Hi my name is Gemma and I am an Ofsted registered Childminder. I am based on the outskirts of the Gateford estate in Worksop, Nottinghamshire.
I offer full and part time places for children from birth to approx 11 years old, School drop off/collection and school holidays, inset days and space permitting I offer one off or emergency care.

 
I have over 17 years experience working with children and families and pride myself on offering a quality service that is full of play, fun and learning.
 
I have my level 5 qualification in Working with children and families, I also have up to date 1st aid and food hygiene qualification, plus many more that can be seen on request.

 
I have worked in a variety of different settings gaining knowledge skills and experience and now I am offering this within my home as a Childminder. It is important that children feel safe and secure in their environment so I like to offer a home from home environment but with the added advantage of a large selection of quality equipment that offer stimulating play and learning activities.
 
As well as activities around my home I have a designated play room where activities can be laid out safely for the children to have free access to. The children will also have access to a large outdoor play area with climbing equipment and ride on toys.
 

 
 
Each and every day is different and full of various fun filled activities to keep the children entertained.

 
 
 
I follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework (EYFS) to ensure that the children in my care receive the very best of care and education and a wide variety of fun and learning experiences.
