I have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted and have a place available.
I am an Ofsted registered childminder/mummy located
in New Malden. I have three children, Paige 19,Harry 11 and Jack is 6 years
Paige is in Leicestershire at University.
Harry attends full time secondary school.
Jack attends Malden Perochial in Worcester Park.
My home is in an excellent position for commuters with good transport links.
We are also close to many local schools and nurseries for school runs.
Children in my care will experience mornings at playgroups, trips to the Wetlands Centre, the local park, Richmond Park, library, music classes and the local community centre.
We are an active part of the community and the community centre.
I own annual passes to the Wetland Centre and Merlin annual passes to visit the Sea Life Centre, Legoland and Sea Life Sanctuaries etc.
We regularly frequent these fantastic places as well as other developmentally stimulating places such as Hobble Down children's farm (formally Horton Park farm).
Indoor activities include messy play, cooking, arts and crafts, lots of fun toys & educational toys. We also have a dedicated cubby hole for indoor imaginative play and creativity.
My home is a non smoking environment and has been checked by a local fire safety officer.
I take on a low ratio of children to incorporate the care of my own children too.
This is the perfect way for us as a family to promote socialisation, sharing and caring for others as well as ourselves thus enabling positive relationships.
All food is home cooked and meal times are a social occasion designed to encourage communication and social skills. I also hold a 5* food hygiene certificate.
I have excellent references and have recently been CRB checked.
My home has public liability insurance with Sterling Insurance and I have childcare insurance with Pacey.
I have a large, child friendly, secure garden with an even bigger selection of toys/equipment for outdoor play, including a fantastic bouncy castle that is always a child pleaser.
We also have an extensive range of indoor toys to suit all ages and both sexes.
The children will have constant access to books and I regularly rotate toys and take the children to the toy library.
I have 3 children, I have worked with children for many years of all ages in placements of schools and private nurseries, Children Services, Catch 22, youth work, nannying/childminding and of course at my daughter's school since she first started 17 years ago. Working with children is my chosen vocation, I love it and always have.
I am constantly taking night classes and adding qualifications to my portfolio. I enjoy updating my knowledge and refreshing my cognitive ability. I keep up to date with all current policies, research articles and changes in government movements.

Emma is a warm and caring childminder who is highly skilled and capable. I have a boisterous son and she had no problem helping him to settle in and took it all of his bouncy behaviour in her stride. My son and daughter also loving going to her home and talk about her with enthusiasm and delight. She is fun and caring and completely trustworthy. She’s also highly reliable and is flexible being able to do extra hours when I needed them. Her home is child friendly and a lovely environment. She provides delicious and nutritious food. She also plays games and is a very fun loving and caring person. I can’t recommend her enough!! I’m so glad I found this gem!!!
We can't quite believe our luck finding Emma. She's become like a member of the family. She never lets us down, I can always rely on Emma to help me out at the drop of a hat, she is kind, caring & considerate, both my children adore her, it's always fun, fun fun at Emma's house! My little boy was really shy & clingy, not good around other people at all when he started going to Emma, I can't believe the difference in him in such a short time, his social skills, speech, confidence have developed beyond recognition. He gets to do so much when he's with Emma, she takes her mindees out to really fun, exciting & inspirational places & she also seems to have more to do at home in the way of equipment, books, toys etc than I have seen at any private nursery. There are loads of spaces & different environments to explore at Emma's, she has a great garden filled with lots of areas (playhouses, sheds, enormous sand pit, tents...you name it!)
I seriously don't know where she gets her boundless energy from. Keep up the good work!

Aww bless you, that is a lovely review.
Thank you so much.
Your little man makes it very easy I assure you!!
Lots of love
We have two sons in which over the years Emma has taken care of. We had tried other childminders in the past but, was never completely happy,so when we Finally came a crossed Emma, it was a total blessing. As a working parent you want to know that when you leave your child they are safe and happy. With Emma I know I can go to work reassured that my children are in an environment where not only are they happy and safe BUT, they are looked after as if they are her own children. They are given the stability of a daily routine, fun, learning activities and even cuddles when needed.
On top of everything Emma does for our children she is also great with us. She is very patient, always happy to explain ANYTHING to us and most importantly keeps us posted on how our boys are doing during the day. Emma's attitude to not only the children she cares for but to us, the parents is amazing and because she keeps us so well updated with what our boys are doing and learning it makes me feel like I am not missing out on so much with them while at work and for me this is so important.
For us she is Truly more then just a childminder and for that we are so grateful.
Emma has been looking after our two year old daughter once or twice a week for the last ten months. She is very professional, caring and has a really lovely and fun personality. Our daughter adores her and has learnt so much during the time she has spent with her. They do lots of fun activities (I'm sometimes jealous that I can't come with them too!) indoors and outdoors, Emma has lovely child friendly house and garden.
She takes all the of ofsted regulations very seriously and always follows the guidelines and advise which is all documented.
She is very reliable, trustworthy and amazing with kids. The best thing is that you can tell she really loves spending time with kids and makes you feel part of the family! Don't know what we would do without her!

I don't know what I'd do with your guys either!!!
Thanks so much for this.
It means lots and lots.
Emma is totally wonderful in every way - reliable, punctual, kind, thoughtful, tidy, loving and a truly good person. I recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone as my little boy adores her and has so much fun with her. I don't want anyone to steal her away from us though as I have no idea how I ever managed without her!
