Teresa and Gary Simic are retiring after many years of childminding. Teresa has been childminding for 33 years and Gary has been childminding for 23 years. They have cared for over a hundred different children during that time, and many of the parents have become close friends.
“We have had a great time over the years, and although it was quite demanding at times, we wouldn’t change anything. Working as a husband and wife team really worked for us, and we think the children benefited as a result. Over the years we have seen many changes (legislation, funding, technology etc) but the children are the same as ever; funny, demanding, cute and very rewarding to look after. We shall miss them.”
Thank you for your long service to childminding and we wish them a long happy and healthy retirement.
