My Summary

Scotland Care Inspectorate Registered

About Me

Hi, my name is Sam, I am fully registered with the Scottish Care Commission.

I am a mother of five ranging from 30 to 9.

I live in central Aberdeen, within a ten-minute walk to most of the large parks and a 15-minute walk from the beach. I have a car so I can take the children to many different play areas and parks.

I have a springer spaniel, who has been well associated with children since he was eight weeks old. We spend lots of time at the beach or in parks playing with him.

I like to run a friendly, caring, warm and inviting, professional service, making sure that the best care is given to the child/children and the parent/carer.

I run a fully inclusive service that is open to everyone!

Daily activities will include, exploration and learning through play, painting, drawing, baking, dress play, reading and music. I also ensure that children get lots of outdoor stimulation, though, park visits, toddler groups, soft play and trips to the local beach.

Each day is different and stimulating, I try to ensure where ever possible days are child led, I am committed to ensuring that I offer a service that is second to none.

My Experience

I have been looking after and working with children for 30+ years.

I have worked with preschool children and been a PSA in primary school..

I have also worked in secondary schools with children aged 11-14, so I have vast experience of working with children and have raised five of my own, I know and understand the need to find a good childminder that you feel safe and comfortable with.

I have pulled together all of my experiences both as a mother and throughout my working life, so that I can offer an excellent, caring environment for your child/children.

I have worked with children with many different needs, ADHD, Autism, multiple food allergies and even some with severe, chronic illness.

My daughter was with Sam for a few months and I honestly can't praise her enough. Abigail settled in almost instantly and when at home was always talking about Sam and her son Ethan. Sam was just brilliant with her and you can clearly see just how much she enjoys being around children. Even the learning side of things I was amazed at how much Abi had learned in such a short time. Even myself spending time chatting with her, she is just such a lovely person, it puts you at ease when leaving your children with her. Even though Abigail is no longer there now I still keep in touch as she was so comfortalbe there she misses going now. I would definately recommend Sam to anyone who is looking for childminder. She is Awsome!!!
