Before returning to work, I was in a dilemma about which childcare option to choose. After meeting Joy, I instantly knew a Childminder was the right path, and have absolutely no regrets! Joy is very professional, welcoming and friendly. She is very organised and has a passion for her job which sets her apart from other childminders and nurseries.

Charlotte started in 2016 aged 9 months and goes to school next month, so it's with great sadness that her four years with Joy are coming to an end. Joy and her family are all very kind and caring people; it's like leaving Charlotte with extended family each day.

Joy provides a very clean, safe, fun and nurturing setting, where children learn through play and other activities such as arts, craft, reading / writing and baking. Most days they visit a local park, go to the woods or to the river and feed the ducks, all of which are fun ways to learn about nature and get lots of exercise!

Joy is a great communicator and engages well with children of all ages. She had no trouble in gaining Charlotte’s trust and respect from an early age. She actively encourages good behaviour, manners, kindness and compassion to others. If Charlotte steps outside her boundaries, Joy responds firmly, then explains to her using age appropriate language.

Charlotte has always looked forward to going to Joy's, knowing she's in for an exciting day ahead! She has developed a great bond with Joy and her family, and loves JoJo's the dog! She made good friends with other children at the setting, and will miss them all too!

The daily photos and updates on their activities and adventures helped me to feel part of Charlotte’s day, and makes for good conversation on our journey home. I am thoroughly happy with every aspect of the childcare Charlotte has received. The positive, caring and happy environment has significantly helped Charlotte's development, independence and confidence, and prepared her socially for the next chapter. Joy clearly loves her job and shares the same values, so it has been easy to keep continuity in Charlotte’s home life.

I feel very fortunate to have found Joy, and will really miss seeing her each day. I absolutely recommend her, she's one in a million!

Every morning our daughter can not wait to go get to Joy's house. her warm and caring approach to educating and nurturing our daughter has been amazing. Joy manages to make learning fun and will taper her approach to include seasonal events which all the children love.
we are included every day via photos on the baby days app so that we can follow all the fun and always look forward to the stories when they get home. Joy is professional, kind, and caring and is held in the highest regard by all the children in her care as well as the parents! We are ever so sad Amelia will be leaving in a few short weeks to go to school but baby number 2 will be shortly following in a year's time and will be attending Joys sitting... I cannot express how lucky we have been in finding joy and any child that is placed in her care will be the luckiest child in the world!!
Joy you are one in a million and we all love you dearly. 5 stars all round.

Many Thanks
Nicole Wright

Four years ago, my then 8 month old son and I won the childminder lottery when we strolled into Joy's life and not a day has gone by when we don't feel so appreciative to have her! A year later, my other son joined her and they've been the happiest children in the world!

Joy is warm, welcoming, caring and is a master of her trade - she's raised 3 wonderful children of her own and treats every little one the same way she did hers, with open arms and massive heart. She doesn't just take care of children, she nurtures them, teaches them and understands them and it's amazing to watch them grow to be well-rounded and confident, ready to start school and move ahead.

Joy is definitely a firm believer of the great outdoors and learning through play. Not a day has gone by where my boys and the 2 little girls Joy looks after along with them, haven't been out in our beautiful surrounding parks for walks, picnics and play at some point during the day. She also takes them to the library, to play groups to mingle with other children, local day trips on the train (like Windsor to watch the changing of the guard and feed the ducks), animal farms, arts and crafts, and cooks and bakes with them at her house - there's never a dull moment, rest assured!

I can't begin to thank her enough for helping us raise our 2 boys over the last 4 years and can't imagine the void it will leave in my family's life when the boys start school in September. They will miss running into her house and I'm going to miss the chats at her door as well as seeing photos and hearing about the adventures they went on that day.

If you're looking for a carer, teacher and mother all combined into one, Joy is it. Our little family will miss her dearly and I can only say that if you get a chance to snatch Joy and send your child/children to her, you won't regret it for a moment!

Joy is just amazing! Amelia absolutely loves going 3 days a week. Her hand to eye co ordination has developed so quickly and her speech is really great. Joy always makes such an effort to take the little ones out every day to parks tumble tots and she is great at sending photos of what amelia is doing during the day. So yes I vote for joy as she's the best!!!!

Joy has looked after my Son, for over a year and a half, until he recently starting school.
He’s absolutely loved spending time with her and being within her setting. He had previously attended a day nursery where he cried every morning for a year and when he switched, it was clear to see how happy and excited he was to go to Joy every day. Even his tantrums, which I had been experiencing at home, went away very quickly.
His days were always packed with fun- playing with the other children, taking long walks outside in the local parks and meeting with other childminders and their kids for fun group activities. He got to chill at the end of the day in Joy’s lovely home with her family around and his good friend Joey the dog, who he adores.
I felt enormous confidence leaving him with Joy, as she had an incredible manor, being kind, loving, calm, patient but also firm and orderly. He truly thrived and I saw quick development in his independence, good manners and willingness to try new foods. Knowing he was safe and happy meant the world to me.
I loved getting the photos throughout the day of him enjoying himself and I absolutely treasure all the art and crafts that he made there and brought home for us. The holidays were always marked with something fun and special for the kids to enjoy.
I would fully recommend Joy to any parent. I don’t know how she does it! We were very lucky to find her and would choose her over and over again!
