About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

My name is Marie Deans and i am a OFSTED registered Childminder. I work alongside my husband Chris who acts as my assistant and together we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We have 2 children, Charlie (8) and Rosie (6) and along with all the children we care for we are one big happy family. We live in a large 3 bedroom detached home in Consett with a large enclosed garden. The garage has been converted into a playroom which is full of toys and resources to encourage and ensure your children meet all aspects of the EYFS. We provide home from home childcare in a safe and happy environment, with lots of activities to suit your children's needs and development as well as organised trips to toddler/baby groups, softplay, the park and farm. We also practice forest childcare using local parks and woodland to use natural materials to promote leaning and development. We also have an allotment which we visit with the children to collect the eggs from our small flock of chickens and grow a variety of vegetables to encourage the children to grow and eat their own produce.
We offer funded 2,3 and 4 year old childcare places subject to availability. Please feel free to message with any queries and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Marie is an incredible childminder who goes above and beyond to provide the best. My son attended her setting before and after nursery. He has food allergies and Marie quickly had up to date training and researched his allergies. She made food from scratch any always kept me up to date with what he had eaten. I always felt my son was in safe hands. Marie provided my son with many hands on experiences, days out and activities in line with his Early Years objectives. My son was very happy in this setting and felt very much part of the family.

Marie is an adorable lady, she’s looking after my twins and they absolutely love her, she’s kind, very professional, I can go to work without worrying because I know my kids are safe and really happy.
Thanks Marie for being such a great childminder
