About Me

Hi, my name is Jackie Merricks, I am an OFSTED registered child-minder. I am a mum to two amazing girls (7 and 9) happily married to Ian and we live in our lovely family home in Burbage.
I consider myself to be a positive, welcoming and a caring individual that is also enthusiastic, motivated and dedicated in all I do.
We have a family run martial arts school that my husband owns and we all train together, which we love!
I am very structured and pride myself in the quality of early years education that I provide. I offer a homely environment with lots of toys and activities for the children, in line with the EYFS guidelines.
I offer healthy snacks, drinks and I encourage the children to get involved in making their own food choices. I promote good personal hygiene and good manners. My aim is for each child to be happy and have fun while learning and developing to their full potential, children are encouraged to be independent and confident in preparation for school.
My setting is lots of fun and full of energy whilst keeping the loving family environment that makes it so special.
I use an online system which enables me to communicate with parents more easily, you will be given login details so you can look at your child development and learning journey when ever you want. You will also get notifications of a daily diary which will tell you what we have been up to, along with photos of your little one through out the day.
