I am trustworthy care driven childminder who provides a home from home for the children I care for. I have 5 children ranging from 20 - 1yrs. 2 have flown the nest now to university.
During the week I get the children out and about everyday to the surrounding parks weather permitting . I attend lots of local playgroups and the local libraries for story time. I enjoy creative play with the kids, painting, modelling etc.
We try to cook once a week with the children normally something they can eat for lunch .
During the holidays when there very little group we do days out to the beach, national trust location or even boat trips. Also we have fun at the local outside water parks .
I believe in giving the children the freedom to use their amazing imaginations but also the tools to do great learning through play.
I do have a dog and she is great with the children also enjoying the games as well

Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Jojo. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Jo is energetic and always has great ideas to entertain the kids. They do a lot of craft, baking, gardening, she has a big garden for the kids to play outside.

My oldest started going part-time when she was 18 months old and she looked confident and happy to go every morning from day one. She liked it so much that quickly she was asking to go on days she wasn't scheduled.
Then my youngest started going too when she was 6 months old and she settled in very easily as well.

I was wondering how it would be with a childminder also looking after her own kids but I was pleased to see that there is no special treatment for anyone and her children are great kids who seem happy to have other kids around.

She is very flexible and always tries to make it work for us when we need to change days, need pick up/drop off or if we need to extend the session.

She is also very attentive to the kids' behaviours and change of mood to help deal with challenges and notices if they seem unwell.

We are moving overseas and we will greatly miss her.

I am very delighted to have picked Jo as a childminder for my son. I have had terrible experiences with childminders who looked after my eldest son. Jo cancelled out that fear out of me. She is experienced, professional, organised, kind, patient, caring and the list goes on. My son was almost four months when he started with Jo and he will now soon be 1yr old. He settled so well, no tears just smiles from day one. I am very happy with Jo's services. I would recommend her over and over again. Thank you Jo.

Jojo looked after our daughter for 2 weeks during the summer. Our daughter was 20 months back then, and this was the first time our daughter was looked by someone outside the family, so we were really worried about how things will go. However, it all went great in the end and Jojo kept sending us photos of our daughter throughout the day to keep our mind at ease. When I went to pick her up she would also explain in details what they had been doing and what she had eaten , so this was much appreciated. Thank you, Jojo!

The best Childminder ever! Always concern to get another Childminder on days she was unable to provide childcare. I wouldn't recommend better!
Even my daughter was always excited to go and stay with Jojo.
Very good person really.
I love the time we spent with Jojo 😘
