About this home

I live on a quiet road, with good parking both on the drive way or on the road. I am within walking distance of several parks, the river, library, toddler groups, music groups and a weekly food market. I love taking the children to the food market so they can choose vegetables or fruit for activities. I have a wide variety of resources for exploring and playing, all of which are accessable to the children. I have a lovely enclosed garden that the children can run about and have fun in with a wide range of toys.

About our tiney childminder

I live in Marlow with my husband, I have 3 grown up daughters and 4 wonderful grandchildren. I have over 30 years professional experince in childcare, looking after children from 3 months upward, working as a nanny, in a nursery and assistant childminder for my daughter. I have my NVQ level 3 in childcare and a full Peadeatric First Aid certificate. I have personal and professional experience with children and adults with Downs Sydrome and I have also cared for a child with autism.

Unique highlights

Experience with children and adults with Downs Syndrome.

I have a brother with Downs Syndrome and when I worked at a pre school I was key person for a Downs Syndrome child, because of this I can communicte a little using makaton.

Vegetable patch

I have a small vegetable patch in my garden, where the children help to plant seeds, and are encouraged to help nurture them by watering them when needed, we talk about what they need to help them grow and when they are ready the children can pick them and try them.

Looking after wildlife

I have a bird feeder in the garden, with some help the children fill the containers when they are empty, they then enjoy watching the different birds come and feast on the food. This encourages the children to look after animals.

In this neighbourhood

I live in a lovely town, which has a library, a few parks and a river all of which are within walking distance. There are a few toddler groups and music groups in town aswell so the children get a lot of outdoor time and there's a variety of different things to do. Within about 20 - 30 minutes driving time there is Odds Farm which the children love, and National trust places Clivedon and Hughenden which being a member I can take the children to. Here they have lots of places to run around and explore.

What others are saying about this home...

Karen Fox

Karen and her husband were happy with their decision to place their daughter with me because it was a home from home environment and they didn't want her to be lost in a nursery given her very young age at the start of her placement. They were happy with the support I offered as they have very little family close by. They were happy with the mix of ages of the children and recognised the older children had helped their daughter's development progress. They appreciated the daily feedback as it has helped them plan life at home. As this is their first child they have appreciated help I have given them throughout her time with me.

Shelley Milsom

We have been sending our son to Debbie since he was 10 months old, he is now 2.5 years. After meeting several childminders before meeting Debbie it was easy to choose her and her home to look after our son. She was relaxed, friendly and interacted with our son from the start as well as offering a well structured learning process to suit him. Our son has come on leaps and bounds whilst in Debbie's care as well as being a fountain of knowledge and support for myself when I have struggled with his milestones and even the times when he was late to meet them, I'm a first time mum and do worry. Our son is always excited to go there in the mornings and sometimes is difficult when it comes to leaving as he enjoys it there so much. We'll be sad when he reaches school age and no longer goes. We are so proud of the 2 year old that Debbie has helped to raise and shape and look forward to sending our next child there once ready to return to work.
