About Me

My name is Debbie and I am an Rutland Early Years Ltd registered childminder and was graded as Outstanding by Ofsted prior to joining the Agency and I am based on Bure Park in Bicester, Oxfordshire. I am due a grading visit from the Agency in the next 12 months but retain my grading from Ofsted with the transition.

I am committed to providing a fun, friendly and safe environment for the children in my care. I understand that each child is an individual in their own right and will treat them with the care & respect I would expect anyone looking after my own children to provide.

My Experience

I have 3 children of my own and numerous nieces and nephews of many different strengths and abilities. Whilst I do not have the professional qualifications for working with children with special needs I do have many years personal experience of children with ADHD, autism and as do my husband and our own children.

Understanding what works best for the child is of the upmost importance to me in all situations. I understand routine is one of the most important aspects of life for an autistic child and I will work closely with you and other professionals to ensure that I am giving the correct care for each of their specific needs.

My Qualifications

I have completed relevant training modules for childminding including safeguarding, food hygiene and first aid.

I have passed my Level 3 Playworker course which has been invaluable in establishing my setting & I aim to continually improve my level of training in all aspects of childcare and play.

I have also completed several short courses to further extend my knowledge to apply to my role as a childminder.

All certificates are freely available to inspect.

My Availability

I currently have spaces available on a Tuesday only and anticipate more vacancies possibly from Sep 2021.

Please note that whilst I state fairly set hours and fees I am a very flexible person and can accommodate most needs & would encourage any queries be addressed and resolved to a mutual satisfaction. Having lived a life of shift work for my husband, I fully understand how difficult it can be arranging childcare around shift patterns and the need for flexibility on some occasions. Please do not hesitate to talk to me about payment arrangements either should you have any problems crop up – there are always hiccups along the way in life and talking to each other openly and honestly will give us both the chance to find a mutually satisfactory alternative solution.

I am unable to provide childcare on Mondays, evenings, overnight or at the weekends.
