About Me

My name is Benny Sanio and i am a Registered Child Minder with the Care Inspectorate here in Scotland as well as a member of the Scottish Child minding Association (SCMA). I am very friendly, easy going, organised and i take genuine interest in people. I live in a mid terraced house with a garden in Dalry with my girls; 10 & 8.

My Experience

I have over 9 years experience looking after both my children and other children. My remit is to ensure that the kids i mind are happy, confident and resilient. We take part in different developmental activities (where the weather permits) as well as library visitation and play lots of games. I currently have spaces for drop off and pick up from Dalry Primary School and other morning and evening spaces as well. I can also mind children during school holidays (full time and part time) and i'm happy to provide drinks and snacks where possible. I also have a Public Liability Insurance.

I also follow the government guidelines, in terms of social distancing and undertake deep cleaning of my premises regularly. I ensure that the children in my care are safe, healthy and respected. I have also updated my policies to reflect the new rules on social distancing and new ways of working pro-COVID.

I have an M.Sc in Human Resource Management and have worked as a HR Manager for two years before resigning from my job in August 2019. I am currently studying part time for a degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy (once a week lectures) at The University of Edinburgh. I also volunteer with the Health in Mind as a peer one-to-one support.

Benny has been looking after my two children for 6 months now. I am extremely happy with care she provides. Although they are in her care for just a short time (2 hours, few days a week) they still visit library and playgrounds. Benny is focused, observant and mindful person. I highly recomend her.
