Dee’s Childcare LTD

Dee’s Childcare was founded in 2001 by the owner Decima Isles-Broughton in her home, as a small childminding business that grew with demand from  other parents who heard about the wonderful services Dee’s Childcare was offering.

Over the years, the business expanded and now, Dee’s Childcare operates from a newly refurbished setting offering care in a bright, clean, safe and homely environment for children aged 6 months to 11 years.

With a team of friendly, qualified assistants, Dee’s Childcare goes above and beyond to offer the children stimulating learning experiences, healthy lifestyle and a safe place to learn, grow and play.

We love outdoors and we are part of the Forest Childcare Association. We are great believers that children learn best outside the classroom when they are free to explore, take risks, and build resilience.

We provide weekly visits to our allotment, woodlands, parks, farms and now at our new setting, we are very fortunate to have our very own enchanted gardens.

One of the things that set us apart from other childcare settings is our commitment to provide weekly opportunities to take the children out into the community. Outings range from going shopping, observing modes of transport or socializing at playgroups or  music sessions and more.

Furthermore, we have associated with Lingotots Bexley, to bring weekly French lessons in the day-care for those who are interested.

We work in partnership with parents and seek to support, nurture and encourage that special relationship. We understand that, on occasion, there are end of day pressures that means parents simply don’t have time to discuss their child’s progress. Recognising this, we use Baby’s Days, a secure online portal to enable parents to follow their child’s progress, view their picture gallery or, perhaps, just to watch a video of messy play that day. Daily general updates are also provided on our WhatsApp Parents Forum.  Dee’s Childcare offers a truly all-inclusive service, all year round offering Holiday Club during half Terms and Summer Break.
