Hello my name is Jane and I am a Ofsted Registered Childminder living in the Stoke area of Plymouth I am quite an active childminder who enjoys taking the children out e.g parks, beach, museum, aquarium, mums & tots, farms, zoo etc. However, at home I offer lots of activities like painting, sensory play, cooking, drawing, role play and lots more.
At present I look after children under 5 and one over. I can also have a few older children in the holidays.
I had my last Ofsted Inspection 1st June 2017 and had a lovely report and a lot of positive feedback from the Inspector. I received a 'Good' Grade, which I am very pleased with. My report can be read if you go to the link on my profile. I can also provide up to date references.
In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, reading,swimming, roller skating, the theatre and going out for meals.
I have been a childminder for 26 years, originally to give my son other children's company as he was an only child. However, I liked the job so much I am still here! I have attended lots of courses which have been beneficial to my work but still believe that keeping a child happy and secure is far more important.

Jane is a wonderful childminder with lots of experience . My daughter loves going to Jane’s and never cries ,even when she is tired and grumpy in the morning jane will have her smiling within a few minutes of her being there . It is like going to a family members house . I know that my daughter is happy and content whilst she is there and I have no worries whatsoever . I love that I get sent regular update photos of what they are up to throughout the day do I can see she is happy .
Jane has remained flexible throughout the COVID period and made sure that the children are still able to explore the world through different outings and activities within all the rules .
I cannot recommend her enough.
Jane started to have my daughter just before her second birthday. She settled in very quickly and loves going to Jane’s house! She takes great pride in her work and loves the children she minds. I don’t worry for a second that my daughter is in good hands with Jane, most of the time my daughter has a better day than if she was with me. Jane is a wonderful lady and I’d recommend her to anyone.
She especially loves taking the children out and about going to phonics groups, the hoe, mount edge comb, local parks and play groups, open days and the aquarium to name only a few.
My twins have been going to Jane for a year or so now and it feels like I have known her forever. She's so good for the girls, always going out and about even in the rain. So many activities and the girls always come home with arts crafts or drawings. She celebrates all the yearly parties such as Easter etc and I feel the girls don't ever miss out which is easy to feel as a parent. I couldn't think of anyone I would rather leave my girls with. She's so flexible, has helped me out in need and even gives me a cuddle when the kids have played up and I need one haha. Safe to say I see Jane as a very dear friend who looks after my children. She sends me pictures and updates me regularly on their progress. The girls are always happy to go see Jane, they don't even mind me leaving them and have never cried. They talk about her at home and always point out her house when we drive past asking to go see her. She has taught them brilliant manners which have helped a lot at home. She gives plenty of notice about holidays and even tries to find me alternate childcare. All in all she is just fantastic and I feel great leaving my girls there and go to work knowing they are safe happy and well looked after.

Thank you so much Laura for taking the time to write such a glowing review! It has been a pleasure looking after the girls and getting to know you and your lovely family.
I am more than happy with the childcare my two year old daughter receives from jane. She's very active and always has activities planned in and out the house. My daughter loves going to her and she has learnt so much since she has been there. Jane is also very flexible and considerate and makes everything very easy for me.
