About Me

My name is Estelle Lawrence, I am a Ofsted registered Childminder located in Middlecroft, Staveley. I have 2 daughters Sienna aged 10 and Scarlett Aged 3. We live together with my husband Richard who works in adult education. I love working with children and encouraging their learning and development.

I have created a separate purpose built playroom filled with both educational and fun equipment. Inside there are different areas to encourage varied skills from creative play to numeracy and literacy. The garden is an enclosed and a safe environment with toys for all ages. I plan to cover different topics each month such as family, treasure, growing, and transport making the children’s learning exciting. I also have transportation for further excursions to places like Graves park, in and Sherwood forest.

I live in a detached house in Middlecroft on a quiet cul-de-sac which is within a short walk from Speedwell infants, Staveley Junior School and St Joseph’s primary School. We live close to St Georges Play area which has two separate enclosures for different age groups. We also live within walking distance of Poolsbrook country park, jolly pirates play centre and Staveley library.
