Janice Redfern was my son′s childminder for nearly two years and during that time provided a very high standard of professional childcare within a happy and loving home – ″Anna″

I have always regarded Janice as a trustworthy and responsible person who obviously loves children.  Although she has a big family of her own, I feel she treats the children in her care, as part of that family – “Gill”

Janice′s home had a pleasant family atmosphere which my son enjoyed along with all her children.  I was impressed by the way she kept track of all the children, controlled them and handed out impartial punishment when necessary.  She has the proper balance between comforting and discipline – “Audrey”

Janice′s ability to care for children under the age of eight is, I consider, one of great experience and is most acceptable.  To do this alongside her own family of 5 children is    exceptional.  She is a kind, considerate, caring person and has a vast understanding of children of all ages – “Philippa” 


We can thoroughly recommend Jan for whatever task you need undertaken.  She is honest and reliable.  She helps us with domestic tasks but can also help in the garden and all her work is thorough.  Jan offered to walk our dog when we couldn′t get out.  The dog loves her and was happy staying with Jan′s family when we went away – “Marion & Dorothy”

My wife and I originally took Jan on to sit with our dog and then continued with her carrying out domestic duties.  Jan is honest, reliable and willing to do anything you require of her.  You will also find she is very pleasant to have in your home and I can thoroughly recommend her –  “Peter & Avis”

I required a small amount of assistance when my husband became ill and a District Nurse recommended Jan to me.  She is always punctual and has a very cheerful and friendly manner.  I have found her to be completely trustworthy, undertaking a wide range of domestic jobs very satisfactorily.  “Margaret”

Specialist support needs

Jan′s work is very satisfactory and she is always obliging.  Easy to get on with and able to cope with my husband, who has dementia. She does my shopping and uses the Post Office services.   She is trustworthy too – “May”

Pet services

Jan has walked my dogs weekly for several years.  I have two and she has coped with their separate needs very well.  The dogs love her.  I have no hesitation in recommending her, as she has a natural affinity with animals in general, dogs in particular – “Jo”

Jan has been walking my dog for a couple of years and I can confirm that she is kind and caring towards him.  He is now an elderly dog but still enjoys a gentle walk and Jan always ensures he rests when needed but allowing him to socialise with other canine pals when out.  Jan is reliable and very hardworking as she also helps me with domestic chores.  I can recommend her highly – “Stella”

Meals and cooking in home

My husband and I are both in our late nineties and find Jan always pleasant and willing. She prepares and cooks our meal for us five days a week as well as carrying out domestic duties and takes an interest in whatever job she does.  I have every confidence in her integrity – “Phoebe”

Just a note to thank you very much for preparing lunch for Mum and I this Saturday – it was very tasty and I will be back again – “Michael”
