About Me

I am a Register Childminder, with over 14 years childminding experience, and lives near Calthorpe Secondary School, Fleet, Hampshire. I am married and have 3 wonderful daughters, all of whom are registered as my assistants and have undertaken appropriate first aid training.

I offer a flexible professional childminding service and provide a happy, safe and secure environment, with lots of toys and resources, where children can learn, feel confident and valued and develop in all the areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage. I endeavor to provide for every child's individual needs to ensuring they develop into happy, confident and independent children. We go out most day to local play groups, parks, woodlands areas, National Trust places, ponds etc and other places of interest and learning, or arrange to meet up with other childminders so the children can socialize, build relationship with peers and have lots of fun. I have plenty of resources and space, both inside and out, for the children to play in, including an amazing playroom. I provide a wide range of activities so that the children learn and develop to their full potential and can confidently deal with a range of situations and experiences.

My main aim is to provide a safe and fun setting, whilst giving children every opportunity to try new experiences, socialize, go on outings and learn and develop through play and arts and crafts.

My Experience

I have over 14 years experience of working as a childminder and have either been awarded 'Good' or 'Outstanding' by Ofsted for all Inspection. I have a great deal of experience of working with children and, as well as working as a childminder, I have worked voluntarily in local schools and as a trainee teacher at an infant school. I am also an EYE Provider.

My Qualifications

I am well qualified and I have undertaken various training including: Child Protection and Safeguarding, Behaviour Management, Manual Handling, Health and Safety in the Workplace, First Aid training, Food Hygiene etc.. I have completed the level 3 childminding course, Certificate in Childminding Practices (CCP) the Home-based Childcare course, which has now superseded the CCP.

I have also successfully completed the Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP) and have Qualified Teacher Status.

I love arts and crafts and have undertaken various recreational courses, including water colour painting, pottery, basket weaving, printing and jewellery making. I am also very computer literate, and I try to use these skills to provide interesting and fun activities for the children in my setting.

My Availability

From September 21, I currently have an EYFS space for Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and before and After school places for children attending Tavistock Infants and All Saints Junior Schools in Fleet

My daughter has just moved on from Jocelyn having started secondary school. She was with Jocelyn for 4 years and I cannot recommend her enough. She is amazing and really cares for all children in her setting. She is so much more than a childminder, she is an extension to our family and has provided the most wonderful, supportive, encouraging care to our daughter. Her family are just as wonderful and welcoming. I never ever had any need to worry while my daughter was in her care. The setting is perfect, impeccably clean, home cooked food and she is so easy to talk to. I honestly cannot recommend her enough.

Jocelyn came highly recommended to me by several mums, so was thrilled when she had space for my son. He settled with Jocelyn immediately, as she provides a safe, clean, friendly, and fun environment for the children she cares for. My son loves his time with Jocelyn and I’d whole heartedly recommend Jocelyn to anyone.

My children have been going to Jocelyn before and after school for over 6 months now, post Covid, and they have really enjoyed being a part of her setting. We moved to Jocelyn after using another local childminder for over 6 years and although we knew Jocelyn, it was still an unknown and we were hoping the move across would still be smooth and straightforward. We have been delighted so far! Jocelyn is easy to deal with, clearly communicates with us as parents, sets clear boundaries and expectations for the children to adhere and live up to and apparently cooks a mean chicken casserole! Her proximity to school means the kids get a nice walk to and from school each day and they’re lucky enough to have friends who also count Jocelyn as their childminder which enhances their sense of belonging and community whilst at her setting. Thanks Jocelyn :-)

Jocelyn has looked after both of my children from the age of 1, my eldest now 5 and at school and my youngest who is 2 and still going to Jocelyn 3 days a week.

When I was looking for a childminder for my eldest I was so nervous and didnt really know what to expect. Jocelyn made me very welcome and for me it felt like a home from home for my then baby! She soon settled with Jocelyn and would run in the house without a look back at me!
Now my eldest is at school she only gets an occasional visit to Jocelyn in the holidays and she loves going back!
When my youngest started all was the same and he settled so well too. He has such good fun there!

They are always out and about meeting other childminders, having adventures and learning whilst having fun.

We have a diary that is filled in everyday so i always know whats happened and dont feel like im missing anything.

I couldnt recommend Jocelyn enough she is great at what she does and has a lovely family who support her. Both my children have built great relationships with Jocelyn and her daughters which has been really lovely

Jocelyn childminds for my 6 year old son 2 evenings a week, collecting him directly from the school and she is amazing. Joshua loves going to Jocelyn's house and is often reluctant to leave! Jocelyn collects Joshua from school on my behalf, she engages with the teachers (who all know her) and will provide feedback from the school back to me if it's ever required. She provides lots of different activites for the children and they seem to love being in her home environment which is warm and welcoming, Joshua also loves to play with the other children in Jocelyn's care. She prepares lovely home cooked food, and will put on a party if it's one of the children's birthday.

We've been very happy with Jocelyn over the 6 months that we've used her and I know Joshua is always happy to spend time at Jocelyn's house. I would highly recommend Jocelyn's services for anyone in the local area seeking childminding services.
