Jan is a excellent child minder. Our son, William has been with Jan for 1 year 7 months but sadly will be leaving Jan to start school. In this time, William has totally grown in confidence and is a very sociable, happy boy and I know this is in part down to Jan's care. It really is a home from home environment and I feel totally confident while at work, knowing that William is getting such fantastic care. I see that Jan really caters for every childs need and when I pick up William, the other children seem totally happy and content... Its really lovely to see. Jan is also extremely reliable.

William has absolutely flourished with Jan and we are thrilled he has had this time with Jan leading up to school. Thanks so much Jan x

You are so welcome, we have all enjoyed having william here with us and i know he will be a big miss, not just by me but the other children. I know he will just love school as he is ready for new and exciting challenges. It has been a pleasure working with your family and good luck with your new addition when it arrives in october Jan x

Our son (15 months) has been with Jan for around 4 weeks now and already we can see a notable positive change in his behaviour and development. He had previously been at two different nurseries (one from 5months to 9 months, then the other from 9months until he transferred to Jan) and the difference in his care is amazing! We will definitely not be changing childcare provider again as we are extremely happy with the way our son’s behaviour has settled down and his development since the transition, it really is a credit to Jan in this short period to have done this. We would strongly recommend Jan to any parent looking for childcare.

Thankyou its my pleasure .x

We are more than pleased with Jan, she is fantastic! Our son started nursery and going to Jan, (his new childminder) all in one go! The transition was seemless! our son, started to feel really comfortable within no time! Which was a huge relief for us. It has been a few months now and you would think our son has been there for years!!! Not only is he learning lots of new things at nursery, he is equally learning so much new and wonderful things with Jan and regularly comes home with lovely crafts and new songs and tales of what he has done. Another thing we love is that Jan takes our son out and about, to the shops, on the bus, for walks and he has even visited the Sage for a musical treat! He has so much fun and loves Jan!! So in essence, we have no problems recommending Jan!

thankyou veronica, you have a fab little boy and its a pleasure to have him in my setting and i can see his confidence growing day by day .x

Jan was my first experience of a childminder and the service she gives is 100%, Jan is extremely flexiable in every way, she does everything possible to help you, If im ever stuck no matter what time she's there for us.
The level of care my son gets is to the highest standards, I can not fault Jan in any way, I truly think she is a wonderful person and i'm so lucky to have her as my childminder, Jan has been a wonderful influence on our little boy.
If your looking for a childminder in the seaham area i would strongly recommend her, One thing im hoping for is that she's available when i go back to work after maternity leave.
