Here are a selection of some of the letters from parents that I have received over the years I have been childminding. For obvious reasons all names and addresses are left out but all the other information is in their exact words, these letters can be seen in my portfolio.


My son, Kieran, has been going to Jane since he was about 8 months old. He has always been extremely happy there and always keen to go in a morning. He is now 3 years old and often makes cakes at home to take for Janey and Andy Pandy. The whole family are like his other family to him and he regularly talks about them, e.g., he sees a dog like Bertie or 'Anthony works there', and not forgetting Big Bad Dave.

I have always felt more than happy leaving Kieran with Jane and have never felt guilty, worried or concerned about leaving him in Jane's more than capable hands.

He has learnt a lot in all the time he has spent there:- manners, potty training, discipline, eating meals (which has always been a problem at home), making things, counting and most of all respect, loving and caring for other people.

Jane and her family are a pleasure to know and all do an extremely good job. I would never hesitate in recommending Jane's Juniors to anyone.

Mandy (Kieran's Mummy)


Jane has looked after our daughter Kimberley for the past 22 months, since she was just 5 months old and we can not thank Jane enough for what she has done for Kim. If we ever need anyone to look after Kim again we will not hesitate in asking Jane and we would recommend Jane to anybody who needs a childminder (this parent came back 2 months later)


Richard my youngest son has been with Jane for over a year now and due to my husband been made redundant I have had to take Richard out of Jane's care. This is a note to say what a wonderful time Richard has had all the time he has been in Jane's care playing with her toys, painting, colouring, drawing and making things. Every day he would bring something home, kites, faces, wonderful mother and father's day cards and presents, he settled in very well and was always asking when he was going next, this you can only give credit to Jane and her family for their interest in all of the children. If time alters our family situation I would go back to Jane again for my child care, I need look no further - and would not - She is the best - Many thanks for all you have done.


Jane has looked after both my children at different times over the years, since 1995-1998 (inc.) she is very good with children. I would recommend her to anyone who is seeking a good childminder.


To Jane
Thank you for looking after Danielle, so well, over the years. You have played such an important role in her life. She will never forget her good experiences with you.
All our love.


To Jane
Thank you for looking after me
lots of love Alice.


Dear Jane you have looked after Abbigail and Lauren for the last 2 and a half years and I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful job that you have done. Up to the time that Abbi left to go to school she really enjoyed coming to your house and learnt a lot of pre-school activities, such as numbers and letters. Lauren has come on in leaps and bounds, she was only 6 months old when you first started to look after her and she is now 3. She loves playing with the other children and has learnt a great deal through the varied activities that you spend time doing. She loves painting and making things and especially when you go to the swings or shops. I am sorry that Abbi and Lauren can no longer come to you, but if I ever need a childminder in the future you will be my FIRST CHOICE because you provide an outstanding service. Thank you very much for all your hard work and help.
Love and Best wishes.

Just a note to thank you for all you have done for Kieran. It doesn't seem 5 minutes since he first came to you 3 years ago. He has learnt such a lot from you-good manners, respect and love to name a few. He has benefited from a very homely, family environment with you all and I'm sure he'll miss you all very much and talk about you for a long time to come.

You have been a tremendous help and influence to him in his first few years and have encouraged him all the way in his learning, potty training and all his other new and various challenges.

I cannot thank you and your family enough for all you have done. I certainly wouldn't think twice about bringing a second child to you. I would always recommend you to anyone looking for a childminder.

Once again, thanks for everything. I hope we can keep in touch

Wishing you and your family all the very best in everything you do

Love
