About Me

SEPTEMBER AVAILABILITY..... My name is Janine, I am an Ofsted registered childminder,Graded "GOOD" childminding for 6 years. Really focused on my children becoming confident/happy and enjoying life.In my home I have 2 children, Ebony who has started primary and my son Ollie who is 8 years old.
I am a active and vibrant childminder buzzing with ideas for activities and enjoying the interaction of the children.
I work very hard to ensure the children's interests are catered for, with appropriate activities following their next steps, achieving on going development.
Although i provide a home from home nurturing environment I am pleased to offer my children a play room with space just like a nursery setting, with a wide selection of toys to keep your child stimulated.
The children i care for love our themed play room when we have disco time with lots of party lights and bubbles!
I have a large back garden with a play house, I like to rotate activities with the use of trays to create areas of interest to improve children's concentration.
I have many natural resources such as pebbles, cones and wooden blocks.
I plan to go out most mornings this can include forest walks and activities in the forest, parks, river paddles, farms and softplay on a really cold day.
We are not scared of mess, willsbridge mill is walking distance ... mud painting, making mud pies and digging for insects !
Please feel free to come and take a look around my setting.

My Experience

I have always been a people person, spending many years in home care looking after disabled children.

Our daughter has only been with Janine a few weeks but her approach has been amazing! She is completely accommodating and has kept us up to date with the settling in process I’m so pleased we’ve found such a great childminder and I imagine our daughter staying with Janine for a long time yet to come!

My daughter has been with Janine for 2 years now.
I had initially wanted to have a childminder setting but then move my daughter to a nursery once she had gained some confidence.
2 years later and no plans to move her anywhere.
Come September I will have to apply for primary schools. Although I have one at the end of my road, I will be applying for the school that Janine currently does school runs for, purely so my daughter is looked after by Janine still when I am at work.
My daughters confidence, learning and experiences she has with Janine is beyond anything I could have hoped for.
She comes out with things I haven’t even approached with her yet. It’s amazing how well my daughter is progressing and although she’s only been doing 2 days a week with Janine, she is such a huge part of that!
My daughter gets excited going to see her (probably helps that Janine does way more with her than I seem to get around to) and I can’t feel any more reassured than I am, knowing who my daughter is with.
I feel incredibly lucky to have Janine taking over my role when I am at work.

Wow thank you so much Rivka, I feel so lucky to be working with such a great family. To hear comments like that is what makes childminding so satisfying it makes it all worth it! Sophie is lucky to have such a loving and caring mum like you.... Super mum!

Janine has been looking after my son for just over a year now. He settled in quickly and enjoys spening time at Janine's.

Her house is an excellent environment for kids. Janine is very creative and never short of ideas how to entertain the kids. She makes every day fun and educational.
From a paddling pool in her lovely garden, sandpit, to a disco in her living room there is always something special going on.

She is very flexible around her working hours and nothing is ever too much asked. Her whole family is friendly and welcoming and my son is always looking forward spending time at Janine's house.

I recommend Janine to anyone looking for a reliable, comitted and pasionate childminder.

We've had an excellent experience with JanineCo.
Janine herself is bubbly, friendly, full of enthusiasm and passion for her job.
The kids absolutely love her and her home is welcoming, my son particularly enjoys the garden. My son is happy and confident in her setting.
Janine provides a variety of balanced child friendly meals, my son often finishes the lot!
Janine has been really flexible if I've needed last minute childcare, she always turns up on time and is incredibly committed.
I've recommended her to friends and they have also used her.
My son loves going to Janine's house and he doesn't see it as "childcare" he thinks it's just going to a friends house! I think that's a mark of how welcoming and friendly Janine and her family are, all credit to them!
