About Me

Hi there ,
I'm Brenda and I have been a registered childminder with SCSWIS (Care Commission) for 10 years . I have 2 children of my own (aged 17 and 18 years)

We are a close family who enjoy lots of hobbies and activities on weekends.

I offer a friendly, safe, stimulating enviornment for all the children in my care .

My home is a smoke free environment .

I have a large enclosed garden to the rear with lots of outdoor toys including a 8ft trampoline & enclosure and a slide. I have lots of indoor toys,games,and books to suit all ages and stages of development. Arts n crafts is a favourite activity with the children.

Weather permitting , we enjoy outings to playparks, horses, country parks and adventures further afield during school holidays.
We visit toddlers and the library including " The Bookbug Sessions " weekly.
Bongo's soft play area is also a firm favourite , where we visit often , usually with other child minders and their minded children .

My Experience

For as far back as I can remember, I have enjoyed the company of children. Offering babysitting duties to family and friends. When I was blessed with my own 2 children I was on cloud nine. My home is always bustling with children and I wouldn't like it any other way. I get great satisfaction helping the children grow into confident little people. I have recently become a community childminder, helping families out when they need it most. As you can see from my grades from SCSWIS below, I take my childminding duties very seriously and keep up with all the relevant paperwork. The parents of my minded children have been absolutely wonderful in helping me to achieve my goals by filling in questionaires about my services and contributing to helping me succeed. I am also a member of SCMA .
