""Neesy was her best friend"!"
review of D DEE - Childminder in Oswaldtwistle
"Neesy was her best friend"!
Denise (AKA Neesy as both my little girl and boy used to call her!) has been wonderful with my children! She has not only helped them develop as children should according to 'the paper work', but has also been their to develop a relationship with my children so they feel secure and loved.
She has always been great with my awkward work timetable, being flexible with dates and times, and she would always tell me well in advance of any holidays that she was planning (which have always been minimal… even though she deserves a rest after all her hard work!)
With regards communication between Denise and myself, she regularly completes a daily diary. Within the diary she explains activities which the children have been doing, records meals they have eaten (or not eaten!), informs us of toileting (e.g. nappies wet/dirty, been on the potty wee/poo!) and adds photos of the days activities and adventures!
Her thoughtful approach to childminding is what helped us to make our initial decision to choose Denise when we were looking originally for my little boy. She seemed to have a lovely, caring attitude to her work. It wasn't simply a job, she wasn't bogged down with the paperwork… yes it was there and it was of a high standard… but the paperwork doesn't drive Denise… the children drive her!
My little girl loves Denise… there was one very lovely moment recently where she turned around to me and spontaneously announced, "Neesy is my best friend"!
We aren't having anymore children so unfortunatly, now the time has come for my little girl to move on, we've had to say goodbye to Neesy. But I would like everyone to know that Denise is an amazing lady, that opens her door to some lucky children that are experiencing a loving, caring, enriching and secure environment for them to develop into little people!
Please call her and you'll see what I mean!
