We have used Jane since 2014 and her setting has worked really well for our family. Both our children have attended since they were just under 12 months old as our main and only childcare provision. I've really appreciated Jane's routines (especially nap time after lunch) which we followed at home too. We are really pleased with the daily routine with morning playgroups/ activities /meeting up with other childminders and children for playtime, then have the opportunity to have a quieter afternoon and a sleep if required. Jane has a very homely setting with great toys/resources indoors and outdoors too. Jane provides wrap around care to us for before and after the school day, and drops off and picks up our children from our local primary school and preschool. Jane looks after our children during the school holidays and takes them on day trips. Jane and her setting has been perfect for us and our children.

Jane provides outstanding childcare for my 18 month old Emily. She has been going to Jane now for just over 6 months and she thoroughly enjoys her time there. Jane is so warm and friendly. She goes out every day she is with her either to the zoo, play centres, ice cream farm, which I absolutely love. She also meets up with other childminders which allows Emily to interact with more children than the ratios allow.
The meals that she provide are excellent.
I could not be any happier that I have found such an amazing childminder.

My children have all been in Janes capable hands over the last 4 years. My youngest is currently with Jane and absolutely adores her. The days are structured and fun filled. They generally go out somewhere every morning, this was really important to me and there is a good mix of activities, play groups, the zoo, local playgrounds, picnics and more. He has a great routine at Janes which has helped us to improve his sleep through the night. She is extremely knowledgeable and happy to help and offer advice in any way she can. It makes going to work that little bit easier knowing the children are happy, in a home environment, doing the things I try and do with them too.

Our daughter Sophia (17 months old) has been going to Jane for the last 4 months.We are extremely satisfied with the care provided by her.She offers a warm and caring environment for kids.She structures the day with a good mix of activities which provides appropriate stimulation for Sophia's development.At her home there are lots of toys and activities,for all age groups, good healthy home cooked food and a lovely garden to play in too!

Jane is extremely professional and well organised.She is quite flexible and willing to help out even at a short notice.She communicates regularly with us and strives to work together as a team to ensure that Sophia's needs are met in the best possible manner.

Sophia has settled down really well and every morning is super excited to go to Jane's house.(Even at the weekends !!!)She treats Sophia just like her own daughter and we feel extremely lucky to have her as our little pudding's childminder.
