Wee Gems Childminding

Childminder

After having my daughter a year ago, I decided to step out of early years teaching in a school setting, to use my skills and experience to start up my own childminding/early education business from home. I have been teaching in leading independent schools in both Scotland and Suffolk for 14 years, and have been specialising in delivering high quality early years education for the last 9 years. I am excited to be offering early years care and education to a small number of children from the age of 3 months up until they are ready to attend nursery/school.


• I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Primary Teaching from the University of Edinburgh
• I have 14 years of Primary Teaching experience, specialising in Early Years in leading independent schools for the past 9 years
• I have a Foundation Certificate in Montessori Pedagogy
• I am now an Ofsted registered childminder, and am starting up my own childminding business called ‘Wee Gems’, offering high quality care and education from home

As an experienced Early Years specialist, I will:
• encourage your child to develop an enthusiasm for learning, from the earliest opportunity
• work with your child so they can explore and develop essential key skills, through learning experiences which are planned and delivered by a specialist early years teacher
• care for your child in a spacious home environment, allowing that real ‘home from home’ experience
• encourage your child to fully experience outdoor play and exploration whatever the weather, in the large secure outdoor space with a covered decked play area
