Debbie is everything you would look for in a childminder. She genuinely loves babies and children and this shows in the way she cared for my 2 year old daughter Franceska and of course the other children she looks after.

She has a genuine interest in helping her children to learn and progress and carries a gentle authority that means that the children respect her and want to please her.

She is often out and about with the children and structures the day well, with different activities at home, She taught my daughter sign language and lots of other things

She is very approachable and good at communicating with parents as well as children. I have found her entirely reliable and trustworthy. On the very rare occasions that she is unable to work, she will always arrange cover with another childminder with whom the children are familiar.

I was so lucky to have found Debbie and treat her as a friend now.
