Really love this childminder, feel complete confidence when leaving my son with her. She acts professionally and polite and happy to give my son a cuddle if needs be which was important to me. Always consults you and keeps you up to date with any progress.
Wonderful childminder and my son loves her.

Thank you Amie, we love having him too! Xx
I got in touch with Debbie via this website back in 2013 in preparation for the dreaded return to work following maternity leave with my daughter. It was the best decision for us and my daughter has thrived in Debbie's care.
My daughter spent 3 years in Debbie's care and I would recommend her services to anyone needing a reliable, caring, professional childminder.
Debbie always kept us informed of our daughter's day, even providing messages and photos during the day, which was such a nice touch that really helped us as first time parents and put our minds at rest.
My daughter loves Debbie and family and really bonded with them. My daughter developed so much in her time with Debbie. She's just started preschool and the teachers all comment on well she behaves and Debbie has played a big part in that.

Thank you for a lovely review.x
Debbie has cared for our daughter for 3 years, starting when she was 14 months old, during this time Debbie and her family has provided a consistent excellent and professional service. I was obviously anxious about leaving my daughter for the first time, but Debbie instantly put my mind at rest by providing updates throughout the day, sending me photos of my daughter happily playing and undertaking numerous planned activities such as arts and crafts, feeding ducks in the park, play groups and soft play. She always provides a safe, stimulating environment for children and always encourages their individual development, both academic and social.
Debbie provides parents with detailed reports on their children's behaviour, skills and progress. These provide details on personal, social and emotional development, self confidence, communication, language , health and self care amongst other things and prove to be very useful for parents.
I have found Debbie to have a soft, caring and empathetic approach towards the children that promotes good values, manners and respect. At times, like all young children, my daughter is no angel, however I have always felt comfortable with the firm but gentle approach taken when challenging behaviour.
I cannot recommend her highly enough, In 3 years, my daughter has never once said " I don't want to go to Debbie's" which is proof enough for me that she does a brilliant job. If my daughter is happy then I am happy, and my daughter has always been happy in Debbie's childcare. I can not think of anyone I would trust more to care for my daughter.
Thank you so much x

Thank you for a lovely review, it makes what I do so worth while.
Debbie looked after my son from 6 months old.
She was very accommodating and he settled quickly. She sent regular images of my son joining in with activities. And we never had any problems. Highly recommended x
I started working with Debbie October 2011 when my eldest daughter was 9 months old. I was very unsure of what to expect and anxious of leaving her with somebody that we didn't know. Debbie was the first childminder I met while I was looking and the only one. The first time I met her in her home and saw some of the other children that she looked after and how they reacted to her I knew instantly that this was the place for my baby. Its now 2016 and my eldest has started school but I have since given birth to two more children who both go to Debbie. In 2015 we moved to over 7 miles away and it would have been easier on both my husband and I to find a local childminder but that was never an option. You could not ask for a more dedicated, safe and caring childminder then Debbie. We have never had a single gripe or complaint about anything that Debbie does with our children. We recieve regular up dates and photos of their activites. Debbie regualrly takes the children to play groups the lickey hills and the local parks and duck ponds. Debbie also works towards the early learning targets and encourages the children to learn. Even if they are home all day there is a wide range of activities that they take part in. My middle child has food intolerances and Debbie is very aware of what he can and can not eat and deals with him accordingly. I also know Debbies family and assisstant and they are all lovely and again feel fully confident with the children being around them. They are generally distressed at leaving than they are at being left! My children love coming here (my son is a funny little boy and calls her "my Debbie"), and I can honestly say I am not looking forward to September 2018 when my youngest will be moving on and our time together comes to an end.
Thank you for everything you really are beyond excellent.
Lots of Love xxxx
