Early Childhood Care and Outdoor Education

Little House of Gems is an early childhood setting offering a home-from-home setting for your little treasure.  Grown from the dream of a working mummy, at Little House of Gems I am committed to ensuring that I can give your little one a bespoke curriculum and nurturing environment which meets their individual needs.

Little House of Gems is an Ofsted registered childminding setting in Ashby St Ledgers, nestled between Rugby and Daventry, it’s perfectly located for families in the surrounding villages and for those who commute to London from the local stations. Little House of Gems is inspired by my love of teaching and working with children, my passion for nature and exploring the outdoors – whatever the weather – and my commitment to keep the early years curriculum unique.

I'M PROUD TO OFFER THE CHILDREN WHO JOIN ME:

  • a warm and welcoming home environment with caring, responsive adults who are dedicated to establishing strong relationships.
  • daily experiences rooted in nature; I am dedicated to providing children the chance to immerse themselves in nature through play, creativity and freedom in the natural world. Part of every day is spent at our three acre outdoor site where our sessions are guided by the children and inspired by the forest school ethos.
  • an opportunity to plant, grow and eat homegrown produce from our allotment.
  •  a dedicated and well resourced playroom inspired by Reggio Emilia and Montessori  pedagogy.
  • a child-led and nurturing environment where children are acknowledged as unique and who’s needs are met.

A hello from me, Gemma

Mummy to the gorgeous Alba, our three year old daughter, and to the menagerie of dogs, chickens and horses that make up our family. 

After an extensive teacher career, followed by a  few wonderful and enriching years at home being a mummy I have decided to combine my two passions and offer a Early Childhood Care at home as a childminder. 

I could chat forever about my setting, my inspiration, my passion for keeping the Early Years Foundation Stage unique and child led but it's probably best that you come and meet me and see our home setting for yourself - I can't wait to show you around.

A SPACE FOR YOU, WITH NATURE, NURTURE AND MINDFULNESS AT THE CORE

Little House of Gems Forest Tribe, stay and play sessions,  aim to give you experiences rooted in nature and inspired by the Danish concept of hygge [hue-gah]; a sense of warmth, cosiness, well being, belonging and contentment. Underpinned by our love for nature, nurturing communities and for living in the moment we are committed to curating retreats, workshops and classes that will appeal to your wildside. Our sessions are delivered from our countryside retreat which is snuggly nestled in the beautiful village of Ashby St Ledgers in the Warwickshire.  

Our sessions pivot around the principles of creating a spaces which juxtaposes with the stresses and tensions of modern day life and focuses the little things we can do to bring a sense of calm to the chaos that we sometimes find ourselves surrounded by. So, whether you opt to join our forest tribe stay and play sessions, our mindful dog walking gatherings, yoga retreats, nature craft workshops or our anxiety busting workshops you'll be greated with our hygge essentials: an open welcome, a cosy fire, a cup of something warm and a yummy treat to eat. 

 

**Under 2s are free to all sessions with a paying older sibling. Under 2s without an older sibling are more than welcome but please be aware the sessions are better suited to walking children (however, remember they are as much for the adults as the children)
