About Me

Ofsted Good Provider Logo

My name is Amy Dudley, I have 11yr old twin, I am married. We have a 4yr old dog called Myles, he is a Cavapoo. Myles is very loving and friendly and they are well known for being excellent family dogs who love to be around children. Myles has his own space where he can go and children are never left unsupervised around him, it's great for them to learn how to be kind and gentle around animals, everybody loves him. We have also recently got two Netherland dwarf bunnies, they have been well socialised and enjoy the children stroking them occasionally.
We live in a nice quiet area with parks, library, and playgroups all within walking distance. My children are very sociable and love being out and about or just playing at home in the garden. We love to do art and crafts, baking, dancing, or just have fun playing with puzzles and all the other toys we have. We are always doing something fun but also have some quiet time reading books, singing, or making up games using our imagination. I rotate the toys so it’s something different out for the children each day and focus on their interest. I believe the best way for young children to learn, grow and develop is through play. My home is full of fun and laughter so if you are looking for a home from home setting for your child(ren) then please get in touch.

My daughter started with Amy when she was only 8 months so I could return to work & will stay with Amy until she starts school. Amy is absolutely amazing & am so glad my little girl has been looked after by her. My daughter loves going to Amy’s. She tells me everyday she had a really good day. She provides a great variety of food, activities, outings, educational tasks, baking etc. My daughter absolutely loves Amy to the point I have to pretend to be her lol. Amy has never lets me down, keeps me updated regularly & has been a great support in seeing my family through difficult times. My daughter has learnt so much & her development is mostly down to Amy. I love all the things that get sent home (baking, drawings, paintings, cards, crafts) & we will truly miss Amy when it comes to going to school ☹️. Amy is all about the children, so loving, caring & kind x

Our daughter was just 7 months old went I returned to work and Amy has been absolutely fantastic.

My daughter asks me every morning where she is going and if I say anything other than 'To Amy's' I'm in trouble!

Amy makes every day fun, takes the children out and about and mixes occasionally with another child-minder which my daughter always enjoyed. Amy has never let us down.

I would throughout recommend Amy, a truly lovely and very professional lady.
