About Me

My name is Jolene Oosthuizen, I am originally from South Africa, I am from a large family who are mostly all living abroad. I am married and have 2 sons and a daughter (all in school). When not working, I enjoy being a parent and meeting up with friends. I like barbequing, camping, outdoors, parks, beach etc. I am a registered childminder since May 2012 leaving years on nannying to spend more time with my family life. My setting consists of a lounge/play area, garden, trampoline, climbing frame and outdoor toys and equipment. I attend local parks, library and toddler/childminder groups. During school holidays older children attend other outings i.e. bowling, swimming, lido, cinema, farm, country parks etc. if car space allows. I have a large amount of resources and sensory resources to support learning and development. Myself and my partime assistant (husband) have had both Covid-19 vaccinations and I am boostered.

My Fees

  • Childminding from £6.00 per hour

Basic rate of £6 per hour for Pay as you go or over 8 years old work. £55 full day rate (8am to 6pm). £16.00 per session for after school 3pm to 6pm term time. I am an all year round childminder. I take 20 days holiday a year plus all bank holidays at half rate.

If out of hours is required, there is a separate fee for this service and only if I am available.

Meals: Children bring own lunches. Parents will need to supply meals where their children may have special dietary requirements. My fees include light snacks e.g. fruit, biscuits, crackers, bread sticks, pancake, milk or water I supply breakfast to children who attend my setting before 8am in my out of hours rate. This usually consists of cereals or toast and yogurt.

I can provide lunch/dinner at an additional fee (sandwiches, fruit and yogurt at lunch time). No cooked meals at lunch time. I can provide cooked dinner for children who attend my setting after 7pm. Occasional out of hours work

Parents are welcome to supply their own packed lunches or dinners. I am happy to heat up any food needing heating.

I no longer do weekend work or overnight care and babysitting is only for current childminding families on my books. I am not babysitting in general.

Jojo has been looking after my son, for over 6 years (since he was 2 years old, he is now 8 years old). She has played a key role in his learning & development. Jojo provides fun activities for the children in her care.

Thank you so.much. he is a pleasure to have and my son loves having him here to play with. Thank you for trusting me

Jolene has been looking after my children for a few years now, she is been always very helpful and brilliant with her 'a home away from home' environment. Jolene provides a wide, fun range of activities including plenty of outdoor exercise which I think is very important especially for young children as they need lots of fresh air. I know Jolene has been regularly taking out the kids to local parks, garden centres, trips to feed the ducks and walks in the woods. They always do little creative things for Mother’s Day, Christmas, Easter and other holidays, attend various play groups, play dates and libraries.
I would absolutely recommend Jolene as a great, very experienced and reliable childminder.

Thank you very much. They are an absolute pleasure to look after. Thank you for your trust in me. Looking forward to the next few years with them

Jojo has been my childminder for the last four years. She takes good care of my children and engages them with lots of indoor and outdoor activities. My children are always happy to go to her and that gives me peace of mind. She is a lovely lady and will highly recommend her services.

Thank you so much. They are a pleasure to care for. Always polite, friendly and well behaved and very helpful with the younger ones. My own children enjoy their company, especially Connor, always asking if they are coming and gets excited. He misses them when they don't come. Thank you for trusting me with them. Xxx

JoJo pretty much came to our rescue when the person we'd originally booked to take care of our children took suddenly ill at our home, just one hour before we were due to leave the house.

All three of our boys took a shine to her immediately and, when we arrived back home, we were greeted with tales of how "Auntie JoJo" (their name for her) had been brilliant, with a chorus of "Can we see her again?"

There's simply no better recommendation than your own children expressing that they had a great time with a childminder.

Hi thank you so much for your lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure and we has lots of fun. Thank you for the opportunity.

Jolene has been looking after my son, for over 1 year now. She is caring, fun, professional and always goes the extra mile. My son adores her and her family and she is an exceptional, inspiring person. I would recommend her without any reservations.
