General Details

I live with my husband and am a mother of 3 children( all boys!!) , and 1 grandaughter.  Our youngest is homeschooled. I also work with my mum (Christine) as my assistant. I work from a purpose built cabin in the garden. I would like to offer families an opportunity for their children to enjoy a home from home environment while their parents are working. I am a registered Forest Childcare Provider, we enjoy being outdoors at the woods, beach, zoo, park and having lots of fun in our garen.  We attend the zoo and gymnastics club weekly, along with a curiosity approach inspired playgroup. Ialso attend a childminding support group regularly. I have a well equipped cabin which is suitable for all ages. We have lots of inside space for when the weathers isn’t so nice outside and a lovely enclosed garden.

30 Hours Partner Summary

The best Childminder you can have
Emma has been like family to my children.  She is an expert childminder, inspires creativity and exploration in children under her care.  She is so much more than a normal childminder and goes the extra mile to give children lots of variety, learning and caring guidance.    My son has always been so excited to be going to her - What more could a parent want than a child that is so comfortable with their carer.  Leaving me happy to go to work knowing my child is enjoying their time away from me.   She has a very outdoor focus allowing children to explore the environment and get out in the fresh air.  I cannot rate her more highly.  Both of my children have been under Emma's care since 8 mths and she is part of our family now.  I could not have worked without her.  Thank-you Emma for being in my childrens lives.
