About Me

Do you want a low cost fun place for your child to be? Childminders are generally cheaper than nurseries or day care . I live in a quiet street on the edge of Eastrigg Nature reserve -check out Countryfile for May 20 2012 to see my back door play ground - on the outskirts of Lockerbie in West Acres.I am on the town bus route and 50 meters from the Lockerbie to Dumfries bus route with a stop in both directions at the top of the street . As a trained Nursery nurse and registered food provider I provide an all inclusive childcare package with no hidden costs .I have no more than four children at a time in my light fun filled home.There are outings, lunch , snacks, and projects everyday. Planned summer /holiday outings for 2016 /17 include Sandyhills beach, Dalscone,Drummuir icecream, Drummelzer tower house ,the park ,growing our own plants.............etc all included in the hourly rate NOT EXTRA .The children and I are trying to grow some of our own food . I for one am delighted with what the chiIdren have managed -I've been a complete failure as I am not that green fingered .I am open 48 weeks a year.......My last inspection gave me a list of Fives and Sixes all very good marks .If you want some place fun for your children give me a phone. As a registered Childminder I am inspected by the Care Inspectorate . I am also registered with the Scottish Childminding Association . I working closely with local child minding groups ,playgroups and music/messy play classes so there is a selection of fun things for the children to do.
