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 !

My son who is almost 3 has been going to happy days for almost a year now, he absolutely loves it, he has come on leaps and bounds in his speech and confidence.
Jan and Brian make me feel at ease and always there to help with advice, short notice work commitments and just overall couldn’t be more helpful.
My son can be very shy with new people but warmed to the surroundings on our first visit.
They also take him out on trips which he loves

Emma is a very caring mother who is totally interested in doing the best for her son. Her little boy was shy at first but this was to be expected meeting new people in a place he did not know. We took time to get to know what he likes and how he learns. Then we put this into practice. With positive support for his learning there was very little two year old tantrum behaviour.
He has developed into a marvellous boy. He is very outgoing and engages with other children and adults very easily. He is confident with physical activities. He is very creative, Yesterday he made a whole small village on the sand table during the afternoon. He likes to try new things and then reflects on what he has achieved, showing really good critical thinking. His highest level of development has been his language skills. He has moved over most of the areas of learning from that equal to his chronological to the 30 to 50 months area.
Emma and her son are a joy to know

Our son has been going to Jan since he was 9 months old and spent nearly 2 years there full time making friends and developing very well and Jan has always provided full reports to us to document his progress.
He now goes back during school breaks and always looks forward to it and loves his time with both Jan and Brian. Jan has always been flexible with the days and hours she can accept us dropping him off as we are both working parents and have differing shifts.
This has always been very helpful.
We would certainly recommend Jan as a child minder to anyone who asks.

This little boy has been a bright, fast learning, wonderful boy, with a cheeky smile since he was a baby.
It has been a joy to see him grow and help to reach his potential in all areas of learning,
He now attends during school holidays and we have even more fun. All the regular children I look after look forward to him being here during the holidays.
It has been a pleasure to work in partnership with such pro-active parents, who are totally engaged with their son

I've got two boys (6 and 3) and they both been going to Jan and Brian for nearly two years now. My younger son does full time and my older son does afterschool club.
We have an amazing relationship with Jan and Brian, I couldn't have asked for better child-minder!!!!!

These two boys captured my heart from the very start. They have both progressed incredibly well. They both have their individual personalities and good imaginative play. They have excellent language skills, speaking two languages and teaching me a few words. They have excellent social skills, making friends with the other children here, which produces a wonderful dynamic setting.
This whole family brings joy to our lives and we feel privileged to have played a small part in helping their sons reach their full potential

My 2 girls have been going to Jan and Brian’s now for a year and they absolutely love it. I am very happy with the care that is provided for my children and am very grateful for everything Jan and Brian do for us. In particular, my hours at work change each week but Jan and Brian are more than happy to accommodate this at short notice which makes my life so much easier. Thank you Jan and Brian.

Michele's daughters are a pleasure to look after. The youngest girl is imaginative and caring. She is always happy to join in and play with her friends and try different activities. Her older daughter is a wonderful sister. I look after her after school and she always is happy when we go to the park on the way home. Two wonderful girls from a lovely Mum.

Signed the contract and cancelled on us via massage 4 out of 6 times during settle-in session. Cancelled on us day before full time agreement so I have 12 hours to find a new childminder. lost for words, as seems to be a nice person, just show that not everyone is as nice as you may think.

There are several issues connected to these parents which I will not expose here for legal reasons as I may be taking this further.But I will reply to some of the comments. I terminated their contract before the start date, due to bad time keeping and aggressive behaviour towards me. This is perfectly legal and is in keeping with the childcare contract both parents signed. Yesterday the parents called the police to report that I had terminated the contract, but also that I had stolen childcare items from them. THEY REPORTED ME AS A THIEF. I informed the police re the contract and told them that the mother had left a bag of nappies for me to use for the baby and some toddler snacks. I had not stolen these. They were left for me to use for their child and I had told them that my husband would drop them at their house, as I was not able to drive due to an injury. The police officer arranged that nappies could be collected from my doorstep and in future they must not harass me. Most upset by this unfair review
