I have been taking my daughter to Gems since she was 7 months old. The things that ticked the boxes for me was the warm welcome I got from the start.
A very nice house ready for playing with children all ages, also has a garden. She met Ofstead requirements. I eased my Daughter into going to Gemma's with a few half days to get to know her and for my daughter to feel comfortable staying full days. I met some of the other children who are extremely pleasant and get along with each other. I left knowing she was in good safe hands.
I got to bring back paintings they did and occasion cards and gifts. Gemma also filled in a little day book I got to take home after every day so I got to read what days she has had.
No problems overall very pleased

Gemma looked after my little boy from 10 months old when I went back to work until he started school and I can honestly say with no doubt in my mind that this was the BEST place for him. Gemma gave me the confidence needed to leave my son whilst at work when it was something I was not looking forward to doing and I can not thank her enough for making that transition a good thing and not something forget.
My son thrived there, learnt so many things and when started school was at the top of the class for ability after such a perfect start.
Gemma not only provided a really wonderful start in education but did so many extra things with the children and he used to really look forward to going in a morning which was such a wonderful feeling.
Not only was Gemma there for my son she provided so much advice and support for me when it was needed, I really could not of asked for a more wonderful and caring child minder, every child and parent means something to her and that really is something special.
I have another child on the way and am hoping that when the time comes for me to return to work that she has space available because I really can not imagine my child being anywhere else but here.

Response by Avatar for Gems Gems on 28/01/2016:

Thank you for all the wonderful things you said, it makes it all worthwhile when a child I have cared for is thriving at their next stage in life. Always holds a special place in my heart as my first ever Mindee!

I use Gemma's childcare services for all my 3 boys aged 7, 4 and 5mths and they absolutely love going. Gemma has brought my eldest 2 on so much educationally and has done wonders to their levels of confidence. They have so much fun there that they can't wait to tell me all about it. Gemma goes above and beyond what's required from a childcare service and really takes care of all my boys. She is also very professional and flexible and has always tended to our needs even at very short notice. Gemma provides a childcare service second to none and my boys absolutely love going.
