About Me

My name is Joanne. I am 35 years old and live in the Lower Darwen area. Mother to 1 9 month old girl and 2 teenage boys and stepmother to 3 boys!

My Experience

Aside from 15 years experience of parenting my own 3 children and 3 stepchildren, I have worked in a number of settings with children and young people. I have worked as a self employed childminder and in a school with hearing impaired children. Currently, I work self employed at my business Kidz Station and I am also employed to work with young people in care. My placement at the moment is in a care home for children that are severely autistic and are non verbal.

My Qualifications

BA Hons Community Leadership
Level 2 Food Hygiene and Allergy Awareness
9 A-C GCSE including Maths and English

My Availability

I offer after school pick ups from Our Lady of Perpetual Succour School, Highercroft, Blackburn. I work adhoc shifts in care homes. I choose these shifts myself. If you need a babysitter then please get in touch with your requirements as I should be able to accommodate and work my job around you.

I hired Joanne to look after my son Noah who is 12 with special needs as I had unfortunately been let down by a family friend. Joanne was happy to help with very little notice which was amazing. I was nervous about leaving my son as I haven’t left him with anyone else in the day time but I needn’t have worried, he was more than fine in Joanne’s care.
Joanne having that experience of special needs it’s absolutely fabulous and definitely put my mind as ease.
I will definitely use Joanne’s services again and highly recommend her.

Joanne looks after my children 2x a week after school and sometimes more if I need her. Both my children age 5 and 9 absolutely love going to her home. They have so much fun and look forward to the days when they know Joanne will be picking them up from school. Joanne is such a friendly and warming person that I feel so relaxed with her looking after the children. Highly recommend her to everyone ❤️
