Jenny is brilliant with children. She reads with children and knows and caters for individual children needs. She is an caring and even goes as far dropping my daughter back home. She's an angel and I don't know what I would do with her service.

Jenny has been looking after my daughter now for over 2 years since she was 2 and I fully intend on staying with Jenny even when my daughter attends primary school and this is because I completely trust her with my daughter. Not only for the lively fun variety that shes brings, as well as her care and nurturing of my daughter but also I know that Jenny is educating & stimulating my daughter as well. Jenny has helped build & strengthen my daughter's confidence in herself as well as playing with others. I know that when she attends school she will be more than ready in every aspect. Jenny is friendly, understanding, flexible, lots of fun and passionate about earlys years learning...I dont know what I woudl do without her!

I really cannot find the words to express how amazing Jenny has been with our boy. He has thrived in Jenny's nurturing and homely setting, he would literally run in every morning and often would not want to leave after being there all day :-) Our little one has autism and Jenny gave him the patience, care and understanding that he missed from his nursery. Nothing was too much for Jenny, she helped him with new sounds and words, would often provide sensory toys for him which was lovely, and she could not wait to see him every day. I am so thankful we found her as it is difficult finding someone who can connect with a child who is autistic. I would highly recommend Jenny to anyone who is looking for a home to home environment where your child will learn, play and be surrounded by care and love by Jenny and the girls.

Jenny has been a star since day one. She has a setting with is safe and secure which we jokingly call Fort Jenny so I know my child is always safe. I don't think a week goes by without Jenny telling me of a new training she or her staff members have done on safeguarding or development.

We started our little boy when he was around 8 months old and we both had to go back to work, when we started our son was a quite nervous child but since joining Jennies he has really come out of his shell and is picking up new words and other positive skills much faster thanks to Jennys efforts and the many fun games she plays with the children. I am also very happy when i get the report of what our son has been eating throughout the day, it is always healthy and filling food.

I cannot praise Jenny enough for her dedication and passion for childminding, her enthusiasm is truly infectious and i know that she doesn't see parents and children merely as her clients but as a part of her own family who she cares very much indeed.

I cannot fault her an excellent choice for anyone looking for an excellent childminder.

I can only say I am disappointed in this website for not having an option to give more stars

10/5 stars for Jenny
