About Me

Hello my name is Jade. I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Tickhill Doncaster, very close to Estfeld School. I live with my husband (DBS cleared) and our 2 daughters. I carried out my Post Graduate Certificate in Education in Early years and furthered my career as a Primary School Teacher. After having my daughter I didn't want to miss her milestones and wanted to share her early childhood with her and decided to use my expertise of early years by setting up my childminding business from home.
Our home provides a welcoming 'home from home' feel with a beautiful playroom and spacious secure garden to explore. I have equipment and toys for children of all ages and a huge climbing frame. We have free flow play activities ranging from a mud kitchen, a minibeast area, herb garden, arts and crafts, role play area, sand, water and messy play, school children activities from board games, educational lead activities, a climbing frame, phonics packs, mathematics activities, flash cards, maps, handwriting fun and books a beautiful reading den that will cater for the individual needs of your child and they can learn, develop and have lots of fun! Then for the early years children we carry out adult led activities following the EYFS to track their milestones and progression to support them with learning life skills and to prepare them for school etc.
I provide breakfast; all cereals, fruits, brioche, crumpets etc and a healthy cooked evening meal all snacks and milk. Parents provide a packed lunch for early years children .
We attend Austerfield study centre, Harworth, tickhill and bawtry playgroups, Ranskill play group, the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, the Butterfly house, Rossington and Retford children’s centres, go bounce, the dome, lakeside, langold lake,idle valley nature reserve etc.
Our house has had all the safety checks in place from safety gates, fire blankets and equipment, to risk assessments and policies in place to provide the best and safest care for your child. We are very lucky to have a separate playroom to meet all the needs of the children of all ages.

I am very lucky to be able to care for my daughters and other people's children. I cherish every moment I share with the children and try to capture as many moments as possible for their parents. As they grow and develop together, making long life friends, myself working closely with parents and watching them become beautiful individuals, I find this very rewarding.

My Experience

I have always worked with early years children since teaching swimming from the age of 16. I then completed my sixth form studies in childcare and sport and went to study sport development in early years and secondary children. I then continued my career development at master level, completing my PGCE in early years and starting as a Primary Teacher.

I have taught in many primary schools in-turn providing me with an all-round knowledge and experience allowing me to adapt my skills for every child's needs. I understand not only the teaching methods but what children need to learn and grow and be fulfilled. I have beautiful ideas and resources and discover the way each child loves to learn.

The experience of having my little girl is a joy and provides me with a nurturing, caring role that is needed to provide a happy and safe environment for each child in my care.

I have also worked in care as a support worker for severely autistic and vulnerable adults and children providing them quality care and reassurance. I assisted with their daily care and routine, this will help me adapt my environment to meet the individual needs of any child with an ability or disability.
