About Busy B Childminding
Hi I am Belinda and I am 35 years old and started my career in childcare in 2004 as a play worker at an after school club, I then continued my childcare career working in nurseries as an nursery assistant gaining my NVQ level 2 in children’s care, learning and development in 2008 and progressed to deputy room leader and then completing my level 3 NVQ in children’s care, learning and development in 2009, I have also completed many short courses including child protection.
I then worked as a one to one carer at a pre-school with a child with special needs which I found very rewarding. While working at the pre-school I also started working for a family with 5 children as a nanny. After leaving the pre-school when the child moved onto school, I continued working for the family and became a part of the family, all the children attended my wedding in 2012 as my bridesmaids! When the family’s situation changed and they could no longer keep me on as a nanny I returned to a previous nursery as baby room leader where I was designated child protection officer.
I left in 2012 to have my little girl Lailah who is 5 years old and baby number two is due in October 2017.
I am very excited to be moving to Kentford and venturing out on my own after previously child minding with a friend, continuing my passion working with children and their families, with my main belief being that children learn and develop while having fun! I have completed many courses including SEND, equalities, level 2 in food hygiene, safeguarding and I am Ofsted registered, paediatric first aid, have had the required checks carried out by DBS (formally CRB) and hold the appropriate public liability insurance.
