The children in my care have really taken to the male figure in childcare and think he is great and he is amazing with children. He has a DBS check and has his Pediatric First Aid. (Please see his list of qualifications below. He has Nanny experience with very young babies, from 5 months old to over 5's also.

children. The children will be educated how to respect the animals
and how to think about good hygiene skills.
14. My working hours are 6.30am till 21.30pm Monday to Friday, all
year round. I do also work weekends.
15. I will give you approximately 4 weeks notice of holiday notice
16. I will give you approximately 1-5 week’s notice of termination

opportunity to wear High Viz, to keep them safe on outings.
They wear hand reins, to teach them to be safe and they are there
to protect them at their age stage development to the best
of my ability.
20. Risk assessments are carried out the risk assessment file is
available to view upon your request.
21. Important Documentation and Information, which lists Motor
Insurance etc. and dates when due for renewal and our driving

22. Regular Fire Drills are put in place to ensure the safety of your
children to the best of my ability, of course age stage appropriate,
to practice with or along side an adult.
23. I use Babysdays which is an online website, which makes me
paperless and enables you to long in and monitor your child’s
development online 24 hours a day. You will be issued a private
pin code for access to your childs details only. I am therefore
paperless.
24. Babysdays offers so many features and includes information on
your childs Learning Journey, which covers the seven areas of
learning. EYFS. When your child first starts, starting points will be
logged of where your child has developed in these areas and then
you will be able to monitor their development on their Learning
Journey. Reports are done and sent to you on line. Fire drills are
logged online. A Base Tracker can be viewed at a glimpse so you
can see at a glance where your child has secured the areas of
learning and where they are developing. With observations we can
also monitor what we have seen your child achieve or struggle
with. We can then write next steps to work with you and advise
you how we can both develop and bring your child further with
achieving those goals. This is done through play so your child will
not know what’s going on as far as they are concerned they are at
play. Invoices will be issued through this program along with the
option of newsletters and messaging each other. A great form of
communication, in my opinion.
25 I offer a mirror settling in, so you can come out with us on our
outings so you and your child can build confidence in what we do
and how we work and get to know us.
26 We use Whats App quite a lot through out the day to ensure the
parents can stay in touch with their children’s day, with pictures
and videos. Which parents thoroughly enjoy.
27 We can offer Flexible Childcare.

the company. I had worked for years with my children growing up
with Au pairs, friends, family and childcare. I do appreciate from
my own experiences what people are looking for in a childminder.
So with my own experiences combined, with the stresses of work
and finding suitable childcare, we can work together to make your
children and your life as comfortable and stress free as possible.
10. I do take training as an important part of my development as a
childminder to be able to offer the best care to your children and

Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

I cannot recommend more highly. From the second we met Debby and Allan we knew they were perfect for taking care of our son who was 7 months when he started with them. Being our first child they took away any anxieties we had about leaving him and truly put our mind at rest offering advise and working with us to get him settled in, which he did instantly.
They offer such variety and diversity to their days, visiting lots of different places and offering lots of new experiences. They take everything into consideration to ensure our son is happy and content. When I drop off and collect children always seem so happy there. Couldn’t wish for any more, feel very lucky we found them.

I found myself in urgent need of some child care due to unforeseen circumstances. I was in a massive panic when I called Debbie and explained my situation. She quickly calmed me down and invited me round to meet her at her home. With in moments of meeting Debbie and her wonderful partner Allan ) who also is a child minder) I knew i wanted to send my little girl to them who at the time was 16 months old.
I know have a 3 month old and I will be sending her to Debbie when she is 6 months as there is no one else I trust enough to look after my baby :-)

My daughter has the most wonderful experiences with them and they are always out and about and Debbie sends me films and updates through out the day which I have asked for.

I couldn’t recommend her and her partner enough. Thanks for looking after the most precious thing in the world to me and which enables me to work and not feel guilty!

Our daughter started with Debby and Allan when she was only 5 months old so we were a bit anxious about how it would work out as she was not taking a bottle and had little experience with other people other than us. Due to Debby's and Allan's loving and caring natures, however, she quickly settled in and now seems to thoroughly enjoy spending time with them and the other children. We are updated with regular messages, videos and pictures which makes the whole process more relaxed for us. We strongly believe that our now 8-month old daughter benefits from spending time with experienced adults, other children, and the various activities (farms, castles, playground, pools, parks etc.) that Debby and Allan provide for her.

Debby is fantastic- she’s so detailed and gave us really helpful updates while she was babysitting. Debby explains everything very clearly and had a lovely connection with our daughter. I would definitely recommend her!!

Debbie has a lovely, warming nature towards both parent and babies/ children. My 15month old twin boys are a little upset at hand over but within minutes are happy and settled. Videos and photo messages allow me to get on with work knowing they are safe, happy and being cared for. Days out encourage them to explore their environment and gain confidence. Highly recommended!
