Jan Jan is an amazing child minder. She made us all feel like family! My son still talks about her til this day. Her and her husband and her son are all amazing people. They have the perfect setting! I would definitely be seeking their help if I need to.
Thank you jancis for everything you did for my son. Xx

You will not find a better childminder than Jan and Bryan, their personalised attention and love has seen our little girl thrive under their care for the past 3 years.

They have been the biggest support to us over the years, and have become part of our family, so much so that the thought of our little girl moving on to school and not seeing them every week leaves a ache as they are just the most wonderful people you will ever meet. Theres so much I could say about our incredible experience - their flexibility for changing schedules or last minute changes is a huge support for working parents, incredible home cooked meals despite intolerances, help with development, being a sounding board and tapping into Jans wealth of knowledge as one walks the path of parenthood as a first time parent. There’s nothing more reassuring than seeing your child happily toddle off in the morning and come home happy and excited to tell you what they did that day.

We are so thankful to you both ‘jan jan’ and Bryan, you’ve had a remarkable impact on all of us, but especially Taelyn and we are grateful for all the effort and time you have invested in her, none of it went unnoticed - we will continue to sing ‘twinkle twinkle chocolate bar’ daily and think of you both 😆

Jan and Bryan are two of the most wonderful people you could ever want to have in your children’s lives. My children adored going there and they both thrived under their love and care so much so that on my day off when I did the school run and my 2 year old saw Bryan doing the school run she would get so upset as she wasn’t going home with him!!
Communication is top notch and the flexibility they provide is so reassuring. My husband and I worked over an hour away and we knew if there was ever an issue with traffic etc that the children would be well looked after until we got there and without the judgement you often get with nurseries!
We moved recently to be closer to work and leaving these two behind was such a wrench!
My children loved Jan Jan and Bryan, so much so that only the other day, 3 months after we left my 2 year old said “miss jan jan and Bryan”. Thank you both for loving my two as much as we do. Xxx
