My name is Karen Santana, and my husband and I are registered childminder.

We were registered by the care commission in 2006. We are registered for 9 children in which includes our own son, Javi and Azzay

 Both myself and my Husband have been checked by disclosure scotland and have had a house inspection carried out by the care commission.




   I hold a child and infant emergency first aid certificate and I have completed a two year course in childcare. My home is annually inspected by the Care Commission, and on my last inspection which was in June 2019. I was graded at number 5 which is very good. You can view my full Care Commission details. Service Details,Quality Grades, Inspection Reports, Enforcements, Complaints. I am fully insured and I am also a member of the Scottish Childminding Association



   I live with my husband Paco and our children Javi & Azzay. Paco is spanish and we speak mostly spanish at home, although Paco does speek fluent english, many of the children we care for tend to pick up spanish words and also learn to understand a little spanish, which is great.

   I feel I Am a very caring person, so apart from loving children of all ages I thought becoming a childminder would make good use of my caring nature.
