About Me

I AM BASED IN ORRELL PARK L9 8DN

I HOLD A GOLD MEMBERSHIP IF YOU WISH TO CONTACT ME JUST PRESS THE MESSAGE BUTTON.

I LIVE IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO ORRELL PARK TRAIN STATION WITH LINKS TO VARIOUS BUS ROUTES THROUGHOUT THE LIVERPOOL AREA.

FREE NURSERY EDUCATION FUNDED PLACES AVAILABLE FOR 15 HOURS FOR 2, 3 & 4 YEAR OLDS.

30 HOURS OF FUNDED NURSERY EDUCATION OFFERED.

(criteria needs to be met for a free place for 2 year olds and for the free funded 30 hours for 3/4 year olds).

Ofsted registered childminder rated GOOD July 2017 Fully qualified with a NVQ level 3 in childcare and a Diploma of higher education in Support Learning and Development. I have chartered educator status which helps the children with their learning and development.

I have completed part 1,2,3 & 4 in Makaton I now implement these new signs i have learnt with all children in my care.

I registered as a childminder in 2004 and I cater for children from 3 months of age. I offer a home from home environment in my family home in ORRELL PARK for children of all ages I also have a log cabin which is situated at the end of my garden, this is a play room for the children to use aswell as using my house.

I am married to Steven 24 years, we have 2 boys (24 and 18 yrs).

Children are cared for in a family environment.

The children socialize with other children throughout the day whilst attending drop in sessions with local childminders, toddler groups, story sessions at the local library, soft play area's. In the school holiday we go on outings to the beach, museums, farms, ferry, parks, there is absolutely loads of different places we visit..

The children enjoy free play with lots of activities on offer eg, games, puzzles, paint, lego, dolls, prams, cars, garages, reading and lots of creative activities too etc etc.....

The children are encouraged to be independent in my care.. all personal care is encouraged Eg, toileting, washing hands, putting coats on, zipping coats up etc..

I also encourage the children to share, take turns, tidy up after themselves and using their manners, please, thankyou, pardon me, excuse me. Also to be respectful when out in the community when visiting toddler groups, soft play or any outing that we venture on.

This is all part of growing up, being a good role model can instill a good starting point in a young child's life.

I have a 7 seater car which I ferry the children about in, appropriate car seats available for different age groups.

I am fully insured and Ofsted registered. I can take any childcare vouchers, if I am not enrolled with the voucher scheme you have I shall enroll with them.

I have an open door policy, you can visit my setting anytime. As I would like you to feel comfortable of where you might be sending your child or children.

If you feel I meet the necessary requirements and you would like to meet me please don't hesitate to contact me.

My Experience

I am fully qualified with a NVQ level 3 in childcare learning and development, diploma of higher education and chartered educator status along with numerous training courses Eg, Paediatric first aid, Safeguarding and most recently Makaton training along with many more course I've attended.. but I do feel the best qualifications I have is being a mum myself, I have 2 grown up boys which I feel meets the criteria of being a registered childminder and also worked as a babysitter with a babysitting agency.

My Qualifications

NVQ level 3 in childcare learning and development and a diploma of higher education in learning development and support (equivalent to a NVQ level 4/5 in childcare).

I also have chartered educator training.

I will soon be a Makaton friendly setting too.

I needed someone to help care for two of my grand children. The youngest had never been with a child minder before and they were away from home. They went straight in with Joe and had an amazing first day. They were eager to return and complained on the days they didn’t go. There was a good variety of activities for them and trips out. Joanne quickly got to know their little ways, when they needed naps etc. I can’t praise her enough, we were very lucky to find her.

My son has been with Joanne since September 2018. He has come on so much, we moved him from a bigger nursery- he gets so much more attention and it shows. Joanne is great with him, if I've had any worries she is very approachable and will always do what she can. She uploads pictures of them throughout the day and will text you if she has any concerns (if they seem under the weather ect)

Joanne has looked after my son for the last year After being very reluctant to put him with any childminder she was excellent with me an my son she done taster sessions to help him settle in she was very flexible with times and days to suit us I am very pleased with the progress Joseph has made since he has been in her care he is a lot more out going and confident and also has learnt to get along and share with other children his age i have been so pleased with the care Joanne has provided i have decided to keep him on with Joanne when he is 3 instead of changing him to a school nursery she makes his time so enjoyable when he is there with different outings and activities Joanne makes it easy for me to leave Joseph with her as she keeps me updated with his diary and photos she also has an fantastic wooden cabin specially built just for the kids it’s very cosy and warm with TVs toys and lots of other things for the children she also had an amazing playhouse built for the kids with an upstairs everything ther is just fantastic !! I would highly recommend Joanne she is very caring and loving lady and fantastic childminder !!

I can honestly say that my boy's and I hit the jackpot when we found Joanne. She's fantastic with the kid's, really enjoys what she does and does it to such a high standard of care. My boy's adore her and according to them their "never going to stop going to Joanne's!" I know that they are in a safe and happy environment and have 100% trust in Joanne. My children are my world, so I wouldn't leave them with anyone I couldn't trust to do my job while I'm not there. Joanne provides a caring, fun, safe, happy environment in the best log cabin ever, it's like a giant playhouse for the kid's.... just wonderful. Thank you Joanne.
