About Me

Grade 5 childminder. I have some Adhoc, Full or Part time spaces available also holiday cover only available. School or nursery drop off & collection in my 8 seater minibus which the children love, this enables myself to take all of the children to various places & we are not limited to space.
Funded hours becoming available soon.
I will be working in partnership with the Falkirk Council from April 2020.

The school area I cover is from Dennyloanhead to Dunipace. Feel free to contact myself if you are not sure if I cover your school.

Registered with the Care inspectorate & fully insured.

My house is on route to the motorway (Singers Place) making this easier for yourself to drop off & collect your child.

I take the children outdoors to play in the local parks and go walking in the woods where the children can let their imagination go wild and can explore under safe supervision. The children also enjoy parent & toddlers where they mix with other children.

We go to Wellsfield Farm Park on a regular basis which I pay for.
When we are not participating in outdoor activities I have a playroom with various toys, books, arts & crafts or if it’s been a busy day & the children would like to relax on the sofa they can.

I will ask the children on a regular basis what they would like to do and ensure each child is included.

My garden is fully enclosed and there is a park next to my house. I offer a home from home environment.

I have a 11 year old daughter & have been with my husband for 21 years.

My Experience

I have been a childminder since 2017. I have nieces and nephews whom I have watched over the past 23 years giving me years of experience of ensuring children are happy & safe.

I enjoy working with the children & seeing them develop. I am also very active with the children & love joining in with their activities.

I am aware this can be a daunting time for the children & parents meeting a person they do not know. We would arrange to meet for a conversation & if you & your child are happy we would arrange a day where your child would be with myself for 1 hour or more before they start, I would work with you to ensure your child is comfy.

Below are the latest reviews for Joyce. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

I just love knowing how happy my little girl is when she knows she is going to Joyce’s and when she comes home later and tells me of her time with Joyce. I wouldn’t hesitate to have Joyce look after her in the future. The children’s well-being is clearly paramount and I appreciate the professionalism demonstrated by Joyce in her communication with myself as a parent but also her amazing rapport with the children. Her set-up is just right for nurturing the development of inquisitive and creative little minds. I appreciate all Joyce has done for me and my little girl and would highly recommend her services. You just know your child is in the best hands when in her care.

by SBA about Joyce on 08/06/2020

My 2 daughters have been going to Joyce for number of weeks now and both enjoy their time with her very much! She is very professional and organised, with the girls often coming home with things they have made or tales about where they have gone that day. Joyce has a great set up at home with toys, activities and 2 little fluffy guinea pigs, but she will also take the opportunity to go out places time / weather permitting. The girls enjoy their mornings with Joyce & as a working mum it’s great to be able to go to work knowing they are being looked after the way Joyce looks after them :)
