ANGELA ENNIS REG. CHILDMINDER offers a safe, nurturing environment where your child will get the attention and care that he or she needs. My ratio of children to adults is always within government guidelines - and often even lower - to make certain each child receives top-quality care.

I have been a registered Childminder since 1996.


I am a network and accredited Childminder and also belong to the Professional Association for Childcare & Early Years (PACEY) formerly known as the National Childminding Association (N.C.M.A.) Please feel free to visit their website, and also Croydoncma.org.uk which is the website for Network Childminders in Croydon and also holds useful information for parents.


I hold an Advanced Diploma in Childcare & Education and use the Early Years Foundation Stage/Birth to Three Matters framework within my setting. As from September 2012 the introduction of the new E.Y.F.S. framework requires me to focus on 3 areas of learning and development for children up to the age of 3 yrs 1) communication and language, 2) physical development 3) personal, social and emotional development. For children from 3 yrs - 5 yrs the focus will also be on 4)literacy 5) mathematics 6) understanding the world 7) expressive arts and design. These are discussed with parents when children start and they are given regular updates on how their child is progressing. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you'd like to know a little more about what these mean.


I am registered with Ofsted as a home daycare facility/childminder and have met all health and safety guidelines. Children participate in developmentally-appropriate activities throughout the day, such as:

Tumble Tots

Story Time

Puzzles and Games

ICT activities

Arts and Crafts

Musical Bumps

Pre-Reading Activities

Shape sorting & colour matching

Building blocks

Dressing up/role play

Stay & Play sessions

Outings

Sand & Water play

Library visits


We also do weekly sessions of:

Tumble Tots, Musical Bumps, Childminders stay & play plus usual stay & play.

We also celebrate festivals such as: Chinese New Year, Easter, Diwali and Christmas and am open to suggestions for other festivals.


You can rest assured that your child will be cared for with kindness, love and respect. I believe that all children are special and I treat them as though they are my own.
