review of Jansan - Nanny in Liverpool
It was fantastic! We miss Janet now! xxx
My both children have been in Janet’s care setting full-time since November 2014. At that time Gareth was 2 years 10 months old and Michelle was 4 months old. When Gareth was 3 years old he was referred to Autistic Spectrum Disorder Pathway by a paediatrician. My family needed childcare urgently because my husband had to carry on with his work while I was unwell and had to go into hospital for a month. We found Janet online via this website.
Very soon I realised how fortunate I was to have Janet as our childminder. She is kind, calm and patient and is able to connect with children of all ages and provide a happy and stimulating environment in her gorgeous tidy house with a large garden and a play shed. She conducts herself professionally, respects confidentiality and undertakes trainings. I feel that Gareth has benefitted immensely from being in a smaller group of children in general and being in Janet’s care setting in particular due to the fact that she fully meets all his additional needs.
Janet’s organisational skills and paperwork is immaculate. She familiarised me with all her policies and procedures. She always gives me accurate childminding receipts, accident reports, administration of medication slips. She completes children’s daily logbooks so I know what they ate and when they slept. She has produced the development journals (illustrated with photos) for my both children.
Janet fully cooperates with us as a family and also liaises brilliantly with other professionals. She wrote a reference for Gareth’s DLA form. She provided the breakdown of received payments and a supporting letter when HMRC was checking my tax credit award. She attended the meetings in line with EHAT (Early Help Assessment Tool) procedure, formerly known as CAF (Child Assessment Form). She incorporates play plans and communication strategies given to her by SENCOs from both Liverpool City Council (as I live in Speke) and Knowsley Borough Council (as they fund Gareth’s free 15 hours of childcare a week). She even invested in a set of three “Sing and Sign!” DVDs (which is a baby BSL communication programme that our both children have attended and love practicing at home) to ensure the continuity of care between our home and her care setting.
I am very happy with a level of care our both children have received at Janet’s and it was with great regret that recently I gave Janet a notice that both my children will be attending two local nurseries near our home. Janet has already provided the nurseries with a smooth handover of care by meeting with their staff.
I would absolutely recommend Janet as a great and reliable childminder.

Thank you for such a lovely review. I already miss the children. I wish you all best wishes for the future. Jan
