West Runton childminder celebrates 10 years of looking after children
A north Norfolk childminder has celebrated 10 years of service with a party for all the children she has looked after.
Glynis Kemp, who is a childminder at The Dollshouse in West Runton, first set-up as a childminder in January 2001, and over the space of ten years, has worked her way up to be an accredited childminder in the north Norfolk area, meaning she can take children up to starting school, without the need for them to go to a separate nursery.
To celebrate her special anniversary, she arranged a party at West Runton Scout Hut.
She said: 'Without doubt it was an emotional time as I saw children that had long left me and gone on to school, including some of my earliest charges, who are now in secondary education, as well as renewing friendships with their parents.'
Entertainment came from West Runton Puppet Theatre who arranged an interactive show with the children, and a storyteller.
