Donna is incredible. Words can't really describe how sad we were when she moved away but it means that other children will get to experience what our little boy Finn did. Her house was his home from home and we became part of the family, and her part of ours.

She cares not only for your child, but for the parents too and will always have friendly chats and reassure and support you through anything. She is patient, honest, friendly, trustworthy, calm, reliable, welcoming and loving - no matter what is going on in her own life - her job comes first and she is there. She is very flexible, and fitted in with our requirements regarding transport too, collecting and dropping off our boy as well as cooking him hearty home made meals each day.

Cannot recommend Donna enough. Your child will be in safe hands and love every minute there.

thank you so much amazing review i will miss you all very much.xx

We moved our son to Donna after being with a less than ideal childminder, so was understandably nervous. Donna was amazing, really put us at ease and was wonderful with our little boy. The change we saw in him from going to Donnas after just a couple weeks was unbelievable. She knows exactly what she's doing and is brilliant at it. Going to be very missed by us all.

That’s so lovely hun thank you I will miss you all too.x

Absolutely 100% recommend Donna as a childminder , both my boys love going and have so much fun whilst mummy works. Donna is so friendly and is fantastic with being flexible to suit your requirements. Trustworthy, honest and lovely inside out!! My boys adjusted so well considering know one has looked after them before they settled on their first day. Childcare cost are incredibly reasonable and the meals which Donna provides are superb. The various activities which they do whilst their is great for the children learning in more ways than one .

when i started with Donna, I had just moved to grantham and was struggling being a single parent to a little girl Anaiah who was in her terrible three LOL. she has been with Donna for about a year now and i have never met anyone so patient and loving like she is. She did early morning pick ups and dropped her off according to my needs. she is not just a child minder but she is an unbelievable friend too. Donna knows her Job so well and is always there to help out with advice. she helped me settle and Anaiah is now in school and the most well behaved child any parent could have. everyday she gets praises for her behaviour and politeness and her willingness to help out. All thanks to my Donna. Thank you so much Mrs. H. Its been the best year my little girl had. Thank you so much. we love you

Donna looked after our then 6 month old for just over a year and we can happily say she looked after our son brilliantly. He was made to feel like part of her family. She reassured me whenever I needed it that he was ok when I first went back to work and thereafter. She was very accommodating at short notice and we always felt that if we had any concerns we could always talk to her. Donna did a range of activities both indoors and out, she made them fun for our son to not only learn new ventures but on his development for a great start in life. We would recommend Donna to another parent as the child/ren will be in great hands.
