"A fab childminder!"
review of Gemma Childminding - Childminder in Epsom
A fab childminder!
My daughter has been with Gemma for 4 years now, since she was 1 year old.
Gemma has a good rapport with the children and puts a lot of effort into finding different ways to engage and expose them to a real range of activities, such as Hobbledown, different play groups, arts and crafts and just generally getting outside. I love the way she introduces the children to a variety of different cultures, through stories, foods and crafts (Eid and Chinese New Year were my personal favourites!)
Gemma always kept me informed about different developments and achievements and what my daughter enjoyed playing with or doing. She has a great approach to discipline with the children, any issues that arise are always resolved with the child, but I was kept informed and we would also discuss this.
Gemma has been amazing as well with flexibility, particularly when it came down to late changes to shifts. When going through a tricky patch with the little one, Gemma always had a piece of advice or another technique to try, which was so appreciated! Gemma encourages good social interaction between all the children and the atmosphere at dinner time is a family one with all the children sitting together for dinner.
We were so lucky to find Gemma, as she has encouraged my daughter to build her confidence whilst also always being kind, caring and loving towards her.
My daughter settled very quickly with Gemma and has always been extremely happy to go there. Gemma’s home has always been clean, well organised, but most of all welcoming.
We’re leaving as the next chapter of school awaits us, but we are so so sad to go.
