Emma Woods (Childminder)

My name is Emma Woods, I am 44 years old and am married to Pete. I have 2 children, Bailey and Molly and 2 dogs named Benson and Hugo who is very friendly. After 6 years experience as a professional nanny, I became a full time childminder in 1999 and was graded OUTSTANDING in my last Ofsted inspection. I was awarded a BTec National Diploma in Nursery Nursing in 1994 and have completed a NVQ Level 4 in Childcare, Learning and Development. My first aid, food hygiene and safe guarding training are always kept up to date and I have completed the first year of a Foundation Degree in Early Years through Huddersfield University. I provide Nursery Education and Two Year Entitlement. I have worked with children with additional needs for over 20 years and in January 2010 I was given an award for all my hard work, this means so much to me and my setting. I provide a childcare service from my home in Darfield.

Local Offer


I provide an inclusive environment, giving all children the opportunity to reach their full potential. All children require individual support, and for some this may mean adapting an activity or routine to the child's ability or stage of development, providing additional support and attention. 

Schools Extended Local Offer Response

How do we offer support to children or young people with a special educational need or disability?

All the children I care for are treated equally and fairly, regardless of their age, gender, ability, religion or race and they are encouraged to be tolerant and helpful towards those children who have additional needs.

Parent questionnaires are given out on a yearly basis where I encourage parents to be honest when providing information that may help me to improve my childcare setting.

What specialist training, experience and expertise do we have relevant to children with special educational needs and disabilities?

I have a good working relationship with my local Family Centre and know that they would support me to direct any parents that needed specialist services and advice me where they can go to get help needed.

I have worked with various statutory agencies in the past when caring for 3 children with disabilities over the past 20 years.
