About Me

Hi, I live in Foxdale Drive,Bonnybridge and I have l lived here 14yrs since the estate was built. I stay here with my husband Derek, 2 children Jordan 17yrs and Nina who is 15yrs old.

I have been a registered Childminder since 2006 and I have looked after babies from 3 months until late on in primary school.

I love how everyday is different in my job and you can accommodate the children's needs and wants.

I like the children to feel safe and secure in my home and feel that it is a home from home for them.

I have many toys, arts & crafts and educational games. I offer a nurturing environment for children to have fun and play in. I also love being outside at parks, local woods and also use the local toddler groups and soft play.

It is a pleasure to see the children enjoy themselves and have fun at all the places we go.

I am graded a 5 (Very Good) from the Care Inspectorate. I am also a member of the SCMA who I have Public Liability Insurance with. I also have a clean driving license and a 7 seater car to take the children out on our daily adventures.

My Experience

Have 12yrs experience as a Registered Childminder.

My daughter has been with Violet since she was 7 months old. Initially I wanted to have a child minder look after her while I went back to work, so she would have the one to one attention and affection she would usually get from her granny’s or aunties. Violet came highly recommended by two different people.

For the past 2 and a bit years Violet and her family’s love and care for our daughter has been invaluable. Our daughter has experienced fun filled days in and outdoors. She’s come home boasting the most delightful art pieces. She’s baked and eaten delightful treats. She’s made lovely friends with children at the local toddlers group that Violet takes them to on a weekly basis.

Violet has assisted us with every milestone our daughter has achieved in her early years such as giving up her dummy, walking, talking, potty training and now her transition to nursery school.

Thank you Violet and you’re wonderful family for welcoming our daughter into your home and being the best support and minder we could ever want for our daughter. Thank you for being the support we as a family have needed during the past few years. We appreciate all you’ve done.

Both my daughters have attended violet since they were toddlers. They enjoyed being with violet and I know they were well cared for and she provided a home from home environment. They did lots of activities and made good friends in their time there. I highly recommended Violet she is a lovely, bubbly, caring person who will always have your child best interests at heart.

My daughter went to Violet for just under a year and it’s been an absolute pleasure. I felt comfortable and trusted Violet straight away, she made it a home from home for my little girl. Nothing is too much for Violet and she would do anything she could for the kids. Thanks violet for everything, I couldn’t recommend you enough!

Thank you so much Lucy. It has been a pleasure working with you. I cannot Thank you enough for this review....going to miss you both loads. Wishing you all the best for the future. Xx

Our daughter was looked after by Violet for 2 years. She was provided with a nurturing and stimulating environment with lots of experiences to play and develop. She thoroughly enjoyed attending and built a fantastic relationship with her new childminder very quickly. She has certainly been supported throughout her time at Violets and this has helped to prepare her for her next big milestone, big girl nursery! Thank you from us all! Xx
