My son has just spent three years being looked after by Jophi and her lovely family. I was new to childminding when I initially started thinking about child care for my son. I made a few visits to local childminders but after spending time with them we simply didn't click. I was about to give up searching for a childminder and then I found Jophi on this site and I definitely made the right decision.
When I first met up with Jophi and her family, I was overwhelmed by her caring and fun nature. She is compassionate, professional and creates a stimulating educational environment for children. Both Jophi and George have two lovely children that are extremely lively, friendly and are great role models for younger children to aspire to.
It's tough going to work each day and leaving your children, however I always felt happy doing this knowing my little boy was with Jophi having a great time. I also enjoyed checking out all the photos she sends throughout the day.
Jophi did not take any sick days and she did not cancel any days due to other reasons. She only had one short holiday break over Christmas and was very reliable and accommodating to all of my needs.
Over the past three years my son has had an amazing time doing every day things with Jophi and her family. I can not recommend her enough and I am glad that she played such an active role in his development.
I will miss getting show and tell items ready on a Monday night and will obviously miss Jophi.

My son has loved his time with Jophi. He is kept very busy and entertained every day and has made some lovely friends. Jophi is always happy, very approachable and willing to assist when extra days are needed. Jophi is always fair in her approach and also takes child safety very seriously. I would highly recommend Jophi for anyone looking for a child minder and she will be missed when my son starts school in September. Thank you Jophi!

My daughter has been going to Jophi for nearly 2 years now and we wouldn't think of going any where else.

Since going to Jophi's, my daughter's speech has come on so much, she's coming out with new words all the time. Always got a new song to sing to us and a story to tell!

Jophi makes my daughter feel so welcome in her home and is so helpful and kind to her, I've never once worried about leaving my daughter for the day because I know she will be looked after so well.

Although my daughter will be going to school this year, I look forward to my son going to Jophi and to watch him learn as much as my daughter has.

Jophi has so many different things for the children to do, both inside and out. My daughter will come home with pictures and drawings that she has done throughout the day, and stories of making houses for the insects and recycling!

My daughters favourite thing to do at Jophi's house is show and tell. Each week my daughter will ask if its time for show and tell, finding something of hers to take for that week - helping her learn the alphabet.

I cannot recommend Jophi enough to anyone who asks about where my daughter goes, she ready is fantastic!!

Day 1 here:I had to leave my kid crying at Home 2 Home, that was his first stay with a child minder.Within no time this place has become his most favorite one.

He enjoyed the stay and learned a lot as well, Improvement in eating habits and communication was very clearly visible after he started being in Home 2 Home.

I am pretty impressed by the 'Daily dairy' provided to us which has the details of what he had, how the day went, what all activities done and highlights of the day along with few pretty pics.

Most imp thing about Jophi and George, these people are so cool and more like family than childminders, they have taken care of my son to the best.
I am sure my kid will remember them for long time though it was just a 3 months stay for him here.

As the name says, this place is a home away from home for our 2 year old daughter. She got settled within two days and for the last 4 months she is being taken care by Jophi and her family during day hours(8.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday) .

My daughter just loves going to Jophi's place and she gets lot to play and learn from there. We are amazed in our daughters overall development and knowledge gain in a short 4 month period. Jophi takes children to nearby park, library and make them involved in many creative activities.The best part, we get timely updates through Whatsapp as videos, images and messages all through the day and we don't feel our baby is away from us.

Jophi provides various food flavors and varieties in the menu. Cleanliness and general hygiene maintained at the settlement is commendable.

The very first time we visited the family, we could meet four smiley faces filled with positive energy, and in this four months the smiles just got wider :)
