About Me

Ofsted Registered Childminder - Grade - Outstanding in all areas.

I am a mother of 5 children all of whom have left home except for my youngest daughter who is 23. I live in a Semi Detached house, with a good sized garden. The garden backs onto a large sports field where the children and I enjoy playing. We enjoy attending local child minding and community playgroups.

I am able to offer the governments NEG funding (free 15/30 hours for 2,3,&4 year olds (subject to eligibility) Also the 20% Government tax free childcare.

I have lots of toys and activities for children of all ages, and a a system for recording their individual progress in their Early Years Development

At my last Ofsted Inspection I was graded OUTSTANDING IN ALL AREAS.

My daughter has been with Diane for well over a year now. My daughter loves going and always asks when is she going Diane’s. My daughter has come on leaps and bounds since being cared for by Diane. Cannot thank her enough for all the hard work she does. Very reliable and fantastic with all children in the setting.
Can’t wait to send my little boy here once it’s time to go back to work. As I know he will be more than well looked after by Diane who goes above and beyond to ensure the children are well looked after.

Diane was providing after school childcare for my 3 children for five good years. I registered with her when I started college and she was looking after my kids until I finish the university last year. My children always enjoyed being with her and are even asking me to go back to uni so that Diane can look after them once again. Diane is so reliable and she has always been there for me when needed. I don't think I could be able to achieve my goals without her support. I am more than happy to do business with her in the future. Thank you Diane for everything.

Thank you so much for your review. Your children were a pleasure to look after so polite and well behaved always. Hopefully I’ll be able to catch up with them soon when we are out if this current crisis!

Our daughter has been with Diane for 4 years since she was 12 months and we couldn't be more happier and grateful for her excellent service, caring approach and all the support along the way. Diane is highly experienced and has a great approach to children, is very knowledgable and committed and we could always rely on her. Our daughter loves going to Diane, playing with other kids, doing all sort of activities and also learning, and is now very well prepared for school. I would highly recommend Diane as a c/m we couldn't do it without her and we will carry on using her services during school holidays. Thank you Diane!
