Children under 5 are very vulnerable, I have witnessed too many children being admitted to hospital due to respiratory issues, I know the difference between a cough and croup/chest infection. I take great care of my mindees like I do my own, so please take action on my recommendation to of a go/hospital visit, it's better to be repeatedly told their chest is clear than for your child to be hospitalised or worse .
Hi Kim

I hope it's OK to post this opportunity here.
The Casting Team of Channel 4's The Secret Life of 4 & 5 Year Olds are currently looking for children to feature in the new series.

See the flyer for details and please share if you feel it’s appropriate.

Learning about different modes of transport -buses cars, trains, hot air balloons, roller skates ❤️, helicopter, bicycle, and motorbikes. Our favourite books this week are the tiger who came to tea and what the ladybird heard. Stencils and paint practicing this skill, decorating photo frames, jigsaws, football, climbing, what's the time little wolf to name a few 🎉


Did you know your childs funding follows them and you can share it with multiple settings including childminders?, you cannot be forced to take all hours with one setting you have a choice of in what capacity too, term time or full term too.


Kim's Childcare offers term time placements for under 5s and before and after school, current school for drop off and collection is St Francis of Assisi in Baillieston Noticeboard


Some reasoning behind the activities I do ♥️


Activities to Help a Child Cross the Midline

Arts and crafts (coloring, drawing, threading, cutting, pasting, folding)
Learning a musical instrument that engages both hands (piano, violin or guitar)
Martial arts (punching and kicking across the body)
Playing games like Twister or Simon Says
Marching like toy soldiers
Stretching and reaching (get child to reach as high as they can with their right hand and then try to touch as low as they can to their left toe)
Yoga (try Cosmic Kids)
Dancing (GoNoodle or You Tube are great)
Ribbons and streamers (make circles and patterns)
Hop scotch
Move like animals (crawl like a crab, bear walk, hop like a bunny, stand like a flamingo)
Draw figure eights on the ground (using chalk) or on a chalkboard (practicing on vertical surfaces adds another dimension)
Practice with zippers, buttons, shoelaces, snaps

Another week has past, we visited a birds of prey centre when a an American kestrel landed on Kim's head it was very funny!, We have visited a few play parks. We learned about shadows drawing around dinosaurs and ourselves. Had yummy ice lollies in the sun. Had a fruit and veg tasting where we chopped our own snacks we had carrots, apricots, peppers, lemons,apples and mangoes! Yum yum. Our kinder mindees practiced their shapes on jigsaws and threading numbers and shapes, wow so much fun and learning.

Heuristic play, cooking tasting raw veggies and chopping them up for soup promoting healthy eating and independence is just down of the things that happens at Kim's house ❤️ ❤️


We don’t appreciate the years of little kids while we’re in them.⁣

Because humans never do until it's too late and they're gone.⁣

While we're in it, we often wish parts of it away,⁣
the hardly any time to ourselves,⁣
the crawling across the floor to put away puzzles and crayons,⁣
the peeling off stickers,⁣
and scraping muffins and scrambled eggs off the kitchen floor.⁣

We wish away the tantrums,⁣
the constant fighting,⁣
the bad behavior,⁣
the non-stop laundry,⁣
and the exhaustion ALL THE TIME.⁣

We wish away every imperfect moment that makes our skin crawl.⁣

But one day, it will be over⁣
and we’ll miss it—

We’ll miss the giggles,⁣
the smiles,⁣
the “not wiped off” kisses,⁣
and chubby arms and toothless grins.⁣

We’ll miss being needed,⁣
the crooked teeth,⁣
the time spent together,⁣
and hearing “Mommy look!” every two minutes.⁣

We’ll miss who we are RIGHT NOW as individuals and a family.⁣

Because soon new people will be living in our house with us. Their faces and voices will morph into someone else’s.⁣

And they’ll keep changing.⁣
And we’ll be new people, too.⁣

So, let’s try to take in ALL OF IT—⁣
the bad, hard, and the good—⁣
and not take any of it for granted.⁣

Because I guarantee,⁣
one day soon,⁣
we’ll miss THIS.

Risky play at Baltic outdoor adventure, funny pictures of Kim joining in on the fun 🤣 we climbed up narrow stair cases and ladders upto tree houses! We saw some guinea pigs, chickens, bunnies and ducks too.
We had pop corn that was made over an open fire, we watched how to make a fire and learnt to stay safe and stay back!


Unfortunately three of our cacoons have fallen off the lid, fingers crossed they still emerge 🤞🤞🤞🤞

Children love to play – and play is fundamental to making a difference to a child’s learning, wellbeing and development.

Childminders play a vital role in supporting the right to play, by providing fun, engaging and creative play experiences for children that enriches their overall development.
