My name is Donna O`Donohoe and I am married with two children who are both at uni called Christopher and Ryan and we have 2 pet tortoise named Matilda and Frankie. I was a nursery nurse for over 12 years before becoming a childminder in 2002 and I am qualified to NNEB and NVQ level 3 in early years nursery care. i hold a vaild first aid and food hygine certificate and all my family are dbs (crb) cleared, my husband is now also fully trained in first aid too.
I work closely with two other childminders Kate and Karen, we go to groups together, outing together and have play dates together, if i am ill or on holiday and you need cover Kate and Karen may be able to fit them in with them for the day, and as the children know Kate and Karen and their children well this has been a smooth transaction.
I also use a website called babydays, on enrolment you will been given a passcode which will enable you to log in of a evening and view photos and information from your childs day with me. You can find the baby's days website by clicking on the link to the right.
My house is situated in Ashton near Lane ends.
I cater for children aged 0-4yrs old
especially designed for the children so they can reach and choose the toys at their own leisure. On the other side of the room is a personal computer with learning games to play for the youngest to the eldest child, the computer will be used to tie in with our topic and will encourage the children to use the mouse and keyboard.
From the room there are French doors leading to the rear of the property so the children can gain easy excess to the decked garden for playtime. Outside there is a selection of outdoor toys and games for all ages. At the end of the main road there is a public park to give the children that little bit more space to Play, Occasionally we will visit the park when the weather is fine.
As a business I do have to keep very personal and confidential information about your child on my premises such as your home address and phone number these files are stored in a locked cupboard with me as the only key holder to maintain your confidentiality and peace of mind.
