Welcome and thank you for visiting my website!
My name is Jacqueline and I have own and run Jacqueline's Childminding Service since 2007. I'm a fully qualified childminder based in Denny, Stirlingshire and I offer child minding to parents in the local areas of Denny, Dunipace, Head of Muir and Bonnybridge and further afield as required (e.g. Stirling, Falkirk).
It is my firm belief that each child is an individual in their own right and should be allowed to express themselves in a fun, child-centered environment. As such, the service follows an approach which allows each child to develop at their own pace, from reading or art and crafts, to socialising with other children in outings and playgroups, whilst ensuring a home from home experience.
Over the last 20 years, I have gained plenty of experience in childcare, not only from being a mother, but in a professional capacity as well, working as a nanny in America looking after 3 toddlers; and in Italy nannying for a new born baby. Beyond this I have previously been employed as a nursery assistant for a community nursery in Irvine and was the founder and leader of a community toddler group which was -and still is -very successful, entertaining 25 children.
Whilst I have worked in various occupations at various points in between these experiences, I can honestly say non are as fulfilling, nor rewarding as childcare.
My husband, two children and I live in a lovely detached home in a quiet and safe street which is easily accessible by car or bus. It is from here that I provide children with a safe, caring, warm and stimulating home from home environment
where they can play, grow, learn and have fun.
Your child would have the enjoyment of a large dedicated play room in my sunny home used exclusively for childcare. It also has a very good sized garden where the children can play safely and there is a children's play park directly across from the house which is regularly used by myself and other mothers and their children in the nearby area.
I have a full clean UK driving license and my own transport which is insured for business use and full Public Liability Insurance.
UPDATE: I am now an official 'Partner Provider' registered with Falkirk Council, meaning you are be able to use your child's 600 hours of free early learning and childcare and additional childcare hours to meet the needs of your family within my service.
