Ali Kennett Childminding in Bicester

Outstanding Childminder, Bure Park, Bicester


I am an Ofsted registered Outstanding childminder in Bure Park, Bicester, Oxfordshire and I cater for school runs to Bure Park Primary School and Bubbles Pre-school on the nearby Southwold estate. 

I have been childminding since 2001.  Before becoming a childminder I was a SNCO Statistical Analyst in the Royal Air Force for 17 years.


On my last 4 Ofsted inspections, the quality and standards of care that I provide merited an award of Outstanding.

It is the role of the childminder to help children experience the awe of the world in which they live, through the seven areas of learning.


I am insured with Morton Michel with whom I have my Public Liability and Legal Expenses Insurances.  I regularly complete Paediatric First Aid and Specialist Safeguarding Children courses and am CRB checked as required by Ofsted.   In July 2004 I completed a 2-year college course to achieve my CACHE level 3 Certificate in Childminding Practice (CCP).


In July 2007 I completed my evaluation training to become an Accredited Childminder, able to offer Early Years Entitlement (EYE) and receive government nursery vouchers for the 15 hours free early education for all 3 year olds and if you are entitled, I offer the 30 hours which began in September 2017. In April 2013 I completed my evaluation training to also offer funded Two Year Old Entitlement (TYE) which is available to children meeting certain criteria from September 2013.  I also attend a wide variety of courses, seminars and workshops.
