About Me

Hi,

A bit about me:
My name is Jade and I am a mother of 2. Since having my first child 7 years ago, I have been looking after her and assisting friends and family with their children also. My second child is 3 years old and has additional needs- so I have experience in this area also. It takes a lot of patience, care and compassion and a huge amount of imagination to keep them both entertained. I wouldn't change them for the world. I thoroughly enjoy looking after children and find seeing and helping them develop; the love and the smiles they give so rewarding! I therefore decided to further pursue this as my career.

As an individual:
I am a very energetic fun individual, responsible, organized, creative, trustworthy and confident. I am very reliable, friendly, articulate and caring. I am dedicated to maintaining a high level of childcare and still be enthusiastic, respectful, patient and loving. I am very open minded and I am happy to listen to parents and implement plans, routines and ideas. I am a well educated individual, with English as my first language. I have completed my OFSTED official child minding course, first aid and safeguarding course too. In addition to this I have also attended further training and workshops relating to children with additional needs, speech and language, behaviour etc. I am also a non-smoker with 1 cat & puppy. I have 2 children of my own and therefore, I am able to put a lot of practical skills into practice automatically. English is my native tongue and my career history besides childcare is in Legal and finance. I am therefore happy to also do educational things with your child(ren) and complete homework tasks. I hold a full UK clean license and have a child friendly car - so I am able to do pick ups and drop off's easily. I am also happy to attend extra curricular activities as and when necessary. I am used to preparing fresh food for my own children each day and have no problem doing this if required. I love being a mother myself and love looking after other children also. I do have my own house with parking making drop offs easy and a good sized and equipped garden. There are also good transport links including an overhead train (approximately a 7 min walk) into central London.

From having my own children in childcare, I find that meeting with a person and seeing how your child interacts with them is the best way for parents to feel comfortable. I would love to meet with you and your child(ren). Please come back to me with any questions you may have.

I currently have availability. I am Ofsted registered for nannying and childminding. I work with an assistant which gives us more flexibility, lower ratios with children and we are able to explore out and about more. I also offer the free hours & workplace voucher schemes.

Have a nice day.

Jade

My Experience

I have looked after children from baby (newborn) to early teens. I love the early years age group and have helped children with weaning, potty training and general learning and development. I have done this for the past 7 years. My eldest daughter has just been graded as being above average for her age and is very confident & keen tennis player. My youngest is hitting milestones that they said she wouldnt; and some that they said she would not achieve before turning 5. We do a lot of work through computers, worksheets, books, toys and also outside of home too, including but not limited to children's centres, Librey’s , playgroups, music and other such activities. I do the same with my children. We visit children's centres, playgroups, parks, farms, activities, general play and learn and play dates.

My Qualifications

Paediatric First Aid
Safeguarding
Childminding course
Behaviour workshops
Speech and Language workshop

I'm a mother of two and, after my older girl had some bad experiences with nannies, we decided to try a childminder for our second child.

Jade is very calm, loving and understanding of parents' anxieties about leaving their little ones, which is very much needed in my case as I was so anxious after what my poor first girl went through. She was happy to provide me with three references and when I called them, all gave glowing reviews of how much their children loved Jade.

My daughter was nearly one years old when she started with Jade and from early on my daughter absolutely loves going to Jade's house. She is impatient to leave in the morning, getting our shoes as well as her own to try and hurry us out the door! For comparison, when I had my first child, it took her ages to settle with her nanny. So when friends used to tell me that their kids loved going to nursery/their childminder and would be trying to run out the door to get there, I thought they were deluding themselves - as all the books I had read on attachment told me that one on one attention up to age three is essential, that nurseries/too many other children is stressful for young babies and children etc. But the exact opposite seems to have been our experience - our younger girl is thriving and is so happy and secure with Jade and having several other children around, whereas our older girl, who had one on one attention with a nanny for nearly two years, has attachment issues (which are thankfully now subsiding after her starting school).

We are now five months in and I am so, so happy that we went with Jade. I wish I had done the same for my older girl.

I am a mother of 3, that has used many childminders and nurseries over the years and Jade is the best childminder we have had!!! She is very caring, loving and attentive. Jade looks after my 2 daughters and they always have a big smile on their face when they go to Jade's.
Jade is very flexible and has always been there when we needed childcare at very short notice, overall extremely reliable and has a great 'can do' attitude.
Jade is always happy to hear your thoughts on how the service can be improved and takes actions as and if required. Jade provides us with a daily diary for our daughter that is on full time care and this way we are constantly informed of her activities, what she eats, time of naps and change of nappies.
Jade also takes the kids out regularly, which is very refreshing to see.
I would be very happy to recommend Jade to anyone looking for a childminder, she is definitely the type of person I want to look after my children.

Our little boy has been going to Jade for the past 6 weeks and he loves it. When we collect him he always has a big smile on his face. Jade is great with the children, she gets them doing all kinds of activities which is really great and has even recently had a playroom created and changed her garden for the children. She is very patient and caring and really flexible which we very much appreciate. We also know that our little boy is being very well cared for as well as having a good time and being helped with his development. We cannot recommend Jade enough.

My Daughter has been going to Jade since she was 10 months when I went back to work. With her still being so young I was keen to find a home from home setting and Jade has definitely provided this. Jade has spent a lot of time and money improving the setting over the year and always introducing new ideas and activities.
I was looking for someone who was willing to do day /half day/ hourly rates to fit in with my mum travelling down to spend time with my daughter too on a weekly basis as well as being understanding to the issues faced on the daily commute in and out of London. I am usually able to give Jade plenty of notice of the weeks we require less or more childcare but she has also been very accommodating with some late requests.
The assistants who have worked for Jade, her husband and children have also been great with my daughter and she equally enjoys spending time with them.
My daughter always has a smile on her face when I pick her up - like she has had the best time ever- and confidently runs into Jades when I drop her off with excitement it's great to see how well she has settled in.
