About Me


I am pleased to announce that I have reopened as of 1st June (since previous government closure due to Covid19) and welcome you to message me if you are looking for childcare.

Thank you so much for considering me to care for your child.

As a Mum myself, I understand how difficult it can be to leave your child in the hands of someone else. I hope to make this transition a little easier for you and your child.

We are a family of four, sharing our lovely home in Purbrook. I am Ofsted registered and hold a Level 3 certificate in Childminding along with a Paediatric First aid certificate.

At Dinky Daycare I aim to provide an interesting learning environment that will prepare children for the first day of school and beyond. I am a fun and energetic person who loves to be outside in the fresh air whenever possible. I combine child-led and adult-led activities in order to develop skills and ensure your child is never bored.

Your needs and your child's needs are my top priority. My focus is to ensure your little one is safe, content and happy to be left with me whilst you are busy at work. I work closely with parents to make sure daily routines are maintained and a healthy and active learning environment is provided.

So please drop me a message and we can work together to find the best option for you.

My Experience

I have 10yrs experience looking after little ones and recent experience working with children with special needs.

My Qualifications

I am Ofsted registered. I hold a current level 3 certificate in Childminding along with Paediatric First Aid certificate and DBS certificate.

My little boy has been at Dinky Daycare for a couple of months now and loves going to Sams house! Sam keeps her house clean & tidy and has a large array of toys and activities, plus a good sized garden to allow outdoor play. They are always going on little adventures and days out which is so much better for Arthur when compared to his previous nursery setting. Thank you Sam - we are glad we found you!
