Donna Richardson -Bumblebee Childcare

My name is Donna Richardson I am 39 years old and have been in the childcare business for approximately 23 years but have been around children all my life. I have been married to my partner Colin for 17 years. I have three children aged 8, 15 and my step-daughter who is 23. Colin joined as my assistant in December 2010 and has attained his NVQ3 in childcare along with all statutory requirements such as safeguarding and first aid. We work very hard to ensure our practice is an enjoyable learning and engaging environment and as a result were delighted to judged outstanding by Ofsted in 2010 and more recently in 2016.

As I am a registered childminder I will always provide a clean, friendly, safe environment for all children in my care, as I want all children to feel welcome, comfortable and happy to be in my home with my family and I.

I have studied hard over the years in order to improve my knowledge and enhance my practice and have gained my NVQ2, NVQ3, NVQ4 in Childcare and Education, Early Years Foundation Degree and BA (Hons) in Early Years.

My previous work background began as a nursery nurse and culminated in managing a number of private day nurseries, prior to deciding to set up my own business as a Childminder. My previous background has given me an excellent knowledge of working with children and working in partnership with parents in order for children to have the very best start in life.

Having been a working mother for the past 15 years I feel I know what parents want which in summary is flexibility and a high level of care at an affordable cost. I will continue to strive to achieve high Ofsted standards in order that your child gets the best possible care available.
