About Me

My name is Gemma, I'm a 33 year old Ofsted registered childminder, I live in Coulby Newham. My business is called Little Gem's Adventures. I offer a warm, loving and safe environment for your child to be cared in. You will find my home to be a friendly and pleasant place for children to spend time where all children are treated with respect and valued as an individual. I also offer flexible childminding days/hours as I appreciate not everyone works standard office hours, especially key workers.

My Experience

I have a lot of experience of working with children. I’ve worked in a children’s nursery for just shy of 8 years, as a nanny for twin newborn boys for 10 months and I was the manager of an After-School club for 2 years. In addition to this I have many years of babysitting experience for all ages.

Learning through Play

I have a variety of toys, for both indoor and outdoor play, including educational toys, jigsaws, dolls, cars, animals, Lego and books etc. I also have a range of art and craft activities, children’s baking equipment and actively encourage the children to be creative.
I do my utmost to encourage learning through play.

My Qualifications

Advanced Apprenticeship in Children’s Care, Learning and Development – NVQ Level 3
Early Years Care and Education – NVQ Level 2
Certificate in Early Years Practice – CACHE Level 2
Paediatric First Aid Level 3
Safeguarding Children Level 3
Food Hygiene Level 2

My Availability

I work full time Monday to Friday but I'm also available over the weekend should you require these days.

My normal hours of work are 8:00am - 18:00pm, however I am willing to negotiate longer hours and/or an earlier/later finish should the need arise.

I am registered to care for children overnight if required and I also offer holiday care and babysitting.
