review of Emma Samuels - Childminder in Bedford
Emma has been looking after our daughter since she was 11 months old, so nearly two years now. As our daughter went to Emma's from a young age we were nervous and worried about leaving her with someone we didn't know, but Emma was very quick to reassure and relax us. When we went to collet our daughter we saw how much fun she was having as she didn't want to leave! (got to be a good sign!) Emma has proven to us she is trustworthy and reliable. In fact she has gone beyond the basic childcare requirements, Emma has been a life safer on many occasions and we cannot thank her enough for all the support and help she has given us! Our daughter is treated as one of the family...Emma is like a second mum, they have a lovely friendship & bond.In this time our daughter has learnt to walk, interact, share with other children and learned many skills through play. Emma gets the children involved in many different festivals such as Mothers/Fathers Day gifts,Easter baskets, Halloween, Health week...This week our daughter had a brushing teeth exercise and this will be followed up by visiting the dentist too! My daughter also celebrated Chinese New Year in a Chinese Restaurant and wore the chinese hats. Our daughter has also learnt about fire safety and the fire escape route when a local fireman visited Emma's house. Finally our daughter's favorite day is farm day...she spends the whole day playing at the local farm or growing or picking the vegetables from their allotment. As I said Emma is amazing with the children and is more than just our childminder...I would strongly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good childminder.
