Our little boy attended Gemmas for a year and he thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Gemmas was his first childcare experience and beginning after months in lockdown was daunting for him and us, however Gemma and the team were very supportive throughout his transition and he quickly settled in to what felt like a 'home from home'. We loved that Gemma arranged activities and classes each week and our little boy loved the music class! The environment was always spotless and we were kept up to date each day with photos on the private FB page of what the kids were up to! We loved that Gemma would often take the kids to local parks and trips further afield like the aquarium and airport visitors centre. There was also lots of opportunity for outdoor time in the garden with her cabin set up.
We would highly recommend Gemma and will be sad for out little one to leave which is only due to me being on maternity leave.

Gemma and her assistants are just incredible. Our 2 years old daughter started in September 2020 after the lockdown was lifted and we were impressed from the beginning. Gemma and her assistants were friendly, supportive and loving towards my daughter. She learned french, made friends and was even potty trained.
The environment is spotless and the meals are brilliant too. Gemma always kept us to date on our daughters health if she was poorly and even provided a little scrapbook to see what she’s been up to. Gemma even offered us extra days when we needed due to change in circumstances.
Our daughter loves it there & will be sad to leave due to starting pre-school.
All we can say is thank you so much for all you do.

Our little girl was with Gemma for about 18 months and she loved every minute she was there. Gemma provides a stimulating environment with weekly visitors who ran different classes for the children. There were lots of sensory activities and the food was varied and home cooked. Our little girl loved going every morning which shows how much care and love was given to her during the day. We would recommend Gemma to anyone looking for a child minder for their little one.

My little boy started with Gemma last summer when he was 2 and a half. He is non verbal and hadn't been left with anyone before then so we were quite worried about how he would manage. He has definitely thrived under Gemma's care and is now more sociable and confident. Gemma has an amazing setup with the cabin in her garden it's like a mini nursery. She does so many activities with the children and also takes them out on little trips. Parents are kept updated through a private Facebook group and it's always lovely to see pictures during the day and see what they're upto. I would 100% recommend Gemma to any parent and we are very glad she had space when we were looking for childcare for Henry.

Gemma has been looking after our son since October and we couldn't be happier. When we first met Gemma we almost instantly knew she would be perfect for our needs and this has proved to be the case. She is really caring, calm and our son loves his time with Gemma and the other children. Gemma does loads of different activities with the children which are creative and fun. Our son's progress has been excellent. Gemma has a purpose built cabin which is really clean and tidy, with loads of toys and activities for the children. She provides a good variety of healthy food for the children too. We have never had any problems and completely trust Gemma with our son in her care.
