Jackie began looking after my daughter when I returned to work after maternity and she made the transition so easy Emily loves going to Jackies and always has fun. Jackie is so professional and you can see that she genuinely enjoys looking after the little ones. My daughter has developed so much and I think this is down to the care and attention that Jackie gives each one of the kids in her care. Jackie is very helpful and flexible and goes above and beyond to deliver an excellent childminding service. I cannot recommend this lady enough!
