Janet Morris (Morris Minors Childcare)

I am an OFSTED registered childminder based in Thornaby, near Littleboy Park and the Town Centre. I live with my husband and I have been a childminder since 2007.

My three bedroomed extended house gives the children room to move around and play. My back garden is secure, with a play shed which has a sandpit, play kitchen, barbecue, dolls cot and lots of other outside toys.

I take the children on outings to parks, gardens, seaside and cafes to give them a varied view of the world around them, develop their understanding and social skills.

I keep up to date with training which includes safeguarding, first aid and childrens development. 

I received the 'Good' grading from Ofsted on my most recent inspection in 2019, and previously in 2016.

Description

I have disability awareness training, I have autism training'how to work with children with autism' from Daisy Chain. I have personal experience within my family of autism, cystic fibrosis and cerebral palsy.

I believe in equality and diversity and would make any child no matter what disability or culture, welcome in my home. My grandson has a wheelchair, but is lucky enough to be able to get out of it to come into the house. My husband is a keen DIYer and I am sure if I looked after a wheelchair user he would make a ramp to be able to wheel the chair into the house.
