Little Explorers Childminding

Welcome to Little Explorers, where big adventures happen!

Hi my name is Jenny. I am an Ofsted registered Childminder in Wigan. I live with my husband Lee and children - Bobby and Daisy. I am level 6 qualified in Childcare. I have a degree in Children, Schools and Families. I have worked in Early Years for over 10 years and I have a Forest School level 3 qualification. I have lots of experience working with children from birth to 11 years old, my experience also includes building and cooking with children on an open fire, using tools with children and building dens.

I am Located on Howden Drive, off Poolstock Lane in the Hawkley Hall area. I have a separate playroom, lounge, downstairs bathroom, kitchen, undercover secure car port and a secure garden. We have 3 pets they are Nessie who is a Chinese water dragon, Slash who is a Leopard Gecko and Bandit who is a Degu. At Little Explorers we run, jump, climb, splash, play, pretend, learn, create, build, dance, cuddle, draw, make friends and most importantly have fun! We go on lots of walks around the area including the different flashes and the canal.

We are a family run team, my husband Lee is also a Childminder alongside me. He is new to the team and found his passion for looking after children through helping me while on furlough during the pandemic. He has lots of experience with looking after children from being the best Daddy to Bobby and Daisy. Lee is also currently doing a range of Early Years courses.

I also offer before and after-school care including pick-ups and drop-offs. See below for schools.

Breakfast will be offered to the children in the morning. Snacks and drinks will be offered to the children after school. 

I also offer holiday care and babysitting.

If you would like a welcome booklet, virtual tour of my setting, photos or we can organise a face-to-face visit, please contact me via the details below.
