About Me

Hello, my name is Jackie Witham

I have been a fully registered childminder since 2014 living in Caterham on the hill. I have just taken a refresher course updating my first aid with "Daisy first aid" in October 2016, Plus I have also been on a course updating "Safeguarding"

In July 2016 I had an Ofsted inspection which I was given a GOOD by the Ofsted inspector.

I am married with 5 children the oldest being 27 and the youngest is 15. only 3 of my children live with me now!! We live in a 5 bedroom house in Caterham with a safe and secure garden. We have a seperate playroom and a large open plan kitchen/diner and a bathroom downstairs

All children in my care will be looked after with the same care and respect as my own children. I will offer a home cooked meal everyday and can accommodate any food allergies etc.

The activities I will be offering are play doh, baking, water play, painting etc and with parental consent I will be taking children to local parks for picnic etc. For slightly older children I will take them to the seaside and to London to various attractions.


I am also available for "one off'' extra help if needed in school holiday time or inset days when it's just not possible to take time off from work.

My Experience

As a mother of 5 children my experience is vast!! I have always taken care of my own children so I am confident I will be able to offer this experience to other families.


I looked after a child and her baby brother 20 years ago when my eldest son went to school for 5 years but sadly they left to go and live in America.

Our daughter started with Jackie in September 2018. She settled really well and is always very happy when we collect her in the evening. She is well loved and looked after and really enjoys her time. Our daughter has a nut allergy which Jackie is amazing with, she always double checks everything that is handed out at toddlers. We feel very fortunate to have Jackie as our childminder, we would recommend her to everyone. :)

Jackie has been looking after my 4 year old 3 days a week since September 2014 and I can't fault her at all. She's brilliant. Takes her out for day trips to the seaside and farms, soft play areas. The park after school. She's made pumpkins and planted flowers and made lots of yummy cakes :)
The best part is Jackies family. Her children and husband all treat Isabelle as part of the family. They are so kind.towards her and make her laugh all the time. It was very important for me.to find someone that wasn't just a childminder but also a friend. And Jackie is certainly that!
Whenever I have needed extra hours. Or extra school pick ups Jackie always manages to help me.out. She even looked after my 2 year old over the Christmas holidays as his nursery was closed. And he loved it there too.
I can't thank her enough for the kindess and warmth she has shown to not only my children but my whole family and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
