About Me

My name is Donna and I am an Ofsted registered childminder living in Titchfield Common. I have two grown up children and two gorgeous grandchildren.
I am also a member of PACEY and attend their online seminars and courses to keep my training updated.
My husband, Eddy ,works alongside me at Stepping Stones Childminding. He is a qualified teacher and has had many years experience working with a variety of different age ranges in schools. We both hold full Paediatric First Aid Qualifications and regularly update our DBS certificates.
I will provide a warm, safe and friendly home environment in which children feel valued, can play, learn and develop.
We have a bright and airy play room which has free flow into a secure garden. We have a second room which is used for quieter activities.
We have a purpose built bathroom for the children to use. This has a baby changing station as well as handwashing facilities.
We offer the children a wide range of activities both indoors and outdoors- including lots of sensory play and a mud kitchen in the garden.
We have access to many playparks , the beach ,woodlands and local shops and libraries. We incorporate these in our learning.
I am happy to drop off and collect children from local schools and pre-schools.
I have Public Liability Insurance and Business Use car insurance.
I have a comprehensive Information Booklet that explains our ethos and what we have to offer in more depth. Please contact us if you would like a copy.

My Experience

I have worked as a pre-school supervisor, 1-1 with a child with severe visual impairment and I have many years experience of working with children with special needs.

I am also able to make and use resources to help children if required such as; P.E.C.s, visual aids schedules and Makaton Sign Language.
I have worked within Early Years Foundation Stage and also with older children-up to the age of eleven.
