My Belief's and methods

I believe that respect for others is important and I endeavour to teach children in my care good manners such as: "please and thank you",table manners & general good behaviour.I always deal with the matter of discipline firmly,but fairly,with the 'timeout' method( mat) & I would always discuss any issues with the parents.I have a natural empathy with children & I enjoy helping them to develop & of course to have fun!

Meals: I do not provide meals on the premises so I do ask parents to provide breakfast( if applicable)packed lunch & snacks.
Throughout the day water will be offered.

I firmly believe in varied activities such as :

Arts & crafts, Toddler groups, farms, Woody walks, play dates with friends,Library for story time & choosing a book, Activity/ Soft play centres,government has allows us!Cooking yummy cakes/ cookies,(my speciality vegan style;) music & parks or just spending time in the home,will enhance children's development and expand their knowledge and confidence helping them to equip them with the necessary skills for life.

I do offer & provide a daily updates to include photos via WhatsApp group for the children in my care.

On the occasions that I take the child/ren from the home environment, ( the Government has allow us!)I am diligent to ensure their safety and well being at all times,whilst enabling them to learn & still be safe. I am part of a Nanny/Child minder circle a friendly and like-minded community of nannies & child minders with their children.

We were so pleased that Debbie could look after baby no.2 once her big sister went to Preschool. Our eldest had such a brilliant time in Debbie's care and now her little sister has the same! It's been lovely getting to know Debbie and her husband over the past 2/3 years and they really have become like part of the family.
We were worried about how our youngest would adjust to childcare being a lockdown baby but after just a couple of weeks she was absolutely fine and built a fantastic relationship with Debbie really quickly. We feel so lucky to have Debbie in our lives and would thoroughly recommend her.

Debbie has been so kind and caring in all that she does. My daughter felt so at home there immediately and we were always welcomed in with open arms! My daughter and I have loved our experiences with Debbie and she was the only lady who could get my daughter to day time nap!! Her husband is also a wonderful man who went above and beyond to make my son smile when we picked up his sister. We have had a truly remarkable time with Debbie

Our little girl (almost 3yrs) loves Debbie and has a wonderful time in her care. She’s excited to go every day and we get a detailed rundown of the fun they’ve had so we can see why! They go for picnics, visits to museums, farms, parks and playgrounds and in Debbies house enjoy crafts and lots of toys and books. Debbie is a warm, trustworthy and helpful person and we’re very happy to thoroughly recommend her to other parents.

We are so pleased we found wonderful Debbie - from the moment we met her we just knew she would provide the perfect care for our little girl. It's so special to see the relationship that she has fostered with our daughter from day one; Pearl always arrives with her arms stretched out for cuddles and we have to tear her away at the end of the day too! It has made it so much easier to be at work knowing that she is being cared for so well. They always have busy days and we love seeing the photos of Pearl at toddler groups, parks and playing with other children. Debbie makes lots of time for indoor fun and craft too which we always get to take home. The daily journal is great and always really detailed information about Pearl's day. We couldn't ask for more and thoroughly recommend Debbie!

Debbie has looked after both my daughters between 2014-2016 and 2016-2018 and I can honestly say she has become part of our family over the years. From the very beginning Debbie has cared for and nurtured them both, providing fun filled days, plenty of activities-the girls have brought some beautiful items home for us to keep, and this also shows how Debbie’s caring nature has developed them into kind, respectful, loving individuals. They always looked forward to going each day and settled in instantly too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, she has been simply amazing and the girls miss their Debbie terribly.
