About this home

I offer a home away from home setting to allow children and their families to feel safe and comfortable. I have over 10 years experience working in Early Years including experience and training working with SEND children. I am a mum to a 5 year old and we both look forward to welcoming new friends into our home. Activities I enjoy doing with the children include story telling, singing, messy play, arts & crafts, and outdoor play. I offer flexible funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

About our tiney childminder

Originally from America, I have worked in nurseries in America and England as well as spending a year as an au pair in Ireland. I believe these experiences and my training as a Level 3 practitioner have shaped my practice into a holistic and play based form of learning. Upon becoming a mum myself, I began my search for a change. Being a childminder means I can still be a mum while still doing what I am most passionate about- helping children to build the foundation of their learning.

Unique highlights

Baking and Cooking

I enjoy cooking and involving my own son in helping to make meals or bake treats. I will encourage children in my care to join in in assisting allowing them to get hands on in the preparation of their meals. The children will get to explore a variety of dishes and gain life skills as they assist in creating these dishes.

Large Outdoor Space

I am a big fan of the outdoors and am happy to offer a large back garden full of mini-beasts for the children to explore. We often go on bug hunts using a kit and enjoy talking about the funny looking creatures we find. I also am next to Mote Park and look forward to going on nature walks and accessing this space throughout the week.

Out and About - Day Trips

We take regular outings to places like Buttercup Goat Sanctuary, Kent Life, Leeds Castle, the local library and museum. I believe these trips out help to further their learning and allows the children to take in all the community has to offer.

In this neighbourhood

I am on the edge of Mote Park and plan to regularly access this. I am also a short drive from Buttercups Goat Sanctuary and Kent Life which I also plan to use frequently. As I am also near to the town centre, visits to the library and the museum will also be frequent to explore our community and all it has to offer including local play groups.

What others are saying about this home...


Alyssa is simply amazing! Both of my kids love her and feel happy in her care, we’ve been so lucky to have found her. I highly recommend Alyssa!


I cannot recommend Alyssa enough and the care she provides. My little boy has been there for 2 months now and is completely thriving in the setting. They do so many activities all age adapted and I’m amazed at how far my son has come along in this time. So excited to see what else he gets up to.


My son has only had 1 day with Alyssa but after the 1 session i can tell so much care and attention she provides him/the children she looks after. I took him out of nursery due to the lack of attention from a busier environment and I'm glad i did. He loved his day, and was filled with fun and lots of learning! He is going to thrive with the help of Alyssa and i can not recommend her enough.


Our little one has been with Alyssa for almost a year now. As he was left in her care at a young age, we have managed to see him grow and progress with her as time went by. We are happy with the way he has been looked after so far: there are always activities to keep him entertained and work on his development at the same time. We like the fact that no two days are the same, they also have trips outside and we are kept informed regularly of what is happening and any milestones we might otherwise miss! Alyssa’s also been incredibly flexible with our working hours and any unexpected work situations.
