About Me

My name is Ashleigh, my childminding service is called second home childminding and I am based in saltcoats. I have a total of 11 years experience - 5 years working in childcare, caring solely for children in their own home in the Glasgow area I decided to become a Registered childminder in my own home. I am married to Martin, we have children of our own and we have a female dog called poppy living with us.

I love working with children and find it exciting, I am polite and have good manners, I am well organised, patient, and creative I am always smiling and encouraging children with everything to meet their needs and wants.

My Experience

I have 11 years experience earned between a childcare company based in Glasgow, for 5 years One Parent Families Scotland as a registered, sessional childcare giver. During this time I have gained experience of working in creshes, with children and newborns as young as one month old. I have also worked with many families within their home setting, from ages of fourteen months to fourteen years old.

I also have been childminding for 6 years and have successfully passed my inspections. I have established routines quickly, and all children so far have settled in very well. I have recently upgraded to a larger 7 seat car to accommodate further pick ups and drop offs.

I am looking forward to many more years of childminding.

I also have family experience of being with children through my nieces and nephew, and now have a children of my own

Ashleigh is a lovely person and great with kids. My son went to Ashleigh when i was working a few days a week and he had a brilliant time. She kept me informed about his day and was polite and friendly towards myself. I would definitely recommend Ashleigh to everyone who need a brilliant child care provider.

Ashleigh is a great childminder she is very professional but friendly with it and puts parents and children at ease.
