Below are the latest reviews for Debbie. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk.

Debbie is very warm and friendly and obviously has a passion for helping children learn and excel. My daughter has been going to her for almost 2 years and we wouldn't think of taking her to anyone else. She has developed a really good relationship with my little girl and I cannot thank her enough for the certainty that she will be safe and having fun every time I drop her off. She is very involved with the children she looks after, she is such an engaging and reassuring person. The fact that she works so hard to expand my daughter's knowledge is the icing on the cake. The house is clean, and is a smoke and pet-free environment, the food is healthy and her family are lovely.

My first time having my child looked after and Debbie has done an amazing job. She looked after my 5month baby boy as it was her own child and my baby was so happy. As this was my first time I was so nervous and afraid but after this I would be more than happy leaving my baby with Debbie, she done an excellent job and kept me updated with messages and pictures througout the day. This left me happy and rest assured and not worried on how my baby boy would be. Debbie was so welcoming and friendly that my baby didnt even miss me ;) Im so gratefull and cannot wait to see Debbie again.

Thank you Mimi X Your words are so kind and made me feel so special X I'd love to look after your baby again in the future. Keep in touch X lots of love Debbie

I would highly recommend Debbie to any parent who needs child care in Cardiff.
My 6 year old enjoys his time with her whilst I'm at work and loves doing activities from baking cakes to doing sums!! I know! I have found her to be a wonderfully warm and caring person and I know my son is in the best possible hands so I can get on with my job minus any stress.

So glad I found this lovely lady! She was warm, welcoming and chatty from the beginning, and put me (and the children) completely at ease. My kids are often quite shy with new people, but Debbie gets down to their level and really engages with them, and they were like old friends in no time.

She's somehow energetic and calming at the same time - she has seemingly boundless energy to play games, read stories, provide food and drinks, organise activites and engage the kids in thoughtful and fun conversations. And far more patience than I'll ever have, smoothes out bickering, while keeping a smile on her face!

I would say Debbie is a complete natural with kids of all ages, her own children are younger than mine but she doesn't condescend, and engages them in age-appropriate activities and conversation. I think it's really important for kids to feel listened-to and she has a really great way of genuinely empathising and understanding.

My girls absolutely love spending time with her. They never feel 'babysat' but just enjoy going to 'Debbie's house' and playing with her two gorgeous children, who are polite, well-behaved and a real credit to her parenting. Would definitely recommend highly.

Debbie truly is a wonderful childminder. My children adore spending their time with her and there is often tears to leave her company. I have absolutely no concerns or worry when they are with her as I know they are in loving, dedicated and caring hands. She is an inspiration! Debbie focuses on each child's needs with such compassion and care. Whether that be through play, creativity or conversation. Could not recommend her enough. Her personality shines through when you meet her, her skills cannot be faulted and she will always do her best for you and your child. Five star plus service. So happy to have her on board with me and my children. My kids are so happy in her company.
