My name is Debs and I am married to Ben. We are both Christians and have three young children (plus numerous pet hens and two guinea pigs). I have been Childminding since January 2012.

I work most days with Amanda who is registered as a Childminding Assistant. Amanda is married with two young children and lives locally. Amanda is a warm and caring person who has a wealth of experience with young children and babies.

My husband, Ben, is also registered as a Childminding Assistant, which allows us to offer flexibility for school drop off or pick up to those children who take part in after school activities, and when possible, Ben joins us for family meal times, playing in the garden or for impromptu singing sessions with his guitar!

We seek to take full advantage of the opportunities to learn and grow in the great outdoors, whatever the weather. Children in our care can enjoy playing and gardening in our secure garden, exploring the local woods and fields with us or enjoying trips to the nearby coast. We also regularly visit the local library, play parks and join a number of toddler groups in nearby villages.

Both Amanda, Ben and I hold current Paediatric First Aid certificates, I have attended the relevant Safeguarding (Child Protection) courses. I am a member of PACEY (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) and hold current Public Liability Insurance. I also attend regular conferences, courses and Early Years networking groups. I also run Apple Trees Club, the out of school care at Curry Rivel Primary School.

When I am not childminding, I am a Governor at Curry Rivel Primary School, I am a leader of one of the Children’s groups (0-5 years) at our church on a Sunday and I lead a messy play and singing parent and toddler group at our church on a Monday.

I am a trained Breastfeeding Mother Supporter and can provide help with a range of breastfeeding queries, including weaning, continuing to breastfeed when working and expressing milk.
