About Me

I offer 1140 hours funded childcare for 2 year olds and blended care from 3 years in connection with East Ayrshire Council.
Hi my name is Sharon McRoberts and I run Little Gigglers Childcare. I am a fully registered professional Community Childminder (SCSWIS). . I live in the village of Crookedholm, near Hurlford, 7 mins from Kilmarnock Collage, 1 mile from Kilmarnock and 5 mins from M77 .

I am a member of The Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA) and have public liability insurance in place. I offer a fully comprehensive childminding service. My daughter is registered as my assistant to help care for the children with myself.

In my care my aim is for children to be happy, safe and growing in mind, body and self esteem.
My home is light and spacious with many exciting activities for children.
We have a fully enclosed garden and decking area.
Crookedholm park is on our Road.

Variety of activities including role play, crafts, music and cooking/baking.
Hot and homemade food daily.
The children have full access to a large range of age related toys with space for quiet times.
A laptop is available should you need one for homework (fully supervised).
We visit local toddlers, library and play areas on a weekly basis so the children are mixing with other children of similar ages.
We go to Book Bug weekly where we enjoy music and rhyme time.

We like everyone to feel at home here and if you choose to join us I am sure you will be very happy.

I can also offer 11400 hours childcare for 2 year olds and blended care from 3 years funding in connection with East Ayshire Council.
