About Me

Ofsted Outstanding Provider Logo

I am a mother of one daughter who is happily married and they have given me three beautiful grandchildren.

I have lived in Seaton Carew for nearly 30 years now and I have re registered as a child minder after 13 years working within the Early Years Sector for North Yorkshire County Council. The travelling has finally got to me "600 miles" per week!!!

I have just had my Ofsted inspection in December 2018 and received "OUTSTANDING in ALL AREAS"

I am a highly experienced, knowledgeable childcare development professional with excellent communication skills and considerable experience in successfully working with children, young people, families and other professionals over the last 24 years.

Practical knowledge of Safeguarding and Child Protection, experienced in dealing with sensitive issues, whilst complying with issues of confidentiality and data protection.

Good sound understanding and working knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Stage which sets the standard that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept safe and healthy. As every child deserves the best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfil their full potential.

I will consider individual needs, interests and the stage of development and plan enjoyable experiences in a challenging safe way and make any reasonable adjustments to my provision to support each child. By implementing purposeful play mixing adult and child led activities, this builds confidence supports them to explore, think about problems and relate to others. This then will enable me to track the child's progress, achievements, interests and learning styles, sharing with parents and other carer's in readiness for school.

Knowledge and understanding of Ofsted Registration Requirements and inspection process.

I have a friendly open 'can do' attitude and approachable personality, good listener, effective communicator, good attitude and understanding, commitment and positive thinking.

I am flexible and adaptable in my approach with each individual child, offering words of encouragement, empathy in a non judgemental way with a confident manner and always open to suggestions and change, sharing information with parents and continuously keeping my personal development training up to date.

My Experience

I started my childcare career child minding back in 1993 until 2005.

From 2005 I worked for North Yorkshire County Council Children and Young People's Service as a Childminding Support Officer to 2012.

My responsibilities where to work with existing and newly registered child minders.

I provided support, guidance and delivered training to develop good working practices and pre registrations sessions through the area.

The training covered :
Early Years Foundation Stage, Tracking Process of Children's Age and Stage of Development, Planning Long and Short Term, Observations and Assessments, Supporting Children's Learning, Dealing with Challenging Behaviour, Improving Outdoor Provision, Writing of Policies and Procedures, Risk Assessments, SENCO and Safeguarding, Food Hygiene, Equality and Diversity, Business Planning, HMRC Tax Self Assessments and How SEN cod of practice is put in place within your setting to name a but few.

I developed the North Yorkshire Network Childminder Scheme linking existing and newly registered child minder's together which was very successful.

Then developed a team of Network Childminders across the county who delivered 3 and 4 year funded placements, continuously assessing their practice for good high quality learning and care environments, meeting the needs of the children and parents.

I worked out of Children Centres, local community buildings, libraries and directly in the homes of childminder's.

I successfully lead other childminders to ensure they operated with the legal, regulatory ethical and social requirements, understanding policies and procedures, legislation's, data protection (confidentiality, safeguarding, quality of opportunity) by keeping up to date with best practice and legislation through Ofsted and other websites.

Then after re structure from 2012 until 2017 still working for North Yorkshire County Council 'Children and Young People's Service' I became a Family Outreach Worker on the Prevention Team.

This role was using all my skills, experiences and knowledge to effectively support children and young people in the home or within a setting of education from Pre School to Secondary School who have complex needs due to family circumstances and Behaviour, Anger Issues, Anxiety Problems, Self Harm, Hydrocephalus, Severe Hearing Impairment, Special Educational Needs, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Down Syndrome, Speech and Language Delay, Global Development Delay and needed my professional support on a 1-2-1 basis or within a group.

As you can see I do have a very wide practical and varied knowledge based understanding of how to support, identify and work together in a variety of ways incorporating different strategies to support each complex need of the child or young person in a positive manner with good outcomes for them and their families.

I am confident when working with a range of professionals ( Early years Advisory Teacher, Speech and Language Therapists, Educational Physiologist, Clinical Physiologist, Paediatric Consultants, Play Therapists, Portage, Autism Sensory Team, Disability Action Team) and organisations ( Child and Adult Mental Health Service, Children s' Social Care Team, Police, IDAS, Health Care Team)
I feel that I am able to build strong constructive relationships with professionals, families and the children themselves ensuring we share the responsibility to support and help solve the problems or issues together.

My Fees

  • Childminding from £5.00 per hour

My fees are £5.00 per hour

This includes breakfast, lunch, evening meal and snacks with drinks of water readily available at all times through out the day.
All meals will be made on the day adhering to all dietary/cultural requirements.

I will require a four week deposit which needs to be paid in cash and will be returned to you at the end of our contract or kept for lieu of fees outstanding.

Fees must be paid monthly in advance on the 30th of each month at the start of our contract.

I prefer all fees to be made directly into my bank or via childcare vouchers rather than cash.

Fees can be paid weekly by parents who are claiming child tax credits but I will only give out my registration number after receiving a four week cash deposit

Only in exceptional circumstances will I accept a cheque, but this will be required to be paid five working days in advance allowing it to clear though my bank.

My Local Schools

This childminder has not yet informed us whether or not they provide any drop off or pick up services at local schools.

Now onto my second child, I learnt a lot about childcare settings and expectations first time around. Having been very disappointed by a local large child care setting with my first born, I knew I was looking for something different with my second born. I visited many settings before considering a child minder. I heard of Jayne and Samantha via word of mouth.

Best decision I have ever made.

Jayne is professional yet feels apart of our family. My son has been with "grandma" as he likes to call Jayne, from around 9months and now age 3 his progression is outstanding will be with her until age 5, alongside school nursery setting, I don't want to let go either.

The child care setting, skills and sheer amount of work Jayne and Samantha put into meals, care, daily activities, FUN - I say in capitals as this is a big aspect, the kids do so much work but 'out the box' approach means the children have the best days and not aware there actually reaching the set level of curriculum, needed for age specific goals. Parent interaction is key, always updated, fair rules and common ground, comfortable and approachable for any queries.

Jayne's level of experience shines through, now passing onto Samantha they are the perfect team. They create the best memories for my son, prior to Covid19 they used to explore a lot too was nice to see him out and about in different settings, I cant explain how 100% happy I have been with the service from start until now. Professional yet family setting without them I would be lost.

I would only recommend this setting to all of my family and friends. I wanted a home from home experience but busy yet calm setting, my son couldn't be any happier, looks forward to going, I couldn't ask for more than that, as a parent it makes your day so much easier if your child goes to a setting happy over crying, mean's my professional working day is then off to a good start.

Thank you Jayne and Samantha.

I wasn’t looking forward to my maternity leave ending and having to return to work. I never felt like I could fully trust anyone to leave my son with, until a friend recommended Jayne. Myself and my husband were blown away by the effort and love she puts into the children in her setting. We were lucky enough that she agreed to be so accommodating with our shift working patterns.

We are updated each term with the new criteria she will be covering. She always asks if there is anything we would like her to cover, to which we never do as she covers so much and is always doing something new each day.
She lets us know what fresh meals/snacks are given and sends us lots of pictures at the end of the day.

My son has been looked after by Jayne since he was 11 months old. He is now 2yrs 8months and he is coming on so well. Jayne has supported us massively with his speech development. She is very friendly and approachable which makes it easy to ask for advice/support, which she is always happy to give.

We cannot speak highly enough of the care Jayne gives to our little boy. She treats him like one of her own grandchildren and we will be forever grateful that we found her.

110% recommended!

My little girl Aria has been with Jayne since she was 5 month old.
Aria started with Jayne during the pandemic so everything was a little different although Jayne made it the best experience I could have wished for, for both me and Aria. Jayne settled Aria In instantly with no issues as well as constantly reassuring myself.

Since Aria has been within the care of Jayne, Jayne has gone above and beyond to ensure Aria has kept to routine as well as had the most wonderful time getting involved in a wide variety of activity’s on a day to day basis.
Since been there I have seen through updated phots that Arias relationship has develop with both all of the other children and Jayne and I know Aria is always content and smiling within Jaynes care.

Jayne takes the time to speak to me regarding Arias developmental needs keeping me updated on how they are been met and is always working around Aria ensuring that she is hitting the milestones related to her age and updates me on this.

I would highly recommend Jayne and her childminding services as it’s like a huge family and I could not have asked for a better woman to have my child in the care of seeing how content Aria is on every collection and receiving work that she has been involved in.
Overall she is an amazing woman who has all of the children’s holistic needs to the centre of her care.!

My daughter Heidi has been going to Jaynes for 2 and a half years and I can’t praise her enough. She is organised, approachable, friendly and amazing with the children. We are informed termly of topics they are doing and what they will be learning. The food she produces is nutritious and she always has a wide variety. The work I am sent and pictures of the activities I receive on a Wednesday are excellent. Jayne is always at hand to deal with any queries I may have. I would definitely recommend Jayne, you will not be disappointed. Heidi is thriving.
