About Me

Hi my name is Brenda, I am a registered childminder with SCSWIS since 1980. I live in Penicuik, Midlothian, Scotland and have 2 daughters and 2 grandchildren. I am a non smoker as is the rest of the household and my home is pet free.
I enjoy reading and going to the caravan at Eyemouth at weekends.

I offer a safe and homely environment for children to learn and play, with a secure/enclosed large back garden which has lots of outdoor toys for the children to play with including a large play house, slides, scooters, bikes and swings. There is a 12' fully enclosed trampoline.

I can attend toddler groups with the children. When weather allows we go for woodland walks and to the park, when weather not so kind we go to the soft play . I also have plenty activities in the house for rainy days, and will try to accommodate the children if they ask for a specific activity.

I am flexible in providing childcare.

I am Liability Insured through SCMA.

I have a clean driving licence.
