About Me

Hi, my name is Debbie. I'm an OFSTED registered childminder with over 15 years experience, I have been rated good in my all areas in my last inspection (June 2016). I am also a full-time mum, with 2 sons, Luke aged 20 and Ryan aged 17.

My partner and I have a large spacious house on the Woodford, Highams Park & Chingford borders, which has a separate playroom and large garden. We are extremely close to the local park & forest, which is excellent for 'play time' for the children. Highams Park and Woodford rail and tube stations respectively, are nearby.

I offer a safe, clean, warm, home from home environment for play and learning as governed by the EYFS framework, with large indoor & outdoor space for the children in my care. I pride myself on treating the children in my care as if they were my own, where they are able to learn through play, to encourage the imagination and social skills.

I regularly visit the local parks, forest and play groups, along with the library for recreation time.

Debbie is a fantastic childminder. Our 2 year old son started with her under the current strange COVID circumstances so we weren't able to go inside her house or be present for a settling in period. Debbie was really reassuring through this and very accommodating. Our son is on the autistic spectrum and can struggle to settle but Debbie was so good with his requirements and needs and he has been really happy with her. We have been able to see from the photos she has sent us of our son enjoying himself that she has a good selection of toys and activities and a clean and spacious house and garden. Definitely the best childminder we have had.
