About Esme and Little Squiggles
Fully insured OFSTED registered child minder
CRB checked & First Aid trained
I am Esme a fully insured Ofsted registered childminder based a short walk away from the school in Downham Market in Norfolk. I am married and have 2 daughters aged 9 and 3 and a very friendly Springador dog called Rory!
My husband is a full-time (commended) police officer who is also registered as my assistant. We are both CRB checked and first aid trained.
We live in a 3 bedroom house with a good sized enclosed garden. We have a playroom with lots of toys, a child-friendly kitchen, a lounge mainly used for quiet time and a downstairs toilet. Our home is safe, friendly and we keep a strictly non-smoking environment. Our dog is well managed and although he is a very friendly family pet he is kept in a kennel outside and never comes into contact with the children unless parental permission is granted. We also have a cat called Molly.
Esme has been a registered child carer for 10 years
and during that time has cared for many children in a safe, calm, family environment
My aim is to ensure that all the children in my care have a safe, clean, happy and fun home from home environment so they can learn, grow and develop to the best of their ability.
I treat all children as individuals and encourage them to be confident and independent. I encourage them to try new things and I'm happy to supply materials if they suggest something new they would like to do.
Parents can feel assured that children left in my care will be stimulated, well cared for and happy. It is important to me that parents can leave their most treasured possessions knowing they are in safe hands and having a positive, enjoyable experience.
