My Summary

Ofsted Registered
DBS Check

About Me

I have been working in a nursery setting for several years, which has given me the knowledge and experience to open my own childcare setting. I am registered with Ofsted and have been open since January 2019.

I also have two assistants that work alongside me. My first assistant is Heather Watson, she is a qualified nurse and has worked at Daisy Chain since January 2020. My second assistant is Paige Lee who joined our team in September 2020, she holds a level 5 in childcare and is currently working towards her childcare degree.

Our setting comprises of two dedicated rooms. The main room is a jungle themed playroom, filled with lots of exciting and colourful resources which are appealing to children. The room includes a shopping role play area, a cosy reading corner with sofa and a children’s play tent and tunnel. The second room is designated to creativity, which provides a safe area for messy play activities.

We are lucky to have open fields and horses at the bottom of our garden, which allows us to explore nature and the outdoors.

We are very proud to provide a cosy ‘home from home’ feeling with a happy, friendly atmosphere where children can develop their confidence and learn through play in a safe, warm and caring environment. Our aim is to create a loving place, where children will want to come back again and again.

We look forward to hearing from you to arrange a visit and secure a place.

Leah our daughter has been attending daisy chain for over 12 months , as first time parents picking a childcare provider is a hard decision however my husband and I could not have chosen any better.

Rachael, Paige and Heather are hard working , kind and caring professionals who provide a fun , nurturing environment for children to learn, explore and have hours of fun. Parents are kept well informed on a daily basis.

The team plan fun educational activities , everyday is different on occasions the children visit the local area or go further afield. Daisy chain has provided Leah with numerous new learning experiences. Her personal development and progress has come along due to the dedication of the staff at Daisy Chain. Daisy chain is clean, has lots of facilities for all age ranges of children , provides home cooked meals and above all allows our daughter hours of fun. Leah really looks forward to coming and seeing her friends and having fun filled days with Rachael and team.

We can not thank them enough for all their hard work and support when caring for our daughter.

Our daughter started going to Rachael since January when she was 10 months old. Being our first daughter we were quite apprehensive to leave her with anyone but Rachael knew exactly how to do to settle her in beautifully. Aria absolutely loves going around to play with Rachael and the cries have been long gone.
I totally trust Rachael with caring for Aria, she is also very flexible (My husband and I work long shifts), very organised, sensible, and smiley.
The settings are fantastic, the house is very clean and she always gives Aria healthy and well balanced home made meals.
