Husband and wife team Rachel and Ian Macdonald and mother and daughter pair Alice and Agnes Joan Macmillan have been named as Childminders of the Year 2014 by the Early Years Service.

As part of childminding month, which was May, parents were encouraged to nominate their childminder, and in thirty words explain what is special about their childminder. Following the count the childminding teams named above were named.

Rachel and Ian have been childminders together for two and a half years looking after children aged eight months to five years.

Alice has been childminding for seven years and two years later her Mum joined her. Together they look after thirteen children aged nine months to twelve years.

The prizes of a bowl and £50 gift vouchers each were presented by Councillor Catriona Stewart, chair of the Early Years Partnership.
