Wonderful caring and professional childminder


Jo is the most wonderful, caring and reliable childminder who has looked after both of our girls, and we are so sad to be saying goodbye to her now that both are at pre/school.

Jo provides a creative and nurturing play and learning environment in her home, with a dedicated indoor area and outside garden and play options. She is dedicated, organised and highly professional with great communication. We didn’t need the Ofsted report to know that she is more than outstanding, and we couldn’t have made a better decision for our family than to have Jo as part of it.

All of the policy’s are well communicated, and the use of the software Baby Days is really helpful to see daily photos, updates and milestones, as well as for administrative purposes such as food diaries or any medical/additional necessary communication, in addition to the everyday verbal and phone communication.

Jo would ensure to take the girls to a different park, the Horniman Museum, or a playgroup everyday unless the weather was particularly inclement. The food provided was healthy and tasty and was always eaten by my girls. The play opportunities were varied and seasonal and there was so many beautiful artworks or cards or crafts that came home to us that had been made with Jo.

We highly recommend Jo, and would be more than happy to be contacted to discuss further if that were helpful to prospective parents.
