Hello, my name is Cheryl Dummer and I am a retired UK Ofsted Registered Childminder with a level 3 NVQ in Early Years Care and Education, now based for the winter season in Bulgaria in my second home close to Borovets. I offer a professional Ski Nanny and Babysitting service to holidaying families in Borovets.
In the UK I have also worked front line for the South West Ambulance Service for the past 18 years, now retired, and am qualified in advanced paediatric first aid.
For thirteen years, until 2016, I concurrently managed my own small home nursery, working with two assistants, caring for babies and pre-school children and specialising in all-weather outdoor provision.
I also provided regular home weekend and holiday respite care, working for social services, for children with additional needs, specifically autism.
My childminding service was twice awarded the highest grade of Outstanding, and I have many excellent references which are available for viewing. I am also pleased to email a copy of my last Ofsted inspection report to all parents who contact me.
I ski myself and am a mother of four grown-up children. I also speak Bulgarian and French, and have a level 5 TEFL qualification to teach English as a foreign language. In the UK I have worked in a primary school providing EAL (English as an additional language) learning support to Bulgarian children. I have a fully clear and up-to-date enhanced DBS (police check) from my work in the UK primary school. I carry it with me for parents to view and am also happy to email it on request.
I absolutely understand the need for trusted and reliable care for your little ones, so that you can fully enjoy your skiing, whilst being reassured that your young babies and children have close individual care and attention, and that they are safe and also enjoying their holiday in the snow.
Photographs of your children can be taken, with your permission, and emailed directly to you at the end of each day.
