Reviews

Below are the latest reviews for Emma Col. Please note that reviews represent the subjective opinions of other Childcare.co.uk users and not of Childcare.co.uk. Parents must carry out their own checks and references on childcare providers to ensure that they are completely happy before enaging in the use of their services.

Emma looked after my first born for 4 years since he was only 9months young and also had my daughter in her care since she was 11months for 1 year.(stopped because I lost my job but will return to Emma’s services in a beat when we need to)
During these years of care provided for my children, I always felt they were safe, cared for and fed very well with homemade meals.
There were many occasions when children asked to go to Emma’s house when they weren’t meant to, simply because of all the very many activities and also friendships they created.
Emma is not just a great childminder, together with her lovely family, they became friends and we very often have them mentioned by the children, they sure have lovely memories and we hope to make many more.
We didn’t know Emma before, we found her profile on this site, read the reviews and knew we’d like her to care for our son. We felt very lucky that Emma was able to provide childcare for him, I hope this review will help other parents also to find the perfect childminder for their little ones.

Emma looked after my son for 9 months from when he was 10 months. She was always very competent and understanding of his needs. Emma cooks home made meals, which he loved and always managed to get him to nap.
My son built a great relationship with Emma and always went happily into her house. The whole of Emma's family help out with childminding and my son enjoyed the relationship with them too. She is warm and genuinely interested in your children. She listens carefully to any information about your child and provides photos of their day. I always felt that he was safe, fed and happy with Emma.

Emma has been looking after my two son's since September. I have not worked for seven years, so I needed someone whom I could totally trust in everyway! During the time that Emma was looking after my son's, I have absolutely no complaints from them, nor have I had to ask her to alter the way she looked after them. I have complete confidence in Emma's abilities as a childminder in everyway. She is pleasant, cheerful and a enthusiastic person, with great care and attention to all the children she looks after.
I have no qualms in recommending Emma to anyone who is looking for a completely professional and caring childminder!!!

My youngest has been with Emma since 2015 and Emma has been wonderful with her and helping her grow. Emma is always happy and cheerful even when I'll. My daughter loves going to Emma and gets a different adventure every time.

I wouldn't have been able to work if it wasn't for Emma. I felt safe and happy to leave my daughter in her care.

I would recommend Emma to anyone needing childcare no matter what age the child. Emma fully accommodated for me if I needed to change a day and she had it available. She would always try to help anyway she can.

My daughter will miss her and her family when she is no longer with her.

When I first met Emma, I felt instantly at ease. She had a young boy in her care, who had only been with her for a couple of weeks. Emma kept on giving reassuring touches on the back and I felt that this displayed a warmth and natural empathy. She probably wasn’t aware she was doing it, but I remember thinking ‘this is just what I would do’ and it convinced me that Emma was the right childminder for us.

My daughter has been with Emma from the age of 10 months on a part time basis. She is now almost 3 ½ years old and I know that she is taken care of with love and warmth. At the moment, my daughter is an only child, so I love the fact that she is integrated into a larger family and gets to play with other young children as well.

Emma is always cheerful and I honestly don’t know how she does her job, but she just loves it. If you need a bit of extra time during the week, she will always try to help. I know that I couldn’t continue to work if I didn’t have Emma, as I have absolute confidence that my daughter is being well taken care of.
