ofsted have come round to value my provision and gave me an mark as good. i have a very large house and this is why i can look after loads of children and provide them with a great learning and fun.
i have passed a child care course and also have done a first aid.
im 38 years old and i have 4 children my youngest is 1 year old, and she was the main reason i decided to become a childminder.
i love children, i live in chorlton and there is so many things to explore for children in my area, trying to list them would be wrong as i might miss something.
i believe in healthy eating and a healthy environment.
i also monitor the children and observe with the eyfs stage.

anytime i dont mind you take care
Noreen is a brilliant childminder. I was very apprehensive about leaving my 2yr old daughter when i started work but noreen eased any fears i had and answered any questions. My daughter settled in immediatly even though she has never been in chidcare before. She loves Noreen, her assistants and all the other children.; Noreen offers a very stimulating enviroment lots of outdoor play and messy play and quiet time if needed and a variety of meals throughout the week. During my daughters first week noreen kept in regular contact throughout the day letting me know how my daughter was getting on which really helped me to stop being so anxious. So if your looking for top quality childcare please go and see this lady and the setting your children will not want to leave i know mine didn't

Noreen was excellent and went beyond the call of duty to make me feel comfortable about leaving my baby in her care. I would recommend her service without hesitation.

thank you babes any time
see you soon
My son has never been happier, i was so relaxed leaving my boy with "bhaji Noreen" (auntie Noreen). He absolutly adores her, and he has learnt so much and his social skills have improved alot, Noreen has supported me in taking my son's dummy of him and cutting him down on his milk intake. As my son had problems with eating Noreen has helped him to get back into a fantastic eating routine, and completly installed confidence and happiness into my childs life. Dribble Drabble is not just a nursery to my son it has become a little family to both of us! Any child would be happy to be there and any parent will be left feeling relaxed and satisfied with the care and support provided.

ahhhh thank you im just glad your happy and omar is happy
take care love you
Noreen is a fantastic childminder who provides an excellent environment for the children in her care and is supported by a small group of hardworking, dedicated assistants. They all truly enjoy spending time with the children and taking care of them, and are very good at keeping in contact with parents throughout the day to let them know what their little ones are up to. They are all very professional but still manage to make you and your child feel like one of the family.
Despite the fact my baby was very young when she started attending dribble drabble (4.5 months), she adjusted straight away and was very happy - this was largely due to Noreen's excellent planning, experience, organisational skills and honesty.

thank you so so much we all love the baby our youngest.......
After meeting Noreen it has seriously meant the complete solution to my childcare needs.I met Noreen yesterday which was the 10th July 2010,me and my partner went to visit and we decided to leave the kids there with Noreen for a few hours.We had a look around at the setting which was fantastic,accomodating to our childrens needs.Noreen really made us feel so comfatable about leaving the kids.We were so relaxed and Noreen put us at so much ease.Even after leaving the kids she sent me a text to assure me the kids were fine and happy.My kids were very happy and my daughter didn't even want to come home!
You're an absolute gem Noreen and i recommend you to every parent looking for childcare!

any time sweeti x x x x give my love to the kids x x x
My eldest daughter is 2 and the youngest is 1 i took them to noreens nursery as i had spoke to her over the phone.I was very suprised how she had laid out the nursery for the kids it was fabulous.Anyway i left my kids to play whilst i had a chat with noreen.They were both very happy their for that small period i was there.So when i went home i decided this was the right place for them.Now both of them go to that nursery,.due to me leaving the home at 7.30am for work noreen picks them and drops them off in the evening which is very convinient for myself.when im at work i don't worry or get anxious about my kids because i know they are fed and cared for superbly.As a mother i would highly recommend this to every mother.

norren is a very special childminder, my baby is the type that doesn't go to anyone, but she got used to noreen straight away which is so suprising to myself and my husband. noreen is very understading, helpfull and very good with kids. i will recommend her to anyone.

Thank you julie
Your baby has settled in well.
Noreen is a kind, caring and friendly childminder. She has really helped me out by caring for my 7 year old son while I am waiting for a school place for him. I am able to go to work knowing that he is safe. Noreen treats my son as one of the family, he plays upstairs with her own son when he comes home from school. She is also very honest - on the first day he did not settle too well and would not eat. She was concerned about him and sent me a text. We have got over that now, but it is good to know that she will be open with me and not pretend that all is well when there are concerns. I hope we will be able to stay in touch when my son eventually get a place at school!

I do hope your son will get a place soon and dont worry my son is realy fond of your son we will definate stay in touch.
I have been using noreens service for the past 5 months, overnight stay and babysitting. She runs her own childminding service seperatly.
Noreen is a great lady and she realy makes my two feel comfortable with her. They stay overnight and they realy enjoy themself as noreen has a baby girl herself...
She is realy a nice lady and she does make sure safety and security is a number one for her... I would recommend her every time.... thanks noreen for keeping my kids and on such short notice for my older one for the holiday period....
Take care fajer

noreen is a very warm person and realy nice. i was very happy and confortable to leave my child in her care as knowing she will be opening a nursery in just 4 weeks, so i was happy to leave my child with her and then she would move my child across to the nursery.. as my child will already now noreen the move will be easier..
just to tell parents that noreen is a very nice caring lady and your kids will love it with her and her care....

My son has been looked after by Noreen and her staff since he was 2 months old and I would definitely recommend her without reservation! She is a beautiful, warm, confident, friendly and straight talking childminder, she looks after all children in her care ad though they were her own children, and gives 100% to the kids. My baby absolutely loves it there and I can go to work knowing my son is being well looked after ! Thank you so much Noreen ! Anyone interested, honestly don't hesitate!! Xxxx

My son has been looked after by Noreen and all the rest of the practioners.Dribble Drabble is an amazing place for children my son use to be very silly and had behavour problems but once he started Dribble Drabble he has completely changed his attitude and behaves well at all times.I am happy with the way my son is learning new things every day and how his imagination has grown.Sine my son has been with Noreen he has learnt to behabve and has learnt good table manners and also has learnt how to be nice with others and to be friendly.Noreen lives just up the road for me so it is an easy access for me to get to the nursery and back also im a happy that noreen provides a pick up and drop off service which is quite helpfull.I am happy with the way my son is enjoying his nursery through play and fun.My son loves all the activitys and loves all the staff and manager Noreen,I am happy to say my son has a understanding of positive relationships and has great manners.....Thank you noreen for your help and support and for making my boy a bright little sunshine...keep up the good work

My two younger siblings were very nervous children, they did not communicate with anyone apart from family members, up until they started dribble drabble nursery. this nursery is actually amazing, they have helped boost the confidence within my younger brother and sister. it has a unique friendly atmosphere and treats the children very well. my brother and sister both now enjoy going to nursery as before they did not want to leave the house. i have visited dribble drabble myself and i am very impressed as the staff are highly trained and know exactly what they are doing. i highly recommend dribble drabble to all parents as this is one of the best nurserys in manchester.
