About Me

The Lilley pad

You can find us at The Lilley pad

i have 3 children. 1 aged 23 who is at university a daughter 21 who works with me and a son aged 15.

I like to do lots of outdoor play and activities with the children. I take the children out regularly to either jolly jingles, farms, parks, soft play, woodland walks, museums and any other activities which I think will be a beneficial, fun way, of enhancing your child's development and learning.

Whilst at home I have a vast amount of toys and resources for all ages, which cover all areas of learning. We also enjoy messy play, baking and being creative, which I like to be mainly child led. I follow the EYFS and provide pictures via WhatsApp to parents during every visit your child makes to "the lilley pad". Snacks, evening meal and drinks are included in the price, as are outings.

My Experience

I have a degree in early years and have worked in numerous primary schools and nurseries. I have certificates in paediatric first aid, food hygiene and safeguarding. I have a full clean driving licence and are fully insured for business use. I also have public liability insurance with Pacey, which comes highly recommended for child minders.

Dawn and Megan are two of the loveliest people you could care to meet. They made us feel comfortable enough to leave out then 6 month old daughter with them. They communicated great and send me pictures on the days she was with them. My daughter loved going to The Lilley Pad. She made lots of friends and didn’t want to leave when it was home time. We will miss them greatly

We couldn’t recommend them enough

Dawn and her family (and Billy) welcomed my son and I with open arms, amazing family who were warm, friendly and went above and beyond with my son. This review should have been done a few years ago now (sorry Dawn lol) but better late than never.
Dawn is usually the first person i think of to have my son even to this day. Thank you 🙂

I wasn't sure what to expect as I only contacted Dawn few days into going back to work. She is professional and always happy hence she transfer so much happiness and peace to the lil ones under her care. Anthony couldn't get enough of Dawns house. She takes time to teach the children through play, taking them to the park, soft play center, educational outings and lots more. though we are no longer in Middlesbrough Anthony wish to go back just to see Dawn, his best pal Oliver, Megan and billy the dog. Did I mention how neat the environment is always kept from the gate to the outdoor play area.Her food is always neatly presented and tastes nice too. She creates environment for children to be themselves and feel like they are home away from home. I only wish to go back to Middlesbrough just because of how confident and safe i feel when my child is at Dawns.
