Hello my name is Jade Field I live in Wollaston with my husband Mat and our two children. Dylan who is 4 in Reception at School and Lillie who is 3 and attends Preschool.
I have been an OFSTED Registered childminder since October 2017. I’m a home from home setting. I offer a safe and happy environment for your children to Grow, learn, have fun and thrive. I love my job! I follow the EYFS to ensure all children are getting the best possible start in my settling.
The children are at the heart of everything I do. We attend several playgroups, the park, soft play centres, the shops, the library and much more each week giving the children the cultural capital they need to prepare and enhance their future success to school years and beyond. The children also enjoy craft mornings, messy play, and lots of free play here at Jade’s Mini Friends.
I work closely with other Childminder’s in my local area and we often go on days out together.
A little about me before becoming a childminder.
I have been surrounded by children for as long as I remember. I'm the 2nd oldest of 5 and I'm used to a busy happy home. I worked as a manager for Caffe Nero for 4 years often hosting children's fun days in my store. Before that I worked as a health care assistant on the Community looking after Vulnerable Adults and the Elderly. When I had my children my whole out look on life changed. I became devoted to doing everything possible to help them learn and grow.

Our daughter started going to Jade from 7months old, it was such a big step to start back at work and leave her with someone new... 2years later we wouldn't look back. Jade has been everything we could have asked for, she's taught our daughter to be confident, independent, and learnt so many life skills. She's well ahead of other children her age and we believe this is due to Jade because she continues to educate her even on the daily school run i.e the moon, flowers and the seasons etc. She's not your every day childminder she makes an effort to go to different playgroups everyday to socialise the children, she continually goes out of her way to take them to farms, softplays, parks, days out, cinema. We love Jade, it was a very emotional day today under the circumstances. We would recommend Jade highly to anyone and we are very upset to lose her, we wish her all the best xx
Jade has been looking after my three children for over a year and I couldn’t recommend her enough. She treats my children as I would and that is all you can ever ask for. I have no concerns about when my children are there and she treats my children like family. You would not be disappointed in jade she has such a loving heart and truly cares for all children she looks after.
Jade is a fantastic childminder. She is warm, loving and has energy I could only dream of! She provides a loving home from home environment for my little boy when she collects him from school and treats him as one of her own. She is reliable & goes above and beyond what is required. I never have to worry about my little boy when he is in her care. Would definitely recommend Jade!
Jade has agreed to look after my almost one year old daughter for a few sessions on a short notice. She is very approachable, welcoming and friendly. Jade made my daughter feel at home which was clear from how the little one was interacting with her and from all the photos Jade took! She provided me with a detailed daily diary which has been absolutely brilliant to help me track my daughter's activities. Highly recommended!
Jade goes above and beyond her agreed childminding duties, she’s ever so reliable and has excellent communication!
Jade has never let me down once, on agreed days off she has even found alternative arrangements for me.
Super helpful and friendly and she is always fair with the services and charges as some childminders will make you pay for their days off which Jade doesn’t do, not to mention she’s fantastic with the children and one of my girls can be a quite a handful having learning difficulties but Jade handles her amazingly.
Very happy with the service and cannot recommend Jades Mini Friends enough.
