About Me

I am a mother of one daughter who is happily married and they have given me two 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 £4.50 per hour

My fees are £4.50 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.

Jacob has now been with Jayne since he was 6 months old and he absolutely loves going, he has came on so much and even though he is still only a baby Jayne is absolutely brilliant and makes sure he is involved in all the activities. I love the pictures and updates we get daily to show what activities they are doing. Would definitely recommend.

My daughter has been with Jayne since she was 11 months. The progress she has made whilst in her care is astounding. The variety of activities she does on a daily basis leave me safe in the knowledge she is having a fun and enjoyable day whilst I’m at work. Jayne has been extremely flexible around my requirements due to shift patterns and extended working hours. She has also given me advice on areas I have struggled. I enjoy receiving pictures daily and can quite clearly see how comfortable my daughter is whilst in Jaynes care.

My son came to Jane after being unhappy at a nursery. He settled quickly and really developed his speech and language quickly. He is now a confident and happy boy who has been challenged and taught well. Jane has a wealth of experience of caring for children with a wide range of needs and was really adaptable and caring towards my son. He really enjoyed their many outings and he made some great friends along the way. Jane has high expectations of the children and makes learning fun and tailored towards the children's interests. I would highly recommend Jane.

My daughter Heidi has been with Jayne since January, she was with another childminder for 3 months before that but moving her to Jaynes is by far the best thing I’ve done. The outstanding learning and play environment for the children is amazing. Since Heidi started her speech and understanding has came on leaps and bounds. The range of activities they do is fantastic and Jayne caters for the needs of every individual child. She is like superwoman. The children are given a good variety of healthy, home cooked meals. Heidi loves going to Jaynes every Wednesday and I also love her going as I feel she is learning and gaining so much from Jaynes care. I would definitely recommend Jayne!

Jayne looks after my little girl one day a week and I trust her so much. Being a first time mam I new it was going to be hard to leave her to go back to work but I no she is in the safest hands and has so much fun! Jaynes imagination to teach and learn my daughter new things through play is brilliant. She has brought her on so much and she really enjoys playing with all her friends at janes house. I no I can always go to Jayne for help and advice through all her experiences with children, she always has the child's best interest at heart and I would highly recommend her.
