Hi there my name is Paul. I am a family man with three beautiful children and nineteen years experience working in social care, and this is a brief explanation of why I became a registeredchildminder. I have worked in a variety of care settings over the years (such as Yorkhill Hospital in the short stay ward where I worked for two years), and still work in social care just now. I am a patient and caring individual and I get a lot out of caring for and supporting those I am responsible for.
I have lived in Bridge of Weir for the past 22 years in a quiet location behind the primary school. I have a spacious home and garden for the children to play in, and a dedicated playroom and quietroom for the children. Early 2011 after retiring my husband Gordon became a partner and registered with the SCSWIS.

As a mum of three I understand the importance of finding good quality childcare and with this in mind I am striving to take some of the hassles and concerns out of choosing a nursery by providing aservice which is very much child and family orientated. As well as being a mum I am a Qualified Childcare / Lead Practitioner, holding a Degree in Early Childhood Practice, HNC in Childcare and Education, SVQ Level 4 Management Qualification and Montessori Teaching Diploma.
