About Me

Hello my name is Jane and I am a fully qualified early years teacher as well as an OFSTED registered childminder. I am lively and outgoing and love to spend time outdoors, doing craft and in the kitchen. We run a family business with my husband being my full time assistant. Having two people gives an extra stability and security to the setting and the children's experience. We pick up and drop off at Trinity Road Primary and Chancellor Park Infants and Juniors. We also pick up and drop off at Springboard Nursery. We both love spending time with, and looking after children, watching them grow through stimulating and lively play.

My Experience

I have 20 years childcare experience. I have two older school age children of my own, and therefore understand the joys and trials of parenting. Before childminding I have looked after children most of my adult life. I have nannyed newborn babies, toddlers and school age children. In my time as a childminder I have cared for all age groups. I am a great problem solver and can offer lots of helpful advice. We can offer a bespoke service for your child, including home-made baby food. I also have some experience working with speciel needs.

My Qualifications

I have several relevant child care qualifications including CYPOP5, several Safeguarding qualifications, integrated working, pediatric first aid, Epilepsy Awareness, epipen, EYFS, Food Hygiene and various Scouting qualifications. My husband holds a current CRB certificate, a working with parents qualification, safeguarding and food hygiene qualifications and a full pediatric first aid certificate, he is registered with Ofsted as my assistant.

We are open from 7am till 7pm Monday to Friday and offer term time only contracts if needed.

I have been using this family orientated child minder for 3 years now. My son was 2 years old when he first went to Jane. My initial thoughts about her initial business with the way she deals with the children were fantastic and she continues to amaze me with the fun and educational activities she provides for the children. They have an allotment the children go to regularly to feed their chickens and collect fresh eggs.
She cooks 3 fresh meals a day meals a day and promotes healthy eating with the children. The journey my son has had with Jane Saunders so far has been brilliant. He has learnt so much and continues to learn now as she picks my child up from school. I recommend her highly and would happily speak to prospective parents about her child care business.
I cannot thank her enough for providing a safe and fun environment for my little boy.
Jane has helped me get my son to hit the targets he should be for his age.
I thoroughly recommend her and will continue sending my child to her until my sons of an age where he no longer needs supervision before and after school.

Jane often cares for my daughter Libby when she's not at school.
she thoroughly enjoys her time spent with jane and gets vey excited when she knows she's going to her home.

Jane plays educational games with Libby and also encourages imaginative play,with the dress up box being one of Libby's favourite things!

I would highly recommend Jane,she provides excellent care for my daughter and gives me peace of mind that on the days Libby isn't at school she is still having a stimulating and active day.
