We are two friends of many years, Natalie Scott and Victoria Mills (Tory) who have both worked as qualified daily nannies for more than 10 years before becoming fully OFSTED registered childminders.
Natalie gained her NNEB in 1993 and Victoria gained her BTEC National Diploma in 1994. Both college courses were 2 year full time courses.
We have been co-minding since October 2003 from Natalie's house, which is located on the small estate of Blue Bridge, in North Milton Keynes, and is just 5 minutes from Central Milton Keynes. Victoria lives in Milton Keynes although is registered to only childmind from Natalie's house.
The house is a 3 bedroom detatched house with a spacious and well stocked garden, dedicated playroom and is situated in a small, quiet courtyard area.
We are both fully OFSTED registered and CRB checked. We have completed a 12 hour Paediatric First Aid course at the Pre School Learning Alliance and have also attended training on how to deliver the new EYFS to all children under 5 years in our setting.
We have been childminding for nearly 10 years but have over 19 years childcare experience.
We involve the children in lots of different activities both in and out of the setting as well as making good use of our local Sure Start Children's Centres.
We have an OUTSTANDING Ofsted rating, which is the highest there is and we are very proud of. We received this rating at our last inspection in February 2010.
