My daughter Bobby started with Jenny when she was 10 months old, I didn't even worry about her for a second. Jenny is a very smiling and wonderful person, the children loved her. Bobby couldn't wait to go to Jenny's in the morning, it was a wonderful experience for my daughter and for the whole family. When Bobby was one year old, Jenny and prepared a wonderful party, it was amazing. Lots of crafting, lots of adventure and lots of fun. Even during the lockdown, she prepared songs and stories for us. Thank you Jenny, you are amazing.

Jenny looks after my 13mth old little girl, I chose Jenny to look after her when I returned to work when she was just 9 months and I am so pleased with all her care. She loves going to Jenny's and gets so excited in the mornings especially when she sees Jenny's own girls, she can't wait to go and play.
They do so many things there, from crafts, playgroup to outings to the park and other places.
I always feel confident about leaving her even if she is not feeling 100% due to teething I know she will be safe and happy and that Jenny will let me know if she has any concerns.

Toby started with Jenny in Sept 2017, and it was the best decision I've ever made. I've never felt more comfortable and happy leaving either of my children with anyone.
They do so many brilliant activities as well as day trips and she is always looking for new things to try with them.
Toby has progressed so much and Jenny keeps me informed of his progress constantly. I get photos and updates in the day which I absolutely love and a lovely little booklet with daily updates.
She is almost like a second mum to my son. Even her children treat him like one of their own which I think is amazing. He absolutely adores Jenny and I get the impression the feeling is mutual, she is always so happy and smiley when she greets him in the morning and he happily goes to her every day.
The environment is lovely and homely with a brilliant selection of toys/books and a wonderful garden for them to play in.
I couldn't and wouldn't wish for a better person to look after my child and wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend Jenny to anyone!

Jenny is amazing with little boy George! I hated leaving him to start with, but she helped him and myself settle. Jenny does a lovely little diary for him, that tells me all about what he’s been up to in the day, every nappy change and what he’s eaten. I feel george is very safe with Jenny. She’s like a friend, she communicates very well about anything, we talk during George’s stay, she also posts photos on a private Facebook group. George loves Jenny and her little girls. We are so lucky to have her in our lives, George has grown so much confidence since being with her. ☺️
