About Me

I have two children of my own a boy and a girl. My eldest son is full time at school and my daughter attends a local preschool. I live in a lovely friendly village. I drive a super safe Volvo XC60 with a clean license. I like taking the children on local outings to the library, parks, soft play, children’s groups, woodland nature walks and our allotment as I think it’s important for children to get fresh air and be outside. I offer a home from home setting in my house and have a good garden space to. I hold a full DBS as does my partner.

My Experience

I have been Childminding since September 2018 when I registered with Ofsted. I also have many years experience in nursery work and adult care specialising in learning difficulties. All this experience has made me the patient, calm and collected childminder I am.

Dana has had my daughter since 9 months old and helps with my sons childcare during the school holidays, they both absolutely love going! Dana provides such a safe place for my children and respects and reinforces all requests I have ever requested! While giving them so much love and attention, she also takes them on days out, does so many different activities with them that as a parent you may not have the time to do and provides so many resources to help them learn and grow. It's the perfect home from home setting and we feel so lucky to have such a fantastic childminder!

Dana has been looking after my 4 year old boy for over a year now. He spends half his time at Pre-School and the other half at Dana’s, and, whilst he likes going to pre-school he absolutely adores going to Dana’s! With starting reception in September he is so upset to be leaving her care, albeit we have vowed to keep in touch.
Dana provides a warm child friendly setting in her home, activities vary from week to week and include baking, craft, soft play, outdoor walks and play, baby toddler groups, singing/dancing and much more, managing to entertain and educate at all levels (how she does it I don’t know)! Dana also has a close circle of other childminder friends meaning my boy has grown socially and made many other friends too. In addition to all of this my son’s behaviour has improved significantly as a result of Dana’s support and expertise in managing this at an individual level. She is professional, considerate, flexible and much more. We cannot recommend her care highly enough and hoping our latest addition to the family will be able to go to Dana too!

Both my boys have been going to Dana's for 9 months and they absolutely love it with her. She provides wrap around care for my eldest (3) and full day care for my youngest (2). She offers a range of activities to educate and nurture from baking, painting, walking in the woods, trips to the airfield and many more and she always ensures they have plenty of healthy snacks too. I would definitely recommend her as a lovely childminder.

Thank you so much for your kind words it’s always a pleasure to have your boys x

My little boy has been going to Dana’s since he was 10 months old- he absolutely adores going there. He loves Dana and the other children, they go on a variety of outings and he just seems to have non stop fun all day. So much so he cries when he has to leave!! Dana is extremely professional and has a gorgeous home that is well equipped with activities to develop children within all areas of learning. He has come on leaps and bounds socially. I can honestly say it was the hardest thing I have ever done having to leave him for he first time however I really appreciated Dana’s kindness and support- she really is such a wonderful lady. I’m so grateful to have her looking after my little boy and hoping that when I go back to work she has space for my little lady too!
