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.
Debbie has been looking after my little boy for over 4months now. He was 8months old when he started to go to her house twice a week. I was very nervous leaving him and returning to work, but Debbie was so kind and considerate it made the whole thing a lot less stressful.
I originally looked at nurseries early on, but now having been with Debbie, I can't imagine how much worse I would have felt leaving him in a room with 5…6…10 other little ones! I know that at Debbie's he has all the attention he needs, and while I'm at work, I know that he is safe, happy, and loved.
I love how it has turned out for us. He is by himself for one day , so he gets aaaallll the attention and meets lots of new friends (Debbie sometimes meets up with other childminder friends and their little ones). The other day he is with her she also has two little girls in her care, who he adores watching play and run around. He will be chasing them soon enough!
I chose to go to Debbie because of the fantastic reviews i read on this website and I'm so glad we did.
I would definitely recommend Debbie and i plan to send baby number 2 in her direction when needed!
My little girl has been with Debbie for nearly a year and a half and Arabelle just loves going to see her Debbie, she gets so excited when ringing the doorbell. Debbie is a kind and loving childminder and I am always at ease knowing that my little girl is being well looked after and having a wonderful time. Arabelle has learnt so much with Debbie for example taking her shoes and coat off at the door and being more independent at feeding herself at meal times. I get updates and photos throughout the week which always puts a smile on my face at work. We get a diary everyday so we are kept up to date with all of Arabelle’s activities. We are are very lucky we found this wonderful lady.
It is so lovely to see my daughter so happy when she goes to Debbie three days a week. My husband and I wanted someone who would love and give our one year old the attention she needs to grow and thrive and we feel so wonderful that we have found that person in Debbie. We get updates and a journal of her progress day by day and get to keep projects that she has done in the day. I was a little worried about going back to work but me and my husband agree that we feel at ease knowing that Debbie is taking good care of our little one. We are so very happy.
My son started going to Debbie's when he was a year old, and we have been delighted with her care. From photo updates during the day for peace of mind to daily reviews of eating, drinking, sleeping and activities, we couldn't want for a better person to look after him. He regularly comes home with art projects they've done during the day and is happy to see her at drop off and tired but happy at pick up. He is 14 months now and goes for two 8 hour days each week so that I have time with his younger brother and to catch up on sleep and housework. I am also very impressed with the full developmental assessment that Debbie keeps a record of and updates, I know that having time with her helps both him and me. Very happy mummy and all in walking distance!
I needed one off childcare for my 2.5 year old son as we were going to a funeral in Farnborough. We live in Kent, so knew no childminders in Hampshire. I found Debbie on this site and immediately felt at ease with her. She had my son for 5 hours and he was totally at ease with her, even wishing to stay longer when we came to collect him. Without doubt I would highly recommend her. Thank you Debbie.
Debbie has been caring for our 22 month old daughter Florence for just 2 months but she has settled in so well it's like she's been doing it forever.
One of the things that instantly made us decide that Debbie was the childminder for us, was her bubbly, friendly personality, and her experience & passion for providing excellent quality childcare in a friendly, warm setting.
Florence absolutely adores her and gets so excited each day when we drop her off, ready for another fun filled day, and always comes home a little tired but very happy.
Debbie provides lots of educational toys and takes Florence out regularly to soft play, a farm or the park. In the short space of time Debbie has been caring for Florence, we have seen her development reach a new level. She comes home with a new word or something that shows us what she's learned that day. We have also had a lovely daily update by way of a diary & photos of what Florence has been learning & where she has been that day. This is testament to Debbie's vast experience in childcare, one which we would say is incomparable.
We have complete piece of mind knowing Florence is in excellent hands and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Debbie to other parents. We have a fantastic relationship with her, and hope this will continue for many months to come.
Our two children will miss her a lot even though she was only with us for a relatively short period of time (to cover a much needed holiday for mum).
They bonded with her very quickly and the relationship she has with them has grown over the last four weeks. Lots of laughter, cuddles, playing and very occasional appropriate discipline when required.
Debbie worked as a nanny for us from November 2012 through March 2013, with before school and after school (to 6pm) care of three children, 14, 12 and 7 including the school runs.
Debbie was a wonderful nanny, always happy and smiling, always a helping-hand to the kids with homework, punctual, reliable and delightful to have looking after our children.
Due to a change in our circumstances we no longer required the services of a nanny, and reluctantly had to say goodbye to Debbie today (28/3/13)
We have no hesitation in recommending Debbie to anyone seeking a nanny or childminder whatsoever, and we wish Debbie every success in finding her next role.
