My partner Allan Nanan and I work together. His profile can be viewed separately on the childcare website. His photograph and profile can be viewed. He had worked with me as an assistant for over 2 years. Allan is now an Ofsted Registered Childminder but we still work together and live together. We are unable to provide a photo of both of us on this site sorry, for any inconvenience.

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.

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.

We sent our son to Debby and Allan at 8 months, and they have both worked so hard with him and us to settle him in. It has been a big change for him, and Debby and Allan made sure they were able to provide the extra care he needed in those first weeks.
We get to see photos and videos each day of what the children are up to, so we can still be a part of all the new experiences our boy is having. The communication has been great, and we really feel like we are working as a team with them to offer the care and support he needs.
They are genuinely invested in our sons care, we have been lucky to find them.

I use Debbie and Allan for after school care. I was anxious about my son's 1st day of school and having child minder on the very next day. All that vanished after meeting Debbie and Allan and hearing about the exciting activities they have in store for the kids. I especially love the daily updates of the kids at the park, seafront or just chilling indoors having their snacks and playing. Totally recommend their services :)

Debby looked after my 1-year-old son for 2 evenings. Even if my son is not used to stay without us, Debby did a great job looking after him, making sure to minimize the stress for my son and keeping us informed at all stages. She is very organised, reliable, always on time. She did an amazing work

My kids absolutely loved staying at Debby's.
It was the first time that we used a babysitter for our 2 kids (2 and 4 years old) and I was really nervous not knowing how they would find the experience but as soon as we walked in Debby's house she made us feel really welcome and greet us all with a super warm smile.
My kids immediately started playing with the toys that she had there and in 2-3 minutes were absolutely at ease with her and her daughter Katie.
She took them to the beach and the playground and they really enjoyed the experience.
In fact when we when to pick them up they told us that they couldn't wait to see Debby again and this is great.
I will definitely use her babysitter service again and would recommend her to everyone, she is just amazing!!!
