Ms Emma Gardner

Hi, I’m Emma Gardner and I’m an Ofsted registered childminder in Ferndown. As a Mum to 3 young children I understand the pressures of finding good and reliable childcare that compliments your own beliefs and principles. It is therefore my aim to provide a stimulating and fun environment for children of all ages, whilst keeping that home-from-home feeling. We live in a lovely bright, clean and modern house, which backs onto a small woodland area where we regularly spot local wildlife. As we have our own young children our home and garden are safe and secure. We have a dedicated play area with a range of age appropriate toys along with lots of outside toys and equipment, including water play, vegetable pots, sandpit and mud kitchen. I’m Paediatric first aid trained and have a Level 3 Award in Home based childcare. I’m a Pacey member and hold public liability insurance.
