About Me


Hello my name is Joanna and I am registered childminder, living in Colquhoun Park - Bearsden.
I use to be a teacher and have really good experience with working with children. I love kids and it's a privilege for me to work as childminder.
I am mother of two amazing children 12 and 8years , I am also happy married to my husband Andrew.

I have a really nice and safe playroom,with ensuite bathroom, specially design for children who I look after.
My service is focused on providing high-quality home based childcare service and customer satisfaction. I will do everything I can to meet your expectations.

I have current safeguarding as a mother of 2 children and have attended a vast range of training courses with the Scottish Childminder Association and many professional practitioners which have extended my childcare knowledge and my understanding of the government expectations from a professional childcare provider.

With the GIRFEC approach, I follow The Scottish Government’s Early Years Framework for each child learning development needs. I do a risk assessment in a daily basis in every room that children are using and also with all the toys. This according to the 8 indicators of wellbeing, otherwise known as the SHANARRI, implemented by the Scottish government.

I provide healthy snacks and I also encourage children to participate by helping to prepare some of their own meals and teach them about food that we are eating, where it comes from and how to store and dispose of the waist in an environment friendly way.

My house is at a walking distance from couple of schools and nurseries. I have a beautiful park in front of m house and also, I am located right across from gorgeous Colquhoun Park where children enjoying to go, play and feed swans and ducks. I also visit our local playgroups and childminding groups regularly when children get to meet and interact with other children and share some group activities.

I make sure Children receive consistent one-to-one attention whilst enjoying interaction with others
I discuss regularly children development and needs with their parents to see what support they do need at each step of their development. I appreciate you as the parents are the most important people in your child’s life and therefore will consult with you on all aspects of your child’s care.
I am very flexible to meet parents needs and offer a settling period according to children requirement to ensure the best transition period for children and parents.
My service is open Monday to Thursday from 8am to 6pm and Friday 8am to 5pm.
I use the SCMA contract forms for all my paperwork such as contract etc.

My Experience

Below are the latest reviews for Joanna B. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our daughter who is 6 now, was in Joanna's care since she was 10 months.
Her and Joanna developed amazing bond, she was cared with true love and understanding, always extremely accommodating and warm, high standard home to home environment in Jo's service.
Isla is 6 now and although she is not cared by Joanna anymore, still visits her and sometimes stays for sleepovers, my daughter is very close to her children.
I would recommend Joanna, to anyone who is looking for high quality, home to home, fulfilled with love and care environment.

Joanna has taken care of our three year old daughter. We are leaving her only because our chosen school, Glasgow Academy at Milngavie starts from 3 years. We are a doctor and civil engineer and had difficulty finding great childcare when we moved to Bearsden.
Joanna has been extraordinary. She adores children and is genuinely caring. I know if Seren gets upset for any reason she will be cared for and cuddled in our absence. Her children and husband are also fantastic with her. She has a lovely, clean home opposite a beautiful park.
We have no reservation in recommending Joanna unreservedly. We were so lucky to have found her.
