Jan is an amazing and caring childminder who goes above and beyond. She looked after my two children for a number of years and the progress they made during that time is credit to her and the tailored individual attention she gave them. Jan is a caring and inspiring role model for the children and I feel so privileged that my children had the benefit of her in their lives.

Debbie's children were a joy to look after. They were bright, friendly and inquisitive children who wanted to experience everything. We had so many happy times especially with outdoor play. They made a lot of friends with the other minded children which helped make a very cohesive group
These children were a credit to their parents.
I am now looking after Debbie's god-daughter who is very similar to her own children.
So I have got a lot to look forward to. I love this job!

Our daughter Mia came to Jan when she was one and a half year old. She was treated there as a family member,She went there daily and came back with a smile, sometimes she did not even want to leave, which probably best shows what kind of person is Jan and Brian,her husband .Mia started school this year, but she still can not wait for all school breaks ,which she will by spend with Bartrams family.In Summary,we were extremely happy with our choice of Jan,we entrusted our most precious possession to her and never regretted it.

Iwona, Thank you for your kind words. Your daughter Mia is very special to all of us. She is a brave, clever, and creative child. She has two very good parents who have always done the very best for her. We hope we have contributed to her development and she has enjoyed her time with us. We have all missed her a lot since she has started school but we are looking forward to seeing her during the holidays
During her last few months we followed a "Get ready for school" learning programme. Mia was able to do everything she needed to be independent and learned a lot of extra things such as learning a little French with me. She is now attending an After School Club for French and is excelling in all areas of learning. Today I saw her in a Christmas concert where she was performing with children a year older than herself. This little girl will go far !
