Hello everyone and welcome,
My name is Emma, I'm 32 years old and I'm an OFSTED registered childminder in Falmouth. I've been registered since October 2016.
I have over 10 years experience within childcare from birth onwards. I am passionate about children and in my business, your child comes first!
Before I opened my own business I worked in a nursery for 6 years, before I left to set up my childminding business I was the baby room leader, I had however also worked in all areas throughout the nursery with all different ages of children from being a 2year old key worker to working with the pre-school children.
I've also been a nanny (I still am to one little boy) and I'm a babysitter too !
I like to think I provide a home from home feel, where children in my care feel safe and secure in homely surroundings, where they can express themselves in whichever way they like, feel happy and content, relax or play and where they can learn and develop at their own pace through an enabling environment.
The children in my care have a lot of fun while also learning. I provide a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities and go on lots of outings, we take trips to the local beaches, walks through the woods and gardens and have fun at the local parks. I enjoy planning each day with different activities and outings to stimulate your children where they have fun but are also learning. I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) principles to promote learning, development and care. I tailor each activity and outing to each individual child for their individual needs.
Level 3 Diploma in Childcare
Paediatric First Aid
Effective Safeguarding Practice
Food Hygiene Certificate
I also have additional training in many other areas and hold a full clean driving licence.
I am also a member of Quality Childminding in Cornwall
I have a lovely dog called Roxy at my home and she is 15 years old. She doesn't have much contact with the children although she sometimes comes out on outings with us, otherwise she is mainly in the back garden in her little house.
I can provide great references from parents on request.
Any enquiries or questions please feel free to contact me.
