About Me


I am a funded provider for North Lanarkshire Council and so can provide the funded hours for 3yrs +

My name is Fiona Smith and my childminding business is called Muddy Puddles Childminding Services.

I have school holiday cover for all age groups due to most of my current children being term time summer holidays, October Week, Easter etc.

I am on holiday from 22nd June - 7th July.

I am able to supply the funded hours from NLC for 3 - 5 year olds. I will work with your child in the same way as a local authority nursery will, we attend groups which provide the opportunity for your child to socialise and we also do nativities at Christmas and celebrate lots of other events. I will provide them with a graduation when they are moving on to school.

I am a reliable, fun and sought after childminder.

I am a registered and insured and live in the Holytown Area.

I am a non smoker.

I am very flexible with regards to hours, as in the past I have worked with the police & social work so I will make myself available from very early in the morning until late evenings in order to provide a service for parents who work shifts and also do term time contracts.

I will provide a service to any age group and will cater my activities accordingly. I currently attend toddler groups and book bug / rhyme time. I am very active and like to keep busy with the children by going out to local parks, soft play areas, libraries and other educational places local to me. My house is fully equipped with toys, arts & crafts and learning tools and has a large secured back garden with lots of outdoor toys for all ages. I really enjoy baking and doing arts and crafts with the children I look after and they all enjoy it to.

My own child attends Christ The King Primary School in Holytown and he is 10.

The safety of the children is my number 1 priority - your children will love coming to Muddy Puddles Childminding Service and will have a great funfilled day with Fiona :-)
