Hello, my name is Emma Cooper and I am a Qualified Childminder based in Abbots Langley, registered with PACEY (Professional Assosciation for Childcare & Early Years) & OFSTED. I live with my husband whom is a secondary school teacher and our 2 daughters, we also have a pet dog called Buster whom is a very friendly pug/spaniel breed. Everyone in my household has undergone a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service) as required by Ofsted. I have been graded as "OUTSTANDING” in my last Ofsted Inspection in December 2017.

We live in a 4 bedroom detached house with a garden and is ideally located for easy access to the local park, toddler groups, schools, library and additional children's services in the community.

Whilst on maternity leave with the birth of my first daughter, I decided on a change of career and trained to become a Childminder, so I could bring up my daughter in her early years as well as others which has been very rewarding. I have completed the CYPOP5 Level 3 Cache Childminding course and then went on to complete the Full Level 3 Cache Qualification in Childcare. I am fully Qualified in Paediatric First Aid, which is refreshed every 3 years. I became registered with Ofsted in June 2013 and began Childminding in September 2013.

Little Flowers Childminding provides childcare for children following the Early Years Foundation Stage National Curriculum.

As a childminder I understand that all children are unique and have different personalities, needs, interests and abilities. All children in my care are treated as individuals and are valued and respected for who they are. The setting is inclusive and one where everyone is welcome.

We love getting involved in some messy play & arts & crafts time where the children take their art work home for parents.

I believe in working closely with parents as they are the most powerful and influential people in their child's life. It is important therefore that we work closely together to share information effectively and establish a positive working relationship that will assist your child's learning and development. I try my best to stick to any routines which parents have put in place so the child feels safe and secure.

My Experience

8 Years experience working as a childminder working with an age range of Newborn-7 years. Children whom I have looked after since 9 months of age are still within my care and now attend the setting before and after school.

Emma is a brilliant childminder, she is very very diligent and cares a lot for our little girl’s well-being while she is in her care. My baby is always happy to go there and is happy and relaxed at the pick ups too. Emma engages her in various indoors and outdoors activities some of which we have not yet done at home together like painting, colouring and playing with different textures. She communicates with us frequently during the day to tell us how she is doing, letting us know what first words she has said.My husband and I are both very happy knowing that our baby is in such good and capable hands. I could not recommend Emma more!

I cannot recommend Emma enough, as a particularly anxious mother I found going back to work very hard but Emma was wonderful. My son settled really well with Emma straight away, she is so calm and welcoming and he’s loved all the fun and exciting activities. He loves going to Emma’s and never wants to come home at the end of the day. Emma is great at sending me updates and I know he’s in a safe nurturing home. Tommy son has thrived in Emma’s care. Emma’s home is lovely, clean and friendly. We cannot thank you enough for looking after our boy.

Our son has been looked after by LittleFlowers full time since he was 8 months old. Emma is fantastic; our son loves being with her, the level of care she provides means we have peace of mind and can relax and focus on the working day knowing he is safe and happy. Emma is very knowledgable about the needs of the parents as well as the children; she provides me with texts and photos during the day which I find very helpful and help to include me in his day. We also get a daily report which enables us to reinforce activities and skills at home. They get outside most days for a trip to the park, walk to the shops or library visit. Emma really understands what makes our son tick and provides activities, games and toys that ensure he is stimulated and engaged.
Words cannot really express how truly grateful we are to Emma and LittleFlowers; she has made going back to work that bit easier knowing our son is being looked after so perfectly.

I would highly recommend Emma and LittleFlowers to anyone seeking a childminder in the area.

Emma has been looking after my 15 month old since he was 9 months and it's been such a relief knowing how happy and settled he is there. Emma takes great care not only in seeing to his day to day needs but also in developing his physical and emotional skills.

I would highly recommend Emma as a childminder as she is extremely caring, professional, trustworthy and keen to develop the skills of the children in her care by creating a range of different activities and outings. Emma also keeps me informed of my son's progress through photos, videos and a daily diary which I find really thoughtful and gets me through the working day!
