My Summary

Ofsted Registered
Key Worker Childcare

About Me

Hi my name is Elizabeth (Liz) Jones. I live with my husband and 2 daughters (aged 17 & 15)in the Charminster/Queens Park area.
I have been an ofsted registered childminder for 15 years. My setting provides a stimulating environment for children of all ages with the emphasis on play. We have a lovely enclosed garden with treehouse, slide and several outdoor toys. Inside we have a well-stocked playroom and a room for craft/painting/make and do.
We like to go out to the park, beach and other playgroups. I have a 7 seater car and have full business insurance.
I am very close to Queens' Park Infant and junior schools and provide a drop-off/pick up service from these schools. The after school facilities are great. I offer a home-from-home environment away from the school. The children can play (there is a table tennis table, large screen tv with playstation; wii and many hand held games), rest (there is a quiet room to relax in) or they can do their homework). The children all sit down to dinner together which is very social.

My Experience

I have been a childminder for 15 years and have seen several children from baby/toddler through to school age and beyond. I am also a community childminder which means that I offer emergency childcare when needed.

My Qualifications

I have attained a level 3 qualification and am an accredited childminder. This means that I can offer the government funded places for 2, 3 & 4 year olds.
I have also attended health and safety and food hygiene courses. I have a certificate in paediiatric first aid.
I am also registered for the 'twos twos' which is government funding for some 2 year olds.

My Availability

I am open from 7.30 to 6 from Monday to Friday, although there is some flexibility with the start and finish times.
I am currently open for the children of key workers. A list of these occupations is on the gov.uk site. Only one parent needs to be on this list.

Liz looked after my daughter Alisson since she was a baby until she became 2 years old.
They both love each other so much!!
You know that someone is good when you see in your little one face a huge smile everytime you tell that is going to see Liz.
Liz has been amazing at all time, there is no another way to describe it. She is always with a smile on her mouth, very warm welcome to the kids, always looking activities outside for them when the weather is good, teaching talking, eating, sharing, doing arts, cooking...
If you are lucky to find an space for your little one with Liz, do it.

Thank you, Moises for your lovely comments. We miss Alison very much and hope she’s enjoying Liverpool.

My children have been going to liz’s for the last 8 months.
She is an excellent childminder and my children are thriving under her care.
It was very clear from the offset that this was the right choice for us as a family. She has many years of experience but more importantly, a genuine passion for children and their development.
We have often benefitted from her advice and she is very supportive in providing for the individual needs of both my boys.
The children are never bored and there is always an array of activities provided for, along with various outings.
Liz provides a home away from home and our children are really happy there.

Thanks Karen and Jon for your lovely review.


Our daughter has been going to Liz since she was 4 months old, the transition was very easy as she looks forward to her visits. Being new parents we find Liz to be a very valuable source of knowledge and have turned to her for advise on a number of occasions and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly family environment.

I could not have asked for a better childminder than Liz. She has cared for my daughter for the last 3 years, since she her first birthday and my son from 6 months old, for 2 years. They have been completely happy with her from the offset and have come to love her like a family member. I have total trust in Liz who has been pivotal in my children's development She has supported and advised us through potty training, fussy eating and illnesses. Liz is affectionate and patient with the children and creates a homely, safe environment. The children do lots of activities: Crafts / Baking / Playgroups / trips to the farm and beach, but are also fully entertained in the house and garden which have endless toys - they often don't want to leave at the end of the day!
I feel so lucky that Liz has been able to mind my 2 children and am frankly devastated that we have to move on. Thank you Liz.
