Hello, my name is Jane.

Please consider me when searching for the right childminder for you and your child/children. I am SMCA/CARE INSPECTORATE trained and registered and have been minding Children of all ages for many years. I am a Mum and a Granny and very 'hands on' Auntie.

I am available for school drop off and collection which includes, where possible, the child's clubs/activities after school.

Please request my HAPPY DAY CARE welcome pack which has lots of info including HDC aims and training etc. I can forward this to you via email

I am registered for childcare tokens

My HAPPY DAY CARE offers a safe, happy and stimulating environment where your child's opinion, hopes and concerns are respected.

All activities at Happy Day Care are agreed with the children (depending on age and stage of development)

I am keen to promote outdoor activities and being based in Finnieston is ideal - we have many trips to local places of interest and various local play parks/children's wood/community garden/ local playgroups, libraries and sports at Kelvin Hall.

Finnieston is also well situated for the commuter - drop off and collection

I encourage parent/carers suggestions on how to develop my service via on the spot communication, through their Childs observation diary or the service evaluation

I offer flexible hours and affordable rates

I am registered with Food and Hygiene GCC to provide nutritious snacks
