Our Story

Our Story


I established DCL Early Years Services LTD in 2019 after 11 years of shaping the minds of our future in schools and private nurseries.


As an Early Years Specialist and qualified Teacher, through the years, I have received an overwhelming amount of requests from parents for additional childcare services from someone they trust with their children and their futures. Having realised there are limited options for an early years childcare service encompassing private teaching (tutoring), nannying, babysitting and specialist exam preparation in London, DCL Early Years Services LTD was born.


I believe in teaching and developing young minds by making it fun to learn. Therefore, I have built the company values based on fun, learning, love and excellence. Each of the DCL Early Years Services teachers passionately share the same ethos and will endeavor to ensure your child receives the best care and/or learning experience.
