About Me

Hello! My name is Lisa. I am a registered childminder living in the Murieston area of Livingston. I have 2 children age 20 and 14. I have been registered since July, 2006.

My home/back garden backs on to the school playing field at Williamston Primary thus I am a maximum walk of 3 minutes to Williamston Nursery/ Primary School.

I am a 5 minute (10 if strolling!) walk from Livingston South Train Station.

My hours of working are 6.30 a.m. to 5/5.30 p.m. Monday to Thursday and to 5 p.m. on Fridays.

Prior to childminding I worked for 10 years as a Crime Analyst for Lothian and Borders Police then 10 years as an Office Manager/Paralegal for the Defenders Office.

I am well trained on safety, fire safety and child protection.

My Experience

I have gained invaluable experience from being a mother to my two wonderful children, 1 boy and 1 girl. I have also cared for children of a variety of ages namely from 3 months to 14 years. All good fun!

I don't know who enjoys it more, myself, my daughter, my son (not that he is around as much now) or my partner who often comes home from work to a mad house. My daughter has loved having all her 'friends' coming to play over the years and now wishes to follow in my footsteps, along with coaching for gymnastics. My son is in full time employment, is fully Pvg disclosed (enhanced), holds many coaching badges for football/sports and is first aid trained. My long term partner Steve has a fully enhanced Pvg disclosure and is also first aid trained.

Many of my mindees have been with me for years, from babies, through to nursery and onto school. We are one big childminding family. I couldn't ask for more.

My Qualifications

I have completed many training courses namely First Aid, Pediatric First Aid, CPR First Aid, Child Protection, Child Abuse and Neglect, Food Hygiene, Multicultural Play, Environmental Play, Respect Me - Anti Bullying, Health and Nutritional Guidelines, Signalong (sign language), Understanding ADHD, Understanding Autism and various Pre Birth to Three courses to name but a few. This list will continue to grow as I feel you can never do enough training.

I am currently studying SVQ 3 Social Services (Children and Young People) Level 7 via open learning.

My Availability

I work Monday to Thursday 6.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. and Friday 6.30 a.m. to 5 p.m

All enquiries are welcome.

Lisa Macdonald has been looking after my youngest son since he was 7months old, she has been amazing with him in every aspect of choldminding and helped him with speech and numbers, sharing toys and being a polite little boy. Lisa also helped with him taking his first steps. I cannot fault lisa at all, she has been the best minder I have ever used.
