About Me

Hello my name is Dawn and I live in Middleton. I am a Ofsted registered Childminder recently Graded GOOD on my inspection July 19

I live with my three children, my Son is 12 and my eldest Daughter is 9 years old. I also have a 6 year old daughter.

I am a completely SMOKE FREE home.

In my setting I ensure daily indoor and outdoor play. I have a safe and secure garden which has a trampoline and slide and many other toys and activities that can be enjoyed outside.
Throughout Spring and Summer we grow some fruit and vegetables in our garden.

As well as general play I offer crafts, painting, messy play, sand and water table, gardening, cooking, I.T, baking and story time. We make regular trips to the local park, children's centres, Playgroup’s and also trips to museums, indoor play areas, open farms etc.

I follow the EYFS and my aim is to ensure that both Children and Parents are happy with my care which involves many activities to help to support a child to learn through play.

I offer healthy snacks during the day and home cooked meals. Water is always available, alongside fresh fruit juice and sugar free diluted juice. I do not offer fizzy drinks.

Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

My son was cared for by Dawn for 18 months. I couldnt have picked a better childminder if i tried. With Lewis being my first child, she made me feel at ease and i knew he was in safe hands. Dawn has always been caring, professional, cheerful, flexible and understanding. Dawn is very creative and interactive with the children she cares for and often takes them out to playgroups where she contributes to developing their social skills and encourages them to interact together, i cant thank Dawn and her wonderful family enough for all their help and support. I would recommend Dawn to all my friends and family! Thank you xx
