Being a father of two children, Erin aged seven and Niall aged three, it is imperative to me and my wife Suzanne that both our children in this day and age are safe at all times

Our eldest Erin ,now at school and flourishing well had previously went to children’s nursery close to our family home for four years before making the graduated step to starting primary school

We then decided that our son Niall should also attend the same nursery his big sister went to, he had been there for a few months until I heard about the service Donna provided in her family home , We then chose to remove Niall from the nursery and send him to Donna two days per week.
The improvement we have seen with niall is outstanding, and just wish we had been able to have Donna look after Erin rather than send her to the nursery

All in all service provided is nothing short of excellent

Over the past two years Donna has taken care of my two children. She has provided pre and after school care for my eldest daughter (10) and through the day care for my other daughter (2).

Donna, not only provides quality childcare in a homely environment but she plans and organises many fun educational visits and has taught my children many different relevant themes. She offers a variety of experiences to suit the individual needs of each of my children. Her own family work and mix well with all the children in her care and are a true asset not only to her but also to her business which in my opinion is a home from home!

I am kept informed of all their activities, through her newsletters, photograph albums, assessment folders and our daily diary.

Donna's qualifications are apparent in her highly professional manner, her clear policies and her wonderful communication. I was able to return to work with great confidence knowing my children were in very capable hands.

Most importantly my children are all very happy in Donna's care and speak highly of her.

It is for all these reasons that I would unreservedly recommend Donna to anyone looking for childcare.

Keep up the fab work chic!!! x

My little boy has been going to Donna's for 3 months now and I couldnt be happier. She is worth her weight in gold and more, as he is my only child it was a worrying thought going back to work and leaving him with someone but that quickly changed the minute i walked into her house. Its a great relief dropping him off knowing he'll have a fun filled day of stories, song time, toddler group and so so much more. Donna has a lovely home environment that you would never get from a nursery is something i was particluarly keen to have. it's lovely to see my boy come home and do the actions for songs that he has learned and so much more. Donna proivides healthy food for lunches along with fruits and yoghurts. I cant reccommend Donna enough.
