Please note: Educational Freedom takes no responsibility for the accuracy of the information listed about each childminder.
We recommend caution and common sense when choosing a childminder.
Please do your own research and checks before employing a minder.
A childminder can not be legally responsible for providing home education for your child, however, it is acceptable for them to oversee 'homework'.
I am an ex IT Lecturer, now a Care Inspectorate Childminder in Inverness. I live in a large 3 bed-roomed house with a large garden. I would be delighted to have children come along and share in the experiences here at Messy Nessie Child Care for Home Education, it’s something that my present parents and I have discussed recently that they would like to provide.
I hold a full Paediatric First Aid Certificate, and attend all relevant training required by the Care Inspectorate and our local authority. I received 5’s across the board with the CI on my visit earlier this year.
I provide a compassionate, kind and engaging experience for your child and strive to ensure all children in my care feel comfortable and at ease. I have a dedicated soft play/sensory upstairs playroom and I also have a large outdoor area which is secure and fenced around, in order to provide the safest possible environment for the children and staff who attend my Childcare.
I have Full and Part Time vacancies available from 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. I offer care for children from birth to 16 years. I am also available for any additional requirements you have outside of the hours mentioned here.
I provide before and after school service for children local nurseries. Unfortunately I am unable to pick up and collect presently, however, I am looking for a suitable 7 seater vehicle so that I may provide this service.
I have a vast amount of experience working with children with specific requirements.
My setting is open five days a week and 50 weeks of the year. However I do occasionally work weekends which is by personal agreement only and not something I generally offer.
If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to discuss any requirements you may have that I are not covered above… or have a look at my website to see how I work with children in my care.
Many thanks for taking the time to read this…
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
*TERM TIME ONLY VACANCY FROM JULY 2017* I am a childminder in Ardler, Dundee, 10 minutes walk from Ardler Primary School. I have a BA degree in primary education. Until I started childminding in 2009 I worked as an education officer at Sensation science centre in Dundee. I am married and have 2 girl who were born in November 2008 and March 2011
All children are involved in regular outings; we often visit Clatto which has several play parks, is great for walking, picnics, playing and feeding the ducks and swans. We also visit Camperdown regularly either to go to the parks, have picnics or to visit the animals. We also go to Pirate island and the fun factory soft play areas, local playgroups and Sensation on a weekly basis. During the warm weather we also visit Brechin castle and various other parks as often as the weather permits! There will also be regular visits to the library and organised groups and we have lots of playdates with other mums which encourages the children to play together, share and helps teach communication skills.
My most valuable experience is as a mum. I also have a BA degree in primary education. Until I started childminding in 2009 I worked as an education officer at Sensation science centre in Dundee. I am married and have 2 girl who were born in November 2008 and March 2011. I have been childminding since 2009.

I aim to provide children with a safe, caring, warm and stimulating home from home environment where they can play and learn. They will receive individual attention, whilst also enjoying interaction with children of various ages. I like to spend time out of the house when possible, visiting play parks, beaches, libraries, walks, soft play and other places of interest. Indoors we will have lots of time for baking, art and crafts, games, stories, free play and much more.
I have Public Liability Insurance and I am a member of the SCMA (Scottish Childminding Association).

- Before and After school care available
- Ages 0-16, full or part-time

- Ad-hoc places also available
- Available to take Home-educated children with an ad-hoc contract, so if you just require a few hours of care that would be fine.

Since I only have pre-school children during school hours, I am available to have up to three school aged children on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (possibly Fridays too) between 9:15 and 14:45.
For childminding I charge £4 per hour (Minimum session is 2 hours)
I am a Registered childminder in the Kelty area, providing quality care from birth to 16yrs. I take a mixed age of kids throughout the day and provide stimulating activities appropriate for the age/stage of the children. Such activities are: swimming, gymnastics, woodland adventures, trips in the bus/train, park visits, days out (animal parks, museums, science centre). We also enjoy indoor play, being creative (lego, baking, craft, play doh), encouraging imagination (den building, tea parties, role play).
Children in my setting are valued for their uniqueness and recognised that everyone is an individual, promoting equal opportunities, respecting views, ideas and opinions of others. They are encouraged to share their thoughts and are very much involved in the running of the service.
