My son started to go to Dami's when he was just 10months old until it was time for him to go to Nursery. My son settled in with Dami so well and always got so excited when it was time to go there. He even started to call Dami auntie which I loved.
Dami was always so accommodating to my busy schedule letting me know where she was when I was running late to drop him in the mornings. I loved the way she always put the childrens needs first ensuring they were where they needed to be at the right time in regards to the school run.
My son learnt a lot with Dami, and I thought that it was good that I was given daily updates in regards to what my son ate and the activities he had done. I would like to add that my son ate VERY well there, i saw the children loved the food when I arrived during diner time. Dami even advised me what we can do at home to help with his development. I will definately be sending my second son there if there is space for him!

Wow Georgina, thanks a lot for your lovely words, you have made my day. Your son was a great pleasure to us and we miss his dance. I thank God he is doing great in all areas of learning. I will always have a space for you.

Dupe is the best childminder I have found and quite honestly a godsend.
After spending years trying to find reasonable, reliable and local childcare I finally found Dupe and my daughter hasn’t been happier ! Dupe is very kind, warm and professional and I can leave my daughter with her knowing she will be safe and have lots of fun with dupe and the other children. I honestly can’t thank dupe enough because finding good childcare is soo difficault - but I’m so glad I’ve found her ! Thank you again

Thanks Omololu, your child has brought so much joy and creativity into the Setting. All my children have blessed me so much. Their accomplishments keeps me going.

Dupe started to take care of our baby when he was just 13 months. I was desperate to find someone, but I didn’t have any recommendation. Dupe was the only one that tried to understand our needs and was a such amazing surprise for us since the first day with our baby.
She is very flexible, which is not easy to find someone that is able to take care of you and your baby as a family, but she is. She talks to me and my husband, send infos and pictures everyday and are always very flexible. I feel very safe with her.
She is lovely, very liable and the most important, my little one loves to spend time with her and her children.

Thamks Cintia, it has been a pleasure and a blessing to take care of your lovely child.

Dupe started looking after my little one when he was just 7 months and I had to go back to work after maternity leave. She is very caring, understanding and patient with children, I think this is really what every child care provider should be. She is especially flexible with hours which I find many childminders and nurseries are not usually. She takes children to playgroups, parks, farm, picnics etc..which I find my son really enjoyed and it is good for learning and interacting with other children.

She regularly encourages developmental skills such as fine motor skills, walking, toileting and learning words and she sends regular activity reports with pictures and sometimes videos. She also provides meals with snacks and keeps a personal diary with what my son had eaten. She is very experienced and has older children which she drops and picks for school runs.

Needless to say, she looks after children in a safe and fun environment with an affordable price. No wonder Dami Childminding services is OFSTED "good".
