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
Jan is a gentle, caring and generous lady and an excellent Childminder. Jan took care of our daughter Imogen 5 days per week from March 2012 until December 2013. She provided a perfect home from home environment for Imogen who quickly settled in with Jan's family and the other children. We were nervous about leaving Imogen with someone because she had previously been cared for by her Grandparents, but Jan was very sensitive to this and ensured Imogen felt secure with lots of cuddles and fun times!
Imogen grew and developed wonderfully during her time with Jan. She loved attending lots of different play groups and outings with Jan and the other children. Imogen also benefitted from being part of the school-run routine for the older children. Imogen always had lots of exercise with Jan by going for walks and venturing outdoors come rain or shine!
Jan was always very accommodating and flexible to my sometimes awkward work hours. She was also extremely helpful when I had another baby when she went out of her way to makes things easier for us in the early days.
Imogen had to leave Jan's care only because we moved away from the area, but she still talks about Jan now and loves to visit her house for a play and cuddle! We were sad to leave Jan because we really couldn't have asked for more from her as a Childminder and friend!
I have used Jan's services for over 7 years now, firstly my eldest daughter Beth (now 13) went to Jan before and after school and at school holidays and now Jan cares for my youngest daughter, Phoebe (4) and has done since she was 7 months old. Phoebe still goes to Jan before and after school and at school holidays. Jan is fantastic and extremely flexible which has supported our hectic family and working life, in fact I would say Jan has been a major part in me being able to work. Jan and her family have welcomed both my children into their home and has created a home from home setting which has enabled easy settlement and continues to offer a environment where phoebe feels safe and happy. Jan is genuinely loved by Phoebe and to her Jan is like a family member. Jan is always arranging activities and keep Phoebe very busy which is important for her development. I would highly recommend Jan to any parent looking for childcare. Thank you Jan for all the help, support and care you give x
I canâ€™t sing Jans praises enough, she has been looking after our daughter Lucy since she was 6 months old. Lucy now attends plantation primary school but still goes to Jan before and after school.
Jans setting has become a home from home for Lucy and thatâ€™s exactly what we wanted when we looked for a childminder. She is very much welcomed in by all of Jans family. The relaxed and calm atmosphere helped Lucy settle in instantly. Jan has always been extremely flexible and this has helped us a lot over the years.
Lucy is always kept busy when in Jans. Playgroups, libraries and trips to the park are not even half of the things she used to get up to. She was always out and about socialising with other children.
Thank you Jan, you are an amazing childminder and have been and continue to be a massive part of Lucyâ€™s life.
A big thank you to Jan and her lovely family who took such good care of our eldest son who was attending Plantation school. We had a previous very unpleasant experience with childcare and we are so lucky to have found her!
We wouldn't change Jan if it wasn't to move to a different area but we shall continue to use her services on holidays when possible for all 3 of our children. It is very difficult to find the right person but we felt very secure knowing that she was taking care of our little man as we both are full time working parents.
