About Me

'Littleones' is a lovely, homely, safe and secure environment for your child to come to play, learn and have fun.
I am a Registered Childminder since 2003. Prior to this I worked as a Nurse and then a Midwife for 17 years.

My Ofsted inspection in November, 2014 reported 'This provision is 'Outstanding'

I live with my three lovely children in a spacious house with an enclosed front and rear garden. I provide a large range of exciting toys, to suit all ages, for your child to choose from and play with.

We attend many local activities, such as Bounce and Rhyme at the library, Toddler group at the local community centre and we meet other Childminders & children at the Childminding Support Group.

I keep a detailed diary of your child's day, with photos to share with you. This has been very popular with the children and an excellent way to share your child's experiences with you.

I am very flexible and will try to accommodate your wishes and needs.

My Experience

I have been a childminder for 14 years, during that time I have cared for many children from birth upto 12 years.
References from past and current families are available upon request.

I am an experienced Mum, having gained valuable experience from my own children, two daughters 20 & 18 years and my son 15 years.

I have also worked in a Nursery caring for children with special needs.

Having been a midwife, I am happy and confident to care for new born babies.

I regularly attend additional training to keep up to date and to ensure I provide the highest standards of care and learning for children.

I help children progress towards 'early learning goals' set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage, through play, in a fun and safe environment,for example gardening, cooking, creative activities and visits to the park.

'Little Ones' has been a really fun and enriching early environment for my daughter. Jackie is brilliant her expertise, kindness and warmth meant that my child felt settled and secure very quickly and I have always been impressed by Jackie's complete calmness whilst juggling multiple children's needs. She plans wonderful craft, messy play and outdoor activities, and provides a daily diary so you really know exactly what your child has done each day. She also takes lots of photos which help you see what your child has enjoyed doing; we really appreciate the time and effort she spends on this and now have pictures of story time in the wood and some of my daughter's first posed smiles in front of the tree at Christmas for our own photo collection as she frequently uploads them to a memory stick. I can't recommend 'Little Ones' strongly enough my daughter has loved her time there, I have complete confidence in Jackie and this has made the difficult task of leaving your child in someone elses care bearable as I know she is happy, safe and well looked after .

From the first correspondence Jackie has been so helpful and welcoming. Her setting is bright and filed with activity! You can see what the children have been doing from week to week and there is usually a theme. My little girl has a diary and it details exactly what has been done throughout the day and even includes photographs! Which is lovely to see how happy she is there. This is our first time using a Childminder and i can honestly say the experience has been made so much easier by Jackies kindness and her approach.

I would not hesitate in recommending Jackie as she is a fantastic childcare provider.
