About Me

I'm a very active & young minded women with a loving caring attitude who likes to keep fit & my hobbies are swimming, walking, canoeing, coasteering, abseiling, yoga, basically love the outdoors life, i love music especially live music, theatre & dressing up & face make-up for Halloween.

I lived in Fort William for over 30yrs, decided to move to Glasgow to live a new life on the water with my beautiful retriever dog, in a gorgeous big houseboat, did it for 2yrs absolutely loved the experience, hated city life so moved to Alexandria so I could be by my lochs, hills and boats.

Now live with my lovely fiance who is called Ritchie, he helps promote new bands, writes reviews and does photography for big bands, also works in Glasgow virgin media, he's away from home alot.
We bought a house, completely renovated it, it is all spanking new, getting it all eady for welcoming all ages of children.

My Experience

My experince firstly is having my children, I did a excellent job of bringing them up so I decided To go into childcare since I love children. I had my own business as registered childminder for 20years looked after over 50 children from birth-16yrs, my dream was to be a midwife but leaving my children was just too hard, so having children all ages again in my life was wonderful.

I am a very loving caring huggy childminder, lots of fun & laughter.
We did alot of outdoor activities, lots of trips, constant playtime, learning, teaching, reading, dancing, arts, crafts, nomatter what you do with children, everyday is a learning process.

I don't do computer or much TV unless a wee treat to all cuddle up and watch a movie if a child isn't feeling to great. Hugs, love, interaction and communication is the key to a happy child.

Ofcourse I grew wonderful bonds with the parents, to give them the feeling of trust, respect, confidentiality, honesty, reliability & let them see they are leaving their children inthe best care, being a mum I understand how important that is.

I have passed all my interview accessments from care commission just recently and have passed most of my certificates needed, the only one I'm waiting to do is my pediatric first aid which I'm desperate to do but has been a struggle with the pandemic. Hope to have that booked and place ASAP.

I have plenty written references, phone numbers, emails to contact as many parents as need be to give you peace of mind.
