About Me

Hello! My name is Debbie Lynagh
(NFCE Senior Early Years Practitioner Level 5)



I have been a Registered Childminder and Babysitter with Ofsted since 2002. I offer both Childminding and Babysitting services during the week and at weekends. I also look after children whose parents work shifts. I have three Sons aged Seventeen, Fourteen and Nine and we live in Bracknell, close to Bracknell station and the Town Centre with my Husband. My job as a childminder is to provide the best possible care for your child and to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.

Every day your child spends with me will include a Social play activity, such as Toddler Group or Soft Play Zone and a Focus Task. These can include activities such as Letter Recognition, Music Time, Art and Craft or Learning Phonics. I also like to take the children on an outing once a week, to provide some variety. These visits may be to a Local Farm, Windsor Castle, Runnymead, The Bunny Park or a Visit from a Police Officer to talk about issues such as "Stranger Danger" and "Road Safety."

I am very fortunate as I have separate childminding room, especially for my minded children. Lots of learning, activities and fun to be had.

My Experience

As mentioned, I have been a childminder since 2002 and a parent since 2001, I have also been a working parent paying for childcare for seven years. I have cared for a variety of children, including: a premature baby, dual language babies, baby led weaned babies and helped out many parents with a local drop off service.

Our daughter has been with Debbie just short of a year, from when she was 16months old. I feel like it's one of the hardest things, to leave your child and go back to work, but we couldn't have chosen a better childminder. Our daughter absolutely adores Debbie and constantly talks about her. Debbie always has exciting days planned for the kids, whether it be at home or out and about. Our daughter always talks about her day. It as been amazing to watch our daughter grow and become confident all thanks to Debbie. We will all really miss you!

My daughter was cared for by Debbie full time for 20months. My partner works away most of the year, so I felt like I struck gold when we found Debbie. Not only did she provide the best level of care for my daughter, but she was a great support for me also. Teaching full time can be stressful and each day Debbie literally took the stress out of my busy and hectic schedule. My daughter adores Debbie, as so do we. Saying goodbye to Debbie when we had to relocate was very hard because I very much felt like she became a part of my family. What I loved most of about Debbie is her energy. Every day she would have planned actives and days out, whether it be to local toddler group or a day out at the farm. My daughter has really good social skills and self awareness, particularly with road safety and I have Debbie to thank for that. Any child looked after by Debbie is a happy child.

Debbie is a very loving and professional childminder who provides thoughtful, educational and fun childcare to all children. Her work is not what it’s easy for her but what’s best for children, which is what all parents would ask for.

My daughter had gone to Debbie’s for a year and she absolutely loved her (My daughter wanted to go to her place even on weekends!). She has a good daily routine and yet takes children to various fun & educational places such as farms, toddlers’ groups, soft-play, and small - big parks. At her home she also let children play many creative plays both indoor & outdoor. Thanks to this my daughter grew good social skills to interact with other children, and above all, she could enjoy herself while parents had to be away and work. Very sad to leave as my daughter started nursery more locally but Debbie will always be our important carer and friend.
Excellent childminder and highly recommended!!

My son went to Debbie from June 2014 to April 2016. I found Debbie on childcare.co.uk. I’m working shift pattern and we haven’t got any problem with leaving Him early in the morning or pick him up late in evening. Whenever he was dropped off to Debbie she was ready and she was waiting for us. He was very excited to go to Debbie. They did art, went to playgroups, made cards for special occasions, baked and went to farms. He always woke up and wanted to go to Debbie. He never cried but when he was upset or ill Debbie would give him hugs and make him all happy and excited again. She was the best! He made friends with all the other children Debbie was taking care off, learn songs, English and they learnt all that in a friendly and fun way My son also had a diary were Debbie wrote how much he ate, how much he slept and what they did throughout the day. We are very happy with the care Debbie was giving to our son, and great progress they had made. Now I’m expecting another boy and I’m booked place already for the time I will be back at work.

My work college has recommended Debbie to me and we are so happy. My child loves spending time with Debbie. the house is very clean and well organised. They often go to park or play group. Debbie is very professional and knows the area well so is great source of information for me me as we just moved to Datchet. although I drop my son quiet early 7 am Debbie already waits for us when we arrive. My son is very comfortable and relaxed around Debbie and her own children are very well behaved so my son comes home calm and happy.
Debbie is very flexible and we are able to agree the days of care to fit our work patterns. I would absolutely recommend Debbie to any parent!
