I am 52 years old, been married for 26 years to my husband Tony who works for Stirling Council I have a family of two Girls aged 21 in April 24 & 14 years. I love To spend time with the kids getting involved in all sorts of activities and Projects, We have no Pets, however, when possible visit the wildlife center, safari parks, etc

I also love my arts and crafts and love the kids to show off their creativity with the use of Play-Doh/modeling/baking clay and loads more. My garden is a kid's playground they love it and we aim to make the most of it in good weather.

I am A grade 5. Every child has individual needs that are catered for.

It is a tough job being a parent and they don't come with a guidebook, but let me take that responsibility off your hands while you enjoy some adult company and earn a living at the same time. I have a full 45 years of dealing with nieces nephews and now great-nieces, and nephews. And I enjoy every minute of it Which is why childminding is my chosen career.

My 5 year old son, who can be quite shy initially, has enjoyed being looked after by Annmarie from the very start and always looks forward to his stays. Annmarie provides a caring enriching environment with lots of fun activities that encourage development.

Thank you Victoria I have been locked out for ages now hence the late response.

Anne Marie is very great with kids. They go outdoors to soft plays, musical class etc... which is great for toddlers development. She also spend time with them doing crafts, free play at home etc... Great area to play at her house too. My wee one loves it even if she hasn't been there for long. She often say Anne's name at home when I say we are going to play. She definitely loves her and I really appreciate everything you are doing for and with her. Great childminder.
