And here’s my recommendation for you:
Justine has been supportive, helpful and kind in providing outstanding childcare for Ruby and Charlie. This is the second time Justine has looked after the children; this time for 5 days a week. Building on from my previous reference (attached), Ruby and Charlie settled into Justine’s care quickly and with ease due to Justine taking extra time to understand how they had changed during their time away from her. She visited us one evening and reacquainted herself with us all so it felt very natural and easy when we dropped the kids off with her.
Justine is set apart from other childcare providers that we have used because she supports the children’s development. Charlie moved from seated toileting, where he wanted to remove underwear, to standing up and so became more confident at going to the bathroom on his own. We received a termly report for Charlie, charting his development achievements and goals and were impressed by the letter and number recognition that Justine had been working with him on.
Justine provided flexible childcare so that Ruby could continue to attend after school clubs and activities. Justine kept us informed of any changes or updates related to school, pre-school or clubs, for example, letting us know when the photographer was attending pre-school.
I thoroughly recommend Justine as a childminder. She provides a safe, secure and friendly environment where children have fun and thrive developmentally. Her attitude to working with children is as a teaching professional, yet she enhances this with her fun and friendly personality, making time spent with her interesting, enjoyable and exciting through varied activities.
Thank you Justine
I like it at Justine’s house because we can choose the toys we want to play with. All the toys are stored in boxes with labels and if you can’t read the labels, there are pictures of the toys. I enjoyed going for walks in the wood and having hot chocolate.

we were really taken with you and your approach to caring for children. We know that you have both the passion, enthusiasm, love and knowledge ……I would not hesitate in recommending you to friends (and have done)

Justine is highly qualified as a childminder with a degree in Early Years Learning and two Outstanding Ofsted gradings, which are well deserved. She is professional in the way she runs her business with thorough yet fully accessible policies.
Justine restored our trust in good, honest and affordable childcare. Her professionalism and experience set her far apart from other child care providers we have used – I would absolutely recommend her as a great and reliable childminder.

I have been fortunate enough to have Justine as my daughter’s child-minder for the past two years now. My daughter absolutely loves going to Justine’s everyday whilst I continue with my education. When My daughter sees Justine, her whole face lights up. This is reassuring for me to know that my child is left in a happy and safe environment with a trustworthy child-minder.
Justine had my 14 year old who is autistic, my daughter settled quickly thanks to Justine’s kind nature and brilliant attitude towards young people.

We would like to thank you for providing care for our children. They have both thoroughly enjoyed their time with you and your family..and Chewie 🙂
We appreciate the fun and creative environment you have always provided them with, the ball balls were a lovely idea and currently taking pride of place on our tree.

Our daughter got on very well with their pet beagle dog- Chewie. She named her toy dog Chewie and takes it everywhere including outdoors and to cuddle in bed. one of her first words was “Chewie” then transformed to doggy recently.
A safe and happy stimulating environment ….. our daughter always came back extremely happy and chatty.

We chose childminding over a nursery because we wanted our son to feel comfortable in a homely environment where there wouldn’t be an overwhelming number of children. This was absolutely the case as Justine’s house, where our son enjoyed the routine of a family day with older children attending school and other activities geared around pre-school children.
Nicola & Stuart (2013)
They have grown so much, both physically and mentally, in being in such a great setting. Your care for them is everything we wanted, and more and I know we’re all going to miss you – especially the girls and I’m sure we will be talking about you for a long time to come.
As the weeks have passed I have seen many developments in my son’s speech , character, mannerism, and behaviour. Justine is friendly, well organised, polite person who cares deeply and passionately about the children in her care.
I feel Justine plays a very important role in my sons life as he aways comes home a happy boy.
The most precious thing in my life is my daughter and I am thankful and grateful everyday that we have Justine. I have complete faith and trust in her and how she looks after my daughter. I cannot rate her highly enough.
As difficult as it is to leave your child with someone else, Justine always make every effort to make the transition as easy as possible my daughter and me by offering such a positive, stimulating and caring surroundings. There is no doubt that I was extremely lucky to find a childminder who takes such a professional approach to her work and has such a glowing Ofsted report.
Justine’s imagination and encouragement with healthy eating has helped our daughter become less fussy with foods and eating with other children has helped her to learn to feed herself.
We would definately recommend Justine to anyone requiring childcare, as it really is the best childcare facility we have seen and at a very reasonable price.
