About Me

Hello My name is Amanda and I am an Ofsted registered Childminder for Davis Childminding Services a husband and wife team and we achieved a Good grade in our 2017 Ofsted inspection.

I have always loved spending time with children and since the birth of my daughter I have surrounded myself with children from all walks of life in play settings such as groups run by private/voluntary and local authorities and I discovered a great passion for developing children of all ages.

My Experience

Colin and I have a daughter aged 9 she is lively and fun loving so we are used to being as busy as bees

We socialise in playgroups all over the Ashfield areas.

We love our allotment for learning opportunities and visit the local Portland park as it has lots to see and do and is just a short walk from our detached home in Kirkby in Ashfield

We visit many places including historical places of interest i.e Sherwood pines, Wollaton Hall, Newsted Abbey and Rufford Abbey.

Just as a nurseries do, we plan tasks, play and activities around all cultures and link each of the sessions to ensure your child has a varied experience day on day.

We believe in "Every Child Matters" and work alongside other local registered childminders who are like minded.

We have an extensive portfolio which includes all the required literature for parents and carers which will enable me to work with children and their families to ensure they grow in every way :-)

A full list of services and charges are available.

It has to be said that this lady is fantastic with children. She has helped my family out looking after my two sons over the past 15 months or so and they have really enjoyed every moment they have had with her and the other children while in Amanda's care. They have been out on numerous trips, been to interesting places and have done many creative things while in her care.

Unfortunately now our family circumstances have changed and we are moving home and things financially will be tighter for a while until were all settled.

My boys are sad to leave her care as they enjoyed so much while with her and the other children.

I cannot reccomend this lady enough to anyone who is looking for help with their children and childcare issues. Be sure she is very professional and friendly. They are also a great family and we shall remain intouch I hope.

So stop looking and ask if Amanda can help, you will not get anyone nicer.

Thank you again Amanda for everything you have helped our family with :-) x

My daughter has recently left Amanda but not through choice but because of going to school otherwise I would have loved Gracie to stay in Amanda's care. My husband and i were extremely happy with Amanda's professionalism, very thorough, each day planned. It was comforting going to work knowing my daughter was in good hands and Amanda was although there to reassure me that Gracie was settled.I wouldn't have any hesitations in recommending Amanda, you'll be more than happy with the service she provides and the loving, caring environment she creates. Thank you for everything.

Amanda looked after my little girl (5 months) when I returned to work, and I felt that my little girl was in safe hands, in a safe environment. I was always fully updated with my little girls day, and she seemed relaxed\and content in Amanda's care. Lots of Activities and outings to keep children occupied too!

i recently visited amanda with regards to childcare for my son, on first impressions she seems like a very nice lady,kind and enthusiastic. Although i have decided not to put my son in childcare at the moment i would not hesitate to call amanda if in the future i decided to look into it again.
