As part of the Scottish Government's commitment to increase the affordability, accessibility and flexibility of early learning and childcare (ELC) offered, local authorities are working towards partnership with childminders. This means children can use entitled hours where there is availability, with a local childminder.
Childminders are ELC professionals who offer essential services to children and families.
Working from their homes, childminders offer a unique, flexible approach to early learning and childcare.
Clackmannanshire Council is currently working in partnership with the following childminders:
Christine Mckinsley Childminding Services, e: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jane McMillan, e: email@example.com
I am located in the Alloa Park area and provide early learning and childcare to children aged from newborn to 16 years. I am a qualified early years practitioner registered with the Care Inspectorate and work in partnership with Clackmannanshire Council to provide eligible children with their funded hours entitlement.
My setting is a safe, nurturing environment and I work in partnership with parents to ensure my care meets a child's needs. I provide children with opportunities to socialise and learn through play, both indoors and outdoors, and encourage participation and independence in our daily routines to promote children's confidence and development of a range of skills.
