About this home

I will offer your child a safe, welcoming, friendly exciting environment to play and learn effectively. Your child will be encouraged to express themselves in a positive manner, develop independence and maximise their potential through exploration, communication and physical development based on the EYFS. We will visit local parks, libraries and the museum as well as doing activities. I can also do local school pick ups and drop offs.

About our tiney childminder

I have 15 years of childcare experience ranging from nannying, babysitting, being a senior room manager in a nursery, to becoming a parent. I provide delicious, home cooked meals, I have an exciting outdoor space and I use makaton as another form of communication in the early stages of development. I am dedicated to seeing children thrive and develop well in a secure and safe environment by pushing and testing their abilities with a nurturing and caring manner.

In this neighbourhood

Popley is a lovely community with a very large park just on my doorstep. I am on Abbey Road, close to the underpath that takes you out into Oakridge. Then it's a short walk to town where we attend soft play in the sports centre, visit the Willis museum or feed the ducks at Eastdrop ponds. We also love going to the library regularly.

Anna Brazell

Emily is a very caring, enthusiastic childcare professional. Emily looked after both of our children from the age of 9 months old & built up a great rapport with them. She made their early years fun & encouraged their development. Our son took his first steps with Emily & both children grew in confidence & flourished in her care.

Charlotte Jones

Emily really is the person that every parent wants for their childcare. She is engaging , caring, kind and is so knowledgeable on the EYF curriculum. My little boy adored her and as a working mum, I had so much comfort in knowing that he was thriving in her care. The activities she planned were fun, educational and tailored to my little boy’s own development. I would 100% recommend Emily to anyone looking for childcare that puts your little one first and allows them to experience an exciting approach to learning, in a fun and safe environment.
