About Me

1 space available

I have been a Ofsted registered childminder for over 10 years now. I am ideally located on the main road for any families who pass on their commute to work. I live with my husband, our 2 children and our 5 year old spaniel. We have a large secure property with a dedicated playroom and a great outdoor space for your children to explore & investigate daily outdoor learning/play opportunities.

During our week we visit local parks, Legoland & Sealife Discovery Centre, attend storytime at our local library, attend playgroups where the children learn to socialise in a larger group, attend forest school activities in local heritage & national trust sites and of course not forgetting our arts and craft masterpieces and baking days. The children love to take home their creations and share them with their families if their is any left !!!!!

i continually try to provide new & exciting activities under the Early Years Foundation Stage for all the children in my care encouraging them to try new things, explore and have fun!!!!

Individual learning journeys are completed for your child, tracking their development but we weekly share experiences through daily diairies, photos, messages and texts as parent partnership is extremely important in my setting.

Breakfast and Lunch is included and healthy snacks All food is home cooked therefore providing a balanced and nutritious diet for your little one.

I am registered with Stockport Council and therefore i am also able to provide free funded 15/30 hours for 3 and 4 year olds.

My latest Ofsted inspection was November 2019 maintaining GOOD grade.

Ofsted said .....

"The childminder meets the needs of all children well and their views are at the heart of all she does. As a result, they are happy, settled and secure in her care. Children are confident and they enjoy socialising with their friends. They behave well and show care and concern for those around them".

"The outdoor environment is excellent. Children experience exciting and imaginative experiences and engage in a range of high-quality activities"

"Excellent partnerships are established with parents who praise her for being 'truly fantastic' and speak highly of the positive impact she has on their children's lives".

"The childminder engages parents exceptionally well in their child's learning"

"The childminder's teaching is good and she is well qualified. She effectively enhances children's activities by encouraging them to count, recognise number and sort objects. Children make good progress in their mathematical development".

Thank you for viewing my profile, if you are looking for loving, quality homebased care and learning for your little one please feel free to contact me. Thanks Jenny xx

Jenny came recommended to us when we found ourself in a position where Grandma could longer help us with after school childcare. Grandmas shoes were big ones to fill but from day one Jenny made Will feel so at home and made him feel like one of the family. She has a lovely warm personality and is loving towards the children but also firm and has high expectations of their behaviour which mirrors what we do at home. Her home is a fabulous environment for fun and learning and in the 4 years she's looked after our son we haven't had a moments worry about anything. Jenny is flexible as much as possible and her communication is great so we always know what they've been doing.
We couldn't have hoped to find anyone better!

My daughter has been with Jenny since she was 7 months old, she's now nearly 4 and a half. Jenny has supported us every step of the way through her early development and has played an intergrual part in producing the well manored, sociable, inquisitive young lady she is today. My daughter loves going to Jenny's house and after nearly 4 years it is like a second home. Jenny provides excellent home cooked food ensuring that the children in her care are introduced to a variety of different foods including lots of fruit and vegetables. Days are never dull from trips out to playgroup or the park to home based arts and crafts, baking and imaginative play. The facilities both inside and out in the garden are excellent. I cannot recommend Jenny highly enough she truly cares for every child in her care and would go the extra mile to support their development.

Jenny has cared for our daughters for nearly three years and we are absolutely delighted with the service she offers. She provides warm and welcoming home-based childcare and is always prepared to go the extra mile for the children she cares for. Our girls are always happy to go to Jenny's and have a fabulous time playing in garden when the sun shines. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending Jenny as a childminder.

Jenny has been looking after our little girl for 3 and a half years, since she was 11 months old.
After spending a lot of time considering our childcare options, we knew as soon as we met Jenny that she would be the perfect person to care for our daughter. She is such a friendly and positive person, who obviously views child minding as much more than just a job. Jenny provides the children with excellent indoor and outdoor provision that is fun and based on the children's needs and interests. The children have access to a fantastic range of resources, activities and experiences. My daughter has always been happy to go to Jenny's house and has a lovely relationship with Jenny and the other children.
Jenny has excellent communication with the parents and we are always fully aware of our daughters achievements, progress and next steps. Jenny has been extremely supportive in dealing with some medical and allergy problems that we have experienced.
We would happily recommend her to anyone who is looking for first class child care in a caring environment.

Jenny has provided a superb setting for my children over the last three years. My daughter and son have enjoyed every minute with her, from being of preschool age and carrying out so many fantastic activities (and visiting places) to being taken and collected from school. Jenny always greets them with a huge smile, asking them how their day has gone! As a mum you feel confident and happy that your children are getting a caring, nurturing, 'home away from home' experience.
