My name is Jan and I live in Horsforth, Leeds. I chose to become a childminder as I have thoroughly enjoyed being at home with my own two children and would like to offer the same warm, safe and secure family environment for others. After juggling childcare and work for the last 10 years, I know how important it is to find excellent childcare that you can trust. I am Ofsted Registered, DRB checked and have recently completed a paediatric first aid course. Our home is child friendly, smoke free and has no pets. Inside, we have a play room full of toys for all ages for indoor play, a large kitchen with plenty of space for high chairs for snacks and meals, and we use the living room for story time and chilling. Outside, we have a large, enclosed garden with lots of outdoor toys and a playhouse. We are a short walk from Horsforth Hall Park, and our walk and from to school usually involves calling in for a play on the swings and slides on the way home! Our house just off the A65 and Leeds Ring Road, providing a very easy drop off when commuting into Leeds from Rawdon, Guiseley, Ilkely or further afield.
