Emma has been looking after our son since he was just under a year old. Throughout his time there, we have seen him develop from a baby into a little boy ready to start pre-school.
Throughout the day we often receive updates on the activities that he has been getting up to, and throughout the year we can see his development through his learning journal. Emma often takes the children in her care out and about, whether on local walks or to toddler groups or soft play. She also has a large garden that the kids can run about in during the sunnier months. All in all, Josh has really loved his time there!

At first I wasn’t sure about 1) putting my 7 month old daughter in childcare and 2) what setting and environment would be best for her. And then we struck gold!
I can’t recommend Emma and her home highly enough. A childcare professional looking after her development - emotional, physical, intellectual - through outings, groups and home/garden play in the most loving and caring way, 10 hrs a day.
We’re always kept in the loop with what they’re up to with photos and messages as well as her learning journal.

If my daughter, 2 years later, has the choice of going to Emma’s or staying home, she always picks Emma! We definitely feel like the blessed ones being able to send our daughter to one of the best childminders.

Emma started looking after my daughter in year R and now she is going to the comp she no longer needs looking after by a childminder 🙃 the 6 years Emma has looked after lily have been great, Emma is always on the go. She makes sure the kids are never bored, she takes them out whenever the sun shines 🌞 frimley lodge, the lookout, blackbushe, different local parks. She has taken lily to the cinema several times and on rainy wet days Emma will bake or make soaps, tie die pillow cases, do gamma beads, art and craft. Your kids will never be bored with Emma.

Finding a childminder who we felt comfortable leaving our 2 year old boy with was always going to be hard, but the second we met Emma we instantly warmed to her and her kindhearted nature and so did our son.

Her house is always clean and well kept, with a lovely, well stocked playroom which our boy absolutely loved, and all her family are very friendly.

Right from the beginning Emma gave us complete peace of mind, and the fact that we used to just turn up to Emma's each morning, hand over our pride and joy and leave for work without thinking too much of it just shows testament to how confident and happy we were with Emma as a childminder.

I have been in contact with Emma daily receiving pictures of things they have been doing, and also been able to go to her for advice or reassurance on various things.

They would often go out to groups/soft play or make things at home for him to bring back which i loved.

Overall we would highly recommend Emma as a childminder and it's safe to say we all are going to miss her especially our boy.

Emma has looked after my three children for the last year and I've been completely confident that they've been looked after well. My little ones enjoy going on their trips and visits to soft play and visiting the farm at Tri-lakes - they've also loved playing in her garden and house which is well equipped with a range of toys.
I highly recommend her to anyone seeking childcare.
