Duncan Jolyon Burden

Childcare type: Childminder

My name is Duncan, I moved to Tring three years ago after caring for the children of such personalities as Joe Pasquale. Not wishing to travel so extensively I have moved to Tring to bring the same level of dedication and enthusiasm to the role of Childminder in the local area. Besides my experience, I am trained and insured through the National Childminders Association (UK), of which I am a registered member. As such I clearly follow the supportive procedures of both Ofsted and the local Authorities, which include the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as stated in section 39 of the Childcare Act 2006. For additional assurance, I am also Ofsted Registered, CRB Checked, trained and experienced in First Aid, Health and Safety and Fire (the latter two through the Hampshire Fire Brigade).
I can offer a safe, entertaining and educational environment, for your child. Being a male in this area of childcare, I happily offer an alternative to parents/guardians who may have concerns with their child spending a great deal of time with another female personality, or parent/guardian who may wish to offer their child a regular male influence into their child's life if circumstances may wish to encourage that. Although, I would like to stress, everyone is welcome.
My normal working hours are from 6.30am till 7.30pm - Monday to Friday, although alternative arrangements can be made. Hourly rate is £3.95. Snacks are included (these include fresh or dried fruits, fruit smoothies and fresh baking). Meals are available at a charge. I do not charge if I am, on the extremely rare occasions, ill (haven't had 'Man-flu' in over a decade), neither do I charge if I take a holiday. All my holidays are booked in advance to ensure that it is possible for suitable cover for your child's care can be found (I am more than happy to assist in this). I will do my best to try and to accommodate my holidays with those of yourselves, but please respect that this is not always possible. Unfortunately, I will have to forward a charge of 30% of the normal contractual rate for any hours that your child was due to be in my care, but was unable to be due to either illness or holidays booked by yourselves. I hope this is understandable. I am welcome and willing to have child before and after school, but please contact for details to ensure I am able to deliver and collect your children from your desired locations. I am able to ‘Drop-Off’ and ‘Collect’ children with morning and after school care.
