General Details

Quality Assured Network Childminder

I have been a childminder for 19 years. I offer a friendly, reliable, home-based childcare service. I have significant childcare experience having brought up three children of my own and working with other children for the last 19 years.

I have developed my provision enabling me to offer free grant funded sessions. This has included completing an NVQ Level 3 in Childcare and Development, Suffolk Accredited SENCO training, a Certificate in Paediatric First Aid, Food Hygiene, Safeguarding Children and the Suffolk Quality assurance scheme.

My Ofsted grade is good with outstanding in children's personal development, behaviour and welfare.

The children have access to a large play area with a wide range of toys, books and activities. There is also have a large enclosed garden fully equipped with ride on toys, play equipment, sand and water play and  a play house. Outdoor activities include nature walks, visits to parks and the forest, outing to the coast, farm and zoos.

We regularly meet with other childcarers and toddler groups to develop confidence and social interaction with other children.

References are available from parents.

I aim to be friendly, approachable and reliable, looking after your child in the same way I would like my child to be looked after.

Jane Caulfield
I've used Jane to care for my children for the past 10 years, the eldest starting when she was just 6 months of age. Jane is incredibly reliable & with myself & my husband both working full time this has been imperative! Jane understands individual family values/beliefs & ensures that manners & behaviour are an important part of the children's everyday learning. The activities the children take part in are education but fun & children thrive under her care.
Review of Jane Caulfield
Jane has looked after our 2 year old from 10 months and we could not be happier with the quality of childcare provision. Our daughter loves going to Jane's and is provided with a calm, loving environment in which to flourish. Jane has ensured our daughter's needs have been met and it feels like a home away from home. On a practical level, Jane could not be more accommodating if we need to adjust the times or dates our daughter goes to her. We feel very lucky to have her.
Fantastic childcare
Jane has been looking after my youngest for nearly three years now and I could not be more happy with the service that she provides. She was recommended to me by a friend whose three children were all looked after by Jane and she is exactly what we were looking for in a childminder. She is very kind and my son adores her - I know that if he fell over she would scoop him up in a big hug. She also has endless ideas of things to do with the children and my son is always coming home with very impressive crafts (that we could never manage at home). Also, particularly important for me is that she takes the children out a lot, to the park, to different toddler groups, to other childminders, to a singing group and so on. The environment is also great as she has a very large garden with masses of toys (including plenty of ride on ones), and a large kitchen and playroom so there is loads of space. All in all, she's great and highly recommended.
The most wonderful childcare environment and fantastic value for money
Jane has spent the past four years looking after our third child. I wish I had known Jane for my older 2 children as I wouldn't have hesitated in her having them all! Jane provides a wonderful homely, safe and happy environment for her children. She is flexible, excellent value for money, and most importantly our son is always happy to go and has made strong bonds with the other children. They have a great balance of going out and about and do a wide range of home based activities. I couldn't recommend Jane Caulfield higher and am happy to be contacted as a reference.
