About Me

My name is Emma and I am an Ofsted Registered Childminder. I have been childminding for over 6 years now and absolutely love it.

Previously my work background was always in human resources and payroll so office based.

I live with my partner David, 6 children Lauryn 18, Ellie 13, Robbie 11, Gracie 10, Maxwell 2 and Freddie 1 whom also enjoy spending time with the children I look after.

I provide friendly, supportive home from home, childcare in a positive environment enhancing each individual childs learning and development through play activities, experience and above all lots of fun and smiley faces.

We enjoy outdoor activities and lots of messy play. Also trips out for the day are proving to be a big hit. We like to grow flowers, herbs and have recently tried growing our own tomatoes.

I alao have a playroom in the garden which had been recently completed which we love and enjoy spending time in.

My Experience

I am a mother of 6 children which is the best experience I could have. I have also used childminders in the past so I know what is expected.

To compliment my experiences I have gained all the relevant training and qualifications for childminding and have just completed my level 3 diploma in childcare.

I drop off and pick up from Leighton and Woodston primary school.

I would recommend Emma ross anyone looking for a perfect childminder. My son was with her for over 2 years and developed so incredibly well whilst in her care. He is such an outdoors boy and Emma made sure she did daily trips outdoors, ensuring she mixed in educational time with play time. He absolutely adores her whole family and her children were brilliant with him. The meals provided were well balanced and through a tough period of my sons picky eating habits, Emma really helped me to get him to eat difderent things. Due to my working hours I have had to place my son closer to home however I would send him back in a heartbeat if the situation changed! Couldn't recommend Emma high enough :-)

I would recommend Emma as a child-minder with confidence. My son is now at pre-school however I never had a worry in all the time that my children were with Emma and her family. I have used Emma for both of my children. Emma provides a clean and safe environment for the children and my children were always clean, tidy and happy on collection. Emma provides various activities for the children and trips out with returning to local places that a familiar to the children like Phoenix gym. Emma has kind nature and I always felt comfortable leaving the children with her if my sometimes (clingy) children where upset in the mornings at drop off time, they were quickly comforted and she distracted them if they were ever upset. Both of my children are fond of Emma and all of her family, they are all a lovely bunch :-) Communication was always brilliant and activities were always updated in a daily dairy so I could see what there day was like.

I started using Emma's childminding services when she first started and I would recommend her with 100% confidence. She is well Reliable and flexible and has been a great support to our family. Our son loves spending time with Emma and her family at their well kept home. Emma treats him like 1 of the family and he usually makes himself right at home round their house. He's always very content and happy when I pick him up after work.

Emma is well organised and professional and communication is brill infact she helps me to get organised and with school holiday dates, being a mum herself she knows when the children will be on there holidays. My son not long started pre-school and I don’t always know what to expect, not to mention me being terribly forgetful so she usually gives me little reminders of dates and things!!!

Emma's enthusiastic and always takes a keen interest in how Luca's doing, she introduced a communication diary for Luca to take to pre school which is great. This is good as Emma and his key worker can work together on Lucas learning and development to ensure they are being consistent in supporting Luca. This is in his school bag for me to read at the end of the day so I can see how his day has gone. I like to read about how he's doing and its also good if I forget to ask something.

As a new mum it was very nervous about leaving our son with someone but I felt 100% comfortable with leaving him Emma and trust that he is in great hands we are expecting again and when the dreaded time comes again where we have to leave our new addition with a childminder we will def be using Emma's childminding services. Excellent all round childminder, you would think she had been doing it for years.
