About Me

My name is Jane and I’m also known as LadyJane Childcare….. I love working with children and watching them develop throughout their early years.

Having had 5 children of my own I came into childminding when I found myself as a single parent 20 years ago. I’ve also worked in day nurseries big and small but much prefer being at home providing childcare for your child and being available to support my grown up family and 3 grandchildren.
My home is welcoming and safe for children of all ages. I have a large secure garden with lots of opportunities for the children to play …..Swings slides playhouse sand pit water play to name a few.
I also have a large garden room which we use as our playroom.
We bake we do messy play painting playdoh and play with rice/pasta boxes.

I aim to provide your child a nurturing fun place for them to be left in when you are at work and bring you the experience I have gained from working in childcare and having 5 children of my own.

I love being outside and walking in local woods and parks.

Thank you for reading my profile.

From the first contact on the Childcare app Ms Jane made us feel supported. She took us on our first visit tour and my daughter already wanted to stay for the rest of the evening.
she is extremely professional and yet makes your child feel like they are a member of her family. and makes ALL the kids in her care feel like they are part of a special group. She offers excellent daily play, helps them enjoy nature with frequent walks and outings, as well as learning manners and enjoying vegetables!
She is always so welcoming and is always keen to be flexible if you need it. What endeared her to us even more was how much input she had on helping us with care decisions for older kids and how to navigate making effective school pickups, and selecting holiday / after- school clubs. My kids simply adore her!
We are now and hope to be, as long as she is open, among her frequent flyer families.

Thank you so much for your kind words.
I loved having your daughter here she fitted in with our little family perfectly.
She is a lovely girl,polite and helpful . She encouraged the younger children to join in with her camp fire activity and they loved it and her.
We will all miss her here and wish you all the very best of luck for the future.
See you soon.

Jane provides a fun and caring environment. She has a fair and no nonsense approach which both our boys took too straight away. We were delighted to find our youngest (then 1yr) who had struggled to settle at our previous setting, was settled and was eating and napping well within the first week. Jane offers a good balance of activities, indoors and out (messy play, wood walks, painting, toddler groups..)
We have updates each day on how the boys have been, as well as photos of fun activities via WhatsApp on some days.
We are delighted with the care that Jane provides and would certainly recommend her to other parents
