Amazing Joy!


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!
