I’ve Been Using Dionne childcare services since 2015 , honestly she’s the Best! They always goes up and beyond for my daughter. My daughter absolutely loves going to the settings. They always ensure that my daughter do fun and educational activities everyday as well as going on little trips at least once a week. My daughter always have such wonderful thing to say about her day when I pick her up. The food selection is great as well as tasty. Dionne does little coffee mornings for parents every now and then , each year I look forward to her amazing Christmas dinner with other parents. I’m so grateful for Dionne and her team. Thank you all for all that you do , all your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.

Thank you Kayola for giving me and the team such a wonderful review. We truly appreciate it. Thank you very much for supporting our childcare settings and trusting me and the team to take care of your daughter. She is a very talented, loving and caring child. Xx

We have been sending our 18 month old to Dionnes for the past year and she is amazing. She is a powerhouse of energy and good vibes. Our son immediately felt at home there and looked forward to going. Dionne and her team are always doing activities with the kids and he comes home with the latest picture he's created or thing he's been doing. Big smiles and looking pleased with himself! The range of activities and thought that goes into the kids day is as good as we've seen at other, much larger nursery's (he's our third child so we've seen a fair few!).

She does run the business from her flat, but I would not let that put you off. It's always spotless, the staff are always attentive and by all accounts, the food is very good (we love the selection he has - Dionne regularly sends pictures of him with the latest world cuisine.)

Anyway, she's an absolute find.

Thanks

Ben

Thank you Ben for giving me and the team such a wonderful review, we appreciate it so much. We also wanted to thank you and your wife for trusting us to take care of your son. He is a joy to have in our setting. X

My son is in Dionne’s settings 3 days per week and am telling y’all he comes home every week with drawings laminated stuff, the different activities they make on a daily basis, they do some much activities such as sing a long each evening he would be singing a different nursery rhymes, and doing the action along with it, I know for a fact it helps my son’s learning skills and developments.
Dionne, Ciana and crystal is doing a very good job with these kids they are so patient, humble and loving sometimes I drop my son off he would be crying then the girls would just take his hands and walk him into the activity area and in no time he would be singing along.
These girls pays attention are vertical attentive and very professional when it comes to the children I have seen and observed for myself.
Ladies continued doing your best!!

Thank you Elaine for giving me and the team such a wonderful review its very much appreciated. Thank you for trusting us to take good care of your son. We will continue the journey for another fantastic year of play and learning development. Thank you very much for supporting our childcare settings and our team. Xx

My two boys have been with Dionne and her two co-workers since September 2017, aged then 2.5yrs and my youngest only 10mths. This was the first time we were looking for a childminder, so we were nervous and apprehensive. Dionne came recommended by a fellow colleague so we thought we would have a visit.
Straight away any apprehension we had disappeared, she made us feel at ease and the boys were instantly interacting with Chrystal and Ciana.

Dionne recently has had a make over in her setting making it very interactive with lots of crafts, educational toys and a story corner making the most of her space. She will also be commencing Forest School with the children which I know my youngest will love!

I cant recommend Dionne and the girls enough; Dionne has always been accommodating to us if needed and I fully trust her and the staff with my two children who have done nothing but grow since being with her.

My oldest boy has sadly left and is starting school in September, but we were eager to keep our youngest there as we know how much he loves it.

Thank you Dionne, Chrystal and Ciana for everything - we would be lost without you!

Thank you Lisa for giving me and the team such a lovely review its very much appreciated. We love having the boys as a part of our setting, and we just love their bright, funny wonderful personalities, they are an absolute pleasure to look after. Thank you once again, for trusting us to take good care of your boys. We wish child 1 the best of luck in his new school and I know he will do amazing. We will continue the journey with child 2 for another fantastic year of play and learning development. Xx

Our daughter has been with Dionne for three days a week since she turned one. Having met with a few childminders I knew we’d found the right match as soon as we met Dionne.

At our first meeting Dionne made a connection with our daughter. She was also incredibly comfortable with the paperwork side of the business, which I was really impressed with, this was something I’d seen at nurseries I’d visited but had been lacking with other childminders.

With the range of toys and equipment available, and the other children attending, we feel we get all the benefits of a nursery but with the additional personal bond and comfortable home setting.

Both assistants are also wonderful. Our daughter made a particular bond with one of them, which Dionne really encouraged, and it helped her initial settling in as well as her long term attachment in the setting.

Dionne has been really flexible and accommodating when we’ve had work commitments outside our usual childminding days, and she has even invited our daughter in for free to attend additional days for Christmas parties etc. This was so lovely and inclusive.

Dionne communicates really well, reporting on daily activities, meals, sleep and learning. She’s always keen to work closely with us on specific learning or guidance issues to ensure a cohesive approach both at home and in the setting.

Our daughter clearly loves her days with Dionne and the team. We can’t recommend them highly enough.
