About Me

. Hi, i'm Jeannette but people call me Jan.
I live in the Solihull area, a road away from Hobs Moat library
From Sept 2021 I have vacancies coming up for newborns upwards and I do funded places for 2 3 and 4 year olds if required. Along with drop off and pick ups from olton primary school. if required ,I can work term time only or do all year contracts always aiming to be as flexible as possible
.. In my last Ofsted inspection Nov12th 2015 i recieved GOOD in all four areas of the new Ofsted inspection criteria .My inspector referred to my strengths being in particular my knowledge and understanding of the children I mind ,Working in Partnership with Parents" and my safeguarding practices
26years experience has shown me children really do live by what they learn so to maximise their learning and development I insure that.
all activities I undertake with the children are included within my fees and these can include:
Music lessons for babies and toddlers, baby signing classes toddler groups or soft play. For elder ones this maybe dance classes, cinema visits,, thinktank excurisions, park and library visits,obviously during covid I was home much more but found many online educational tools which I now incorporate into the children's learning and spent many hours home schooling during lockdowns so that gave me a big insight into how schools teach maths phonics etc which again I intend to retain to enhance all childrens learning at my setting in a fun way
I had a brand new conservatory (playroom ) and outdoor patio area for the children completed Nov 2015 .when covid struck I created a separate entrance for children and so I now has a covered in area at the side that links to the playroom and created additional outdoor space that can be used even if it rains
my through lounge I use as
another play room for the children with a wide variety of age related toys ..I have, a large back garden with lots of outdoor equipment and an indoor cat and rabbit both child friendly .
I try to offer a home from home for the children with a welcoming and enjoyable environment where they learn through having fun, whilst complying with the EYFS guidelines.
The past couple of years I have gained a lot of experience with my younger grandson who is SEND(ASD) so whilst not having qualifications in this area .the hands on experience I have gained from helping him and going to groups specifically for send childrens I hope has given me priceless knowledge and empathy for what parents and children in this sector face which I hope can only be positive for myself my business and any children I care for in the future .
I hope this gives you an insight into my setting
Any further queries please feel free to contact me

I found Jan on here in November 2016, and have not looked back she currently looks after my four year old daughter and she loves it at jans. She always comes back with little fun activities she has done there, or fun little place Jan takes them. Before she came to jans my daughter had some problems in socialising with other children but has come on leaps and bounds. Jan always works with and around me as my job is shift work. My daughter starts school in September but I am happy to say she will continue at jans in the school holidays. Thank you for becoming part of the family!

Jeanette has a very 'home' from 'home' environment which instantly put me at ease. She has so many toys and activities to keep little minds active and happy - I was particularly excited about her creative learning style and fun December adventures. Jeanette has a soft kind nature and has children's fun, learning and safety at the fore front of her mind! A truly lovely lady x

Jan has been looking after my 23 month old daughter for over 6 months now. My daughter really enjoys her days at Jan's and always has done since day one. The whole day is centered around the childs entertainment and routine. Jan maintains an excellent routine with the children she looks after which I think is very important. Jan is very experienced and has made a very welcoming and homely environment for the kids. I would highly recommend Jan as a trustworthy and reliable childminder, with 100% focus on child development and also focus on the kids having fun..
