About Me

Hi my name is Karen, I am a registered childminder living in the Inshes area of Inverness.. I live with my husband of 18 years and 3 girls aged 17, 14 and 12 and our 4 year old German shorthaired pointer - Tia. We live in a smoke free home. I have a full clean driving license and benefit from a 7 seater car. I offer a welcoming, homely, warm environment with plenty of activities to keep children occupied. I am within easy reach of toddler groups have easy access to parks.

My Experience

I have had plenty hands on experience from early days through toddler group to the exciting first days of nursery and primary school. With 3 children having gone through nursery I know it is an anxious time for parents/carers whether it be first child or not. Communication is very important and I will always make time to update parents and get parents/carers views on how things are progressing.

I have completed a prep course in childminding through SCMA covering child protection, meeting the needs of children and partnership with parents. I have completed an Autism Awareness course, also chld protection, first aid and food hygiene courses and have completed SVQ3 in Early childcare, learning and development. I am always looking to update my skills and will continue taking courses where available.
