About Me

I am a fully qualified, Ofsted registered childminder living with my husband and two children in Caterham Valley. I live in a smoke free, pet free (apart from our outdoor tortoise) three bedroom house with a large spacious garden with a newly added climbing frame/ swing/sandpit combo in a safe gated area.
I am within a two minute walking distance of St Johns Primary school and cook all meals fresh from scratch even using herbs from our herb garden :)


My Experience

I have always had a career in childcare, starting in a day nursery before working as sole charge nanny for the last 13 years. I have newborn, twin, and special needs experience. I’ve looked after children as young as 6weeks old up to teenagers. Managing and caring for all their needs during their developments.

Having my second child has lead me to change paths and become a childminder so that I am able to work from my own home. I am fully set up to have children play, learn and sleep at our home with cots and own room being used for sleepers. I have a great knowledge of the local area and facilities knowing which playgroup/ music class/ playground are appropriate for each age.

Emma is fantastic with our daughter (16 months old ) she is very professional and our daughter loves going to her house. She does lots of fun activities such as drawing and taking her to feed the ducks. We also had christmas and Valentine's cards made for us by our little one which was a very nice surprise.
She also provides all the meals and our daughter really enjoys it. We are very happy with everything she does and honestly can't recommend her enough. We have a very happy child thanks to Emma.

Emma is an amazing childminder. She has looked after our sons on many occasions. They settled with her straight away, which is always a good sign. They really enjoy being at her house, she always has lots of fun things for them to do, they also love her garden as she has an activity frame. They often don't want to leave!

I've always felt completely confident leaving my children with Emma. She is obviously very well trained and experienced , and provides a safe environment with healthy meals etc. While the kids definitely have fun at her house, she puts rules and boundaries in place for them. She is very reliable, is easy to talk to, and provides a really good daily diary so you know what they've been up to.

We are still relatively new to the area and were very lucky to find Emma. She looked after my 4 year old through the induction and settling-in period at St John’s School. She made each day a fun experience and gave him a home from home. Emma is trustworthy and reliable. Her experience was evident in the way she expertly engaged his imagination with play. She is every parent’s dream childminder.

Emma has been looking after my little boy (2.5 years) for the last 6 months. She is professional; disciplined and organized yet manages to bring so much fun with creativity and play. All the while giving a superb level of attention and care. Her cooked meals are delicious and her children are a joy to be around.
It is clear that Emma adores children and I would highly recommended her!
