My name is Lorna Perrie and I live in Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, with my husband Allan and our four children - two pairs of twins - Scott and Jack and Emma and Luke. Scott and Jack attend Strathaven Academy while Emma and Luke attend Wester Overton Primary School. I am a qualified nursery nurse and registered childminder and have years of experience caring for young children but no qualification is greater than being a Mum of four. Allan is also a registered childminder and we are both members of the Scottish Childminders Association. We have both successfully attended the SCMA training course and continue to attend refresher courses. Allan and I successfully work together as a team to look after all the children in our care. We live in a large, secluded, modern, luxurious, child friendly house on the outskirts of Strathaven in the middle of the Lanarkshire countryside which is always full of noise and laughter. Allan and I fully understand how hard it is to bring up children in today’s world and we hope that we can help with your childcare needs.

We have a large indoor playroom which is packed full of an exciting range of toys, games and activities designed to stimulate and educate all the children we care for. Additionally, we have a large, secluded and enclosed outdoor play area and garden which was designed and built especially with the needs of children and their safety in mind. The play area and garden is well equipped with state of the art safety surface, toys and play equipment. The children also take part in an exciting range of activities including baking and painting etc. We also enjoy regular walks and visits to Strathaven Park, the duck pond and other local places of interest.

There’s plenty to keep your child entertained and happy at Lorna and Allan Perrie Childminding. Why not visit our gallery and you can see just some of the facilities we have on offer. Whether it’s stimulating the body or mind we always try and make it fun.

We take great pride in the delicious, healthy nutritious meals, snacks and drinks that are provided to all the children in our care. All meals are prepared using fresh ingredients with a strong emphasis on fruit and vegetables which all the children enjoy.

We are available 7.30am to 6pm Monday - Friday and places are available on a full or part time basis. However, we are flexible and can come and go a little. We provide care for babies and children of all ages and we can also pick up your child from your home within a certain distance. School and nursery runs are also available.

  • Each child is given a Daily Diary to take home with them which enables parents to monitor how their child has spent their day.
  • We have full Public Liability Insurance and successful risk assessments of our property are regularly carried out.
  • We give all parents and guardians at least four weeks’ notice in advance of any family holidays that we are taking.
