I have been a childminder for 18 years and am a mum to my own 2 children ages 19 & 21years . I have experience in a pre-school prior to becoming a childminder .
I believe in learning through play and feel the children benefit more by seeing and feeling the world around them so we often take trips to sealife and collect shells also Weald park to pick up leaves that have fallen to make our collage along with Colchester zoo and local playgroups

Jane welcome my Liam ( 6 5 month baby) into her family house for the last year. Jane always provided stimulating activities , which regularly included art and crafts , social play with the other children and educational activities linked in to EYFS. He enjoyed day trips, picnic and outdoor activities.
Jane service is extremely reliable , never requiere time off without notice and always being upfront and honest about charges , invoices and notices period.
I no longer use Janes childminding because we are moving to Newcastle however I do not hesite in recommending her excellent services to anyone who would like their children to be looked after in caring , fun and professional environments.
Thank you xx

Thank for Laura & Alberto
I wish miss Liam so much and wish you all a lovely new life in Newcastle 😀
Jane has been carrying for our son for a couple of years now and it was honestly the best decision we could have made, for our boy. He loves his days with Jane and the friends he has made.
We can't wait for our youngest son to join them, when I go back to work. We know they will both be in very safe hands and have the most exciting, fun time. Thank you so much Jane!

Thank you Jane for everything.

Our daughter has been going to Jane since she was 10 months old and her time with Jane has been absolutely wonderful! Even though Jane looks after multiple children, she has a lovely way of building an individual bond with each child and they become part of her family. Jane’s children are a real credit to her and are great with the children too. Our daughter absolutely loves going to Jane’s and would count down the days till she saw her ‘Janey’ again. Jane has been a fantastic carer, she gives healthy meals and does a great job of stimulating the children through activities whether that’s at home, the local playgroup or even the sea life centre or children’s museum and I’m convinced our 4 year old is as articulate as she is because of these experiences. I love that Jane takes pictures throughout the day to update us on what activities they are doing. I have never had to worry about Anaiah whilst she’s been in Jane’s care - she has been extremely happy and that is really testament to the great care given by Jane. I would not hesitate to recommend Jane, she is the gold standard in childminding and you will not be disappointed!
I have known Jane for less than 1 year and I know that she is a very caring person. She has gone above and beyond to give a space to Alessia when I first contacted her. Since then Jane has made a home from home for Alessia. Under her care, Alessia has grown into a beautiful, caring and smart little girl. Everyone can see that she loves childminding and loves the children in her care; they become a part her family, no just children that she cares for a few hours per day.
She is caring, loving and understanding. Whenever I have needed advice about Alessia she was there to put my mind to ease every time; gave my precious advice about how to deal with a very energetic and strong minded little girl.
Every day is a new day and Jane finds new ways to make them exciting and different. Alessia is looking forward every morning to seeing “Janey Janey” and having a new adventure. My little girl loves singing, dancing and exercising – this is thanks to Jane – the care she gives her, the playgroups and activities she takes her to.
Offering healthy and nutritious meals, transformed our Alessia from a picky eater into a little girl interested in eating a larger variety of food.
Sending me daily pictures has made me feel at ease knowing that Alessia is having a good time and is very well looked after.
Jane has been a God sent to us and we will always be grateful for everything she did for Alessia and us.
