Below are the latest reviews for Mrs Jean. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Our daughter has just started nursery and so has sadly come to the end of her regular time with Jean, who she has been with since she was nine months old.
She started off as a fairly clingy, shy baby, in part because we have no family in Glasgow and so she spent all of her time with me. I was nervous to begin with when I returned to work, but Jean made this process as easy as possible for me and our daughter. It took only a little time for her to become close to Jean, and the bond between them has been very close ever since.
Jean goes above and beyond for the children in her care and makes them feel happy and secure in her home. I’ve often met people who know my daughter from her time with Jean, and they’ve been keen to tell me how much time and effort they see her putting into her work.
My daughter has become a confident, chatty little girl who walked straight into nursery on her first day ready for anything. I know this wouldn’t have been possible without everything Jean’s done for her.
Jean has been like a member of the family to us. We’re delighted with how far our daughter has come, but will miss her a great deal. We’ll continue to stay in contact and can’t thank Jean enough for how happy, funny and confident she’s made our daughter over the last two and a half years.

I feel very fortunate to have found Jean when I moved to Glasgow five years ago. She initially cared for my daughter while she settled into a new school, and laterally cared for my son.

My son has been in the care of Jean since he was four months old, it was nerve wracking at first, having to return to work when my baby was so young. Jean was fantastic, I gave her written instructions of when I wanted him fed and changed as well as his nap time routine, which she kindly followed exactly. As my son grew, Jean adapted to his needs, she helped and supported both my sons needs and mine as he moved onto solid foods, went through potty training, developed his speech and cognitive skills.

Jean, as well as her husband and her two grown up children have become part of our extended family.

Today is a bittersweet day, my son is starting his first day of school. We are all so proud and excited for him. However, this means his time with Jean has come to an end. We will be keeping in touch with Jean but she will be sorely missed, my son genuinely loves her, as she does him.

I would recommend Jean to anyone who asked. She respects the needs of her children and parents. She is kind and supportive and puts her all into her work. She is superwoman! I have never met anyone with as much energy as Jean! My son never had an opportunity to be bored, she fills every day with activities she plans both on her own and with childrens' and parents inputs.

Rainy days are usually spent with arts and crafts or baking. She has a fantastic garden with plenty of outdoor toys available for children of all ages to enjoy when the weather permits. My son regularly visited the library, toddler groups, breakfast clubs and occasionally soft play or swimming. Jean is on the ball when it comes to community activities and regularly attends fun days and meets with her child minding friends to enjoy days at the park.

Jean, we will miss you! You have played a huge part in all of our lives. We are both upset and excited that Hunter is beginning a new chapter in his life. But we will definitely still be around.

Jean has been my childminder for 6 and half years. I have 3 children and they all love" going to Jeanie's".
My children are 3, 7 and 10.
Jean treats every child as an individual and always tries to do age appropriate activities for them. Jean also asks me what the children are interested in and what topics they are doing at school so she can extend learning at the local library.
Jean, in her own time, will go to classes on child development, play and regularly updates her first aid qualification.

What makes Jean different? If needed she will look after children out of school IF they have a cold, sore throat or physical injury. (please note: she will not look after children who have infectious deceases which can be passed to others).

During school holidays Jean looks for activities in the community to take the children to. Sometimes there are "special days" when they go by train
to the beach.

Hope you find this helpful!
My children look at her house as another home. They look forward to going there!
