About Me

Hi... My name is Elizabeth I live in Stirling/Cornton, Strathallan Park with my husband Dougie with our son Ross who is 12 and our friendly Cockapoo Daisy.

I provide a home from home setting in a clean, happy, caring, warm and friendly environment where we can be creative, have fun, play and learn together. I will be a positive role model and promote social skills, encouraging courteous behaviour and respect for others.

My Experience

I have been childminding since November 2014 and absolutely love it, the children just become part of the family. Over the years I have looked after children of varying ages from 5 month old babies to 12 year olds.

I think it is very important to get outdoors as much as we can, we love to visit the local parks to play and I have an annual pass for Briarlands Farm where we can enjoy a picnic and have a great day out. Even if its cold and wet outside we love to get our waterproofs on and get outdoors. The back garden is fully enclosed, we can relax and play safely with an abundance of toys.... including our very own bouncy castle.

While indoors we can spend time in the fantastic playroom doing arts and crafts, colouring in and having fun.

We go on outings to the Library, Kidz World, Adventure Planet, Dinom8 or to the Macrobert Centre/Vue to see a movie. Depending on how many kids I have we also go swimming. The children are never bored, we are always doing things to keep them occupied and having fun.

My daughter went to Elizabeth for several months and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough. Emily loved all the time she spent with Elizabeth. They did so many activities and spent lots of time going walks which emily loves. Elizabeth is so caring and make sure all of the kids in her care are happy and feel secure. I would recommend her to anyone looking for childcare.

Elizabeth has looked after my son for a few years now after school. She's a truly fantastic person who genuinely cares for all children in her company. This real care is obvious to both the children and parents alike. My son has thrived while under her care. She such a positive influence on the children and has hit the perfect balance between fun and following house rules and in doing so is teaching the children valuable life lessons.

My son loves his time with Elizabeth and her family. She provides a real home from home atmosphere for the children and her purpose-built playroom is fantastic. She's super-organised and very active with the children with lots trips out and special parties etc. Elizabeth really does go the extra mile. Kids are so precious and I'm delighted to have found someone I trust implicitly to care for my wee boy in my absence after school.

I cannot recommend Elizabeth highly enough. A true superstar!

Elizabeth has been a great help to us looking after our daughter.
Harley has been going to Elizabeth for about 6 months now and I couldn’t recommend her enough, she’s flexible, knowledgeable and Harley is very happy there, I always mention her name if someone tells me they are looking for childcare.
Her pick up and drop off service makes our lives so much easier too.

I have know Elizabeth for a few years and have started using her as a childminder for my 2 girls aged 10 & 9. I have found Elizabeth to be a very friendly, kind and caring person. She is very organised and her communication is excellent. My children absolutely love going to her lovely home and feel very cared for and looked after. I would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking for a childminder. Sharon
