I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Di as a childminder!
Both of my children have attended her setting since they were 10 months old and my eldest only left last week as he is starting school. He is already looking forward to seeing her again in the school holidays! My youngest continues to attend.
Both of my children have always enjoyed attending Di’s setting and are content and happy when they are dropped off, showing how comfortable they are with her.
Di’s setting provides a home from home environment, which along with her huge wealth of experience and her calm and caring demeanour provides a fantastic space for a child’s development.
Di has always been very flexible and accommodating to my childcare needs which as a working parent I have found invaluable.

Thank you so much for your lovely review
My daughter is just about to leave for school after being with Di from 7 months old, she has grown into a polite, happy, and kind little girl. I am in no doubt those qualities have been strengthened from her time with Di.
When we initially made the decision to look for a childcare setting I was very anxious, but Di’s warm and caring nature immediately made me feel at ease. This coupled with years of experience, I knew my daughter was in safe hands.
When I collect my daughter she is always happy and excited to tell me about her day, Di also keeps me updated with her progress and happy to chat about her day.
She takes a real interest in the children she looks after and my daughter adores her! I honestly can’t recommend Di highly enough.
She is quite simply fantastic!
Thankyou for everything Di, I know Penny will be excited to see you in the holidays x

Thank you so much for lovely review, we will really miss Penny but look forward to seeing her again in the school holidays
My daughter has been going to Di's since she was 10 months old and she loves it. My son who is autistic also goes in the holidays, he struggles with new places but is so at ease when he stays with Diane. They both come out happy and they learn so much and have lots of fun with the other children. I am so happy that i send my children to her as she is a wonderful childminder.

Thank you for your lovely review we will look forward to seeing you in the school holidays 🤗
My daughter is now 4 1/2 and has been cared for by Di since she was 12 months old. Di has shown kindness and compassion towards both my daughter and myself at all times. She kept her doors open throughout the pandemic to enable keyworkers like myself to continue working, and kept up to date with guidelines throughout to keep everyone safe.
Di always keeps me updated with my daughters progress, and during drop off and pick up is always happy to chat about how my daughters day has been and what she has been up to.
My daughter is very happy at Di’s, and has made good friendships with the other children; she tells me that Di teaches them to be kind to each other. I know that when I leave my child with Di I can rest assured that she is in safe hands….priceless!

Thank you for wonderful review it has been an absolute pleasure to have looked after your daughter over the past few years 🤗
I cannot recommend Di enough. We have been with Di for nearly 3.5 years. She is so caring towards both of my boys, she takes extra time to find out their likes and dislikes, and caters activities around this. I am amazed at how much Thomas and learnt and is now ready for school thanks to the time she takes with the children. Despite being a lockdown baby- George has taken to Di straight away even though he had barely been with others. This shows how good Di is at settling children into the setting.
The children all have lovely manners and I can always tell how much she cares about each one. I am gutted we are leaving but this only due to my oldest starting school outside of her area.
An absolutely fantastic childminder.
