My 2 years old wasn’t happy in Nursery, once he started at J’D’s I saw how in one week he transitioned and adapted so easily!, Jackie is very supportive, flexible and I think she has “magnet for children” my son is now almost 4 and has been very happy there, he has never said that he doesn’t want to go there, they have the exact amount of assistants and kids are always engaged and looked after. Nice food given and Jackie always responds quickly when asked something on email or text. The house is very nice, clean and spacious with a garden and toys. My son is safe there and never had any issues. I highly recommend them. ❤️🌸

Thank you for a lovely review & I am very happy you are happy with the service myself & my staff provide 👍😊
I was looking for a childminder for my little boy for a long time. i visited few places but weren't really happy until i met Jackie. She was so welcoming, friendly and knowledgable i knew straight away this is the place for my little man. I go to work from Monday to Friday and i leave my child for full day. The fact that i don't need to worry as i know he is in good hands means everything to me. The place is perfectly clean, the setting is amazing ( garden is outstanding ) and the food is great. (My little boy always come back home full, never complains he is hungry :))
Jackie teaches them a lot of things. The preparation she gives for the children to start new Big school is very impressive. My son when he started was very shy and didn't really speak a lot. Since he is been going to Jackie's he improved drastically. His speech is great and he become very outgoing and socialise with other children with no problem.
I highly recommend Jackie, my son and myself couldn't be happier! The other day we were driving to Jackie's and my son said to me: Mummy i love my nursery! That says it all!
My daughter attended jd's when she was 18 months until she was 3, we had to leave due to moving house, my daughter who is now almost 4 still misses and talks about Jackie. She has the most fantastic setting for childcare, both indoors and outside play, my daughters behaviour improved so much, manners, nap times, eating habits to name but a few, all improved under jackies care. I had seen many childminders prior to visiting Jackie, but as soon as I walked into her house I knew I'd found "the one". We still miss you Jackie! ?

Thank-you so much for your lovely review & it was lovely having Ellen & we all miss her & wish her well in school September .
My daughter has been with jd under 5's since September.
It took me a long time searching through childminders, and me doubting going back to work.
As soon as i spoke to Jackie and stepped into her house, my husband and i knew her setting was perfect for our daughter. She is smiley, warm and her setting had a sense of calm and care. It is a beautiful home, that has been dedicated to the children. It is like a mini nursery, full of fun, bright and educational toys, with the benefit of it being a homely environment.
My daughter loves going, she is so happy there. Jackie and her team are lovely, they are dedicated to their job and great at what they do. All the children are happy, well behaved and seem to love being there.
I am so grateful to have found this setting and wiil recommend to any parent and family!
Jackie and her team are fabulous. This is the first place my 2 year old would happily run off and leave me and sometimes doesn't want to leave! Jackie provides so much for them to do what ever their age group and even the quiet ones come out of their shell as they learn to join in.
Jackie herself is totally committed to her job and it shows. The house and play areas are beautiful and there is a lovely garden area with plenty of appropriate toys. Jackie has the perfect balance of care and discipline needed to make children feel safe. When you are a working mum I can safety say this has taken away alot of that guilt feeling us mums get because it's just like a family. Thanks jackie and team
