About Me

Hello my name is Gemma and I live in Amersham Buckinghamshire.
I am have three daughters 17, 10 and 4 years. Being a parent myself I understand the importance of finding of childminder that is not only safe and reliable but understands the uniqueness in each child.

I am only available to drop off and collect from Little Chestnuts, Chestnut Lane and also Elangeni schools at the moment.

I trained to be a childminder and became registered in 2018 I can honestly say I have never looked back. What I do each day does not seem like a job to me I love getting up each morning and seeing all my lovely little faces come through my door. Each child I have looked after I have always kept in contact with I appreciate each and every single one of them individually. I am most comfortable when I am around children I am a big kid at heart myself but I also take my job very seriously and want them to get the best out of what I can give them in all areas of learning to get them ready to go to school and exceed and become confident as growing individuals.


I am always trying to find new ways to help the children learn and get the best out of my time with them ensuring an activity rich and fun environment. I have a dedicated play room inside my home for the children to play and I have a safe spacious garden.

I am enjoying to continue my learning knowledge of children and working my way through every thing I can to be my best at what I do.

I offer freshly cooked home made meals should they be required. I thrive myself in offering the children a home from home environment, somewhere they can learn, have fun and be themselves.
Please message me for availability.

Gemma has been my daughters first and only childminder since she was 13 months old. It was a bit daunting experience to leave the little one with someone else other than family! But Gemma has literally been a god gift who made the whole process so smooth and full of joy. Gemma has a lovely set up where the children are exposed to a number of toys, books and other resources and takes lovely care of my daughter in all possible ways. She is very keen on cleanliness and manners. She communicates very well about child's progress and gives a clear idea (about feeding, nap times, activities done...etc.) how the day was spent. My daughter is always excited to be with Gemma and returns home as happy little girl. She always finds time and helps us when we really need her. In these 2 years, I have never faced any problem with Gemma! Highly recommend Gemma's childminding service!

Gemma is the most kind and warm childminder i have met. She has been extremely flexible with my requirements. As a single mum, I knew I could count on her to provide the same love to my daughter while I was at work. I will recommend her 100%.

Gemma is not just a childminder, she has become part of our family. Being both doctors, she helped us during the peak of the pandemic and looked after our 4 and 2 year old with love, care and flexibility. She kept them safe, happy and fed! I trust her 100% with my children, and they have developed tremendously under her care. She has looked after both for a year and I know I cannot find better care anywhere. She has all the qualities required and more to provide love for children.

Gemma is literally golddust! My son was - and still is - a very shy and nervous kid. Thanks to the pandemic he didn't get the social interactions he should have in the first year of his life which left him having severe attachment issues. When I found Gemma I immediately felt at ease in her company and my gut instinct was right. The progress she has helped make with my son is beyond my wildest dreams a few months ago and she genuinely adores him as much as her own! Its the most reassuring feeling and enables me to be more productive at work cause I know my son is in the best hands. I couldn't recommend Gemma enough for everything she does every single day.

Gemma looks after my little boy. Straight away she put me at ease leaving him there. He gets so excited as we pull up. Always comes home such a happy boy. She goes the extra mile, we even recently got a home made card with him hand print for Easter. I Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!
