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.
Our little girl Erin absolutely loves going to Gemma. Great facilities, hugely experienced, highly organised; Gemma is totally reliable and continuously strives to improve. The variety of activities for children are excellent with the cabin, outdoor and adventure visits. Would highly recommend her!
Gemma is a fantastic childminder. She has been looking after our son for over a year. When we first met her, we knew instantly that she was the right childminder for us. She has a lovely, calm setting in a purpose built cabin , which is very clean, safe and has a range of toys. Also the garden is very spacious, with a good selection of outdoor toys.
Our son loves spending time with Gemma and playing with the other children. He has thrieved in Gemma's care. We couldn't be happier with the progress he has made and how happy he is. We always felt confident that he was safe and well cared for when we were at work. Gemma records each child's development and activities throughout their time there and they are shared with us. We also recieve regular photos of our son's activities and outings.
Gemma is a lovely, calm, caring person and she has been very flexible and accommodating for us.
We trust Gemma completely and we would recommend her highly.

Thank you for your lovely review it’s been a pleasure looking after him x
When we unexpectedly had to find childcare for our son last year we didn’t know where to start or what to look for, so found a few childminders to go and visit. As soon as we walked in Gemma’s we instantly knew she was the childminder we were looking for. Her home was clean and tidy, she took us to a purpose built cabin where she spends her day with the children which was equally as clean and designed with the safety of the children in mind. Gemma went through all her documentation, daily routines and childs journal and so we barely had to ask a question as she covered everything we needed to know.
Our son is extremely happy and settled and this can be seen in the pictures we are sent of him on his daily outings. We’d highly recommend Gemma to anyone!
