended play for the children. I have two children of my own, Danielle is 14 and James is 11 (2018). I have completed a 'Child Psychology Diploma Course; which I feel has been an asset to my childminding setting and I continue to enhance my understanding and knowledge about children and what is best for their development.In Sept 2018 I completed a 'counselling children and adolescents level 4 Diploma course' which is also supportive to children within my setting if needed.
