My Summary

Ofsted Registered

About Me

My name is Jo and I’m and Ofsted registered childminder, I was graded Outstanding by Ofsted in my last inspection in June 2017. I live with my 2 daughters who are 10 and 12 years old, we live on the St George/Hanham border in our 3 bedroom house on a small cul de sac next to a nature reserve, Our area is very quiet but is also within walking distance to lots of toddler groups, soft plays, library, parks and of course nature reserve right on our doorstep. We go out every day, (occasionally have a day in every now and then) have annual membership to Avon Valley Country Park and the Wild place project and go to a weekly childminders forest group. We have a lovely garden with lots of outdoor play including playhouse, sandpit, water play, veg/plants we grow, scooters, mud kitchen, cars etc. I offer a homely environment where children in my care will Learn and develop through play whilst following the Early years foundation stage Curriculum. My home is relaxed, fun, friendly and safe where children will always be made to feel welcome and valued and part of our home. We normally go out in the morning then other activities at home in the afternoon. I can send you pictures of your child during the day (with written permission) so you can share what they have been doing and know that they are happy.

My Experience

In the past I was a volunteer at my children’s school from Reception age to year 6,I have helped with weekly reading, Forest schools, sewing lessons, pta events and school trips.

Me and my twins met with Jo recently, there was an instant connection between us all, my twins instantly took to her, they are so comfortable around her which sets my mind at ease that they're in amazing hands when I go off to work, she's so enthusiastic and truly enjoys what she does which reflects when you meet her. I'm really looking forward to seeing the twins progress with her help : )

Thank you Connie for such a lovely reveiw, looking forward to next week x

I met Jo today after messaging her from this site. Her home is really well equipped with lots of lovely activities for her mindees. She has a lovely outdoor space and is really friendly and approachable. She really welcomed my son who she is going to be looking after and he was so content playing with the great selection of toys. I am looking forward to getting to know her further and building a good working relationship with her.
