Deborah is totally amazing. If you are looking for a caring, organised and professional child minder look no further. I 1st got in contact with Deborah when my daughter was 9 months old and I was due to go back to work. I had visited 1 other child minder before. When I went to visit I just knew she was the lady that I would trust with my most precious possession. She is warm and friendly, kept me up to date with everything.. filled in a diary from what food my daughter had had right down to nappy changes (what time and what they consisted off) I honestly can't reccomend this woman enough. My daughter is now nearly 4 and I know that half the stuff she knows is down to deborah. She is constantly out with the kids keeping them busy and teaching them new things every day. From nursery rhymes to learning how to make buns. Even the school runs are usually done by foot so kids are being kept stimulated at all times. She also has top of the range car seats and double prams etc and she is always thinking about the kids safety and comfort. So thank you a million times over deborah for the amazing job that you do.

Deborah has been looking after my son from he was 18 months old, he is now 6. He has been welcomed by Deborah and her family and would see himself as part of their family also. All the children Deborah has looked after are well behaved and polite. It is a joy to see how my son has grown in this environment. Deborah does lots of activities both indoors and outdoors with the children from baking, to trips to Mount Stewart which my son absolutely loves. I have no hesitation in recommending Deborah as a wonderful childmider.

Deborah truly is a Fantastic Childminder! My Daughter has been going to Deborah's from only February this year and automatically she was treated as part of her family! From day 1 Deborah has shown nothing but care and affection towards my daughter. Being at Deborah's is a loving experience and one my Daughter can't wait to get to each day!
Her house is full of indoor and outdoor toys catering to all age groups and both girls and boys, which is great as my daughter loves boys toys!! Deborah does many activities with them such as colouring, drawing, baking and creative play, to name but a few.
Deborah is extremely organised and has the day planned in advance with different activities to keep the children stimulated and outings to look forward to! My daughter absolutely loves the park which is great as Deborah is a frequent visitor too! Most days during term time they are at a toddlers group which is Fab, as it helps the children to interact with each other. My daughter has really come on with her social skills which is all down to Deborah!
I especially like coming home after work and being able to read my daughter's diary which is jam packed full of her days experience right down to what she ate that day, the detail is second to none! After reading it I feel like I was there with her too!
As a parent I am most at ease with knowing that whist I am at work my Daughter is 100% safe and loved by Deborah and you couldn't ask for anything more!

I highly recommend Deborah as a childminder. She has looked after my daughter since she was 2 and she is now 10 years old. Deborah is very flexible, able to adjust to our family's needs as my daughter has progressed through full-time pre-nursery, nursery and part-time after-school care. Deborah has always made sure the children she cares for are stimulated with plenty of indoor activities such as baking, art and imaginative play. When the weather allows it, she always encourages playtime outside with frequent trips to the park or walks around the coastal path. Deborah provides a diary each day for younger children so you can chat to them about their day. All the children she has had with mine are always well-behaved and polite. My daughter is always happy to go to Deborah's house and her husband is also very kind and welcoming. My daughter is treated like one of the family and considers Deborah's own daughter like her big sister. Deborah is very reliable and gives plenty of notice for holidays. She is very flexible about doing extra hours if school is closed. She treats the children with respect and encourages them to have fun in a safe and caring environment. Her house is always clean and warm with plenty of age appropriate toys. Her location is also extremely useful if you are coming back to Bangor from the Holywood/craigantlet/belfast direction or on the train at Bangor West. I have been very lucky to have had Deborah to help make my daughter's childhood a happy one.

Deborah was my child minder for my eldest 2 children when they were at nursery 8 years ago, so I was delighted that she was able to look after my youngest baby when I had to return to work after 6 months maternity leave.

I knew from experience that my son would be treated like one of the family, with outings to toddlers and plenty of walks in the fresh air.
Deborah has lots of age appropriate toys and when my older children were there they frequently came home with drawings, buns and many other creations. They most definitely were not left to sit in front of the TV all day.

All of the children that I have ever seen with Deborah are encouraged to be well behaved, polite and also to have plenty of fun.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Deborah as a child minder.
