Hello. My name is Barbora, originally from Slovakia I settled here having married a local. Following the arrival of my daughter I set up Elephant Childcare in 2008. I completed a training course in Home Based Childcare and attend a First Aid Training Course every two years to ensure my skills are up to date.
We live in a quiet residential area at the northern edge of Ripon. I offer a warm and caring environment catering for no more than three children at any one time. We have lots of fun during the day whilst including learning targets as set out by the Early Years Foundation Stage.
Safety is paramount, I take a sensible and practical approach to looking after children in the home as a childminder, with periodic inspections by OFSTED to ensure we have considered all elements.
I have a variety of toys and activities to suit children of all ages. I try to include as much diversity as possible into each day so that the children learn about a range of things absorbing knowledge without realising. I try to go outdoors with the children every day with regular visits to Newby Hall and Gardens and Fountains Abbey.
I am happy to provide meals for the children during the day or they can bring a packed meal from home. I try to encourage healthy eating and will offer the children fruit and cereal bars rather than sweets when they are with me.
I am fully insured for childminding having Public Liability insurance to cover the children in my care and Business Cover for my car so that everything is covered whilst we are travelling.
