About Me

My name is Jane and I would like to welcome you to Cherry Trees Childminding.

I have an Ofsted ‘Good’ rating.

I offer wrap around care for Parklands Primary School (Chichester) and I have pre-school availability on Fridays.

After previously finding childcare for my children, I understand what an emotional roller-coaster it can be, finding the right person to look after your little ones.

I provide lots of fun activities and playing at home to help the development of your child. I encourage child-led learning, I take the child's lead on what they would like to play with and develop the learning from there. The children get lots of fresh air and exercise. We also attend local groups and regular outings.

I follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) to teach and help your child to develop and grow into happy confident children, in a safe and caring environment. I am Ofsted registered and pediatric first aid trained.

I provide healthy snacks and meals for the children at an additional cost.

We live in a lovely 3 bed detached house in Boxgrove, close to Chichester. The children have lots of space inside to play, using our living room and conservatory, we have an enclosed private garden. The children have access to lots of toys, books, arts and crafts!

The children will have use of the following rooms:

Living room – This is the main room which has all the toys, books and other exciting things. Children will have an area for quiet time if they are not sleeping and reading books on the rug.

Kitchen – This is where all the arts and crafts take place (in the winter) as well as baking lots of lovely things.

Conservatory – The is plenty of natural light, toys and games for the children and arts and crafts (during the Spring, Summer and Autumn – on colder days we will use the kitchen)

Garden – The children will have lots of time to play outside in the garden. We will have lots of outdoor games and toys, a play house, sand and water play.

Bedrooms – There are two bedroom for any children who need a nap during the day.

I provide flexible hours and can accommodate shift work. I also offer collection and drop off for your child, depending on location and timings.

Jane and Joanna provide such a fun and personalised service. The atmosphere is wonderful and homely and the children are each made to feel special. Jane makes every effort to make sure my daughter's time there is as happy and personal as possible. She finds out important facts from my daughters home life to help engage wither her and make her time there more fun and suited to her. The outings and groups are so varied and interesting and home cooked food always smells wonderful, my daughter always comes home with a full tummy and a happy face, I couldn't wish a better childcare setting!
