Emma has a kind, warm and loving heart. She looked after my son for over a year and her flexible working made it really easy for me to plan her drop-off and my pick-ups around her time. Emma also helped out with picking up my son from school, and on Tuesday evenings, dropping him off for his Karate lessons, which without her support and assistance it would have proved extremely difficult for my son to attend Karate.

It was a sad moment when I decided to end the contract with Emma, which was due to my son now much older and capable and confident to come home from school on his own. My son really enjoyed his stay with Emma and got to know the rest of the family and no doubt, he will miss her dearly.

Thank you for all your support and kindness you showed towards my son and for looking after him in my absence. We will miss you Emma.

If you're looking for a child minder...Emma's your choice!

Regards

Emma has provided pick up and after school childcare for my daughter for the last two years and can whole heartedly recommended her. She provides a lovely welcoming 'home from home' environment and is great with my daughter who has always loved going even from the start. We no longer require childcare but i won't hesitate to use Emma when we need childcare provision in future.

Emma was great right from the start, I needed a child minder ASAP and Emma was really helpful and fitted me in straight away.
My daughter loves Emma and will even run up to her after school to tell her about her day!

Im sad for my son to be leaving Emma, I was always very happy and felt confident leaving him from the off even when he was upset at first, Emma would send me photos and videos throughout the day so that I could be reassured he was happy.
Emma has been super flexible making the juggling act between me collecting my older son from school getting my younger one from her as easy as possible.
The whole 'childminder' thing was brand new to me and a bit daunting before meeting Emma but I can honestly say to others now it has been a positive experience and I can thoroughly recommend Emma for the care of your child.

Emma has had my daughter since January 2017 and choosing Emma has been the best decision we made. She settled in well very quickly and loves the other children. I have really noticed my daughters development has come on since going to Emma's and I feel really comfortable knowing she is in a safe and loving environment when I'm at work. Emma takes the children to play groups and does activities with them which is lovely to see. Emma's house is exceptionally clean and all the children in her care are happy and play nicely together. I feel very lucky that we found Emma and really recommend her - in fact one of my daughters first words is Em-ma!

Emma looked after my son for a year after school care and pickup. During his time he really enjoyed his time with Emma. The home environment she provides is safe and friendly and very welcoming. I would have continued to use Emma for my childcare requirements for years had it not been due to relocation.

My daughter was incredibly clingy so I was quite nervous about leaving her with a childminder, but Emma took her under her wing and with trips to play groups, meeting up with other childminders and their children and lots of baking, my little girl came out of her shell! My daughter found a new confidence whilst in Emma's care which I hope will make her move to pre school a smooth transition.

I was left in a situation where my childcare had let me down and had less than a week to find childcare.
My little girl who was than 1 when she started was only upset for about a week and now always smiles when I drop her off and pick her up.
She has even formed a bond with another one of the children and will get excited when I say her name. I have never known my little girl to be happy to go to someone but she loves getting dropped off in the mornings so Emma must be doing something right!
Also my hours sometimes change as I am teacher and sometimes I need Emma to look after my little girl for an extra hour and Emma has always helped out :)
I would highly recommend Emma to any parent looking to going back into work - your child will be well looked after and most of all have fun and learn new skills too!

I was very apprehensive about going back to work after having my little girl and looking for a childminder was a dread to me. I came across Emma and we arranged a viewing, After seeing Emmas house and learning a little more about her and the way she worked i didnt have to look any further. My daughter started at Emmas and for only a week cried when i left her, now she even calls for Emma when we are at home (this is must be a good sign). Leyla is always happy and cheerful when leaving Emmas and i have not had any problems since Emma started looking after her. I feel Leyla has settled in brilliantly with Emma and is as comfortable there as she would be at home, i Also think they have both formed a bond that you would with a relative which is lovely to see. Emma takes the children to the farm and toddler group once a week which i was impressed with as i wasnt expecting this. She has a very good connection with the children and they know what is and is not allowed resulting in a well behaved and calm environment for the children.There has been many times that i have needed Emma to have Leyla a little later than usual which wasnt a problem, so flexibility is another of Emmas positives. Overall i am very very pleased that i chose Emma to take care of my daughter and would highly recommend her to any other parent/guardian looking for a childminder.
