Alison Atherton (Cherry Blossom Childcare)

I am a newly qualified childminder in Wardle.  I have worked in childcare for 28 years the last 17 years as the manager in a playgroup.  I have 3 grown up children living with me at the moment, we also have a cat.

I have got a BA Hons Degree in Early Years Practice and Early Years Professional Status, level 3 paediatric first aid and basic food hygiene.  I have attended local authority workshops/meetings.  I will continue to learn, develop and enhance my personal skills.

I have a designated playroom set up with a wide range of resources, that will support children to learn and develop through play, this play will cover the 7 areas of learning set out in the EYFS and will be enhanced with activities designed around the children individual interests/development needs.  I am going to use the environment to support our learning, puddle splashing, collecting natural object, observing the chance in the seasons, exploring the vast countryside and visits to local parks.
