About Me

I'm Jo and I'm a qualified nursery nurse (N.N.E.B) and I've worked continuously in childcare since leaving school (many years ago!). I was a registered childminder from 1988 - 2014. From 2014 I've offered a babysitting/many service..At present I offer a childcare service as a nursery nurse, babysitter or nanny. Flexible care part time, permanent or short term. If care is needed at my home, as a babysitter, it can only be for one or two hours per day (Ofsted regulations). Please contact me if you want more information on these services.

From mid January 2020 I will also be working 2 days per week alongside my daughter who will be fully registered as a childminder (Jo Jo's childcare). BR5 area of Orpington (Poverest Rd area). Please contact me if you would like more information about this childminding service.

It's so hard leaving your child, hopefully I can help you to feel relaxed and at ease and answer the many questions you will have.

Joanne looked after my little girl from the age of 7 months until she started reception. My daughter just loves Jo-Jo and shes 9years now! She has many fond memories of their outings to the seaside and parks! Jo even has her round to visit every now and then and my daughter just loves to see her!

Joanne provides exceptional childcare and I cannot praise her enough! She has laid wonderful foundations for my daughter. She provides a home away from home filled with love and kindness!

I definately recommend her! Shes the best!!

I have left my baby daughter with jojo many times since she was a few months old. My daughter loves going there and playing and spending time with the other children and jo jo's family. All the children in her care are treated as individuals and every child's needs are met. They even have trips out now and then.

I recommend jojo to all my friends with children as my daughter is so happy going there and gets far more one on one attention than she would get in a nursery.

Jojo is rated 'Outstanding' by Offsted which shows you how good she is.

Joanne (Jo-jo) looked after our daughter from the age of 11 months until she started reception. The children were cared for in a structured, stimulating environment, surrounded with love. We could not have asked for more. Her time at Jo-jo's was a very positive experience.

Joanne was always professional, helpful and flexible and always went the extra mile. I thoroughly recommend her.

Joanne looked after both my children from a very young age until they started primary school.

She was a wonderful childminder, open with us as parents and always ensuring the children were happy. They were never bored, did a lots of activities, went to the park, etc. I am sure that starting at Joanne's has helped them be the young people they are today.
Joanne even looked after my son overnight when I went to the hospital to have my daughter - and she didn't have to!

I strongly recommend Joanne as a childminder. I don't think you could find a better suited person if you tried!

Joanne looked after both of my children from when they were 6 months old until they started reception. She is an incredibly kind and caring person - very maternal and able to give babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers an excellent standard of care in a wonderful environment.

Joanne is highly professional and extremely capable. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
