Maria Clark (Childminder)

My name is Maria, I am a registered childminder and was graded OUTSTANDING in both of my Ofsted inspections. I live in Linthorpe, Middlesbrough with my husband, son and daughter.

I have always had a passion to work in a job that involves being loving, caring and supportive and feel incredibly lucky to have found exactly that!

I have a large variety of stimulating toys and learning equipment designed for all ages from 0-12+years old. I am especially eager to help children at pre-school (EYFS) levels. I consider learning is best achieved by using a variety of appropriate play strategies and equipment. This develops their mental, physical, kinaesthetic and communication skills. This is all evidenced within each child's daily diary and individual EYFS Learning Journey.

I have a designated, stimulating play room and large rear garden with adventure playground for children of all ages. I am registered to care for children from Birth-13years and have always cared for a variety of ages.

We enjoy regular outings to local museums, libraries, parks, arts&crafts events and soft plays.

I have been registered for nearly 10 years now and have gained an incredible amount of experience. While I have been a successful childminder (Ofsted Outstanding) in my own right, I have lived in a childminding environment for much of my life. My Mother (Catherine Ormerod) has been a childminder since 1986. She is no longer my mentor but is my registered assistant as we work closely together on a daily basis. From the word 'go' I realised this was what I wanted to do. I love caring for children!

As a mother myself I am fully aware of how precious our own children are to us, therefore finding what is right for them is a common ground with all parents that we strive to achieve.
