About Me

I am an Ofsted registered childminder living in the N1 area, close to Essex Road station and New North Road and on the 21 bus route.

I have been a registered childminder since 2003.

I am also registered as a home carer which means I can provide care for children in their own homes.

I am also an NNEB qualified nursery nurse (Level 3) with 27 years childcare experience. I have worked in a variety of settings and with babies and children of all ages.

I was inspected by Ofsted in December 2018 and I was rated Good.

I am a mother of four, aged between 24 years and 12 years.

I am DBS checked, a non smoker and live in a nice, ground floor property with a large fully enclosed garden. I have a friendly, gentle 9 year old cat.

I am up to date with all training including Paediatric first aid/lifesaver and safeguarding.

I take children out daily to local stay and plays, parks and other local places of interest, such as feeding the ducks or the library. We also have play dates with another local childminder so the children can form friendship groups with others.

My Experience

I have 27 years experience in a variety of settings, including day nurseries, school nurseries and working with families as a nanny. I have been a registered childminder since 2003.

I now combine my role as a childminder with working as family support worker part time.

I have experience with all age groups, from newborn to teenagers.

I have lots of experience of working with children with special needs.

I have experience of working with vulnerable families and supporting children affected by imprisonment.

Emma cared for our daughter for 3 months. Sadly we had to leave London sooner than planned. We are so sad so have to say goodbye to Emma and her family.

Emma has been an absolute godsend to us. As first time parents we have been so grateful for her guidance and support. She is very friendly and kind and our daughter adores her.

I wholeheartedly recommend Emma to any parent looking for a caring setting for their little one. I am not sure we will find anyone else like her again!

Emma has looked after our son three days a week for almost a year, since he was one. We were initially tempted to go with a nursery and are so pleased we didn't - Emma provides such a nurturing, positive and fun environment for children. She gives individual care and attention to each child and they form strong bonds with her as she is so kind and caring. She has treated our son like part of her family and put me at ease immediately - she is incredibly experienced and a safe pair of hands. Her home also has a beautiful spacious and contained garden which the children can play in every day - it is a perfect environment for little ones!

The children she looks after learn manners, eat healthy food together and get on very well. They go out for lovely activities every day such as visiting parks and playgrounds, seeing ducks, even going to Museums and other play areas. We would have loved her to look after our son for much longer but sadly moved house.

Emma is also very flexible, reliable and great with communication - provided regular photos of our son playing and reassured us with photos when he was settling in and might get upset at drop off that he was honestly fine a couple of minutes later. If you are considering Emma as your childminder I wouldn't hesitate - we were so lucky to have her look after our son and couldn't recommend her highly enough. Thank you so so much Emma!

After looking after my first son a few years ago, Emma now looks after our second son which in itself says it all! We wouldn’t have asked anyone else.

Emma is a lovely, caring childminder who has taken really good care of both of my children. She has a lovely home with a garden (my son loves playing outside). She keeps us updated with information and photos. She is very flexible which is amazing when you work shifts especially if they change last minute.

I honestly cannot fault Emma and would recommend her to anyone looking for a childminder. I will definitely be back if I ever have anymore children in the future.

Emma was great from the start. My daughter immediately got comfortable in Emma's home. With our first meeting she was already playing with her daughter and Emma.

My daughter did two mornings a week. Her house was very spacious amd suitable for children. Her outdoor garden was great for the kids to play in.

We was always updated through out the day what she ate, how many nappies, what she had done and pictures.

Highly recommend Emma and hoping to go back there soon.

We were really lucky to find Emma here as our nanny didn't show up and it was really a last minute arrangement!
So Emma was looking after our kid who is a year and a half old for three long days!
I was a bit anxious on the first day because its a new place for our boy to stay, so I've asked if Emma could send me and mum regular updates / images during the day of our little one. And he took it like a real champ and I must say was very very happy :) The next day I felt really confident leaving our little one with Emma as I think she really enjoys her time with kids and they feel it too!
Also there is a really cool outside garden that our kid enjoyed a great deal!
We don't eat meat, and I was pleased to know that Emma will meet our dietary needs!
Emma is a mum herself and I think thats really important to do a great job a s childminder!
We are really going be seeing Emma more often in the nearest future!
