My twins girls started to with Jojo when they were one and half years, for more than a year until we had to move town. They love Jojo and couldn't wait to see her in the mornings. They always came home happy and well looked after. From parents point of view, Jojo has been very flexible and accommodating with us and a great help anytime we needed her. She is reliable, fun, caring and full of love. Jo makes nice freshly food on daily basis and takes the kids out to beautiful places. We couldn't have asked for anyone better and will miss her.
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.
My baby girl been with Jo3for a couple of months and she really enjoyed it. Jojo is a very kin to make every day of the babies and child's brilliant. From going into groups for new activities, to cooking their meals everything is done with passion and care!
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!
