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.
Jackie has been amazing with my little girl. When I 1st started taking her about 3 years ago my daughter would always cry when I was leaving her but once I left she was absolutely fine. Jackie would always put me at ease and send me photos of what they been up to. My daughter loves going to Jackie’s house and always asks when she be going next. Jackie has learnt my daughter many things such as her numbers, shapes, colours to writing her name. I’m so pleased to have find Jackie and have booked my younger daughter to be in her care when I return back to work in December. Thank you for everything you have done for us so far and look forward to you having Chloe xx
Jackie is first class. My daughter has been with her for 4 years and I could not praise this lady highly enough. What she doesn’t know about the latest childminding requirements isn’t worth knowing, Jackie is up to date and forward thinking. Aside from qualifications and paperwork...Jackie offers 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 the love, care and attention that Jackie has provided. Jackie has become like family. The trips and visits, the lessons, the socialisation with others that she plans for, the celebrating of cultures, religions, customs and languages, the songs, books, phonics, numeracy....... just wow! I have family members in other parts of the U.K. who cannot believe what Jackie does as they couldn’t find anyone who would be a patch on her. As a teacher myself I can honestly say that Jackie is worlds apart in how she plans and ensures that children develop. If you are lucky enough to secure a place for your child with Jackie, be prepared to be amazed and consider yourself one of the very lucky ones. Your child will glow with happiness and blossom beyond what you could imagine.
Jacqueline has had our little boy for two years, and she is absolutely brilliant. He has come on so much and we put a lot of it on her. The setting is lovely, she is a wonderful person and provides so much for all the kids she looks after. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder, and we are gutted to be leaving her as our boy moves on to infant school!!
