About Me

Hi, my name is Emma Raine and I'm an Ofsted 'Outstanding' Childminder. I've been working with children for over 25 years and Childminding for 15 years now! I live with my husband and 15 year old son in our lovely big home in the Old Town, Hemel Hempstead. I offer home from home childcare with lots of fun and love thrown in!!

In January 2020 I gained my 3rd ‘OUTSTANDING’ grade in my Ofsted inspection. Please, please read the report on the Ofsted Reports site. URN EY294982

In my home I have a large dedicated playroom that holds fantastic resources and toys. I have a lovely huge garden with great outdoor equipment! We welcomed our puppy (Winston the Cockapoo!) into our family in February 2019, the children absolutely adore him! We also have 6 friendly pet chickens which the all children help out with day to day feeding and egg collection duties!

We visit fantastic toddle groups in and around Hemel Hempstead most of the week and are part of great Childminding network groups. We also visit parks, forests, Soft play centres, farms and go for regular wellie walks with our friends. We also love to visit our local Library and garden centres as we love to be out planting flowers and growing fruit the garden.

Emma is an excellent childcare provider. The children’s best interests are at the heart of everything she does. Such warm care, in an amazing set up. The household always feels full of the greatest happiness. My child skips and sings on the way to Emma’s setting, always leaves happy and has plenty to tell me about her day.
The weeks are well structured, full of lots of different activities to suit all little people. Communication is well documented, so you can keep memories along the way.
We are elated to have Emma as our childcare provider, if you are lucky enough to have her too, she will be a welcomed addition to your child’s life.

Emma is an outstanding child minder and has looked after my 4 children over the years. I have had good and bad experiences of childcare in the past but Emma is brilliant in every way. My youngest 2 are still with her, 4 and 6, and cannot wait to spend extra time with her in the holidays. There days are fun and educational and I know they are safe, secure and loved. Thank you Emma, don't know what I would do without you.
