'I have known Debbie for 25 years.  Her enjoyment of and commitment to children has been clearly evident throughout all the time I've known her.  Debbie has a natural warmth towards children in her care and she clearly enjoys being with them....

Debbie's aim is to offer home-based childcare which will offer children the opportunity and environment to grow and thrive in all aspects of their social, emotional and educational development - from my own personal experience of using Debbie as a childminder and my longstanding friendship with her subsequently I am confident she can achieve this.' - Alison
