Jenny is an amazing childminder, she has been looking after my first born like he is her own. I was so nervous and worried about leaving my boy to go back to work but Jenny really helped with the process. My son is so happy and settled with Jenny. She does the most amazing activities, events and outings with the children and they have an amazing time. They are out and about to all sorts of places and also have great fun in the home setting.
She is such a kind, caring and thoughtful person. I love getting all the picture updates of what they get up to during the day. Her energy and enthusiasm is boundless and she is very reliable and consistent. She knows my son so well and the care that she gives him is amazing. I have learnt so much from Jenny and I am so so grateful to her for being such an amazing carer for my son. Jenny's commitment and dedication is incredible and I am grateful every day that my son is so well looked after when I'm at work.

My daughter was ten months old when I went back to work and I was extremely anxious. When I met Jenny I knew instantly that she would be our childminder as she is reassuring, calm and patient. I asked a lot of questions before my daughter started full time and Jenny never made me feel like my questions were silly. Everyday my daughter is with her I know that she is being loved and cared for. Jenny is an exceptional childminder, who goes well beyond what I had expected. She puts her heart and soul into what she does: Jenny takes the children on trips; she buys them gifts and she teaches them about the world in fun and exciting ways. I would never want to send my child anywhere else. My daughter’s confidence has developed infinitely and she loves going to Jenny’s house because there are always activities taking place. I cannot thank Jenny enough for everything that she has done. She has been, and continues to be, a huge influence in my daughter’s life and we both love her to pieces!

I have always been a stay at home mum for both of my children but after some intense searching I decided my children needed to experience a setting outside of my care which meant I could earn.
After searching and contacting Jenny, I was so nervous about leaving my two little munchkins as I was all they had known. Could I really leave them with a stranger?? Well if this is your thought... meet Jenny just once and she becomes no longer a stranger. Instantly Jenny made a connection with my two children which doesn’t happen easily for my daughter, she was letting them do the introductions on their terms and within 20 mins my little boy was sat right next to her getting excited about showing her his picture.
Immediately I knew this woman offered more than just childcare- it really was a home from home environment. Now both children get excited to spend their days with Jenny due to each day being different and she challenges them to encourage development each day. Learning is fun with Jenny.
Now Jenny’s name is spoken more in our home than my own 😂- Jenny has taught us this, Jenny showed us how to grow this....
I honestly as a mum never thought I would be 100% settled with my children in the care of another but knew it was in their best interest. I always thought there would be a side to me that would always feel guilty or uncomfortable but Jenny has taken all of my fears away, she keeps me up to date with their learning and development and my favourite is the random videos or photos I get at work which instantly make me smile! It really is possible to feel 100% at ease with your childcare provider!
I honestly can’t thank Jenny enough- her approach to each child as an individual is incredible and as she’s also a mother, her mothering nature shines through on a daily basis regardless of the time of day. Thank you for being my saving grace and for being the one to continue to make my children’s happiness a priority ☺️

Thank you so much for your lovely review Tasha, it means a lot when I know your happy with my services, I hope the children are doing well at school now. Thank you again :)

Jenny has been amazing with our daughter who started a few weeks after her first birthday. I was initially quite nervous but Jenny always keeps us well informed and send lots of pictures and videos. I would highly recommend Jenny, Zoe's always coming home with pictures or crafts and has been taken to lots of lovely places too. Zoe is so happy with Jenny and we feel so lucky to have found someone who cares about her as much as we do!

Thank you for your kind words Amy. 😀 means so much

We could not ask for a better, most loveliest and caring childminder to our daughter Millie! I was so worried after our last being so great! But Jenny is just as wonderful! Millie absolutely loves her.. she does so much with her! I can’t recommend her enough, so professional and easy going. We feel very lucky to have found her, and Millie too!
