Benefits of our Childminding setting

There are a number of different reasons why parents choose a childminding setting over other various settings. We are able to offer more variety than any other childcare environment due to it being a home-based setting. We can offer a more personal care both with the children and their families, this is integrated with outings and specialised care tailored to your childrens needs.
We are commited to aiding your child's development through different aids involving play. We are trained to help and improve childrens physical, intellectual, emotional and educational needs. We are obligated to undertake various observations and assessments of the children in our care to determine which areas of development we should be aiming to help for each individual child, all of this enables us to plan our activities wisely in order to benefit all the needs of each and every child in our setting.

My Daughter has been with Gem & Jade for nearly two years now she loves going to them. They go above and beyond for her providing lots of activities throughout her day with regular updates on how she is doing in regards to her development she has come on massivley since being with them! There setting is lovely with lots of toys and a huge garden its like a mini nursery. They have also been very flexible to accommodate my shifts each week.

I highly recomend these lovely ladies, i knew within minutes of walking in on my visit that they were the right people to care for my daughter, she has now been there 3 years. Jade & gem are now like family to her she absolutly loves them & loves going & they love & care for all the children like there own. I go to work knowing my daughter is safe, happy, well fed, having loads of fun & learning new things, the progress she makes daily is amazing! the backgarden is like a miniature park with endless activities, avayah comes home everyday telling me about all the fun she's had & the new friends she makes.
They are fabulous childminders & really flexible with changing days & hours when needed.

Thank you for your lovely review x

Gemma and Jade are fantastic with my 2 year old son he has been with them since spring last year and he absolutely loves being with them. They take him to playgroup, read stories, have constructive learning and he loves the other children.
All parents are wary of who we let look after our children but I would certainly recommend Jade and Gemma.

I send my little girl to gem&jades and she loves it she gets everything she could possibly need from home cooked meals to outing to the park she gets to learn different things and is coming on leaps and bounds they also do activities with her that I don't get the time to do like hand prints made from salt dough which are brilliant keepsakes I think Gemma and jade are brilliant people and I'm so happy my little girl is with them she couldn't be in better hands and I have such a high level of trust with them so if your thinking of putting ur children with a childminder then this is the place to go thank u Gemma and jade for all u do with Ella xxxx
