About Me

My name is Jo and I'm 39. I live in Hinckley with my husband and our children.

I run a professional childminding business from my home.

I have a large dedicated play room with excellent facilities , laid out to actively encourage the children to learn whilst playing. The playroom consists of a dedicated reading area, play table, lunch area and many great toys, games and resources to help children progress and develop.

We have a large garden and a play area consisting of swings, slides as well as a play café, wooden tipi, water tables, a sandpit & a mud kitchen.

I attend playgroups, go for walks, visit parks, events and always have plenty of fun activities for the children to enjoy.

I offer an excellent service and to the highest standards. I offer a great range of learning opportunities to support the learning of the children’s individual needs and next steps. I am extremely happy with my feedback from parents, they absolutely love the facilities and learning opportunities I offer.

I have 14 years’ experience in child care having raised my own children.

I have been childminding for 5 years and I love every minute of it.

Please take the time to read the wonderful reviews that previous parents have written.

I have a full clean driving licence with my own car.

I am Ofsted registered with an 'OUTSTANDING' grading and have the following:-

- A Quality Start for Child Minding Certificate

- Paediatric First Aid Certificate

- Child Protection, Safeguarding Children, Designated Safeguarding Certificate

Jo is absolutely wonderful. When I first met her and visited her home, I immediately knew Jo would be a great child minder for our daughter. She has cared for our daughter once a week for 10 months between the ages of 2-3. Everything outlined in her profile is exactly true. My daughter loves the many craft and learning activities Jo provides and is always happy to attend her home. She provides fantastic themed activities and learning each school term; to help practice shapes, numbers, letters and manual dexterity whilst having fun. Jo has worked together with us as the parents to help our daughter improve in certain areas. Jo is timely, considerate and flexible. The learning facilities are exceptional both in the learning room and outside in the garden and her house is always clean. Jo is efficient and regularly compiles a thorough learning journal. Both my daughter and I will miss seeing Jo regularly as our daughter moves into preschool but we are very glad to have someone we trust to rely on for extra child care and school holidays where available. My husband and i highly recommend Jo as a child minder.

Jo is a fantastic Childminder who works really hard to accommodate the needs of all children and really helps them to develop along the way. My daughter started with Jo when she was 3 full time Monday to Friday and couldn’t wait to go each morning. Jo does lots of activities with them and helped teach Isabelle how to write her name, count to 20 and identify different number just to name a few. Jo also helps look after my 2 year old and 6 year old boys they all thoroughly enjoy going. The playroom and garden are a child’s dream so much to keep them busy, educated and intrigued. Unfortunately we are moving out of the area which means after next week we can know longer use Jo which is gutting for all my children and myself as we see her as more of a friend than a Childminder. If you are looking for someone who will really take good care of you children then look no further.

Such a shame my child has to start school! My son was with Jo for around 10 months and loves her! Very flexible, kind hearted and so good with the kids. Mine never wanted to come home he had so much fun! And he grew so much as a person in his time with Jo. After several unsuccessful nursery choices over the years im so happy I happened to find Jo! Such a lovely woman.

Our daughter started with Jo when she was nine months and loved every minute. She developed so quickly and was walking and talking within a short time of being with Jo.

Jo was always accommodating and would bend over backwards to help us with our daughter and has now become a part of our family. She was eager to accommodate our changing needs as I settled back at work following maternity leave.

We would recommend this childminder to everybody.

My son has been friends with Jo's children for the past 7 years and she had been my childminder for the past 2 years. Jo is a natural with children in her manner and I can tell that they are always happy in her care. My son can be difficult on occasions and she manages his behaviour well alongside the other children. Her home is welcoming and friendly and the children are always doing something fun. Jo is flexible, approachable and she makes balancing work and childcare much less of a stress for me. We are sorry to be losing her but I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.
