About Me

NEW Spaces available now for immediate start

Rated OUTSTANDING by Ofsted

Hello my name is Janie I am an accredited childcare provider offering school wrap around, full or part-time childcare and also the free 15 & 30 hour Early education places for eligible 2 year olds and 3-4 year olds.

I currently do drop offs and collections for Thornton Primary school but could consider other schools too.

I am a situated in Thornton Village.

I am able to offer a collection and pick up service.

We go on daily outings to places such as parks, playgroups, soft-play, woodland walks and various of other places.

I endeavor to work together with parents and carers to provide all children in my care with a safe, loving, home like environment where everyone feels valued.

I will always aim to provide a quality, caring environment where standards are high, independence can be developed and where there is a wealth of learning through play.

My Experience

my first experience of working with children was as a volunteer for SCOPE, i spent two summers helping on play schemes and after that became a carer on the "give mum a break" scheme in Bradford, this again was as a volunteer working with families who had children with additional needs. I then went on to work in schools as a support worker for children with additional needs.

Then i became a mum a job that i have been doing now for 21 years, during this time i worked for the NHS dental service a job that i left 11 years ago when my youngest daughter was born.

I have been working as a childminder ever since.

My Qualifications

Janie has taken care of all three of my girls for the past 6 years. I knew as soon as we walked in on our first visit and my girls felt at ease that Janie was a great choice to take care of my girls whilst I was at work. Janie has years of experience with childminding but also from raising three brilliant children of her own. Dropping the kids off in the morning felt more like leaving them with Auntie for the day rather than just a childminding service, she loves and takes care of the kids like her own. The girls always had great days and did lots of fun activities both on and off site throughout the year. Would 100% recommend Janie and her services. 👌🏻

Janie looks after my 2 year old little boy, I would highly reccomend her she is excellent with my clingy boy and he adores her. He comes home with lots of excitement after his fun filled day at Janies, I can't thank her enough for all she does for him, thanks Janie xx

Janie is absolutely amazing. When initially searching for a childminder I was always watching for my daughters response to the person and the setting. In every other setting she clung to us but as soon as we stepped foot into Janie's home she was right off playing and almost didn't want to come home!! It is clear that Janie genuinely loves and cares for the children like they are her own, although we've only met her in the last year it feels like the children are cared for by an aunt or close family friend. My girls get so excited to be going back to Janie's after the weekend, they have fun packed days full of activities and are well cared for. I couldn't reccoment her enough!

Thanks so much for your lovely review, your girls are a pleasure to look after

My daughter really enjoys her time spent at Janie's and we have peace of mind that she is in good hands.
Janie takes the children out to lots of fun places and does lots of activities whilst at home too.
I would definitely recommend 'At home with Janie' if you are looking for a childminder :-)
