About Me

Hi, my name is Veronica Donnelly and I have been a childminder for 29 years. I have five children of my own aged between 22 and 33, and four grandchildren aged between 9 and 2. I have always lived in Great Barr and do school drop offs and collections from St Marks RC primary school and Holy Name Nursery. I have been graded Good by Ofsted and have uploaded my report for you to view.

My home is a clean and safe environment for children to explore and learn in. I have a very large garden and outside playroom which all the children love and alot of the time they don't want to go home. I provide a wide range of activites for the children to take part it and also have a wide range of resources.

My Experience

I have been a childminder for 29 years and absolutely love my job. I enjoy looking after and caring for children ensuring they feel safe at all times. I always keep up to date with relevant training and I implement and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage. I have looked after children of all age groups and have strong relationships with all my families. My daughter Sarah has been working with me as my assistant over the last 2 years which has been a great addition to the setting.

Veronica and Sarah were a God sent for us. They have been looking after our daughter since she was 6 months old. We have always find them to be very friendly and welcoming. Children there always seem to be happy and enjoying themselves. They are very creative and keep the children interested in activities indoors and in the garden. Our daughter has always been very happy in there. She call Veronica her nanny.
Veronica and Sarah are very helpful and always try their best to do everything they can to makes it easier for parents. Particularly with their flexibility in early opening times.
They have very spacious and amazing garden, play area in the house and in the white room.
Definitely highly recommended.

Veronica has looked after both my girls since they were around 9 months old, they are now in junior and senior school. Her house and garden are a lovely happy setting that is well equipped with educational and fun equipment. She is always very welcoming and loving to the girls who say she is like another nanny to them. They both enjoy spending time there and can't wait to tell me all about their day.

When choosing a childminder for my daughter when i returned to work after maternity leave, i was very anxious about choosing the right one. Veronica and Sarah were recommended to me. I can honestly say i made the right decision because they have had my daughter in their care since she was 8 months old and she is now 2 years old. My daughter loves going to their home an is always happy to go and happy there, she loves playing with all the children and her development since she has been there has really come along. Sarah and Veronica do a lot of amazing activities with the children and are always sending work my daughter has done home to show me. Veronica's home is lovely always clean and tidy and her back garden is a child's dream, my daughter loves spending time in there. I can not recommend Veronica and Sarah enough, they are amazing people and childminders.

I have sent two of my children to Veronica and Sarah and honestly they have the best time ever. My youngest who still attends says 'going to nanny's'. I am able to leave him and know he his in the best care whilst i am at work. He always has a fun filled day and i get lovely photos and updates sent through to my phone throughout the day. He loves both Veronica and Sarah and has so much fun in their lovely garden! When he comes home he loves telling us all about his day!

Veronica and Sarah are lovely, I wouldn’t send my boys anywhere else in their early years. They have learnt so much from them and they just think of going to Veronica’s like they are of to their nanny’s house! A nice home from home environment that made them and me feel very relaxed when I 1st had to leave them. They do all sorts of different activities and learn different skills to prepare them for school. They have always kept me up to date with anything they need to when they have been in their care. Couldn’t recommend them any more!
