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.

Emma has been our childminder for the past 6 years. She has looked after all three of my children. My youngest is 2 and my 2 older children are still cared for by her in their school holidays and look forward to their time with her.
I can honestly and openly state that she has been brilliant.

I would not leave my children with someone who I thought did not have my children's welfare as their first priority.

Being a working Mum is tough and there is always some kind of guilt to deal with but Emma makes life easier by being honest, friendly, helpful and flexible, entirely professional and always happy to accommodate our childcare needs. I have never had an issue with fees or her time keeping.
Emma and her whole family have become our friends over the years. Her children are friendly and polite as is her husband. She also has a lovely friendly collie dog!

The bottom line is that I would not fail to hesitate to recommend Emma as a childminder. I know that the children in her care are happy,safe and well looked after.

My two children have been with Emma for 3 and half years now. I have found Emma's whole family to be welcoming to my children, myself and my husband. I find Emma approachable and honest, any issues ( of which there have only been two) have been addressed and resolved quickly with a happy resolution for both parties.

Emma is highly thought of by children and parents alike, and comes highly recommended. This was evident to see when seeing Emma with the first ever child she looked after - who now has a child of her own. The children all play well together and have a variety of activites to do after school. Throughout the holidays they have days out, and my children always enjoy there time there.

Emma will always contact me straight away if there is anything she feels I need to know about my children and I trust her 100% with my children

When I asked my children for three words to describe emma without hesitation they both said - nice, fair, and thoughtful.

Emma accepts child care vouchers which are offered by most employers. As there is a slight delay in the vouchers being transferred to cash, I have arranged for Emma to bill me in time so she is paid by the end of the month.

Emma was my sons childminder for 8 1/2 years and I was very happy with her. I chose Emma because she provided a home from home setting for my son while I was at work.
My son has special needs and she was very supportive of him and myself during and after the diagnosis process. If there were any concerns she had with my son, she would always talk to me in private and we would sort it out together.
My son loved going to Emma and would even ask to go there during the summer holidays when I wasn't working!
Emma has a lovely house and garden and her family are very friendly. There is a real fun / family atmosphere at her house which was very important to me when I was looking for a childminder. Her older boys set a good hard working example for my son and her husband was always welcoming and friendly.
Emma always got my son to school on time and she was never late picking him up.
When my son started a new secondary school, he needed to catch a coach. I would therefore put him on the coach in the morning and he would then meet Emma after school. This obviously reduced the amount I was paying Emma but she was very supportive of the new arrangement. when my son became more independent, he didn't need to go to Emma but she was great and said that if the situation changed and we needed her support again, she would be happy to help.
My son is now 13 -yep, an uncommunicative teenage; but he will still make a beeline to Emma if we see her when we are out and about and has nothing but positive things to say about his time with Emma.
I would defiantly recommend Emma to anyone looking for a kind, honest and reliable childminder!

I am writing a review as Emma was my childminder when I was attending secondary school. I started with Emma at the age of 11 we had just moved to Yateley I didn't know anyone at the school or in the local area. Emma made me feel nothing but welcome and helped me with my nerves when i started school. Also I became good friends with Emma's children and remain friends with them to this day. I thought it would be a good perspective to see things from the childs view rather than just a parents. I am now 19 years of age and I have lots of happy memories of the time I spent with Emma and her family. Emma's husband Matt was sometimes home from work before my mum collected me and he was always very kind and helpful. I took Childcare has an option at school and did my work placement with Emma because I think she was such a good example of a childminder. My brother also went to Emma's with me and again was very happy during his time there. I actually have a little girl of my own now, she is 3 months and I have taken her to meet Emma already. If I ever never need a childminder in the future for my daughter I would have no hesitation in using Emma. I highly recommend her!

I feel strongly that I need to respond to a review that has been left on this website this week regarding Emma's care. Emma cared for both my children during their school years. My daughter was in Emma's care from the age of 11 until 15 and my son from the age of 6 until 13. I cannot stress enough how pleased I was with Emma's care for both my children during their time with her and my children were both extremely happy there. If I could address a couple of points that were spoken about in the previous review, firstly I completely disagree that Emma is motivated by money. Emma was always very relaxed regarding payments and I don't recall her ever once asking for payment early! There were certainly never any mistakes on invoices at any time. Emma clearly has a real love and passion for looking after children and I truly believe that is her motivation, both my children adored her and still do. I can also honestly say I never once had any problems with my children being late for school, they were both always on time. Also there were never any issues with my children being collected from school on time and they were never left in the playground last to be collected. My son was actually a very sensitive child while he was at primary school and he would have been devastated if this was the case and would of certainly have told me. Both my children never had any bullying problems with Emma's children, in fact they would still class them as friends. Emma's children were always polite and friendly and as for Emma's husband Matt having anger issues, this would almost be laughable if it wasn't so spiteful. He is possibly one of the most loving fathers I have ever met and is extremely placid and friendly at all times and I really do not believe that he would threaten violence to anyone. I have never witnessed any type of anger from him and again both my children thought the world of him. To sum up I would highly recommend Emma to anyone who wishes for a caring and homely enviorment for their children. Emma not only looked after my children after school but also in the school holidays as my children enjoyed going there so much. And she always was wiling to help at short notice if I needed help with childcare. I am astonished by the bad review on this site and find it very spiteful. I would only ask that you at least go to Emma's home and see for yourself what a friendly and loving environment it is. In fact my daughter was so fond of Emma and her children she still visits them now.
