My name is Jo, My husband and I have a 16 year old daughter. I have been with JeMMa’s for the past 15 years and am still full of enthusiasm and passion for caring for children in my own home.
I first started as an Educarer as I wanted to be at home with my daughter. I have worked as a nanny and a house parent in children’s home on my OE and I knew back then that I wanted to continue working with younger children.
I offer a warm, safe, family environment where children can grow, thrive and learn on a one-to-one basis but also in a close knit group.
