Donna is an incredible childminder and an amazing human being!

Based on recommendation from two of my friends whose children were already in Donna’s care, we made the decision to move our little girl from a formal nursery setting to Donna’s ‘home from home’ set up and couldn’t be happier with our choice! She is kind and flexible which makes all the difference to a frazzled, working parent. She always has time to chat and gives you an in-depth insight into our daughter’s days.

It is so clear that Donna truly loves the children in her care and they all become part of the family. It is wonderful to see how our little lady, who is an only child, has developed such strong, loving relationships with the other children - all well as with Donna and the other family members. It really is a loving home away from home.

In addition to the exceptional care provided, Donna has also been a God send when it comes to parenting advice. As first time parents it’s easy to get overwhelmed and Donna continues to be there with non-judgmental, practical advice IF we ask for it. 😊 Our girl, and our family, are so lucky to have Donna and her family in our lives.

We started sending our little boy to Donna at the end of lockdown 1, 2020. It has been the best decision for us as a family, Donna is a huge blessing to us and we are incredibly thankful for all she has done for our son. Her love for children and her job shine through from the moment you meet her. Our little boy is content, happy and settled with Donna and has been since the beginning. He has become a part of her family and has also a happy 'family unit' with the other children who attend. Every day he strolls in, beaming and I ALWAYS pick up a tired, well fed and extremely happy little boy. As parents as well, Donna has supported and advised us along the way with the trials and difficulties being parents to a toddler can bring. We cannot recommend Donna highly enough, she truly is a wonderful lady who offers an exceptional and outstanding setting for children.

Donna has looked after 2 of my children for over 7 years. She has always provided a high standard of childcare and been a fantastic childminder. She has taken the children out on many trips to the woods, beach and cinemas. The children are very comfortable with her and the childminding setting. Couldn’t recommend her enough.

Donna has cared for both my children together and at separate times. She has always been so polite, helpful and caring, the kids have always looked forward to going.
She takes pride in her work and the care given comes from such a nice place it is effortless for her, which shows in the great relationships she builds with the children. At times my work has been demanding and Donna has been so flexible to accommodate this too. I can’t recommend her enough. The home is always clean and welcoming and the environment is a happy one.

Donna is a brilliant childminder who centres her practice around the needs of the children. My daughter has been going to Donna’s full-time since she was 9 months old and she has thrived under Donna’s care. Donna provides a home-from-home setting and treats the children like they are members of her family. I can’t fault the service she provides and I am so happy she is involved in my daughter’s upbringing. We are lucky to have Donna in our lives!
