About Me

Lanark childminding is childminding service that provides quality childcare for children from birth up to fourteen years. I have been a registered childminder since 2007 and continue to undertake training in line with up to date legislative 'Best Practice' and Standards set by The Scottish Care Commission.
Children who use this service learn by play and experience whilst attending a flexible childcare service that promotes 'Learning Through Play',
I am also a partner provider with South Lanarkshire Council offering 1140hrs of free childcare for eligible 3 and 4 yr olds
I have 2 West Highland terriers (Sonny and Buddy) who are very well natured and have been brought up with children around, the children often enjoy walks with them up to the park
I do my best to meet the needs of parents this may include picking up from home when possible to try help busy households. For New parents I provide a welcome pack I have toys for all age groups and multicultural...
I try to take the children on outings to Dynamic Earth, Riverside Museum, Peoples palace or Cinema ..weather permitting i may take them out to Lanark Loch , over to the park at Biggar or down to dobbies garden centre for ice creams, let the children see all the fish and play on the swings etc
I have just had an unannounced visit today (21/07/15) from the SCSWIS and have been informed my service has scored very good on all points :)

Originally started using Ann when schools closed due to covid and as I am key worker, Josh was apprehensive but on arrival was pleased to see a friend from his class who had just also started attending Anns
Ann kept me updated throughout the day informing me what he had been doing, he had helped build a gazebo in the garden and a bench and table where the children later sat outdoors drawing and had lunch outdoors, Ann tried her best to keep the children outdoors throughout the summer
Ann had plenty toys in her garden suitable for all age groups and also had a Nintendo and PS4 although time on them is limited
As we came out of lockdown Ann has taken kids to local parks, down to garden centre and taught the kids the importance of hand hygiene and social distancing
I have been impressed with Ann as not only has she looked after Josh but shes helped me as a single parent to find other help both financially and emotionally through this hard time
I can honestly say Ann supports a full family and cares about all those in her setting

Well what can I say apart from Ann is an amazing child carer she goes beyond what she needs to do for your child and not only your child she has been a rock for me as a mum heading back into work after bringing my family up and even when you need to leave as school is starting she is still there to help and support in any why she can my son has enjoyed the summer break with her and looks forward to going again when there's school holidays and I'm working highly recommend Ann and can't wait to see her again :-) Thank you once again Ann xx

We contacted Ann to look after our 11 month old baby while we were at a wedding in New Lanark and she was brilliant. She looked after Jack from 1pm right up until late in the evening, taking him out in the day and putting him to bed in the hotel.

As we’re not from the area she invited us round to her house the morning of the wedding so we could see her facilities and certificates, and we met her husband Stuart, who was also lovely.

They were really helpful with everything, provided great care and most importantly clearly love spending time with children.

Thanks so much Ann & Stuart

Ann provided a first class service for our 10 month old baby twins. She was flexible with regard arrangements and kept us regularly updated on daily activities, progress etc..
Loved all the special little touches.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Ann to other patents.
