About Me

Registered Childminder’s working together with over 19 years experience of working with children either within a home setting or a nursery. Gemma is EYFS level 3 qualified with city and guilds and also teaching assistant level 2 qualified. Lisa is qualified EYFS level 3 Cache. Gemma has 3 children aged 5,8 and 10.
She has 2 extremely friendly dogs who adore children, they have their own run in the garden so are kept separate from the children. No one in the household smokes. Gemma has her home set up for all sorts of activities and have a vast range of age related toys which will be expanded on as the business expands. There is a large garden in which the children will have access to at all times. We actively get involved with the children we care for. The children are taken out on numerous trips during the holidays such as the cinemas, museums, parks, zoo s etc. We both strongly feel that children should be bought up in a safe, fun and loving home environment and strive to achieve this at my home.

My Experience
