Jo looked after my 2 youngest children when my partner started working away from home and with no family support, Jo was a life saver. The children just love her and she made them and me feel like part of the family. I could go to work and relax knowing they were in safe hands and most of all, they were happy. All mums know if your kids are happy then mummy is happy. I would highly recommend her services to anyone

My children have been looked after by Josephine now for a few months and are more than happy with her and her welcoming family. Josephine has a lovely manner and my children are happy and excited to see her, meaning I can go to work and not worry about them! She is very helpful, understanding and patient, and possesss all the qualities needed to relate to kids but yet be professional with Parents.

We have two little ones aged 13 and 27 months who have both gone to Jo when I've returned to work & she's been a life saver! They've been so happy and love going there so we never had the typical parents worries of whether they've settled. Our 2nd daughter wouldn't stay with anyone else when I was off on maternity and wouldn't take a bottle - we were dreading how difficult it would be but Jo was so calm & had her settled in no time something I don't think would have happened if we'd been using a different childminder or a nursery. Plus the girls are together with Jo which helps as they are still very young and getting used to each other! It's a relief to see them so happy. Jo has also been very flexible to meet our work needs - happy children & happy parents - highly recommend
