Finding Jackie to look after our son James was probably the best decision my wife and i have ever made, we had previously had a bad experience with a child minder so we were concerned about finding another. when we eventually found Jackie it was such a relief, James loves going to Jackie's he is totally relaxed in her home and enjoys staying with her, she is a warm, caring and professional in her approach to the children she cares for, i can honestly say i know when my son is with Jackie i can relax in the knowledge that he is safe and well cared for. For Jackie i believe from what i have seen that although she is running a business the care and love she shows the children she cares for go above and beyond good business, both James and Jackie have developed a bond that no ofsted report can measure. If you are looking for a safe loving and nurturing environment for your child i can wholeheartedly recommend Jackie
