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 couple of local childminders so the children can form friendship groups with others.

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!

My son started with Emma in March 2017. It was the first time I have left him with anyone after my maternity leave. Within a couple of meetings my son was holding his arms out for her which really made me feel at ease.

Emma has a lovely home with a nice spacious garden for the children to play in, perfect for the summer months. I have also met some of her children whom I noticed to be particularly well behaved and sweet.. always a good sign!

We are continuously updated throughout the day on an app called daily connect. Emma uploads pictures of my son throughout day, adds notes about what they have been up to, what he has had for lunch (A large variety of fresh lunches) and how much he has eaten, right down to how many times she changes his nappy. Almost as good as being there.

Emma is extremely flexible which is a god send for a shift worker such as myself. With a little bit of notice Emma always tries her best to accommodate my requests.

I felt very anxious about leaving my son but now I can relax in the knowledge that whilst I am at work my son is being taken care of and is having fun. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Emma for anyone looking for a friendly, flexible and reliable child minder.

We placed our daughter with Emma in September 2016 as we were very unhappy with our previous childminder.

It was a very stressful time and we were worried about the upheaval of moving our daughter.

However, we immediately felt at ease with Emma and our daughter took to her straight away, pretty much leaving us at the door on the first visit, which was a great relief!

Emma is warm and kind and fun and has a lovely, tidy and open home, with a garden where the kids can play.

They go on outings or to groups every day and we are always kept updated with what she has been doing each day either by being sent photos or updates on a special app that has been set up which really takes the worry out of everything.

Emma always makes sure to give us plenty of notice for any leave that needs to be taken so we have ample time to make arrangements and is always willing to be flexible when we get stuck with work or other things crop up.

Our daughter also loves Emma’s children and plays with them often which is really lovely.

I would really recommend Emma as a childminder and would happily give a direct reference to anyone interested in having her as their child’s carer.
