My name is Zoe O’ Keeffe. I am 38 and a newly qualified childminder with a passion for children’s care and development. I come from a large family being the eldest of six siblings and over the last fifteen years I have regularly provided childcare for my family for all ages and at different stages of development.
I have a diploma in children’s studies, a qualification in fundamentals of childhood and youth studies and a diploma in outdoor and physical education studies. I am CYPOP5 qualified in home based childcare as part of the level 3 diploma, I have a pediatric first aid qualification and also have an advanced CRB check.
I am also always undertaking ongoing training and qualifications in childcare related subjects and I am currently studying towards a University of Edinburgh qualification in ‘The clinical psychology of children and young people’, a University of Sheffield qualification in ‘Exploring play in every day life’ and University of Southampton qualification in ‘Understanding language, learning and teaching’.
Having helped other family members with childcare whilst they work I know how important it is and how difficult it can be, to find excellent quality child care for your children.
