My family's experience with Dawn as our childminder has never been anything short of amazing. She's always been very accommodating with our work schedules and even when we've needed last minute care due to schedule changes. Dawn provides an excellent environment for children, practices clear and frequent communication with us as parents, and is well organized. We can't say enough great things about her and the care that she has provided for our child before/after school and over half term holidays!

Dawn has been looking after my daughter who at times can be very changeling at times. She is always happy and settled when I go to collect her, She does fantastic crafty activities which she really enjoys. It’s a homely environment and all the children are always very happy. I would not hesitate to recommended Dawn.

Dawn has been looking after our son for 4 years and our daughter for 2 and 1/2 years. They love going to see her every day and she always gets huge hugs and kisses when they get there.
Dawn is very a dedicated, caring, patient and loving lady who provides the best home from home for our children.
All the children being looked after by Dawn get along and play well together, with the "big ones" being so gentle and caring with the "little ones". They all know the rules and are respectful of each other and their environment.
This is the best setting we could have ever hoped for for our children.
