About Me

Hi, I'm Jo I live with my husband and our children, we are DBS checked.I also work alongside my assistant who is my mum.

I offer a home-from-home setting. I'm flexible with routine and nothing is too much trouble so whatever you need for your child's care, just ask and I will try to accommodate.

By providing a wide range of activities based on your child's interests, I ensure that your child will feel comfortable, happy, and engaged in their learning. Our main aim is to have fun every day! I have a playroom that leads out onto our large garden.

I have re-registered with Ofsted, As I have started up my childminding service again after expanding my setting, I am fully insured, and hold current valid pediatric first-aid & Safeguarding certificates.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

My Experience

I honestly couldn’t recommend Jo enough, I struggled when having to return to work from maternity leave when my son was just 4 and a half months old but Jo really goes that extra mile sending me loads of pics and updates. I couldn’t ask for anyone better to look after my son when I can’t be there. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Perfect child care!

As first time parents we were obviously very anxious about finding child care and feeling comfortable leaving our 9 months baby boy with someone else. We needn’t have worried.

We knew from our first visit to Jo’s setting that it was perfect for us. Our baby has been with Jo for a few months now and we couldn’t be happier. He absolutely loves going to play and has nothing but smiles when I drop him off. He is always going on adventures, doing crafts and learning and we are updated through each day.

He has grown so much in a short time, learning from the other children and has made new friends.

Jo is professional but lovely and our boy clearly adores her. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

We are delighted with Jo and her family, after almost 5 months since the birth of our daughter, a return to work earlier than expected made us look for a place to leave our little one, with all the fears that this entails, and after a few days with Jo I can say that we could not have chosen better. Not only her amazing house full of games and wonderful people, but also her way of getting involved and telling you how they spent their day. We definitely couldn't be happier. Thank you so much for everything Jo.

First time mum here, and saying that I was terrified about leaving my boy (11 months) to someone else's care after practically leaving completely isolated due to covid, it's an understatement! When I met Jo for the first time, I was already feeling better! Not only the setting is amazing but she gave us immediately a sense of great professionalism while still being friendly and approachable. Our work situation it's not the easiest regarding planning and she showed from the beginning to be flexible and understanding and really wanted to do everything in her power to help us. She kept in contact to update us with procedures and improvements till we finally decided to start with settling.
Barely 5 minutes after we left for the first session, we already received a picture of our LO smiling and enjoying the new environment. Even if the baby was absolutely chilled and having fun all time, she still kept us informed of how the day was going and sent us some pictures in the mean time to keep our mind at ease.
There's always some new activities planned, giving the chance to discover and learn while having fun.
They're very inclusive of other cultural backgrounds and for us that's absolutely brilliant.
Our boy loves animals (he's always surrounded by them at home) so he (and us too) was amazed by the presence of the furry friends.
Baby enjoyed every minute of his day and we couldn't be happier!

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Jo for making our little mans Settling In Day so enjoyable. From the start Jo has been so welcoming and this was no exception. His day was filled with activities such as making bird feeders and meeting and interacting with the families animals. We were worried he would be upset when I left but he was so content playing with Jo and the large selection of toys he didn’t even notice I’d gone. Jo has been so reassuring, professional and super organised throughout the whole of the process that’s it’s made the transition from maternity leave (first time mum) back to work so much easier. We cant wait to see you again this week. Thank You 😊 🎨🧩🐔🥁🧸🚜
