About Me

My name is Emma Brooks and I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I live with my husband William who is also a registered assistant, our three children and cat Joey.

I am able to drop off and collect from Highwood Primary School & North Bushey Pre School.

I am more than happy to forward a welcome pack via email on request to explain my service in more depth. Please see my contact details.

My Experience

I have always been interested in a career in childcare so in 2013 I decided to train and become a childminder whilst on maternity leave with my youngest.

I am very confident and experienced in looking after children of all ages through not only having my own children but from previously working at Highwood primary school from 2008 - 2013. My job involved looking after children from 5-11 years throughout their lunch hour.

I have been childminding since November 2013 and have completed my Level 3 CYPW qualification.

I have been Ofsted inspected (Sep 2015) and received a grade of Outstanding.

Emma is a fantatsic childminder. Her attentive approach and caring nature left me confident that I would be leaving my Son with the right person while I returned to work after a year off on Mat leave. I felt anxious about the thought of leaving him someome while I worked but after getting to know Emma I felt much better and knew I was leaving my Son with someone I could trust.

She offered a fantastic settling process which started before my return to work. She got to know my Son through stay and play sessions. When the time come to return to work, he went from crying on drop off, to smiling at Emma within a couple of weeks. It worked out so well and I am so grateful to have found her. She is one amazing Childminder and a child's wellbeing is her top priority.

Emma looked after my daughter when our childminder was on maternity leave. We were delighted with her care and would have been happy for our daughter to continue on with Emma. Emma is a natural with children and provides a wide variety of stimulating activities. We enjoyed all of the arts and crafts at Christmas time.

She provides a happy, calm, supportive environment which really respects the child and encourages them to develop confidence. Emma supported us in providing a healthy diet, helping us set and work with our child's development goals and was very supportive when we started toilet training. Most of all I felt that she has a wonderful gentle way that encouraged emotional development along with all the other developmental goals.

She provided daily diaries, pictures and menus via babydays website, even printing it out for me when I had computer problems.

Nothing seemed to phase her and we have remained in contact. My daughter has formed strong friendships with Emma and her children. .

My little boy went to Little Brooks Childcare from 9months to 17months and the ONLY reason we left was because we moved well away from the area.
Emma brings a wonderful sense of calm to you little ones day and has an incredible array of learning material which to my little boy, was simply great fun and didn't seem at all like learning to him.
Emma provides wonderfully wholesome meals ( better than I even do!) and my favourite part, she will always support you in the goals you want to achieve for your little one .... One of mine was for him to have good manners which Emma definitely facilitated.

PLEASE see Emma as you'll be over the moom with the care your little one will receive - I just wish my little boy was still able to go there :( x
Thank you Emma! You're one in a million!! X
