About Me

My name is Jacqueline fry. I am an ofsted registered good childminder I help and encourage children to reach their potential in all areas of their development at their own pace, . I offer a professional but friendly service which wile reliable is flexible. I provide a warm, caring safe and stimulated environment .I help and encourage all children in my care to meet the individual needs. , whilst also offering a support and advice to parents.

I was a nanny and a mothers help after leaving school, and became a registered childminder in 1998. I have done extensive training inc first aid to keep up to date with current requirements, I have an NVQ level 3 in early years and have completed my diploma home based childcare witch is at level 3 as well.
In 2006 I became an approved Network childminder and a support childminder.
I have now been working with children for over 30 years .I have 3 grown up children of my own and 6 grandchildren
My personal goal is the children in my care are happy well stimulated and enjoy the time they spend with me so they can go home happy to tell mum or dad what they have done that day and they are happy to come to me every day. I help each individual child to reach their their own level of independence and confidence as well as discover their own strengths academically and socially so they can go on and be happy and inquisitive at school. Each child is treated as individual and is cared for and taught in a homely way like mum would at home at their own development rate in a way that is both educational but fun and that they have an interest in.
During term time we visit several playgroups children centres , Music and movement classes .we
Visit several soft play areas enabling the children to socialise with other children and learn to build friendships. At home not only do we do activities like cooking and educational games.I have toys for every age and stage.The children also take part in everyday life ie going to the supermarket and the bank ect . In the school holidays as I drive and have an mpv car we go further a field.
Ie crystal palace park, Godstone and Horton farms, larger soft ball play centres and in the summer months I try to spend as much time outsides as I can. we visit Parks, paddling pool parks and coastal resorts like Bognor Regis, Little Hampton , we also visit museums and other places of interest in London and the sounding area.
I have a very large range of toys and games suitable for all ages indoors and for the garden

In 2020 we up graded the garden to artificial grass so children have access to the garden all year round. I provide good quality care for all the children I care for. Individual observations are kept on all children in early years foundation stage giving their general development till they are in year one at school. This tells parents and their teachers how your child is generally progressing plus keeping good commutations open to all involved with your child. I will all ways make time to talk to any parent any time Or you can make an appointment with me if that is better to discussed your child . I am also using what app to all my parents as a way to pass on information about the children's day and pass on photos of their child this is only available to parents own what app so it private i also am using a grope WhatsApp for all parents so I can pass on information or like what we are doing that day or were we are going and so parents can pass on ideas and information of their own and get to know each other .I am in easy reach by bus or train for Streatham, Battersea, Brixton, Morden, Corydon, New Malden and Kingston Sutton and Epsom. I live close to Streatham common train station, East field station with links and central London and sounding areas

I honestly couldn’t recommend Jackie more! She has been my daughters childminder for the best part of two years and has helped shape her into the best little lady she can be. She is kind, caring and passionate about what she does. She isn’t just a childminder to my daughter she is family to us all and we couldn’t love her anymore than we already do. She has bent over backwards for our family and we are so grateful we found someone so amazing to watch our little girl.

Jackie is a warm and caring person who puts so much of her heart into raising the children in her care. She took my daughter part-time from the age of 16 months and my daughter has blossomed from a shy, unsure, child into a bold and confident little girl. Right from the start Jackie made sure that we had a gradual settle and put my daughter first even suggesting we change days so that she could attend a singing group because my daughter loves music so much. When we had a development assessment that wasn't great Jackie reassured me and made sure I was feeling OK as well as giving me solid advice about what to do with my daughter.
Jackie has also been wonderful with my eldest who she has after school and for holidays.
It breaks my heart to be leaving and if we could take Jackie with us to our new home we would in a heartbeat, she's the family member we didn't know was missing and will be impossible to replace. I hope we stay in touch long into the future and she can see our girls grow into young women.

Jackie was childminder to our daughter for over 2 years. We couldn't have chosen a better person to look after our daughter!
Jackie is loving, caring, honest and down to earth. There is nothing she doesnt know about kids and sets your mind at ease every step of the way! Our daughter is nearly 7 and still talks about 'nanny Jackie' all the time!!!
I couldn't recommend a better Childminder!

Jackie is friendly, caring and provides a fun nurturing environment. She has 20 years experience and has outstanding ofsted rating. Jackie is clearly a wonderful child minder. The only issue for us (as dad a teacher) is holiday taken not during term time, but for many that would not be an issue. Have put 5 stars for food even though we haven’t sampled because Jackie talked about freshly prepared food and was open to menu suggestions accommodated requests for vegetarian and clearly was very aware of allergies etc. We enjoyed meeting Jackie and would highly recommend a visit if you are looking for a loving childminder.
