About Me

Hi my name is Jo and I am an Ofsted registered childminder rated OUTSTANDING by Ofsted (June 2017).
I am 48 and live in Lawley with my husband and two children, Rebecca (14) and Oliver (11). We live close to Lawley Primary School and I am able to provide school drop offs and pick ups to/from Lawley Primary School only. I can also provide drop off and pick up from Puddleducks Under Fives Nursery.
I am able to offer a flexible service to accommodate parents' requirements, offering a home from home environment. I have an outdoor garden with lots of play equipment and a dedicated playroom in the conservatory with a wide range of toys and learning materials. I provide a wide range of activities including visits to the local parks, woods and local museums as well as attending local childminder groups for the children to develop independence and socialisation.
I am able to provide free funded hours for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

My Experience

I have been childminding since 2013.
I am a qualified teacher by profession having worked for 17 years with children aged from 4 to 11 years with recent experience of EYFS. I have experience of working with children with special needs and children who have English as a second language.
My move from teaching was prompted through my enjoyment of seeing my own children grow and develop into inquisitive and confident young children. I know how important it is to find the right childminder for your child and that you feel happy too! I aim to provide the safe yet challenging environment for your child to enjoy their development and fulfil their potential. My extended knowledge and use of the EYFS allows me to provide an educational, developmental and homely setting, presented in an interesting, fun and varied manner for children in preparation for the more formal setting of a school. I can also provide before and after school care where I will be able to help children with their homework.

My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Jo's and settled very quickly. She soon became attached to Jo and her calm, caring personality and really enjoys playing in the lovely outside area. Jo has a really clean, organised, child centred environment which my daughter has loved exploring. Whilst with Jo she has been to groups and visited the park frequently. I have been very impressed with the communications between myself & Jo and my daughter's Learning Journey Profile has been completed to an incredibly high standard (you can tell Jo used to be a teacher!) Thank you for everything Jo, we will really miss you!
