My name is Caroline Baker I am a registered childminder and work with an assistant. I have achieved outstanding in all 17 areas of the OFSTED Inspection for several years (download report), whilst reflecting and developing my setting at all times. I am married to Simon and live in Lincoln. We have three great children Hayley ,Carla and Harry.

We live in a spacious semi detached house thatís got a purposely built fun area for all children to develop, which includes lots of sensory play. A designated craft area, reading and chill out zone. We have two outdoor areas that are used all year around, one being a exploring zone with water and sand play, role play corners & the other being a farm area with chickens and a vegetable patch. We also have a log cabin which is converted into a class room area that is used to learn and take each individual Childs learning curve forward whilst following the Early Years Foundation Stage in a positive way.

I am a member of the National Childminding Association and aim to meet their quality standards in my childminding practice. I also have public liability insurance through them. I have just gained a Degree in The Early Years to help enhance my knowledge and understanding of children.

I have lots of experience with childminding and have done it for several years. My aim is to provide a safe and caring environment for your child. We will encourage your child to learn for themselves and be able to make their own decisions. We will work closely with you to gain knowledge of your child and their experiences. We acknowledge that you the parents are the primary educators of your child and we aim to provide the best possible care for your child. At puddle ducks we offer a safe, stimulating and a enjoyable environment for all the children I care for . Before becoming a childminder I was in Royal Air Force but donít panic we are not moving.

I am not a true yellow belly (born in Lincoln) I am afraid but we are Cornish pumpkins (born in Cornwall) so what more can you ask forÖÖ..

We drop/collect children from the following schools, The Meadows Primary School & Greenlands at the Brant Road church centre.
