the next


This wonderful blog is by Karen Dennis, a registered child minder for over fourteen years! Her dedication has blossomed a beautiful parenting blog with useful facts, tips and blogs. We think you all will enjoy this blog and learn some insight. We are really enjoying the child led play posts!

From Karen:

I was inspired to write my blog, after, my niece (a first time mum) asked me for tips for settling her daughter at bedtime. This made me think about the knowledge I have, after child minding for 14 years, that I could use to help others’. I am passionate about all things, baby and child related and only gave up child minding, due to ill health.I would like my blog to give me a sense of purpose now I am no longer able to work ( but hope to make a good recovery and be able to go back to working with children in the future)

My blog link is I have a facebook page titled the next best thing to mummy.
