Professionality as a childminder
With Minicreche Noena I adhere to all requirements for acknowledged childcare, of course. This means, for example the approval of the GGD (for our home), an EHBO-certificate for children and proof of good behavior.
Of course, you are also eligible for childcare allowance from the government within acknowledged childcare. When you register your child, I will help with the arrangement of this government allowance, so that you don’t have to worry about anything.
In case you would like more information in the meantime, then you can view the page of the Belastingdienst.
Landelijk Register Kinderopvang
Minicreche Noena is subscribed in the “Landelijk Register Kinderopvang”, a database of all acknowledged childcare. It is a requirement in order for parents to get the government allowance. Next to that I work together with the agencies All Kidz Nederland and ViaViela. They provide a cashier function as well as a neutral party mediation between the childminder and the parent(s). (Another agency of your choice is also possible.)
I am also connected to the VGOB, the branch association for childminders.
Diplomas and courses
As a childminder I take my business very seriously. I am in possession of the diplomas Helpende Zorg en Welzijn, SPW-3 en HBO Kindercoach. Next to that I take courses regularly. All with the purpose to be able to take care of your child in the best way possible.
Learning while playing
A good and reliable care for your child is the most important. However, it is also nice if your child is having a good time and learning from it. This is why I apply the so called Vroeg Voorschoolse Educatie (VVE). This means learning to talk while playing, reading and moving.
As a childminder I find it important that the children eat healthy. We eat fruit, vegetables or a cracker every morning and afternoon accompanied by a cup of water or cooled down tea. As an exception we have lemonade without sugar.
The babies in the daycare also get (mashed) fruit. I do not use fruit in jars.
On the sandwich we have 100% pure peanut butter, hummus, chicken filet, 30+ cheese or a boiled egg with a cup of semi-skimmed milk.
I also make my own soup (served at the right temperature of course) for the children, like tomato or vegetable soup.
When one of the children celebrates their birthday, it is asked to bring a healthy treat, like a skewer of fruit or a box of raisins. We very rarely eat candy.
In case mom or dad is a little late, or if requested, the children can eat a healthy dinner with us.
