About Me

Welcome to Jellytots childcare! HI I am Sharon. I am an experienced childcare practitioner - registered since 2000. I previously lived and worked in London, and I have recently moved to southend and I am hoping to continue childminding. I provide a fun, warm, friendly home environment. I am a member of Pacey and have many childcare qualifications, including level three childcare qualifications.

I have four children, of my own, aged from 16to twenty six years old. We have a small pet dog called Cleo, she is a cocker spaniel/shih tzu cross. We also have two tortoises. I am close to both Southend east and southend central station (walkable) and a short drive from Southend Victoria station. I am close Sacred Heart schools and porters grange schools. I provide a welcoming friendly, free flow and diverse setting. I undertake all required and relevant training in order to comply with Ofsted and undertake ongoing training regularly. I have extensive experience working with SEN children including ADHD, autism, dyslexia and Asperger. My setting is diverse and I ensure I provide a wide range of activities, trips and outings to meet all children and family needs.

Feel free to call or email me for a chat about my service or your requirements, or advice in general.

good luck and kind regards

Sharon has absolutely saved my life when it comes to who cares for my little boy. From the get-go, I felt comfortable over the phone discussing her day-to-day childcare practises and what my little boy would need in terms of days, hours, development.

My little one is a real energy absorber, so it was a relief when we settled him in that he immediately toddled off to sit with Sharon, play with the other children and pretty much wave me out of the door! I also felt instantly calm around Sharon and from all her experience, I knew she was the perfect fit for him.

Sharon continuously updates me throughout the day on how he is getting on, anything that i need to be aware of, and ultimately enables him to grow and hit his milestones. She has stepped in on emergencies when there has been availability and I would like to think we have a very positive parent/provider relationship which allows for easy communication and understanding for my toddlers needs!

I found Sharon when I needed a childminder when my son was a young baby. I was in ill health (I have MS), and I desperately needed a break during the week with no friends or family nearby, and partner at work. I was very worried and anxious about leaving him with anyone. I decided to try Sharon given her level of experience and qualifications, and I will always be grateful that I did. Sharon was absolutely fantastic, efficient, reliable and actually a really nice person and very easy to deal with, it was a big relief. She clearly is a natural with young children, and she always tries to help with anything that comes up, needing an extra day at short notice etc. We only stopped using Sharon when we moved out of the area, I found the difference with another childminder (even though I'd found her on Ofsted) and really regretted not being able to have Sharon. All I can say is, don't hesitate, she's great!
