About Me

* OUTSTANDING RATED BY OFSTED

* BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL DROPS AND COLLECTIONS - RICHMOND PRIMARY

My name is Jo and I'm 40 years old. 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 15 years’ experience in child care having raised my own children.

I have been childminding for 6 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.

Jo has looked after my 9 year old daughter once a week after school, my daughter loved it there, always came out with a big smile on her face! Jo is a lovely lady, kind and caring and has all the facilities for young and older children, her house and garden is beautiful. If ever I needed another childminder Jo would be the 1st I would go to, my daughter already misses going there she is always asking "when am I going Jo's'? Honestly can't recommend this lovely lady high enough!

Jo has looked after our daughter for almost three years and she has been fantastic. From the moment I met Jo I knew she was the childminder for us. She is naturally caring, kind, hardworking and has a brilliant understanding of children. Jo has an extremely clean and safe home and her own children are very polite. Our daughter has grown really fond of Jo's whole family and will miss them lots. I really enjoy receiving photos and videos during the day of my daughter and what she's doing. Jo has an amazing playroom with a wide variety of toys and learning resources, her garden is equally amazing. She does lots of craft activities with the children too. Jo regularly shares our daughters learning journal with me and identifies her next steps. We are really pleased with our daughters progress, academically and socially. Our daughter really enjoys playing with the other children and has built up some lovely friendships. Jo has been amazing to us and we both will miss her when my daughter starts school in September.

Jo was our first childminder we met and straight away we knew that she was the only person we wanted to have our little girl. The house was and is always immaculate and her children are extremely well mannered. Jamie started with Jo when she was 9 months old and will sadly be leaving to go to school in September. She has made a wonderful connection with Jo, her family and also the other children that Jo cares for. The set up at Jo’s is amazing inside and especially outside, sometimes if they have been outside we would get told of by Jamie for picking her up! We are kept up to date through with how Jamie is getting on and what we can do at home. Jamie has loved her time with Jo and is so sad to be leaving. Due to COVID we have pulled Jamie out to keep us all safe and Jo has helped us with at home learning plan for Jamie. I would highly recommend Jo to anybody that is needing childcare. We can’t thank her enough for what she has done for our family xxx

My daughter has been going to Jo since she was 7 months old she is 5 this year! Jo is absolutely amazing and I’m gutted to leave her as my daughter is starting school in September BUT we are keeping Jo as holiday cover. We don’t see Jo as a childminder, we see her and her own family as our family, we have gotten so close over the years and did I mention she hosts the best garden parties for the children and parents!😜 she has a lovely play room and garden area for the children in which she has spent so much of her time and effort making perfect for the kids. My daughter is so advanced for her age and I thank Jo for that. She works so hard in teaching the children. I enjoy going through Millicent’s learning journal once a month with Jo and seeing all the new things she has learnt and done. I absolutely love being sent videos and photos of her throughout the day whilst I’m at work ☺️ it’s going to be heart breaking for myself and my daughter leaving Jo to start school because she is such a big part in our life ✨ I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JO TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR A CHILDMINDER. You will not regret it💗 xx

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.
