Emma Heckles

I offer ‘30 hours childcare for working parents’. 

My name is Emma Heckles, I am based in Consett and have three older children of my own. I have been a childminder for over 16 years and have two ad hoc assistants, who are available to help when necessaary.

We are trained in paediatric first aid, educated to graduate level, and provide a safe and happy environment for your children.

I have three friendly dogs, who are well trained and often accompany us on our adventures.

We care for children from the ages of 6 months to 16. Our main school for pickup and collection is St Patrick's RC in Consett, and usually operate between the hours of 7.00am - 6.00pm, although there is some flexibility based on your needs.

If you would like to discuss your childcare requirements, please just get in touch and we would be happy to provide advice, or visit my website.
