About this home

I'm Alice and I run STAND TALL tiney home nursery. A tiney home, where your little ones will be encouraged to stand tall, be brave and smile big. An engaging learning environment and a home from home, located in the peaceful town of Selby. Walking distance from local parks, schools, and the town centre. In this early years setting I approach learning through child and adult led play, with a range of toys, activities and crafting materials to support and stimulate their development.

About our tiney childminder

My tiney home is set up as a home from home learning environment, inclusive of different ages and abilities. Play and fun are key in this tiney home and self expression is encouraged and supported. I have a 3 year background in child care, working within different primary schools and a year spent supporting children with Autism. My bachelor's degree in Psychology has also provided me with a deep understanding of child development and therapeutic teaching and parenting styles.

Unique highlights

Healthy home cooking

Meals provided are all freshly prepared in house. Meal times are a prime time to learn, where children will be encouraged to learn about independence, healthy eating, and learning about the world.


I have a qualification in Makaton for professionals. This will be utilised within this setting to assist in the development of communication and understanding of language, which is a prime area of the Early Years Statutory Framework which I follow.

Self regulation

Our tiney humans are still figuring out how to manage their big emotions. In this setting they will be supported to express their emotions and regulate them, building their tool kit to deal with these emotions as they grow.

What others are saying about this home...

Vicky Hodge

Alice was a fantastic addition to the team, getting involved with the club and getting them engaged in the activities. The boys loved her! Her patience and aura of comfort was recognised by staff and children.

Denice Tune

Alice helped through a few summers looking after 3 of my granddaughter's, who can be quite the handful (7,11 and 13). She was patient and supportive. I could not recommend her more! Her approach to caring for children is wonderful.

Vicki Farrell

Alice has worked on a number of occasions in a voluntary capacity at the school where I work. She has worked with children in various different age groups from Nursery to Year 6.   She is incredibly well thought of by both the pupils and staff and we always look forward to her working with us. Alice always works in a professional manner and she enjoys helping children to achieve their own potential. Alice is kind, patient and nurturing in all aspects of her work.
