About Me

Hi i am 46 and have 2 children of my own (22 and 19, both are still living at home but work every day and are not around much now but they are used to children being in their home .,) I have been a registered childminder for 12 yrs but have been childminding for total of 24.. and i am a N.N.E.B qualified nursery nurse. I have had at least 27 of experience of working with children and supervising crèches ) I live in the west end (broomhill) ,of glasgow.There is never a shortage of things to do in the west end!!. I am a VERY friendly,flexible ,childminder and i try to suit everyones needs. I go to toddlers ,libraries,music classes, bounce and rhyme,soft play,parks etc and during summer(if we get any sunshine) i may go on trips to places of interest...usually on public transport because the children love that. we play in garden and local parks , i'm a great believer that children learn through play and it's mostly child led , i like them to use their imagination. My garden is small, but just big enough for babies and toddlers to have a lot of fun , be it on the slides , in water table, sand pit or toys we take out in when weather is good, we practically live outside ;)
I have business insurance for my car and car seats for every stage.. We also have two very friendly cats at home, one is getting older but i feel it's important to teach children all about respecting animals, so they soon learn not to disturb them when they are sleeping;). Anything else you want to ask just drop me an email and i'd love to chat
My childminding business is simply a home from home environment which i feel is great for babies and toddlers as it makes the transition from their home to mine a lot easier, and settle quicker in my experience due to it being like a one to one
It's usually the parents that struggle to leave their child more than the child being upset , i totally understand how this feels, and this is why i chose to childmind as it meant i could look after my own children at home , they said they had a great childhood ( thankfully ;))
My care inspectorate reports are available online,i have recently had my inspection and received all 5s again ;-)
