About Me

I am a registered childminder (registered with the Care Inspectorate) operating in Ladywell, Livingston. I am married, with three children - one son at university and a son and daughter in Primary School. We also have a very friendly dog who has the best temperament around children.

I live in a quiet area with a safe, enclosed back garden for kids to run around in. I do drop offs and pick ups from Harrysmuir primary school and local nurseries.

I take minded children to local playgroups and toddler groups. I make the most of the facilities we have here in Livingston - local soft play areas, the large parks, and the library.

Those of us in the household who are eligible, have been vaccinated against covid-19.

I am registered as a partner provider with West Lothian Council and am available to provide funded Early Learning and Childcare for eligible 2,3 and 4 year olds.

My Experience

I have been registered as a childminder since 2007, prior to that I worked in a local playgroup. I have a degree in psychology and a postgraduate in education. My experience is extensive and varied - including working with children with special needs and several years with Beaver Scouts. As I have personal and professional experience with children with special needs, I would be happy to mind a child with additional needs.

My Qualifications

I have a degree in psychology, a postgraduate in educational research and an SVQ in Children and Young People.

I have up to date first aid, child protection and food hygeine certificate, among other training. I am committed to continued professional development and my certificates are all avaliable for prospective clients to view.
