My son Charlie has been with Dee with since he was 10months old. He has learnt and developed so much and enjoys going to Dees he is now grown and confident to walk up the drive wave goodbye and go to Dee. I feel happy and confident in leaving my son with her.
They have great days feeding the ducks, playing outside, art and playing with the other children.
Each day I have an update of how Charlie has been what he has eaten if he has slept and general information. I even have updates of pictures which is lovely to see he is happy when I am not there.
I would highly recommend Dee as a childminder she is amazing and Charlie loves going to her.
this lady is absolutely amazing. I messaged Dee as i was stuck, she's straight away had my daughter whilst i went to work at last minute. I'd recommend this lady to every one.
thank you xxxxxxx
D.dee looked after my son zayd for 2 1/2 years from the minute I interviewed her I knew she would be the 1 to look after zayd. She’s very caring and reliable, zayd was very happy each morning when I was dropping him off he would have a big smile on his face and his arms open 2 greet D.dee, which made it so much easier leaving him because I already felt guilty for leaving him. I got daily updates on what he had done and what development stages he was up to also what he had eaten ( I must say the food D.dee cooks is healthy and she cooks a range of foods so zayd used to get loads of different meals) through parents book which also had loads of pictures of what my zayd had been up to, which I enjoyed reading . I would highly recommend D.dee to parents who wish to send their child to a childminder you will not regret your decision and your child will be loved and well cared for .
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!
I started taking my son to DDees 3 week ago, he wasn't use to being left with anybody and was a bit unsettled. She has constantly updated me wit pictures of him settled and calm, reassuring me! He is always well fed and clean when I pick him up and enjoys his days out.
My daughter currently attends dee dees . She is extremely accommodating with me doing shift work on different days. My lil girl adores here she is always making sure their busy with play n baking n crafts n a good mixture of going out too . She has gained lots of development skills too we work together regarding concerns or to help her development further with eating and learning . She fully enjoys her time at the setting n cries to stay . Would definitely recommend Denise.

Thank you Rosh I loved looking after Shannon and meeting you both. Keep in contact with me. D.X
My son was 8 months old when he first started going to D'Dee's, I was extremely nervous about leaving him but Denise completely put me at ease messaging me through out the day to let me know how he was getting on. Denise stood out from the rest of the childminders, she is so down to earth and a lovely lady, my instincts was too choose her and I haven't regretted it since. My son comes home with a diary of his day to day activities which is always lovely to read, his diary is always full of photographs so we can see him enjoying himself, I would definitely recommend Denise as a child minder
D Dee is a fantastic childminder, honest caring easy to talk to. She is clearly passionate about what she does and this shows in how happy our 8 month old is. He is visibly excited smiley and kicks his legs when he sees her. His book is always full of info on his day, what he eats and how happy he is. We feel well informed of his day, and fully confident he is in safe hands. When viewing childcare providers Denise stood out for us as she does so many outdoor activities, and we knew we wanted him to be active. He comes home exhausted and extreemly happy.
Cannot recommend her enough!
