Debbie has been looking after my little boy since October 2017 (9 months old). Debbie was the first and only child minder that I looked into as on my first visit I was very much welcomed into a home from home setting, which I really wanted for my little boy and she came across as a very passionate, open and honest person.
I have seen a massive change in my little boy’s development since being with Debbie; he has developed into a confident little boy who is not afraid to try new activities or new foods. He always looks forward to going to her house.
Debbie encourages the children through a wide range of activities and no day is the same she will often spend time coming up with new fun things to entertain the children this can be anything from messy play to water fun, drawing and painting. She encourages the children to learn about the world around them.
She will often send me up to date pictures of what my little boy has been doing that day and what new things he has learnt. Which I really appreciate as being a working mum these always bring a smile to my face and I can see how he has developed. Debbie and I will have regular conversations regarding my little boy’s progress.
Debbie provides lovely home cooked meals which my little boy loves and she has encouraged him to use a spoon and folk.
Debbie is a very passionate child minder and I’m very happy with the level of care she provides, I can’t recommend her enough.

Debbie has been looking after my little girl since she was 9months old and she is now 6. Can't fault her at all and always does as much as she can with the children. My daughter loves going to Debbie's and I always get told different things that they have done when I pick her up.

My 3 year old son has been going to Debbie's since he was 9 months old and I am more than satisfied with the level of care she gives. She is caring, considerate, and flexible. He is fed well and Debbie ensures that he is stimulated daily with numerous activities and learning opportunities. She even gave me a book showing Joe's happy moments and progress from being a baby to the present day. Debbie also takes my son out to various playgroups and is always keeping me up to date by sending pictures by Whatsapp. I would definitely recommend Debbie as a childminder.

My daughter currently goes to Debbie every Thursday and Friday, Brooke (my daughter) loves Debbie, her husband Chris and their daughter Katy, she has helped develop Brooke fantastically, her speech and knowledge has come on in leaps and bounds these last 6 months she has been going to Debbie's, she's had lots of outings to the farm, the parks and play areas which has helped develop her understanding of sharing and communicating well with other children. Big credit to Debbie for doing an amazing job and making the days fun and educational, thank you xx
