About Me

My name is Jane and I have lived in Saxmundham and the surrounding area since birth. I have been a senior creche worker for Suffolk County Council, I was working with them for over 10 years. I was also a nanny/mothers help with 2 families, where i was assisting the mothers with various tasks and was a key holder for both. More recently, I have had the pleasure of being a private nanny for a lovely household with 3 children who were nearly 5, nearly 3 and 15 months. I had been with the family for 3 and a half years and have seen the children flourish day by day. I have also been a private nanny to 2 other families, one with 3 boys and one with a girl and a boy also 3 seperate sets of twins. My duties have varied according to the families and their requirements. I aim to be flexible to suit the family, this has included night nannying, sleep training and weaning off dummies. One of the children had a skin condition, which needed constant attention, adhering to medical advice aswell as that of parents.

I am available for regular or one off babysitting.

I have 3 children, who are all in their twenties and independent.

I provide care for your child/ren in their own home, where the surroundings are familiar. I also support the family as much as I can, with light household duties, babysitting and sleepovers-being as flexible as I possibly can.

Many thanks for looking @ my profile :)

My Experience

I have been working with children for 20+ years. The childrens ages have ranged from birth - the age of 15, though mainly to the age of 5, as they approach reception age.

I have looked after children privately and within the playgroup setting where I acquired my Level 3 qualification in childcare. I have cared for children of varying abilities. One specific area has been speech and language development and another walking.

Children thrive on being rewarded for positive behaviour, and I promote this method. Encouraging children to develop their own mind and having the option to choose is also paramount.

My goal is to offer a loving and caring environment in which the children can develop at their own pace and flourish.

I work with the parents/carers to provide the best quality of care by adhering to established routines and requests - the welfare of the child is always at the very heart, the central core-the reason for working with children.

The older children may have homework or projects to do for school and I am willing to assist as much as I can.

I have references and little notes that are either from the parents-or the children themselves.

I am willing to stay overnight, begin earlier and finish later-please give as much notice as possible. Any of this can be pre agreed-rates may vary.

I have tried to cover as much as possible here to give you information into my work ethic

We've been using Nanny Jane to look after our two year old on an ad-hoc basis for over six months. The minute she arrived it was clear how experienced she was. I had already got glowing references for her from previous clients and she has not disappointed. She gets stuck in as soon as she arrives, is interested to find out where his learning is at and if we have priorities e.g. we were learning about colours and by the end of one session he advanced dramatically! She is fun and energetic but also makes sure to reinforce skills like handwashing, please and thank you. She's flexible for our erratic schedule, punctual and always leaves the place spotless. Thank you Nanny Jane!

Thank you Penny,
Your little boy is adorable and so enthusiastic to learn!

I was apprehensive about leaving my newborn with a stranger as I had never done so, especially at night. However, Jane quickly put me at ease. She asked lots of questions about my baby before hand, so I could tell she was serious about her job. She was caring towards my baby & I could tell she was very experienced. She wrote reports of my baby’s activities & proactively hung out our washing ! I am impressed & would definitely recommend/hire her again.

Thank you Greta, much appreciated. Your baby was a joy to have had the pleasure to night nanny for xxx

'Nanny Jane' is exceptional, she arrived with a bag of activities and some fantastic tents and our 5 year old wasn't bothered in the least that we were leaving. It is clear she is highly experienced with children of all ages and our 1 year old was also very well cared for. The boys both had a fantastic day with activities both inside and out and a walk nearby as well. It was great to have detailed written feedback about their day and this showed how professional she was.
You can have absolute confidence, completely relax and know that your children are in the best possible care with Jane, I highly recommend her!

Jane replied to our advert for a babysitter for our two young children. Jane turned up on time and had a bag of toys for our children to play with (although, as it was bedtime they didn't!) and forms for us to fill in with the children's details.
Jane met the children and seemed very comfortable and relaxed. We put the children to bed and left Jane with instructions!
When we got back later, Jane was coming downstairs having fed our daughter an ounce of milk as she was stirring lots.
Jane has clearly got a lot of experience and takes childcare seriously.
Although pricey compared to others, I believe you get what you pay for.

We came to Jane at the last minute after another person had cancelled, she responded almost immediately to my message and we organised everything with no fuss. She turned up on time replete with a bag of tricks to keep our daughter entertained and happy, her experience in working with small kids was clear and we felt totally confident leaving our little one with her from the get go. Although she was a little more pricy than others available she was definitely worth the extra cost for the piece of mind, we would definitely recommend her very highly.
