About Me

Hello. My name is Emma. I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Knaphill. I am married and we have two sons Jamie who was born in June 2011 and Alfie who born April 2014. We also have a cat named Dori.

I enjoy taking the children to toddler groups and to the local library. I also enjoy being outside with the children taking them to local parks, feeding the ducks and going on nature walks. I like to take the children on outings when possible. Places we visit include Wisley gardens, Alice Holt, The Lookout, farms and Beale Park. I am very creative and enjoy cooking and doing messy craft and play with the children.

Emma is the best childcare provider I have ever has the pleasure to meet. I would never send my child anywhere else. My daughter absolutely loves her and she has such a lovely time with Emma. I almost want to keep having children so I can send them all to her. Cannot fault her at all.

We can't explain how fantastic Emma has been from when we first met her until our daughters last day with her. Emma looked after our daughter from just before she turned 3 up until 2 weeks before she starts reception, Emma is friendly, welcoming and extremely professional. When we first met Emma she talked us through everything and showed us all her accreditations ofsted reports etc. Her house is always lovely and clean. As a childminder Emma went above and beyond looking after our daughter, doing crafts, baking, taking her to gymnastics, play group and various other days out which Emma also didn't want any extra for this. She has taught our daughter how to write her name and learn numbers. Emma takes real pride in everything she does. She made a scrapbook of everything our daughter has done which is a real treasure we can look back on in years to come. Our daughter was so happy when it was time to go to Emma's and sometimes she didn't want to leave. We can't sing Emma's praises enough. Sometimes I was running late from work and I would let Emma know, it would never be a problem. If anyone ever asked us of a childminder we would highly recommend Emma!

Emma has been looking after our daughter for the past 12 months from when she turned 1 y.o.
She was the only childminder who I saw that I trusted straight away. She is very friendly, warm and professional. Emma has a great approach with children and she keeps daily notes of what the little ones have been up to, as well as a record of their general development and their arts and crafts portofolio.
Emma’s house and garden are lovely and clean; she prepares lunches and snacks; and organises a variety of daily activities for kids such as trips out, acrobatics classes, crafts and baking, and more - and it’s all included in her charges!
Emma has always been very corporative and mindful of my little one’s milk intolerance, and she’s has been a great help with potty training. She’s also been able to communicate really well with my daughter who often uses her second language.
My daughter always greets her with a smile, and hopefully we will continue using Emma’s help ad hoc in the future.
Overall, highly recommend childminder!

My son Callum was in Emma's care for some time now and I couldn't be happier with the way he was looked after. Emma gave him the attention he needed, was patient with him and for him it was like a second home.
I was very impressed with all the versatile activities Emma did (swimming, bouncy castle, walks, taking the kids to soft play etc) and the way she showed how much she cares and goes the extra mile in her job.
She was very often extremely accommodating and flexible to short hair changes, for which I was so grateful.
I just don't have enough words to describe how fantastic she is and I would definitely recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone.

I can't say enough good things about Emma! We travel extensively and make use of numerous sitters and child-minders around the world. The U.S. and the UK have given us the best experiences, and Emma is by far the best we've encountered. We had four children from two families with ages ranging from 2 to 7 years; numerous allergies, different nap schedules, a range of temperaments, and a complicated drop-off and pick-up schedule. To be quite frank, we'd been having difficulty finding someone to accommodate it all, but Emma enthusiastically and effortlessly responded to everything. She had an amazing and sparkling-clean house, and was a perfect communicator (especially as we were working to complete our plans). She provided meals for the children, and managed every pick-up, drop-off, nap schedule, allergy, and complication so masterfully that the children wish they didn't have to return home. Emma... you have our enduring gratitude and if we are ever even remotely close to your location again, we will work desperately to get you in the diary. If we could, we'd take you with us everywhere we go.
