Kids in Preschool

About Us

At DCL Early Years Services, we’re proud to provide nurturing care and stimulating learning for your children. By following our mission, vision and values, we provide children with the tools they need for future happiness and success. Our unique caregiving and educational services incorporate a variety of early years theories, while always keeping the child’s best interest in mind and allowing for hands-on, experiential learning and development. 

Passion & Individuality

Our mission is to share our passion for the Early Years and to help young children find their love for learning, preparing them for school and beyond.  


Our vision is to implement our values to support families and ensure each individual child within our care will be supported to reach their full potential and at their own pace.

Quality & Experience


DCL Early Years Services provides only the highest quality, experienced professionals. All of our registered staff are employed fully by us, vetted using a careful selection process, including face-to-face interviews, continuous observation, training and review. We know how important it is to thoroughly screen our staff to ensure you are getting the very best in qualified responsible, warm and experienced practitioners. All have an enhanced background DBS (formerly CRB) check. Exceptional standards and shared ethos are of the utmost importance to us.


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.

For more information please call us to talk through your options or fill in a booking form for your chosen service and we’ll be in touch shortly.

"Danielle is an outstanding early education teacher and tutor who has got proven results with my 3 children. We have also used her nannying and babysitting services and wouldn't trust anyone else to look after our children. Kind and caring - she puts both children and parents at ease. Highly recommended" - Kathryn, mother of 3
