I live with my partner and two children aged nineteen and twelve in the Broadwater area of Stevenage. I provide care and education for babies and children from birth to eight years of age. I am an ofsted registered childminder. I have attended a course to be a home-based child carer, which included first-aid and safeguarding courses.
My aim is to provide a safe, happy, fun and stimulating setting. My partner daughter and I are both CRB/DBS checked. I operate a no-smoking policy on my premises, and my home is a pet free environment.
I worked as a nanny in London for many years before having my own children. I have been registered as a childminder for 8 years.

I met Dawn through my eldest child's primary school. Therefore when my youngest was born and it was time to return to work she was the obvious choice. She offers a warm caring homely environment. Our daughter was and is welcomed into Dawn's home as one of the family. The care Dawn offers is tailored to the children she is looking after. She works closely with us as parents to make sure that the care our little one receives is consistent with our approach, loving and just what our daughter needs.
As L goes through school I have no hesitation in asking Dawn to provide care through the holidays and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a Childminder.
My son has been going to Dawn's since the age of 6 months and he absolutely loves it. As a parent I needed a child minder who would give my child the same love, affection and devotion that I hubris Don and Dawn is now like a second mother to him. He absolutely loves going to Dawn's and he thoroughly enjoys spending time with Dawn's family. The service is second to none and I thoroughly recommended Dawn.
My partner and I knew Dawn was right for us from the first time we met her. Our son went to her from 6 months old and he loved it from day one. I was very apprehensive about sending him at this early age, but Dawn gave me the confidence I needed to know my son would be ok. He is like one of the family now and I am so sad to have to leave. If my family's circumstances ever change, I wouldn't want anyone else to look after him. Her husband and two children are wonderful also and her home is safe and clean. I really couldn't ask for anything more!
I can thoroughly recommend Dawn. I met her at playgroup when our boys were 3 months old and I had no choice but to go back to work, I didn't want to use anyone else to look after my son.
Knowing someone first is a lucky step into such a trusting relationship between Mother and Childminder and Dawn is so honest, open, straightforward and thoughtful, I knew that my son would be well looked after.
She offers a child friendly house meaning that she hits the balance of cleanliness that requires little ones to have respect, but that is not too tidy that it doesn't have any warm and freedom for freeplay.
She allows the children to be social and meet others, and also spends time with them to bring them on with understanding the world.
I am sure that as I need her less and less (now that my son is at full time school), we will remain friends... it is hard not to like her!!!
