About Me

Hello... I am a former UHI IT Lecturer and a Care Inspectorate registered Childminder living in the Inshes area of Inverness. I have a full clean driving licence. I offer a welcoming, kind and caring environment with plenty of space to feel comfortable in whether it's the upstairs soft play room that doubles as a sensory/quiet room or in the downstairs play area or in the enclosed large garden with climbing and play equipment.

I have been Facilitating Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Courses (MBSR) for a number of years now in the public and private sector and use Mindfulness in every day life, including how I look after children by putting them at the centre of care. Play, emotional regulation and socialisation processes are at the core of what I offer

My Experience

I have had plenty hands on experience with 4 children having gone through Playgroup/Toddlers/Primary/Secondary Schools, I know it can be an anxious time for parents/carers whether it be first child or not. Communication is very important and I always make time to update parents and get parents/carers views on how things are progressing.

My Qualifications

I have a PVG disclosure and have
undertaken a preparatory course in childminding through SCMA as well as Child Protection Training and a 2 day Paedriatric First Aid Course. I have a min of 10 CPD hours per month for training. I have a welcoming setting for children who may be on the spectrum. I am also a Mindful Psychotherapist.

My Availability

My hours are 8.00am - 6.00pm (extended hours are available - please ask). I offer settling in sessions so that the child/ren can feel happy with the new surroundings and environment.

I have spaces for under 5's at the moment.

I am commissioned with Highland Council to offer funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year old children. Please contact for availability of hours.
