I have been using Jackie's childminding for over 2.5 years now. My kids love her and have great fun in her group. Jackie offers children a wide range of interesting activities including outdoors, craft and attending groups. In the evenings Jackie sends us pictures from the day. I have 100% trust in her and peace of mind when I am at work. I would definitely recommend her to other parents.

My little man has been coming to Jackie for a year next month, he wasn't even a year old when I left him and I was really nervous of how he would find having a childminder. Jackie spends so much time and effort with the children that I often say she does more with our son than we do!! He is more than just looked after and fed he is genuinely cared for and is engaged in seasonal activities and always out and about having so much fun. His daily journal and pictures I receive every day showing me what they have done is great as I love seeing the activities he's been involved in.

I would 100% reccomend Jackie and so would my son who asks to go to hers when we get in the car on the days that I don't work lol!

Words can't express the service that Jackie provides. My son has been with Jackie since he was 11 months old. Jackie provides a safe ,nurturing ,calm and organised environment for any child to develop and explore.
She is an angel and my son absolutely adores going to Jackie ,she is truly amazing person ,she plans daily activities with them, taking them to farms,soft play areas, baby and toddler groups and also my son has come home with lots of arts and crafts that he has made.
The little things always count,Jackie sends on a daily basis pictures of all the different activities so you don't feel that your missing out .
I can only but praise an highly recommend Jackie and the wonderful service she provides.

I literally cannot put in to words just how amazing Jackie has been since becoming my son's childminder! My son is almost 1 and in the short time he has been with Jackie, his confidence & development has grown significantly. Jackie does weekly activities such as going to the farm, childminder groups, soft play to stay and play days at her home where they do arts and craft as well as play with the masses of toys that she has, it is a real home from home environment. Jackie does a number of lovely gestures such as sending pictures of my son to me in the evenings which she has taken throughout the day, which is amazing as it makes me feel I am not missing out and I can also see just how happy he is there! I cannot recommend Jackie as a childminder enough, she is like my fairy godmother!

Our daughter Karolina has been attending Jackie's group for almost 2 years, since she was just 7 months old. During these two years she has made great progress in terms of her cognitive, emotional and especially, social development and communication. Karolina has been participating in a wide range of activities offered by Jackie, including attending childminder groups and local educational venues for kids as well as frequent outdoor activities, which our daughter particularly enjoys. Karolina waits with excitement for each session with Jackie and there is a big smile on her face each time when she sees Jackie and other children from her group. From our perspective, as working parents, Jackie's group gives us peace of mind as we know that our child is safe and happy while we are at work.
