Emma Snowden

I have been childminding since 2008. I was inspected in October 2019 and retained my grading of Outstanding. I have a NNEB level 3 in childcare. I have recently been taking part in 'Every Child a Talker' and I'm an Early Language Lead Practitioner. I have undertaken another level 3 Inclusion called Play4All. This is to promote inclusive practice within the setting. 

How it works

On my registration I have 4 assistants. This is not to increase my numbers but more for your convenience. I use assistants so the younger children do not have to come on the school run in the bad weather and to cover me for any appointments I may have. My assistants can cover for me for up to two hours a day, however this is rare.

I attend current training courses to ensure my skills are up-to-date and cover all issues relating to childcare. I have a wide variety of toys, equipment and story sacks. I loan story sacks out to the parents so you can share these at home with your child. I work closely with four other childminders so we can support each other and draw off each others strengths.
