Hi I’m Joanne McHugh, I live with my partner and 3 children, we live in Leeds 9 on the Dunhill estate ,just off Selby Road,we have lived here for 22 years. I have 10 years experience in childminding and have also been first aid trained since 2009. Previous to this, I worked in local nurseries because I enjoy working with children, I offer a warm, welcoming and safe environment. I also offer a wide range of activities, these can be anything from fun days out to local parks, visiting the farm, taking the children to soft play areas etc. There are also a variety of fun activities for the children to enjoy whilst in my care at home such as messy play and creative activities whilst also making sure I am providing children with early years education in maths and literacy to help them achieve other milestones. In my home setting I also provide a large sercure garden with a variety of outdoor equipment the children can use(bikes, slides, playhouse, sandtray) suitable to the ages i care for which are 0-4 years,to discuss your childcare needs or arrange a visit feel free to contact me on,many thanks Joanne.

Joanne has had my children for 4 good years. She has loved my kids excellently. I totally recommend her for all children. She is ery helpful during workimg hours and also out of hours. She has had my new born up to 5years too. Her entire family are very kind too. Words cannot describe how happy i am that she had been my child minder. I moved out of leeds hence why we seperated but we still are very much in touch. My kids miss her dearly. They always speak about her. My oldest daughter always ask when is she going to Joanne.
I assure anyone seeking child care to head this way! No regrets. Always a pleasure. Much love, Harriet.
