About Me

I am a fully registered childminder living in Alness with my husband, we have 2 children a boy and a girl aged 11 and 15. I also have 2 grown up children. I am a member of the Scottish Childminding Association. At my last inspection by the SCSWIS last year I was graded Excellent, Excellent and Very Good (6 6 5).

I live in a quiet area of Alness with an enclosed garden where children can play safely, with lots of outdoor toys such as trampoline, little tikes hide and seek climbing frame, playhouse and swing. I welcome all children into my home and offer a safe, secure, welcoming and homely environment with lots of activities, stories and outdoor play.

I am happy to take preschool children to local playgroups playgroup/nursery times permitting. There is a small playpark very close to my home which we regularly go to. We also go a lot of walks roundabout.

I can pick up from Bridgend School and Local Nurseries and am happy to work through most of the school holidays.

I occasionally have extra spaces available for school age children through the school holidays.
