About Me

I am a friendly, flexible and understanding ofsted registered childminder. Turtle Childcare Ltd is based in Blakelaw and has a dedicated play and Learn area within the house and full access to a lovely garden to engage with nature on a daily basis. We also have 2 loving Guinea-pigs and a fluffy rabbit that are handled and fed daily by the children.

I work with 4 lovely assistants, allowing us to be a little more flexible than the average childminder.
My professional experience covers ages 6 months to 12 years and I have two lovely girls of my own aged 11 and 7.

Sessions for settling in are not charged at turtle childcare as we believe both you and your child should feel 100% comfortable before making the important decision.

DBS, first aid that can be checked at any time and references on request.

My Experience

I previously worked as a nanny from March 2019 - April 2020 for various families and volunteered in a Primary School for 1 year improving the children's reading skills. I have been registered with Ofsted as a childminder since Aug 2020.

My Qualifications

Pediatric First aid certificate, safeguarding children and introduction to childcare for childminders.
DBS status can be checked at any time.

All assistants that work at Turtle childcare are trained in safeguarding, first aid, food hygiene, FGM, prevent duty and have a fully enhanced DBS check before being left alone with any child.

My Availability

Our availability offers overnight care at present (8pm-8am) and Friday day care 6am-6:30pm. We are operating waiting lists for other days.
We have availability for school drop/pick up from English Martyrs and Beech hill Primary.

My little boy has been with Emma and her team at Turtle Childcare now for 5 months. Going back to work full time and putting him into childcare 5 days a week was a big decision (and worry!!) for me and my husband, but to say we (and most importantly he) are happy is an understatement. He has settled here so well, and comes home everyday full of exciting tales of all the fun things he’s done. Emma and her team are just brilliant at what they do and we couldn’t ask for a better place for our little man to be a part of : )

I have 3 children and Emma has cared for all 3. She currently has 2 of my children in her setting. My children love going to her home and emma makes there experiences fun and a home form home environment. Emma is very professional and flexible when needed. Lisa who works alongside Emma is lovely. Both ladies are professional and knowledgable. It’s comforting to know my children enjoy here, are looked after in a safe loving and comfortable environment.
I highly recommend Emma and her team

My son has being going to Emma's for nearly a year now and absolutely loves spending time there with her girls and can't wait to go back each time.
Emma is very friendly and trustworthy which has made our transition to childminders so much easier and stress free.
I couldn't honestly recommend anyone better as a childminder.

Emma is very kind, trustworthy and great with children. She offered to support us during this difficult time. My daughter loves her and her family, she settled since day one which was very surprising for us. She keeps my daughter safe and occupied with many creative activities. I couldn't be more grateful.
