About Me

Hello, I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Leigh on Sea, with close links to Eastwood and Westcliff on Sea, and quick assess to the A127. I am a happily married mum of two children, Max who was born in December 2013 and Molly who was born in May 2016.

I offer a friendly and nurturing ‘home from home' environment where all families are made to feel welcome and respected. Your child will receive individual attention as well as gaining social skills from interaction with my own children and the other children in my care.

We enjoy regular visits to local parks, farms, woods, the beach and the library various play groups.

I offer home cooked meals and healthy snacks.

I work to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), providing a range of toys and activities and opportunities for both learning inside and outdoors.

My Experience

Having used both a nursery and a childminder to care for my own children, I understand how difficult it can be to leave your child in someone else's care. I love being a mum and am passionate about providing excellent care. I have been a childminder now for over two years and absolutely love it!

Where do I start? Donna is the most kind and caring person you’ll ever meet, my son has been with Donna since 9 months old his now nearly 4 years old! she’s like a second mum to him. Aidan really enjoys going and loves all the activities, her home cooked meals are delicious and apparently her cooking is better than mine 😂 . Aidan’s made some good friends along the way too. Donna is very accommodating and her setting and leaning is of high standard, Donna as been very informative with regards to the pandemic and gives out current government guidelines, her setting is very very clean and children are encouraged to wash their hands regularly, all toys are washed and sanitised to, i definitely give Donna 100% she’s Eastwood answer to Mary Poppins and we love her !

I have used Donna for nearly a year now and she has been amazing, my daughter settled very well with Donna and has learnt so much from her and all the activities she has done. Donna is very informative and always happy to help and be flexible.

Donna is an excellent childminder and I am over the moon that she has been able to provide my daughter with a place within her setting for the last 9 months. My daughter loves being at her home and has formed a special relationship with Donna and all of the children in her care. Donna always arranges fun activities for the children regardless of the season and my daughter very much enjoys trips to the local playgroups, parks and other special trips.

I would not hesitate in recommending Donna to anyone who wants to leave their precious babies and be safe in knowledge they are being looked after to the highest standard.
