Gems Childminding (Gemma Mack)

Here at Gems Childminding we have fun! we are silly! we explore! we imagine!

* Spaces available for all ages *

My name is Gemma Mack and I live on Cranfield Road, Hawkley Hall, Wigan. Just a small walk away from the canal and other woodland areas for some great adventures. I live in a detached house with my wonderful partner and our three amazing boys. We have a lovely spacious back garden which children can access at any time during their care to explore our many resources and promote physical fitness.


After high school I immediately began my journey to become a level 3 in children’s care, learning and development. I have had the honour of working in many childcare establishments and working under some extremely passionate managers with the goal to succeed in creating an outstanding environment for children to thrive in their abilities. It is with those managers in mind that I have the drive to achieve the same standards of care for all children and to guide them through their journey to become self-assured, independent and thriving members of our society.


I have my level 3 in children’s care, learning and development, I have an enhanced DBS and paediatric first aid. I have up to date training for food hygiene and safeguarding. I am always seeking to develop my skills and broaden my knowledge by accessing online training courses and attending courses relevant to early years. All certificates can be accessed upon request.


Aims and objectives          

I am committed to providing equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring every child is included and supported. My ethos is to ensure positive attitudes to diversity and difference, so that every child is included and not disadvantaged because of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, special educational needs, disability, gender or ability. I aim to enhance the development and education of all children in my care in a safe, secure and stimulating environment.
