About Me

I currently have a vacancy for a baby or a pre-schooler.

I am rated Outstanding by OFSTED (March 2020). I can provide references from parents of previously minded children and DBS Checks. I have returned to working from home as an Ofsted Registered Childminder after working in childcare for many years, from managing Local Authority nurseries to inspection and regulation. Family members are all cleared as suitable through DBS police checks and my home is a safe environment including effective risk management of COVID 19 and other infections. We have a cat that is friendly and safe to be around young children.

I organise many activities and children benefit from excellent quality care; accessible toys and equipment; and local amenities, such as the Children's Centre; the park and my lovely garden. We also attend toddler sessions; Forest School; Gymnastics; and enjoy an active lifestyle visiting parks and undertaking various activities.

I offer excellent partnership working and plan to meet children's individual needs within the Early Years Foundation Stage. I am registered for Tax Free Childcare; to take two, three and four year old children under the free entitlement scheme and I accept vouchers as payment if preferred.

Parents are welcome to view my service and introduction visits can be arranged prior to admission.

My Experience

I have experience with all age ranges; including children with special needs. I currently have two part-time children on roll aged nine months and two years of age.

I HIGHLY recommend Jane, she provides excellent care, is completely trustworthy and she has excellent childcare knowledge and experience. My son soon settled with her, which was no easy task! Jane’s extensive knowledge means she tailors activities for the stage each child is at while making sure that all children in her care are included. As a new mum I received wonderful support and guidance from Jane and she always followed my wishes with regards to the care of my son.

My son was not a good sleeper and didn’t have a regular nap but after a few weeks with Jane he was settled in a nap time routine. This has been a godsend and he still naps for 2 hours most days.

Jane cared for my son for 6 months, (only stopped due to lockdown as both of us were at home). She provided such good care that I never worried about my son while he was with her. As an ex Ofsted Inspector Jane is fully informed of all the relevant regulations and is passionate about providing quality care and guidance to children and their families.

I really can’t recommend her highly enough. You can’t find better childcare.
