About Me

I am 30yrs old and live with my husband and 2 sons. We moved to Edinburgh from Yorkshire August 2011. I was previously registered with Ofsted as a Childminder in Yorkshire after 7yrs as a Qualified Dental Nurse. It has always been my dream to work with children and after having my son I decided to start childminding. It is my aim to provide a safe, warm, caring environment where your child will also have lots of fun and I will work following the guidelines. I am also currently in the process of studying the BA Childhood practice and a member of the NDNA.

I live in a large semi-detatched house close to Longstone Primary School

My Experience

I have had many wonderful years working with children from 6mths old to 11yrs since registering with the Care Inspectorate in April 2012. The majority being in the early years age group. I was also registered with Ofsted prior to my move to Edinburgh. This also included caring for twin girls who we're under my care from being 6mths old. My daily activities involve playgroup, nursery and school drop offs, trips to the park, local farm and playcentres. I also ensure that during the time spent with children within my home we do arts + crafts, baking and gardening. As I also detail in my regular monthly newsletter I work with the children in different projects to encourage their development. I also have experience in working in children's nurseries.
