About Me

I AM REGISTERED WITH THE NORTHERN BOARD AND AM FULLY INSURED AS A CHILDMINDER. I AM HAPPILY MARRIED, WITH 3 LOVELY GIRLS OF MY OWN. WE LIVE ALMOST A MILE IN TO THE COUNTRY, IN A LOVELY SETTING. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED LOOKING AFTER CHILDREN, AND HOPE SOME DAY TO GO INTO FOSTERING WHEN MY OWN LITTLE ONE IS OLDER.
I AM FIRM BUT FUN, I LIKE CHILDREN TO ENJOY THEIR TIME WITH ME, BUT THEY ARE TAUGHT MANNERS AND TO SHARE AND TO HAVE FUN BUT ALSO TO RESPECT ME AND THE OTHER CHILDREN AND THE TOYS AND ESPECIALLY BOOKS THAT ARE PROVIDED. CHILDREN ARE OUR MOST PRECIOUS POSSESSION AND SHOULD ONLY BE ENTRUSTED TO SOMEONE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH AND WHO GAINS YOUR TRUST AND WHO YOUR CHILD BONDS WITH..I HOPE THAT CAN BE ME.

My Experience

I HAVE BEEN CHILDMINDING FOR OVER 27 YEARS AND HAVE 3 WONDERFUL DAUGHTERS, 2 WHO LIVE IN ENGLAND AND 1 OF 11 WHO WAS OUR LITTLE SURPRISE ... I HAVE GATHERED EXPERIENCE OVER THE YEARS IN BOTH PRE-SCHOOL AND OLDER CHILDREN, AM INSURED, PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID AND CHILD PROTECTION TRAINED. I AM INSPECTED ANNUALLY THROUGH THE EARLY YEARS TEAM WHICH GIVE US OUR REGISTRATION CERTIFICATES.

My Qualifications

AT SCHOOL I COMPLETED A CITY AND GUILDS ' HOME ECONOMICS FOR FAMILY AND COMMUNITY CARE' COURSE WHICH SPECIALISED IN PRE-SCHOOL CHILDREN, BUT GAVE ME EXPERIENCE IN BOTH NURSERY AND PLAYGROUP SURROUNDINGS, AS WELL AS WORKING WITH HANDICAPPED CHILDREN. I STARTED KIRKINRIOLA EARLY YEARS IN 1995 AND WAS ON THE BOARD OF GOVERNORS FOR THE THE SCHOOL FOR 8 YEARS. PERSONALLY I PREFER EXPERIENCE AS HAVING RAISED 3 CHILDREN OF MY OWN, I FEEL IS FAR MORE SUBSTANTIAL THAN A PIECE OF PAPER. I HAVE ATTENDED CHILD PROTECTION AND PAEDIATRIC FIRST AID COURSES.
