About Me

Hi I’m Emma and I live in a lovely little cul-de-sac in Ferndown within walking distance to Parley 1st School, Longham Pre-school and Rainbows End.

Our home is bright, clean and modern and we back onto a small woodland area where we regularly spot local wildlife.

We have a designated play area with a range of toys along with a lovely secure back garden with lots of outside equipment, including water play, vegetable pots, sandpit, 2 storey playhouse and a mud kitchen.

If you would like your child to enjoy a home from home, child focused setting and enjoy local facilities such as Moors Valley, National Trust houses and estates, toddler groups and local parks then our setting is suited to you.

We also enjoy lots of messy sensory play, crafts, stories and music time.

I’m Paediatric first aid trained, L3 Safeguarding, L3 Award in Home based childcare. I’m a Pacey (Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years) I also hold public liability insurance.

My Experience

I have now been a childminder for just over 21 mths, awaiting my first inspection.

As a mum to 3 young children, I have experience in many different areas.

My Qualifications

Home Based Childcare L3, Paediatric First Aid, Safeguarding Level 3, Speech & Language in EY

Emma is a wonderful childminder, she is a very welcoming, friendly person and she is absolutely fantastic with the children. Emma looked after my daughter before she started School and she loved being with her and the other children. Emma would take them out on lovely day trips, have creative play, storytelling and have lots of imaginative fun!
I would strongly recommend Emma to anyone!

My son loves going to Emma. The activities she does and the fun he has means I can go to work and not worry at all. It’s a home from home,safe, relaxed,fun filled environment and I know he is receiving the best care I can find. Emma treats him like her own and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Emma has been looking after my son for 5 months. I was worried about how he would settle, but Emma planned a very gentle introduction which resulted in him not being upset at all and he absolutely loves going. He is always extremely happy to see Emma and Emma plans lovely activties that he enjoys. I would highly recommend Emma to any parent looking for a childminder.

Emma is amazing. She has looked after our son for nearly a year now and she treats him like her own. She's very flexible and does the most amazing activities and day trips nearby.
We couldn't ask for a better childminder and clearly Emma has lots of experience with a range of ages which is why we hope she can mind our son for years to come.
He's very spoiled when he goes to Emma and obviously enjoys being with her and her lovely family.

Our son started with Emma shortly after his second birthday and absolutely loves it there! It is a true home away from home environment in a loving family setting. Emma is so very creative in all areas and has really helped our son’s development. We feel well informed about his progress and all the activities he gets up to. Could not recommend more highly.
