About Me

. I am a registered childminder and provide a home from home for the children I care for.I have space for them to play with lots of toys or to relax reading a book I am 5 minutes from st albans city station. and close to town so we can go to the market to buy fruit. I provide healthy home cooked meals for the children.. We go to the park every day as well as playing on the grass all around the flat unless the weather it terrible..I have toys suitable for different ages and we will do lots of painting and art work.. We also do some cooking, sometines it might be bread or mini cupcakes. At the moment the children want to paint lots of pictures. We will go to local music groups as well as childminder groups. I enjoy encouraging children to explore their environment and to allow them to develop at their own pace. My aim is to send home happy but tired children. In the summer the children will plant seeds and can watch them grow. As with all childminders and day care I follow the EYFS

....than Jackie gives to us and our daughter in terms of the fantastic childcare.She fills their time with fun activities from across the range of creative and active, but also gives them plenty of time to play with the great range of toys.She also is very professional and does care greatly about developing the children.Our girl has improved her speech and learn a lot while with Jackie. She really enjoys her time with Jackie and the other children.Jackie has very flexible hours.She has had our girl extra days, weekends, early mornings or late, huge advantage when we don't have family close by to help out.
We feel very lucky that we found Jackie.

Our son has been in Jackie's full-time care for over a year now. He really enjoys going to her home and even shouts 'Jackie' in excitement as we enter her home. She has been wonderful with our son who was born prematurely (11 weeks early) and suffered from reflux. Jackie's influence and skill set have contributed to the amazing development of our son given his tough start to life. His language is very advanced for a 2 year old and a large part of that is due to the nuturing and care Jackie provides. Her experience is invaluable and I often ask for pieces of advice on different matters. We cannot recoommend Jackie enough and if you have the opportunity to have your child in her care you are very very fortunate.

Our little boy has been going to Jackie for a few months now and we couldn't be happier... She amazing with the children and we couldn't feel more confident leaving him in her care. She's really flexible and has had him extra days which makes a huge difference.
I would recommend her to anyone!
