Jo is very loving, caring and very professional childminder. My son who is nearly two years old attend at present, and absolutely love every minute of it.

She is very keen on doing various activities with the children and also very proactive in getting the children out to playgroups at the children centre.

Like any parent I was so nervous about leaving my son, but I am so lucky to find her. Jo is truly passionate about her work, any child would be lucky to have her warmth and care environment.

I would highly recommend Jo. She is making such a big impact on my son and always keep me update with photos and progress throughout the day.

I recently went back to work and was recommended Jo by a friend. What a find she has been!!!! Jo has made my return to work so much easier knowing my daughter is being looked after in such a caring environment.
She thinks of everything and has kept a lovely daily diary for me to look at. She keeps me updated on all the "new" things my little one does and her family have welcomed us into their home too.
I couldn't have done it without her and knowing my daughter is so will looked after really makes leaving her so much easier.
I would highly recommend Jo as she is caring, kind and very aware of my little ones needs.
