About Me

My name is Louise. I live in Broughty Ferry beside the castle. I have a 3 bedroom house and have set the lower level out for childminding. I am a single mum and I live here with my 8 year old son.

I offer 2 snacks throughout the day and a cooked or packed meal at lunch time to save you packing a lunch for your child. I also pay for all play groups, outings and clubs.

We make use of the local community. Broughty Ferry Library, the beach, all local parks, the life boat shed, the railway station and of course the castle.

I have a Ford C- Max fitted with emergency assistance and we go in the car to have fun days out in Fife and Arbroath on in service days.

I'm willing to take part time children and don’t charge a retainer fee for students or children.

My Experience

I have experience and qualifications for dealing with Autism, ADHD and Aspergers.

No matter which age or stage your child is at, I will assess them with my starting points and add next steps to their Individual Learning Journey as needed.

I use the Baby's Days software which allows you to gain access to photos, activities and daily diaries in accordance with your child's development.

Please remember to take primary school catchment areas into consideration when looking for a childminder. Your baby will form a bond with your childminder. Having to change childminders before the early school years is a heartbreak for all concerned.

SVQ in Working with Children and Young People in progress at 67%
First Aid
Basic Food and Hygiene
Child Exploitation and Online Safety
Child Neglect
Infection Control

Going back to work and leaving my wee boy (age 11 months) filled me with dread but Louise made this whole process so much easier. Now my son is 2 and has built up such a close bond with Louise, sometimes it’s a struggle to get him to leave at the end of the day! We know we can trust her to keep him safe and we really appreciate the communication and photos which keep us updated throughout the day. He clearly has a great time at Broughty Babies and is exposed to lots of different experiences and learning activities. Our son is also very fond of Louise’s 7 year old son - he likes to talks about them both fulla lot at home.
I am so thankful that we found such a reliable, caring and genuine childminder.

We have used Louise(Lou Lou ) of broughty babies for the best part of 4 years.we found her very trustworthy,reliable polite with a great sense of humour everything you could ask for,she was always taking the boys out on day trips which the boys couldn’t wait to tell us about at night.would also get daily pics and updated about what was for lunch etc
Louise wasn’t just a childminder to us she was a friend,which made it all the harder to leave but buying our first house forced the issue.
Louise would go out her way for the boys and for that we will be forever grateful.

Louise has been our child's child minder for 2 1/2 years. Are child also goes to nursery but felt the bond she has with Louise has helped her transition from home to care. She is attentive, patient, and reinforces behavioural boundaries in a positive way. We feel our child is more emotionally secure and has developed so well in various areas of her learning due to Louise's influence. We highly recommend her.

Louise has been our childminder since August 2015 when I returned to work full time. Our oldest wee boy had just turned 1 and instantly we felt like we had made the right choice. Now nearly 4 years later she looks after our 2 year old 3 full days a week and our 4 year old before and after nursery. She always keeps us well informed through out the day with snacks, lunch, activities and also sends us photos and videos which I think is a lovely touch. I really couldn’t have asked for a better childminder which makes me sad to be leaving Broughty Ferry! My boys are going to miss “Lou Lou” so much, she has been such a big part of their lives over the years! We will definitely be keeping in touch :)

Louise has been caring for my son since he was 4months old (now 13mobths old) and has been a fabulous source of advice and support throughout his time with her. She encourages him to learn new skills for example hand/eye coordination, interacting with others and clearlyrespects the routine put in place by parents. Most importantly my boys face absolutely lights up to see Louise and he clearly dotes on her little boy.

She has provided a new Mum with the absolute reassurances I so desperately needed at such a delicate time of returning to work
