About Me

Welcome to SJ Childminding. My name is Samantha Rankin and I live with my husband and our two girls, born in 2014 and 2017. We moved to Wollaston when our first born was 9 months old and we love our little village and its friendly community. Myself and my assistant, Gayle Sharp, have many years experience working with children aged 0-11 in both a health and educational capacity.

My Experience

My background as a primary school teacher means I have had the opportunity to work with all primary aged year groups, including Early Years and have a particular passion for music which I taught for 2 years across all year groups before leaving the profession. The decision to leave teaching was not an easy one, but the decision to watch my children grow and enjoy their milestones, whilst still being able to do what I love is what lead me to decide to become a childminder. I am now able to combine my love of teaching and child development whilst establishing a solid relationship with the individual children in my care as opposed to a class of 30. Gayle’s experience as a Nursery Nurse and working for the Paediatric Health Visiting team means she has a wealth of knowledge and skills within early development and health.

My Qualifications

Our qualifications and training include;

• BA Honours Degree in Learning & Teaching
• GTP - Qualified Teacher Status
• Foundation Degree in Learning & Teaching
• BTEC National Diploma in Early Years
• Prevent Training (Radicalisation)
