About Me

Welcome to Caroline Jacklin Childcare services, where I believe in providing a home from home setting, I aim to be a positive role model and encourage children to be happy, secure and confident little people. I have been a childminder since 2009 and am married to Neil, we have 2 children aged 19 and 17, a black Labrador and 2 rabbits.
At my setting, I understand that early childhood is a critical development phase. I am dedicated to providing learning that embraces intellectual growth and emotional, social and physical development. I am committed to creating a nurturing environment that mirrors the warmth of home.
I have a variety of fun and educational toys to play with as well as going on outings such as play groups, soft play, local playgrounds, nature walks, farm and other varied activities.

My Experience

I qualified as a childminder in 2009 and have looked after many children over the years from the ages of 7 months and above. I have excellent references on this site and also available on request.

My little boy has been going to Caroline for nearly 8 months, he absolutely loves going and his face lights up when he sees her door! If you are looking for a "home from home" setting then you won't be disappointed. Caroline is just brilliant and does so many fun activities with our son.

Caroline has been looking after my toddler for the past 7 months and I couldn’t be happier with her! She is caring and fun with the children and my little one is always happy coming in and leaving. She occasionally looks after my 4 year old on school holidays and she is often asks about when she is going to Caroline’s next as she always has a good time!

She does a lot of different activities with the kids, such as taking them to playgroups, soft-plays, parks etc. She keeps a daily journal of what each child did, including activities, food, sleep and nappies.

She is very reliable, she has a certain amount of days that she takes off and she informed us well ahead. In one occasion she even helped us find alternative childcare for a day that she was off!

She has been very accommodating with changes of plan on our side and she does pick-ups or drop-offs when possible, which has been a massive help.

I highly recommend Caroline, she is a great childcare provider and we couldn’t ask for more.

Caroline has looked after our baby since she was 7.5 months old and we couldn't be happier. She does different activities every day and works really hard to look after our little one. Our baby has learned so many skills from Caroline and it's been wonderful to see how much she is truly cared for. We get a written diary of our baby's day on a daily basis which is lovely for us and very useful. We go to work knowing our baby is in a loving environment which has been so important, especially as I had to return to work so early.

Caroline is an excellent childminder. My son was looked after by Caroline for two years and loved it there. It’s a real home from home.

Caroline does great activities and took my son out regularly to play groups and soft play etc which he loved.

I was very sad to have to move childminders when we moved house.

I would highly recommend Caroline.

Caroline has looked after my two children for the past year. She is definitely the best childminder you could find. In the past we have struggled to find a good one and we struck gold in finding Caroline as she treated my children as though they were her own. My children loved going to her house and her lovely family and pets. Her own children treated mine like their own siblings. She provides fun activities, lovely home cooked meals and is always reliable and friendly with a smile on her face. It was a shame when circumstances changed and I no longer needed a childminder as my children did not want to leave her care! My praise for her could not come higher and I would absolutely recommend Caroline.
