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, our three amazing boys and our 2 dogs Marney and Milo. 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.


My goals

  • To provide a safe and secure environment which extends and develops all areas of a child’s development within the 7 areas of learning 
  • To enable all children to learn and develop their skills to the best of their ability.
  • To promote self-discovery, exploration, and curiosity towards learning
  • To maintain the standards and guidance set by OFSTED and to regularly reflect and develop my practice
  • To encourage children to explore the environment and feel comfortable with me and my setting
  • To provide a good working relationship with parents/carers and children
  • To ensure confidentiality is kept at all times


*15 and 30 hours funding available*

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.
