My name is Lindi Binnie and I am a registered childminder and member of the Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA).
I live in Newtonmore with my dog Ella. I previously worked in Dalwhinnie primary school as a nursery assistant from 2008 until 2012 when the school closed. I was then moved to Newtonmore primary school to work as a PSA (Pupil Support Assistant). I worked with children of all ages and, in particular, children with additional needs. I went to college in Inverness in 2006 and studied Early Education and Childcare at NC level and also did my Higher exam. In 2007 I went on to do my HNC and graduated in 2008.
I am a fluent Gaelic speaker and have used this a lot in my career. Newtonmore has a Gaelic medium primary unit and nursery. I have worked in both, in particular the nursery. My house was built in 2012 and is a semi detached house. The living room is the main room used and I have a spare room for children who need a sleep. I live at the end of the village in a nice quiet part. It is approximately 5 mins walk to Newtonmore primary School with lots of lovely walks near.
Working hours are 8.00am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday
Hourly rate is £4.50. This includes a morning and afternoon snack. Discount available if you have more than one child in my care. pick ups and drop offs in Newtonmore and Kingussie.
I aim to provide a safe, fun and stimulating environment for children.
