"All we could wish for in a childminder"
review of JoanneN - Childminder in Northampton
All we could wish for in a childminder
I cannot recommend Jo and her assistant Lauren enough. They are both truly amazing with the kids. So patient, caring and loving. They both genuinely care about all the kids. Even messaging us when our son has been poorly to see how he is.
Jo's passion for childcare really shines through with everything they do. From getting all the kids of all ages involved in role play to crafts. I'll treasure the things that Noah has come home with always.
They go out regularly for trips to different places, the farm, park and strawberry picking. She also takes them to different play group's.
She sends regular photos of what they have been up to, which always makes the day at work so much sweeter. She also makes picture collages of special trips and for each month of a snap shot of the fun and games.
A massive plus for us was that she provides all meals including dinner which for us was amazing so when we got home after collecting at 5 we can have quality time rather than having to have dinner. She has been so patient with our fussy eater 1 year old and always trying to offer him new things, and has given me some tips to try and get him to eat.
The only reason we have sadly had to leave Jo is due to her moving and her new location doesn't work for us. We are really sad that Noah won't be going to her anymore and wouldn't have changed if she hadn't have moved.
Jo and Lauren are really everything we could have wished for in a childminder and more. Any child that gets to be cared for by them will be truly lucky. We're really going miss seeing them 4 days a week.
