About Me

Hi, my name is Jenny Loane. I live in the Caerau area of Cardiff and am married with two children aged 7 and 2.

I have always worked with children and chose to childmind to be able to spend more time with my children, and help other working parents as I understand the difficulties faced regarding childcare.

My Experience

I have been child minding for 5 years. Before that I have worked in nurseries and creches (including management positions) as well as an assistant to a child with autism before spending 5 years working for Barnardo's children's charity.

I also grew up with my mother fostering many children and when I turned 18, I became her back up foster carer.

My Qualifications

I have a BTEC National Diploma in Early Years, Diploma in Home Childcare, First Aid and Child Protection certificates, training in behaviour management and parenting programmes as well as full time experience with my own children.

I am continuously updating my knowledge by attending refresher courses as well as new topics/subjects.
I am currently undertaking a Welsh course.

My Availability

All day slot available for child under 5 on Mondays.

School holiday only vacancies for all ages.

School runs to and from Ysgol Gymraeg Nant Caerau.

Please telephone if you are interested in any of the above or have any questions.

Thanks, Jenny.

thank you. they are wonderful children to care for x

Jenny is really friendly & professional, she has made my daughter feel very welcome.
She also will try her best to accept extra sessions even with minimal notice given.
The equipment she has on offer for the child is amazing. Her outdoor area is like taking children to the park, she has defiantly put a lot of thought into it.
I would recommend her to anyone.
5 star.

Thanks Jenny.

Argh thank you so much. I'm so glad that Bethany has settled so well. x

Jenny has been caring for my 1 year old son, George, since August/September. I would definitely recommend Jenny, and I have, to all my friends and family.
I cant believe the transformation in my little boy since he has been in Jenny's care. His confidence has grown no end.

Jenny is a very professional person, who takes what she does very seriously, but at the same time is a very down to earth person, that makes you feel at ease. My son is more than comfortable around Jenny and looks forward to seeing her every day.
He especially loves being outdoors, which is brilliant because Jenny's back garden is like an adventure playground!

I can honestly say if you are looking for a childminder and Jenny has the availability you don't need to look any further! :-)

Thank you so much

I would recommend Jenny as a childminder. She cares for my 8 year old daughter according to my shifts. The garden is fabulous, its like a park and caters for all ages. The house is clean and child friendly. Jenny does numerous activiites with the children both in the home and out and about.She provides a variety of different foods to cater for even the fussiest of eaters. Jenny is caring but she also sets boundaries and the children I have seen her with respond in a positve way.
