About Me

Hi my name is Dawn and I’m proud to have received the highest Ofsted OUTSTANDING rating. I drop off/pick up from Gleadless primary school. I have been childminding since 2000, and love the job I do. I have 2 grown sons, a young granddaughter and baby grandson. I offer a home from home environment rich in fun and laughter, however boundaries are set in place to ensure respect and safety. I have a large range of resources available including small world, building, crafts, role/imaginative play, music/movement books ect. I have a large enclosed garden for outdoor play. I like to get out every day regardless of the weather this includes the local shop to buy snacks or ingredients for baking, the library, various parks/play areas and local environment. My last Ofsted inspection grading was outstanding. I can offer references from parents.
