My daughter was with Jackie from 18 months until she started reception this year and we really could not have found a better childminder! My daughter still asks to visit Jackie and her family all of the time and she made so many friends at her setting. Jackie sent lots of photos and updates throughout the week which was great, I loved being able to see what my daughter did through the day and she always came home with lots of different things she'd made. She would do painting, crafts, play doh, gardening, water play and so much more! She would also go to different clubs, parks and libraries which helped my daughter build her confidence around other children, and I also think it really helped her to settle into nursery and then school so well. I would highly recommend Jackie to anyone seeking a very caring, friendly, flexible childminder.
When my son started with Jackie 2 days a week last September he was shy and not used to being left with strangers much. Within just a couple of visits he couldn’t wait to go to Jackie’s and play with the other children. She was so welcoming of us and knew exactly what he needed to feel at ease. He went to playgroups both days and often to the park and library too. He would bring home anything he has made and told me what he has been learning that day. Jackie will send photos everyday and updates to parents to let them know what they got up to each time. You couldn’t wish for anything more when someone is looking after your child. Thank you so much Jackie for helping develop our little boy and making it such a fun experience for him!
My family’s experience with Jacqui is highly commendable although it was only a short one. Jacqui is a very honest and pleasant person. My little one enjoyed every moment he had spent with her. He was very well looked after , and I am sure he misses her now. I am very confident to recommend Jacqui to anyone who is looking for a lovely, experienced child minder.
Jackie is the best childminder you'll ever have. I deeply believe we were one of the lucky families. My daughter starts being with Jackie since she was 10 months old until she starts nursery this September(3+).
As a first-time mum, she gave me all the reassurance I needed at that time.
She always keep me up to date with my daughter's day. Jackie is also really knowledgeable about children's development and all the latest childminding requirements, she had all qualifications and paperwork required by Ofsted and much more than that.
Jackie will offer you a home from home service, she cares for the children like they are her own and I can honestly say that my child wouldn’t be as school ready or have made the progress she has without all the love, care, and attention that Jackie has provided her.
Jackie and her family have become like family to us. It's just a few weeks ago that my daughter is not going with her and we really miss her.
Jackie always goes the extra mile to make sure all the kids that are under her care are happy, learning and having fun. Your child will love to be there and more likely is not going to be happy to leave her house. I wish you are able to find a spot with her... She has a long waiting list, make sure you call her as soon as possible... She is a true gem in the childcare world.
Response by Jacqueli on 22/10/2019:
Thank you Carolina for my brilliant review, keep in touch I’m not to far away I will love to see how your both doing kind regards jacqui x
My son had a lot of fun with Jacqui in the summer holiday. He went to picnic, baked cup cakes and cookies, made a dinosaur money box, learnt alphabet etc. She kindly prepared several dinosaurs items as my son loves dinosaurs. She sent photos of my son every time so I knew what he did. I really recommend Jacqui as a great childminder.
