Gem has been amazing looking after my son, he really enjoys being there and loves all the activities. The french class and music are his favourite as well as trips to the park. The play area and facilities are beautifully clean and kept in perfect order. The kids have lovely fresh meals and snacks made everyday. Gem is very organised and has the kids records in neat files and all up to date. Gem is also very friendly and easy to work with. I would really recommend her as a childcare provider.

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.

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!

Thank you for your lovely review

My daughter has been going to Gemma for almost a year now and she really enjoys her time there, she loves spending time with Gemma and the other children. Gemma has a brilliant setting in a purpose built cabin and a spacious garden. Gemma provides great activities such as trips to local parks and play areas, as well as structured play in her home setting. I like how my daughter’s day is documented in her own handbook. Gemma is a very kind, caring and patient person which definitely helps to instil confidence when choosing the perfect childminder. Gemma is also very flexible and has accommodated my daughter on additional days when my circumstances have changed, which I am really grateful for. Gemma is an excellent childminder and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
