About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

My names Donna and I've been a childminder for 23 years and absolutely love my job. My last Ofsted Inspection was held in May 2019 where I was awarded 'Good' The children in my care enjoy playing/interacting in the large purposely built playroom/extension and secure grassed garden. Children have the opportunity to engage in lots of activities encouraging them to have fun, explore and interact/engage with other children of different age ranges within a warm and friendly family setting. The children never get bored! I drop off and collect from West Heath Primary School mornings/afternoons. I am a non-smoker and live with my family (all registered with Ofsted) and two grandsons. We do have pets and the children in my care are given an opportunity to feed and look after them if they want to. Thank you for stopping by - please contact me to arrange a visit if you would like to know more. Many thanks Donna.

My Experience

Over the last 23 years, I have gained a vast amount of experience with looking after children from all age groups from newborn to 11 years. I have 10 years of experience in Inclusion work and I have been a foster carer. I like to encourage a child's learning to help them reach their full potential. I am positive, sensible and caring and the children in my care are safe and happy. The feedback I have received from parents has always been positive.

My Qualifications

I am Ofsted registered. I was part of the inclusion scheme for ten years working with children with Special Educational Needs. Courses attended have included: NSPCC Child Protection, Managing Children's Behaviour, Introduction to Autism and Spectrum Disorders, Food Hygiene and I am first aid trained.

My Availability

My opening hours are between 6am - 8 pm, 7 days per week (including school holidays) allowing flexibility for full-time, part-time and/or shift work parents/carers. I can also cater for school holiday care only. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Our son was with Donna for 2and a half years. We both worked long hours and found finding suitable childcare a challenge.
Donna has been amazing. Our son loved going to hers and we always thought he was in safe hands. She was really flexible with times and never let us down.

Thank you so much for your kind words I was only doing my job I am going to miss you. 😘

I have 3 children that Donna looks after and my kids love going to her house. She caters to their every needs and would go out her way if I needed extra help with the kids. I would recommend Donna to anyone that is looking for childcare
