I am a qualified primary school teacher but childmind from my family farm in Cossington. We are a working farm that produces beef, so there are always plenty of tractors, hay bales and calves to see. We also keep a variety of other animals including chickens, pheasants, peacocks, geese, ducks, rabbits and goats, so children will have many opportunities to get stuck in with feeding the animals and collecting eggs. Living on a farm means we have lots of fantastic outdoor spaces, and that we spend a great deal of time outside. As well as the large garden, we also keep a small vegetable patch and greenhouse in our orchard, where children can help grow their own fruit and vegetables throughout the year, and get involved with apple and blackberry picking in the autumn. The orchard is also a great space for building dens. Inside, we keep a dog and two rats as well as two boys when they are not at school. The children in my care will have access to two playrooms stocked with a variety of toys and games and use of the open-plan kitchen for meal times and messy activities, including baking, arts and crafts and painting. ;

Vacancies description
Cultural notes I will make sure that I actively promote equality of opportunity and anti discriminatory practices for all children. I will make sure that I treat all children with equal concern and respect. I recognise and welcome all legislation and existing codes of practice produced by appropriate commissions, for example the Equality and Human Rights Commission. I value and respect the different racial origins, religions, cultures and languages in a multi ethnic society so that each child is valued as an individual without racial or gender stereotyping. I will not discriminate against children on the grounds of disability, sexual orientation, age, class, family status and HIV Aids status. I provide equal chances for each child to learn and develop to their full potential, taking into account each childs age and stage of development, gender, ethnicity, home language and ability. I provide, and make sure that all the children have access to, a range of books, puzzles and other toys which provide positive images and examples of the diversity of life in our society. I challenge racist and discriminatory remarks, attitudes and behaviour from the children in my care and other adults.;
