Gemma is simply superlative with her care of my daughter.
I was nervous when first sending my daughter to Gemma. But I did not need to be, Gemma made it effortless and it has been ever since.
Her care of my daughter is amazing, she always ensures that my daughter is kept busy with lots of fun activities, she teaches her so much, even good manners.
Her setting is bright, clean and interesting. Gemma always goes above and beyond to have educational sessions ready for the children everyday. She takes them on different field trips, they take part in art, music, dancing, reading, learning numbers and phonics.
Gemma also provides healthy meals that my daughter actually eats. She even got her to eat food she would not entertain at all at home.
My daughter loves Gemma and really enjoys spending time with her during the week. Gemma really provides a home away from home and I just can’t compliment her enough on the standard of care she provides.
We are so lucky to have such a lovely, vibrant, intelligent, fun and caring woman as a role model for my daughter.
My daughter has been with Gemma for just over a year, in this time she has grown a huge bond with Gemma and the other children in the setting and I know that it's due to Gemma's caring, fun and stimulating setting. Gemma really plans out everything from monthly topics linked to regular activities, through to daily trips out and to various playgroups. I love how much time they spend outside doing different things, learning and having fun along the way. Her setting is always clean with plenty of engaging activities, it has access to Gemma's lovely garden and Gemma offers a variety of different foods for meal times - in amongst this she also provides a great routine.
My daughter joined in between lockdowns, after not spending much time with other adults or children her age it was a nervous time for her but Gemma's childminding experience has really helped her to grow in confidence and each day she comes away smiling after having a wonderful time - I can't thank Gemma enough and would highly recommend her setting.
Gemma looked after our son Rocco from the age of 12 months to 3 years old.
The prospect of having to leave Rocco at such a young age broke my heart and until meeting Gemma, I wasn’t sure I could go back to work. From the moment we met, she was extremely professional and organised and yet incredibly understanding and caring. Rocco settled in immediately and in fact it was probably a harder adjustment for me than him. Every morning Gemma would have activities and toys laid out around the theme for the month ready to stimulate the kiddies and Rocco would be welcomed at the door not only by Gemma but also by her gorgeous and incredibly caring and polite son Kai, who Rocco still sees as his buddy and big brother today.
Most days we would get picture updates of what Rocco had been up to which always included trips out whether it be to toddler groups, nature walks, the library, or more of an excursion to a fun park all while learning about the world. We were always kept updated and felt like we were involved in his day.
I was amazed at the amount Gemma could get through in a day, what Rocco would learn and all the fun the kids had together while keeping an immaculately clean and organised house.
Gemma shows great creativity in the activities she organises and we have had some amazing pieces of art that we still have up on the walls today.
The food Gemma prepares is always fresh and healthy and I never had to be concerned about Rocco getting his 5 a day! Gemma is a fantastic role model and someone I admire and have learnt such a lot from myself.
Rocco has so many special memories of his time with Gemma, she has really helped to shape him into the boy he is today which we will always be grateful for. You couldn’t get a more professional, organised, fun and caring childminder.
Gemma looked after our daughter Beatrice from 12m - 19m (when Gemma went on maternity leave). We had just moved to Twickenham from living overseas, and despite the huge amount of change Beatrice was experiencing, she settled very quickly which is credit to Gemma. In particular, I think her calm setting and manner, great homemade healthy food, and structure to the day really helped Beatrice to feel happy and comfortable.
Gemma has created a great environment in her home with lots of age-appropriate toys and activities, and plenty of space to play indoors and outdoors. I also really liked how Gemma took the children out and about to local playgroups/music sessions, and to the shops/school pick-up etc. It helped Beatrice to interact with other children in larger groups, and get used to normal day-to-day activities. She is incredibly organised and professional with her paperwork - as a parent, I really appreciated getting a written report when I collected Beatrice each day detailing her activities, food, nappies etc.
I really could not be happier with the care provided by Gemma and would highly recommend her to any family looking for excellent childcare!
Gemma looked after my daughter Capree (2 year old) 2 days a week. Capree loved going on those 2 days and would also ask to go more often. The childminding setting is perfect for small children. Gemma is an amazing childminder, who spends time working on what the children focus on, on a monthly basis which makes the learning really fun for the kids. Gemma also takes the kids on regular outings for exercise, fresh air and exposure to different settings. We moved house which is why we are no longer with Gemma, but we wish we could have taken her with us.
