About Me

Hello, my name is Dawn and I’m an Ofsted registered childminder in the Welling area, with 28 years of experience. I am also a member of the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY).

I’m based in Welling and live in a 3 bedroom semi-detached house with my partner of 30 years who is also my assistant. Local transport links are strong, I’m only a 5 minute walk from Falconwood station and the B15 bus route runs past my house.

I have 3 adorable cats. They are child friendly and in the past the children have loved helping to get involved and take care of them.

I offer dedicated care and education in a warm and welcoming environment. I have a well-stocked playroom with an excellent range of toys and resources to enable your child to learn and develop in a fun and friendly way.

Indoor activities include painting, play-dough, arts and crafts, baking, story and song time. I also have a generous garden with a swing, see saw and slide; other outdoor activities include sand and water play, planting seeds and bulbs and access to a selection of bikes, scooters and balls.

Oxlea woods are on our doorstep and so offer the opportunity for additional outdoor space and a chance to spot wildlife. Other outings include farm visits, playgroups and soft play areas.

My partner and I are both CRB certified/checked.

My Experience

I have 28 years of experience in providing care for babies and children between the ages of 5 months to 14 years. I pride myself on raising children in a stimulating yet fun environment and I am able to provide a range of excellent references from previous parents.

In my last OFSTED inspection I was graded GOOD.

Dawn has looked after my daughter since she was 9 months old. She is now 9 years old and I cannot recommend her more highly. She is kind and caring and I have absolute trust in her looking after my daughter. She has a great understanding of children and every day spent with her is fun and stimulating.

It is a daunting prospect to leave your child with someone you do not know, but from the minute Dawn opened the door to us 9 years ago, I felt instantly relieved and confident my daughter would be well looked after. If you are looking for a childminder that is reliable, helpful, professional and trustworthy, look no further than Dawn.
