Jo is an amazing childminder who was recommended to us by friends. She has now been looking after our son since he was 4 months old and there has not been a day where he has not been happy and smiling.
We can go to work without worrying about the safety or the wellbeing of our child. He learns so many things while having a really good time. The other kids are also wonderful and are getting on well together. It is as if everybody is part of the family.
Jo is very accommodating, which we find really appreciable.
We would strongly recommend Jo to any parents looking for a loving and caring childminder.
