Jennie is a fantastic childminder!
She goes beyond what we expect from her and provides exceptional care to children.
We started our little boy Misha with her at 7 months and he stayed with her for over a year. Full time 5 days a week. From the very start Jennie managed to make him happy and cared for him really well. He settled very quickly and never cried when i left him with Jennie.
Our little child was still breastfeeding and was moving to hard food at the start. We also had a sleeping regime which was changing as he was growing. Jennie followed all of them and was very attentive to all the changes. She has a lot of experience and children love her. She is also very accomodating with parents requests.
She makes the time for children fun and productive. Jennie helped our little Misha to learn to sit, walk and talk. She was encouraging him to develop these and many more skills. She would go with them to zoo, city farm, playgrounds, different playgroups, library etc.
Every day Jennie has been updating us on how Misha was doing and would send us lovely pictures of their activities.
She has also put together an impressive portfolio of our son with plenty of pictures and comments.
We never had any issues or questions to Jennie. And i was always comfortable with leaving Misha with Jennie. And we couldnt wish more.
I highly recommend Jennie to other parents who are looking for childcare and for a piece of mind.

My oldest son has been with Jennie for two years, since just after his first birthday. As an Early Years teacher I can whole heartedly say she has a profound depth of knowledge of the early years and child development. She takes exceptional and thoughtful care of all children and challenges them appropriately to encourage development in all areas. She plans engaging and fun activities and experiences daily. My son has always been very happy going to her and it feels she is part of our family.

We receive photos from Jennie every day showing what our son is up to. She is also great about keeping us informed during the day and pick up and drop off. Her setting is very clean and she has different activities out for the children to work with each day. She is happy to support you as a parent with things such as potty training, teeth brushing, etc. She provides snack each day but we provide lunch. We like this because she feels it is important for her to spend the time with the children she looks after instead of in the kitchen.
Jennie is also, and first and foremost, so friendly and accommodating. Her kindness and warmth are so welcome in all our encounters, and she is well loved by our son. Highly recommend!

Jennie is an incredible childminder. I would, and have, recommended Jennie to anyone who asks. If there were two words to describe Jennie, it would be ‘warm’ and ‘kind’.

Jennie looked after my two sons for a period of four years. She has seen them grow and helped them grow. When my husband and I were thinking of childcare for our older son, a friend said that she had looked for someone “who would pick them up and give them a cuddle if they fell”. This was excellent advice, and as soon as I met Jennie I knew that she would do just that.

Jennie welcomes children into her home and gives them the space to grow. She has a fantastic routine with the children where: they play at Jennie’s in the early morning; then Jennie takes them to playgroups or the park or City Farm; then they return home for lunch and a nap before more playtime. Our boys loved this routine – it allowed them to feel safe and comforted in knowing how their day was structured, as well as giving them time outside everyday and time inside where Jennie could focus on the things they enjoyed in her home. We were constantly amazed at Jennie’s innovation in the things they would make with her and how much she would change the space in her home to a full art or playdough class.

Jennie is amazing at communication. Jennie set up a WhatsApp group for my husband and I where she would send photos every single lunchtime of what our sons had been doing. It quickly became the highlight of my day – to see my sons being happy, independent and playing. It was also a great way to know what they had been doing in the day so we could ask them at dinner time. Jennie is also very structured in her recording of what the children have been doing. She makes a folder with photos of them and what they have been doing, as well as their art work. She also completes an OFSTED book with their progress. It has always been such a joy to sit and look through these and see what our boys have done and how they have grown in Jennie’s care. The folder with photos and their art is the sort of thing that you always tell yourself you will make for you and your children but never do – so having the one Jennie made is really incredibly special.

Overall, it is the love, care and warmth that Jennie gives children in her care. She goes the extra mile(s) to make sure they are happy. What more could you want? This morning in fact my youngest son said “you know Mama, I would really like to be at Jennie’s every day of my life”. This is a boy who has now started school and thinks he is a ‘big boy’ – but still he wants to be in Jennie’s home which he still loves. We are so lucky to have had Jennie’s kindness and support for four years and would recommend that you meet Jennie and get to enjoy that for you and your family too.

We miss Jennie so much - but are very lucky that we were able to benefit from her incredible childcare, her love, her support and her warmth.

We were looking for a childminder to look after our (then) 10 month old baby girl (Ida). We found Jennie on the Camden borough website for childminders.

We chose Jennie because she was very warm and friendly, organised with all her paperwork, her flat was sparkling clean and when we visited there were other happy children in her care who played nicely and were kind to Ida.

Having been on maternity leave for one year, it was hard for me to leave Ida with anyone as I was very attached to her and didn't want to part with her for even a minute ! However, I felt comfortable leaving her in Jennie's care and confident that she would be well looked after.

Jennie provided us with the reassurance we needed from day one by setting up a group WhatsApp so she could share photos of each day with me and my husband. It was so nice to receive these photos while we were busy at work so we had a nutshell of Ida's day.

What came across clearly throughout the time Ida spent with Jennie was how much Jennie cared for the children in her care and how much she valued the 'nurturing' aspect of her role. She was very kind to the children and valued each of them as individuals always going out of her way to buy presents for them at Christmas and birthdays. She also placed great importance in modelling to the children in her care how to be kind and gentle as well as respectful to one another. Ida is very attached to the other children in Jennie's care and I often see her saying goodbye to the other children with a kiss and a hug.

Ida, now 3, is such a happy, confident little girl who loves singing out her nursery rhymes and alphabet and counting from 1-20. Jennie has really contributed in helping to shape Ida in all aspects.

We can't thank Jennie enough for everything she has done for Ida.

Jennie is absolutely incredible. She has been looking after our son since just before he was 1 (he is now almost 2). Sam adores Jennie and the wonderful environment she provides for him and the other children she cares for.

I instantly liked Jennie when I met her and as Sam has been with Jennie she has shown just why. She provides a caring, warm, happy environment for all of the children with her. She fills thier day with activities, trips out, confidence building and love.

Deciding who to leave your children with is difficult and those first few days back at work are not fun. But Jennie does everything in her power to make it a positive experience for the children - and parents.

Jennie goes well beyond what we could ever have dreamed of for Sam. He instantly started to develop more in her care, he learned important lessons such as sharing and above all he is happy. We often say that we cannot believe how much Jennie does with the children she cares for. She finds endless ways to keep them entertained and learning. What is abundantly clear is that this all comes completely naturally to Jennie.

When Sam is with jennie she identifies areas he needs to build on and works on that in a way that he does not even realise. In addition to the ofsted requirements, Jennie produces a portfolio with photographs and notes on the little one's days and thier development. It is so wonderful to receive Sam's and have a beautiful record of him playing, enjoying himself and learning. On top of this, Jennie sets up a WhatsApp group and sends us photos of Sam's day. Such a beautiful way to keep up-to-date with what he is doing.

I honestly do not know what more anyone could want or ask for in the person looking after thier child. We tell everyone about Jennie and would recommend her in a flash.
