I'm Jo, and I am so happy that you're here. Thank you for visiting, it's amazing to have you!
I launched Freckles in 2015 because I absolutely love families, family life and want to provide a childcare service which both children and parents love. At Freckles our goal is to enable parents to spend more quality time with their children when they get home.
The working world is changing and childcare needs to change too, and so we don't believe in prescriptive childcare. We believe in you giving families what they need. Flexible childcare is essential for modern families and that’s why with Freckles the service is completely tailored and personalised to each and every family.
Permanent or temporary, full time or part time, ad-hoc or emergency. Whatever you need, just ask.
As a result of working with families since 2009, I'm incredibly passionate about developing emotionally secure children and want to ensure that all of our Kaya Nannies feel confident in supporting children both emotionally and physically. We developed an Emotional Health training course with Child Psychologist, Dr Maryhan, that is compulsory for all of our Kaya Nannies. The course covers anxiety, attachment, confidence and self-esteem and that Kaya Nannies have ongoing access to Dr Maryhan.
Right now I am just so pleased, excited and honoured that you're here reading this - and if there is anything I can do for you then you can email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're looking for an exciting new adventure working with children, you're considering moving into the childcare industry or you just want to see what your options are then I hope Freckles leaves you feeling super inspired! You can find out lots more about being a Kaya Nanny here →
If you're a client then I hope you realise how much I personally care about your children. I'm often asked if I have children. Biologically the answer is no, but actually the answer is yes. All the children I've personally looked after over the years, but also all the children that our Kaya Nannies look after. I'm so insanely passionate about providing them, your children, with the best care; physically and emotionally. When you join Freckles you don't just get a 'nanny' you get a Kaya Nanny and everything that comes with being part of the Freckles Family.
A few more things about me…
I'm a massive people person, I'm terrible at being on my own, I'm completely animal mad and I'm a teeny bit bonkers (but we’re all a little bit)!
I live just outside of Bath with the first family I ever worked for (crazy hey?), I sing (out of tune) a lot, I love messing around with Dodo (my hilarious Cocker Spaniel), I adore seeing my friends and family and I just love life (well most of the time - but some days it's super hard, I get stressed, I cry, but then tend to get over it!)!
I am so passionate about Freckles, our Kaya Nannies, our Families and our Children. Together we make an unstoppable force of love, commitment and service and I'm so excited for everything that's coming.
So thank you, for popping in to say hi and I really hope you'll join me for the adventure!
