My son Stewart had the pleasure to be taken care of by Jenny for almost 2 years.
She is always putting the kids’ interest first and my son was very happy to go to her house. She is very flexible and professional. Always goes the extra mile to put a smile onto the children’s face. I was very happy to have her as Stewie’s childminder and do hope to have her as my newborn baby’s childminder, too. Very highly recommended!

Jenny was looking after our son Tomas for 1 year and it was the best decision I made when looking for a childminder for my son. Jenny is so professional and knows how to do her job.
Tomas has a separation anxiety but Jenny managed to cope well with and to get my little one settled within few days. She has a lovely house and set up for kids full of toys and other magic things. When weather is warm kids are allowed to play in her beautiful garden and in the summer time enjoy playing with the water in the little pool made specially for them. It is never boring with Jenny as she takes children to the play groups, local soft play making sure they are occupied and learning new things every day.
Thanks to Jenny we had a stress-less year and every morning Tomas had a smile on his face when going to Jenny's.
I would highly recommend Jenny! She is an absolute star and we will definitely miss her a lot!

When leaving the house to take Finlay (1 year old) to see Jenny, I always see his excitement walking down the road, once the door opens he’s in the house and playing with all the toys and talking with the other children Jenny looks after.

Finlay always expresses what he has done during the day as if it was like being with Mary Poppins. His descriptive ways are very detailed and I can have a full conversation with him, where he understands everything I say and can give me a descriptive answer.

I have watched Finlay play with the other children and he always comes back home talking about them and how much fun they have had during the day. He always asks for the other children when he is at home and also talks about other children he has met during play days.

The amount of communication amazes me every day on how well he can talk to me. I have been to a few NCT parties in the past and in my perception I talk to other children like I talk to Finlay however it seems that Finlay’s talking is at more of an advanced level. None of the other children were talking back to me. When I watched Finlay playing with them, he would ask them questions but he would never get an answer back.

From Jenny’s methods of childcare Finlay has been able to watch other children grow and learn and able to take this in himself and develop from it.
From the first time Finlay met with Jenny at 6 months old he created a bond between them. From my wife, Jenny was the only person who held Finlay during their first meet, other child carer’s just talked business but didn’t see to show an interest to Finlay. When I met Jenny, I wanted to see Finlay’s reaction when he was with her and he smiled throughout the whole visit.

Jenny’s flexibility has been amazing for our family, as we are both working parents traveling to London and Surrey for work, we can never predict what will happen. Jenny has always welcome our request for an early drop off or a late collect due to traffic with open arms.

We are very happy with Finlay’s progress with Jenny as we love to see the monthly photos that she sends to us. Jenny has opened her whole family to Finlay and they all have a bond with him, he likes to talk about them to us at home on what they have been doing too.

Jenny is very welcoming with any feedback too, we started have an issue with Finlay not eating his dinner so we asked Jenny not to give him any food after 5pm, Jenny has stuck to this rules and lets Finlay understand this.

Jenny had become a very big part of Finlay’s life and he see her as a safe person to go to. He has a very special bond with Jenny and always wants to be around with her. I think Jenny has been an excellent role model for Finlay and his personality has developed so much.

Response by Jennybyron on 25/05/2017:

Thank you Simon for the lovely feedback , Finlay is such an easy little man to love and teach . Such a personality , with a great laugh.

We had our daughter in Jenny's care for about two years since she was 1 year and 4 months old until recently and since day 1 we have appreciated Jenny's style in working with children that made us believe it was the best choice we could have made.

Jenny's approach was gentle and ensuring our daughter felt comfortable with her presence, always followed our daughter's pace and taken into consideration her feelings. Jenny has a natural intuition in sensing children and makes sure they are comfortable with her presence and makes them feel secure, like home. She approaches them with ease and follows their lead.

Jenny is extremely focuses on children development, our daughter was especially shy when she first joined but now with Jenny's help she developed in a bubbly young girl which she is not afraid to have conversations with new people and share few words.

Jenny is also focused on ensuring that children are always learning new things and she improves her home with environment with age appropriate toys/activities that help children grow/develop and learn new skills. She is appreciative of cultural differences and embraces other traditions; she helps our daughter learn about traditions that take place during the year with age appropriate activities, ie celebrate Mother's Day, Christmas etc. Her setting/house is also like a toy store, she has so many things to offer and help children develop, especially I love her art and crafts collections; dressing ups and so many more. Outdoor space it's like a story, all full of children toys and summer time is a bliss for children.

Jenny also organises activities for her children outside home and she makes sure they have outdoor activities as well; she has regular play groups / soft play she takes the children to, also play dates with other childminders or parks; moreover when is possible she organises day trips for longer distance to strengthen the bonding with the children and enhance their development, ie Zoo's, out of area parks etc; movies, theater etc.

Collaboration with Jenny has been extremely easy, she is adaptable and flexes her tools to help parents ensure are up to date with children activities/development. Baby days is the tools she uses but also the journal / folder that she ensures is always up to date and shares regularly with us when new observations are added. What I also appreciate is that in order for our daughter to strengthen her learning in one area she shares books/toys with us home so we can continue her learning home as well.

There are many things that I can mention that Jenny helped us with, like teaching our daughter about safety on the road, in the car, toilet training, personal hygiene, eating healthy (she eats lots of fruits now), and many more.

Last but not least, if you work with Jenny you will see she does this as she loves children and it's her passion, she never had more than three kids at a time and that is because she knows she needs to give special attention to each to ensure they all feel loved and grow to the best of their abilities.

I could not be more happy and grateful for all the care Jenny has shown, her help was invaluable and seeing our daughter ask every morning to go to Jenny is what proofs she is a wonderful, caring and loving childminder. Her family is also great and our daughter loves them dearly, asking about them as well/talking about when we are home.
