Emmie is a dream! She's very warm and friendly, it's clear that Wilf adores her. She engages him well and has helped to develop him in an individualised way. Emmie nurtures his interests and I feel she is attentive to all his needs.
Her immaculate home inside and out has been furnished specifically as the perfect setting for children to play, learn and feel at home in a safe and loving environment.
They do plenty of things outdoors, learning about nature which is great for Wilf with his love of physical activity. He is frequently taken to fun and interesting places which makes him feel each day at Emmie's is an adventure.
She is worth her weight in gold, we're very sad to be leaving her. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to any family seeking childcare.

What lovely kind words, thank you for taking the time to write this- it means the world!
I’ll certainly miss your happy, funny and kind boy ☺️
Emmie looked after my son for around 18 months and she did this with a huge amount of passion and care. Emmie always made me feel she had my sons best interests at heart and she welcomed him into her home like it was his own. She helped hugely with his development and was always very honest about good points and development points and was very knowledgeable about groups and classes.
Emmie was amazing at preparing a varied and healthy diet and this was so important to me.
I feel my sons development skills socially and with interactive play were hugely improved on whilst in Emmie’s care.
Emmie also expands the children’s knowledge on calendar events and celebrates each one with some fun interactive days out or in :)
Emmie is fun friendly and full of experience and knowledge. I’d recommend her over and over again without a second thought!
Thanks Emmie and good luck in your new role and home x

Ah thanks Willow, he’s really missed, it’s been my pleasure to watch him grow and develop 😊
My son has been with Emmie for a year now and I would highly recommend her to anyone!
My son was 9 months old when he started with Emmie, and he has loved every day there.
She has a great balance of fun and educational activities, and is always out and about with the children.
The smile on my little ones face when he turns up says it all :)

Thank you Sharlie, such a happy boy thanks to his happy parents, always a pleasure 😊
Emmie really and truly is everything I hoped I'd find in a childminder when I started my search for childcare when my son was 9 months old she put me and my son at ease immediately and I just knew from the moment I walked in the door that this was the place that would be a home from home. My son spent just under 4 years with Emmie full time and since then (he is almost 6) he has been staying during school holidays too and still loves it just as much. She creates a fun and educational environment with great trips outdoors which I think is excellent and is attentive to development opportunities and logs these, so I never feel I miss out on important milestones. Emmie is a kind, patient person and OUTSTANDING childminder, the best by far in my opinion. I am so glad we found her as she has been a big part of our lives and will always have a special place in our hearts!

Thank you so much Claire, he certainly fitted straight in like one of the family and will always have a special place in the hearts of all those he’s spent time with and especially mine 😍
I have been using Emmie's childminder services for the last two and a half years. My 7 year old daughter attends, during the school holidays throughout the year.
I was actualled referred to Emmie, by 3 different people, including my daughter's pre-school at the time. She came with great feedback from people in the local area, when I was researching and looking around for a childminder.
Emmie accepts childcare vouchers as a form of payment which has been great for me as I get these through work.
My daughter enjoys the different age ranges of children that attend during the holidays, she has lots of people to play with. Every day spent there is planned down to the minute with activities, arts and crafts and things to do, she never complains she has been bored. Day outings are common in the school holidays and these are planned for the first part of the day either to the nature park, cinema, beach, picnics, garden centre or even a ferry ride across the Thames where they spotted seals in the water. I get so jealous when I hear of my daughters outings.
Emmie's setting is clean and safe, with a nice garden and plenty of toys. I would highly recommend her services and can honestly say I know my daughter is in good hands when she is there.

Thank you for writing this, I was truly surprised and proud at how many different people I know had recommended me to you and I’ve glad to be able to help out with the school holidays these last few years, it’s going to be very odd not seeing her this summer, she brings life to every day ☺️
