Welcome to our Childminding Resource Shop
At Safe and Sound Childcare’s “Childminding Resource Shop”, we aim to provide you with high quality educational materials and resources, at an affordable and competitive price. All of our childcare materials and resources are designed to be used within the home by parents or carers or within the childcare setting. Our resources and materials are particularly suitable for use by childminders, within the childminding setting.
As a Childminder I completely understand and can relate to the desire to want to run a professional and high quality childminding setting and thus, achieve an outstanding Ofsted Inspection Report, and share this desire myself, within my own childminding practice. All of my childminding resources and materials have been designed with this intention in mind. In order to achieve an outstanding Ofsted Inspection Report, you as the childminder are expected to show that you are meeting the requirements of both the EYFS curriculum and Welfare requirements. Purchasing my childminding resources and materials, will help you to achieve this, by showing Ofsted that you are doing this, within your childminding setting.
In a childminding setting, there is a vast amount of paperwork and records, to be kept, in order to promote the safety of the children and show Ofsted that you are adhering to any underpinning legal obligations and legislation, such as: the “Welfare Requirements” and “EYFS Framework”. We hope that by producing these materials it will help to make your job easier and enable you to have more quality time to spend with the children, within your care.
To help to ensure smooth navigation through our shop, we have split our shop into the following areas: Posters and Signs, Outings, EYFS Curriculum, Registration Documents, Evaluating Practice, Fees and Accounts, Free Resource Links, Health and Safety and Healthy Eating . Doing this helps to make specific,products and resources easier to find. You are probably wondering what all these different categories mean and what type of products they contain, therefore I will give you a brief overview on the various pages of our childminding resource shop.
