About Us

**Currently Fully Booked** (Shoebox Cafe Childminding, Glencarse) Please enquire for future places from Sept 2018.
Hi! My name is Samantha and I offer friendly, caring, patient, fun and dedicated care for your little ones. I am a fully OFSTED registered childminder and Primary School Teacher with over 12 years experience in Early Years and Primary education. I have a BEd Degree, I'm an active member of PACEY, fully insure, First Aid & Safeguarding trained and have a full driving license.
I am a new mum myself and now offer childminding and private tuition to local families. My gorgeous son Thomas (now nearly 2) and I look forward to welcoming your little ones into our home for lots of fun!
I deliver a very creative Early Years curriculum to all children under the age of 5 with a Cafè theme to encourage positive healthy eating, manners, knowledge of a huge variety of foods whilst developing their fine motor skills through cooking. I deliver engaging, motivating and creative learning experiences, differentiated for all abilities and aged children in my care. I provide all families with learning journals of your child’s developments during their time with me. I strive to provide excellent assessment feedback as being a parent myself, those milestones are precious.
In keeping with the Early Years Curriculum, I provide many different indoor and outdoor activities such as; PE (FUNS-Fundamental skills), sensory play, drama, puppets, den building, bouncy castle fun, singing & dancing, dressing up, arts & crafts, story time, music, sand and water play and free play.
My groups are small, with my son included, to ensure high quality care at all times as well as encouraging friendly social skills.
The children and I enjoy the surrounding woodland in Glencarse for daily muddy walks and adventures. We are very lucky to be situated in beautiful location! We attend local playgroups, community childminding group events and activities in the surrounding areas of Perth and Kinross!

For more in depth learning support, I offer private one to one tutoring lessons outside of my childminding hours for children aged 5 to 16.

If you're interested, I look forward to hearing from you. Take Care, Samantha :)
