I really would recommend gemma, I have had my two children in with her since my youngest was just months old, she took both my children on together and she always goes that extra mile with them! It's so hard to find a childminder who you can truly trust with babies so young but the connection between her and my children were amazing! There always busy doing something and always happy when I collect them! She has been so flexible for me! Couldn't ask for a better service x

We would Highly recommend Gemma's child care services. We were very lucky to have found Gemma when we needed a childminder to look after our two girls when returning to work after maternity leave.

The outstanding ofsted rating was the initial attraction but after meeting Gemma and then once Gemma started caring for our girls we could not have asked for a more home from home, nurturing environment.

Gemma not only provided a caring and fun packed environment where our girls were developing and learning new things, but Gemma also became a great support to us too.

Her girls are just lovely too and my girls are missing them all. We moved house recently to a new town and have unfortunately had to change our child care arrangements due to logistics.

Gemma has looked after my son, Rhys, since he was 6 months old. He's now 4 and started school, so is no longer with Gemma full-time, just in school holidays. Gemma provided a safe and secure environment for Rhys and he settled in very well. She is a natural when it comes to looking after children and Rhys enjoyed every day he spent with her and her two daughters (whom he misses very much!). Gemma did lots of activities with Rhys, either indoors creating works of art, out in the garden playing with sand, or somewhere away from home. Gemma likes to get the children out and about as much as possible and they would go to the park a lot and also to Monkey Business (one of Rhys's favourites!). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gemma, I was very lucky to find such a fantastic person to look after my child!
