My name is Susan Henry and I am a registered childminder and a member of the Scottish Childminding Association (SCMA). I live in Gartcosh with my husband Neil and our daughter's Charlotte, who was born in December 2007 and Madeleine, who was born in March 2012.

I became a childminder to allow me to care for my own daughter's and offer a service to others who would like their children to be cared for in a safe and homely environment.

Our family home is detached and I use the downstairs area which has patio doors leading to an enclosed back garden. We have also converted our garage into a playroom. Our house is non-smoking. We have a cat called Barney who is very much part of our family; he is very placid and friendly.

We attend our local childminders group in Stepps on a Wednesday and Friday morning. I'm also available to drop off/pick up to and from local nurseries and schools.
