About Me

My name is Emma Alexander, I am 38, live with my husband Martin and we have three daughters Dylan 14, Riley Mae who is 6 and Hayden Esme who is 3. All my girls attend Bede Academy. I offer a safe, fun, warm, loving home environment for all children I care for.

I have been a childminder for 14yrs. I chose to become a childminder after being approached to care for a preterm baby boy with special needs who's parents really didn't want anyone else. He is now a happy, healthy 14yr old boy and I have never looked back since. I offer healthy home cooked food and encourage healthy snacking, although the odd biscuit will creep in every now and then. I enjoy nothing better than bringing the children into the kitchen and getting them involved with cooking, also love digging in the garden, planting seeds or just going on mini-beast hunts. I can and will accommodate any special diets or needs required by your child. I am willing to continue with any routines you have already established as I understand how important these are to your child's wellbeing and will integrate them to my setting. I have resources to provide for all ages and developments required.

We live in a semi-detached house on the South Beach estate with open plan living space/play room geared entirely for the children. We have a dog called MoMo, three hens called Chicken, Noodle and Soup. We have a good size back garden where we have a ball pool, climbing wall, trampoline, water play plus lots of outdoor toys and a fantastic Mud Kitchen with plenty of mud for pies.

My Experience

My 2 girls enjoyed being looked after by Emma for a number of years.
What can I say about Emma?
Being a single mum and registered nurse working shifts, means I can say Emma is very flexible.
My girls thoroughly enjoyed, whilst in Emma's care being 'part of a family' which embraced all the normal activities you'd expect within a loving, caring family:
Beach, woodland, garden, park and other outdoor activities.
Regular, well balanced nutritious, tasty meals and snacks.
Help and assistance with school homework and extra curricular school activities, and provision of lots of other learning experiences/activities.
And perhaps most importantly being respected and loved as a valued member of the family group.
Would definitely recommend Emma to other families looking for these qualities in childcare provision, When you can go to work without worrying about the children, you know you have the best in childcare.
Thanks Emma for all you've done.
