About Me

Hello! My name is Gina Edwards, I am an Ofsted registered childminder. I set up Little Adventurers five years ago because I am extremely passionate about children and learning through play.

I live with my two sons aged 10 and 12. We have two lovely cats called Star and Mrs Christmas, and a tortoise called Elvis. We live in sunny Leigh On Sea in a spacious home with a garden.

I love to explore the outdoors with the little ones, we often grow things in the garden and go on lots of outings. I am ideally located very close to Chalkwell Park and a short walk to the beach.

I am from a creative background originally and make use of lots of different medias and really enjoy making lots of art and crafts with the children.
I also do lots of messy play activities around my weekly themes and enjoy baking with the children too.

I provide home cooked healthy meals.

I run a small setting where each children's individual needs and interests are valued and nurtured.

I returned to work after both of my boys were born, so I understand how it feels to leave your child in someone else’s care. I will work with parents closely to reassure you every step of the way.

My aim is to provide your child with an environment that will be safe and caring but also really fun and stimulating!
