I live in Pinner, in a spacious cottage with a garden and summerhouse. We have a wonderful little community where we all know each other well. I thrive to offer a relaxing yet stimulating environment, providing a mixture of child-led free play and guided activities revolving around seasonal themes, and the interests of the children. I have a small setting, with around three children at any time. Because I don’t offer school runs, all children are under five years old. Throughout the day, my house is solely for childcare. We love doing activities from home as much as we enjoy venturing out. The children love to play with my dog and help care for the rabbits too! I believe that children are their own individual people, and I pride myself on letting them be themselves, nurturing them along the way.
I’ve always been interested in children and their development, and I’ve been working in Early Years since 2010. I began my career in the pre-school at the Royal Masonic School in Rickmansworth, moving on to work with a childminder based in Kensal Rise. I then spent a few years nannying before becoming a childminder in 2015. This has given me the opportunity to experience different types of childcare and attend multiple Early Years training courses as I endeavour to extend my knowledge. I have experience working with multi-lingual children and children with additional needs. I am happy to work with parents in order to best facilitate each child and their family.

Below are the latest reviews for Danielle. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.
Our little girl has just started school after nearly four years of coming to Danielle a few days a week. She has always loved being at Danielle’s house and is devastated to be leaving her friends there and starting big school!
Danielle is great with babies and offers a really relaxed environment to keep them feeling safe and happy. All the kids play together well and learn about sharing and co-operating. Danielle has a lovely house and garden that is perfect for childcare. I thoroughly recommend Danielle as a childminder.
Danielle has been childminding my daughter for the past few months and I'm really impressed not just with the setting, food, activities etc but in the care that has been provided. I was unsure how my then-10 month old would cope in a childcare environment but she has formed a brilliant bond with Danielle and is excited to see her. The observations are detailed and link well to the EYFS, I am very impressed. She also provides good communication as to what happened during the day.
I would thoroughly recommend Danielle to anybody seeking a childcare environment where they expect quality care to be provided but also the child's learning and development needs to be met. A home from home with the bonus of extra learning experiences!
