About Me

I'm Cheryl and my husband is Robert and we are a childminding partnership based in Stepps and are fully qualified. We are registered jointly with The Care Inspectorate and are also members of the Scottish Childminders Association and fully insured. We are funded providers for North Lanarkshire Council in order that your child can take their funded hours in our childcare service.

We have a lovely 16 year old son and a 10 year old laid back and very friendly black labrador dog called Shadow, who has been raised amongst the children from weeks old.

We look after a variety of ages of children just now and currently take children to and from Stepps Primary School. In addition to this we shall be including Chryston Primary School in our drop off and collection.

My Experience

Cheryl has been childminding since 2007 and has had the pleasure of working with many families in that time and is still in touch with many who have moved on and holds references from many of these families for perusal. Cheryl enjoys watching the children progress through their stages and helping them to do this and always tries to work with families to help meet their needs. Cheryl keeps her training up-to-date and received her Certificate of Achievement for completing her Scheme of Excellence award and has completed her SVQ 3 in Social Services (Children and Young People) SCQF Level 7.

Robert has just joined Cheryl as a childminder. Robert is currently working through various training courses (including Paediatric First Aid). Robert brings with him his engineering experience which lends itself greatly to leading activities such as STEM and outdoor learning.

Our service is currently graded a 5 out of a possible 6 from our last inspection by SCSWIS.

My now 3 year old has been with Cheryl from just before her 1st birthday and I genuinely don’t know what I’d do without Cheryl and her family including Shadow (my child is happy and comfortable around dogs as a result!)

Cheryl provides home from home care, in a fun and relaxed environment which has helped my child grow in confidence. My child learns a great deal through play. Cheryl offers a family orientated, nurturing and caring place to grow through each phase!

Cheryl has supported me as my child has to gone through the various phases ... learning to walk and talk, interacting with others, starting nursery school and most recently toilet training - 100% success!

I can’t rate Cheryl highly enough - she’s pretty awesome!

Oh my god I nearly cried there Lisa 💞xx

My lo loves going to Cheryls and has done since the day she started over a year ago. She is really caring and takes each child's needs and demands into consideration. I can't imagine my daughter going anywhere else.
