I chose Jodie as my childminder having seen her advertisement on the childcare.co.uk website.  My daughter, at the time she started with Jodie was only 6 months, and as a first time parent I was naturally apprehensive. 

Jodie has a really lovely manner with Daisy, my now 20 month old daughter.  She always seems kind, calm and patient with her and Daisy is happy and well behaved, most times, and knows what's expected of her.  Since Daisy has been going to Jodie's I've been reassured that I have made absolutely the right choice.  She's so happy there and really loves Jodie and the other children in her care.  I've been impressed by the variety of toys that Jodie has and that Daisy doesn't just play with gender stereotype toys.  I've really seen Daisy's progress since she's spent time with Jodie and the other children in her care.  She's starting to learn words, has started to draw, something I would never have thought of doing with her at this age.  While she's pleased to see me at the end of the day she's never desperate to go home and always arrives at Jodie's with a smile. 

I have always felt very comfortable to ask questions and believe me there have been many.  Jodie is really honest and follows with our routine for Daisy (bed time, food, drink) and respects our opinions and input.  Jodie is an extremely committed professional childminder, always giving children her full attention during the day.  At the same time she's able to talk easily to the parents and pass on anything she knows will interest or concern them - a skill sometimes overlooked in childcare! Overall, a really impressive childminder.

Jodie started looking after my baby girl from 4 months old. On our first visit, she explained into details about her policies and this was well understandable. Jodie has kept me up to date with my daughter's development and she has great communication skills. Sometimes when I'm ready to pick my daughter up, she doesn't notice my presence because she's so busy playing around. I can actually tell that she feels comfortable under the care of Jodie as her house and environment is so conducive. She has many developmental and learning toys around the house, she tought my baby first word such as please and thank you and above all, she is a very honest childminder. She does everything according to procedure and I've never been on the edge when I leave my child with her. She's the best I've come across so far having tried some couple of minders and I'll always go back to her should I have any more babies in future if she's got an available space. Her level of childminding is an A* plus as I have seen great improvement and excellent development in my baby's life. I pick her up happy all the time with no concerns.

Jodie has been my sons childminder since last year. The moment he met her and we had our first home visit I could tell he felt comfortable, Jodie thoroughly discussed and explained her policies and procedures and how she works to us. I trust leaving my son there 100%
My son loves being in the environment and gets upset if the odd day we actually pick him up early!
Jodie is very accommodating and keeps up well with communications, especially with my baby brain at the moment!
I'll actually be quite sad when I have baby number two and my son won't be going there until I return, however Jodie has kindly offered for him to pop round sometimes to stay in contact.
I would highly recommended her and her services :-)
