Our son has been with Jodie for the best part of a year now. Jodi spent a lot of time getting him settled before he started. Has also spent a lot of time and effort helping our son with bouts of separation anxiety.

I cannot rate Jodi highly enough, our son comes home so happy and it's clear how his time spent with Jodi is helping his development.

Jodi is extremely caring, passionate about her job and knowledgeable.

Most importantly to us Jodi provides a home from home environment and will always above and beyond to help. This has been very apparent in the current situation and as a key worker parent it's a massive weight of my mind know our son is in the safest hands.

As a first time mum, the thought of returning back to work and leaving my baby with someone new was very daunting but Jodi really helped to make the experience stress free and I can't thank her enough for that. Apart from the worry of leaving my baby for the first time, I was also worried about how anyone else would cope with his dairy allergy but Jodi has been brilliant - she asked me lots of questions and really made the effort to understand his allergy, she's so good she probably knows more than I do about it now! From day one my little boy was happy to be at Jodi's with her and the other children she looks after, and after just a few months it's clear to see just how much he has developed from being there. Every day he seems to have learned something new, whilst still having lots of fun and I love reading his daily activity journal to see what they've been up to on their latest adventure. Jodi's home setting is ideal, there is plenty of space for the children to roam and explore whether that be in the garden or the playroom and her whole family have been so welcoming to us. I can honestly say we couldn't have found a better childminder and I can't recommend Jodi enough.

My son Louie has been going to Jodi for little over a year now and I feel so lucky to have found such a caring, patient kind person to look after him. Her level of commitment to the kids is outstanding and I always feel 100% comfortable in trusting her look after my son. She provides an extended range of activities including trips to local farms and parks, my son has the freedom to play outside dependant on weather and he is always given nutritious food while he is there. jodi and her family are all very warm welcoming people who treat us like family. i couldnt possibly think of anyone better to look after my son. jodi and her family are a credit to the childcare sector and my family and I think very highly of them all.

Jodi has been my childminder for 4 years now and I consider myself lucky to have found her when I first went back to work after having my eldest daughter. I wanted a caring, patient, responsible and fun person to give the same care to my children that I do. Jodi always takes the children out to playgroups, parks, soft play etc and has a fantastic playroom and garden. She's a mum to two beautiful kids and so she gives the kind of care only a mum knows how. My children absolutely adore Jodi and I have never once been concerned for my children's safety or wellbeing whilst in her care. I absolutely recommend her.
