About Me

I am married with two children aged 17 and 14 years (in 2021)
We have 2 cats.

My resent Ofsted I got an 'Outstanding' grading, in December 2014.
I'm a friendly socialble person and have a great relationship with the parents and children I care for. Look at my reviews from parent's. If there aren't any recent reviews it's because I still have the same families as last year.

I offer a wide range of activities in a warm, friendly and welcoming environment.

I drive so I am able to take the children on various outings to farmer palmers, Moors valley, parks, play areas, toddlers, woods, children centres and many more giving the children interesting experiences.

I have my mother as my assistant, which enables me to offer flexibility with childcare and increase numbers.

My Experience

I have been Childminding since May 2002 (over 19 years) and thoroughly enjoy caring for children, I have always had a career working with children and started childminding before having my own children.

We keep busy and take part in outings and activities daily.

Jennie has been looking after my daughter for 18 month, from the age of 1 to 2 and a half. My daughter has developed incredibly due in great part to Jennies attentive care, guidance and support. As well as helping my daughter to develop physically and mentally, Jennie also strives to provide a fun and enriching experience for the children in her care. Most days bring a new adventure, with walks, park visits and spending time in nature a staple of their day. Above all, I know my daughter is safe and (very!) happy when she spends time with Jennie and her friends in the setting, and it’s very clear that Jennie cares deeply for the children she looks after. I genuinely couldn’t ask for more and I’m incredibly grateful that we found Jennie!

Jennie has been minding for my 3 year old for 18 months now and also picks up my school aged son at 3pm. We do not trust many people at all to look after our boys but we feel very safe with them at Jennie’s! She is friendly, professional and has really bonded with my boys. We chose Jennie because she takes the children out everyday on a fun adventure which they absolutely love, while making the most of where we live and giving them lots of great memories! Jennie also provides daily photos of their adventures so we get to see what they’ve been up to! Highly recommended!

Jennie has been a wonderful support to Marcie since she had just turned two and had really struggled settling at nursery.
It was a great relief to find Jennie, who understands Marcie’s needs and has enabled her to feel safe and come out of her shell.
Marcie’s language has come on leaps and bounds and she always refers to Jennie as “my Jennie”. A great compliment as Marcie does not always like everybody .
Thank you for providing Marcie with the best start in life I could have wished for, it’s a great shame she can’t stay with you till she’s 16!!
A huge thank you for being you Jennie.

Jennie took on my little man kiefer from the age of 6 months. He has come on leaps and bounds whilst being with jennie. He loves the outings to the farm and the beach and the park. Jennie provides a safe enviroment for the children and and does so many different activities come rain or shine. Being able to see what he is up to on a daily basis with photos of his adventures I couldn’t ask for anymore. He comes home tired everyday from doing so much. Jennie is very professional and is very easy to talk to and get along with. She is also very accommodating when it comes to kiefers needs and his routine changes I cant sing her praises enough! Jennie will continue to have my son until he goes to school, I wouldn’t have it any other way! Xx thank you jennie! Xx

Jennie has been minding my 2 year old daughter since she was 10 months old and she has really thrived in Jennie’s care. Jennie’s home is very welcoming and Isla is always so excited to go to Jennie’s house.
Jennie is very patient and gives me lots of help and advice when dealing with my daughters temper tantrums. Isla is not labelled as ‘naughty’ toddler and Jennie helps her to find ways to deal with her emotions.
Jennie always takes the children on wonderful adventures, no two days are the same. Isla loves the fun days out and day at home baking and arts & crafts.
I feel calm and confident leaving my daughter in Jennie’s care, she made returning to work so much easier knowing that she is being well looked after, nurtured and loved. I can not recommend Jennie highly enough, she offers above and beyond my expectations, she’s wonderful!
