About this home

A happy, fun and creative setting in Brockham, Surrey. Focusing on the interests and abilities of each child, I aim to support them reach their milestones and develop new skills in an exciting, caring and fun environment. I include lots of creative arts activities to encourage young children’s curiosity, creativity, and imagination, and support the development of communications skills. I enjoy providing engaging activities for the children each day to spark their individual interests 😊

About our tiney childminder

I’ve set up my tiney home nursery to provide quality childcare in my local area. Our ethos is to be inclusive, kind, and for each child to feel comfortable, safe and happy in my care. I plan each day so that every child is able to follow their individual interests and talents, with exciting and imaginative activities. There is a colourful playroom in my tiney home, with a ball pit and lots of soft play equipment, this is always a favourite!

Unique highlights

Creative arts

I spent a decade working in the film, television and theatre industry as an actress prior to having my own children. I have experience as a drama tutor for children of various ages. I feel passionately about how important the creative arts are to children’s well-being, and we enjoy lots of arts and crafts, dancing and imaginative role play in my tiney home nursery.


We have an allotment nearby our home, which houses our friendly chickens. Visiting the hens is always a highlight with the children! During the spring and summer we use the beautiful setting of the allotment to grow our own fruit and vegetables 🌱 this is a lovely learning opportunity for the children to discover the topics of sustainability and the environment.


We have a newly decorated, colourful playroom for all the children to play, explore and learn. It has a large ball pit, soft play equipment, and different learning areas.

What others are saying about this home...

Leona Powell

Amanda is simply excellent. She is highly intelligent, good humoured, endlessly patient, kind, socially aware and a delight to be around. She has been brilliant with the boys in every way. She is always positive and engaging; she sets boundaries whilst still being fun; she is kind, warm and affectionate; she is calm and sensible when under pressure. She has been involved in every aspect of caring for the children, from baby care through to helping the older boys with reading and homework. When they were toddlers/ pre-school she arranged stimulating and fun activities for them, including both projects at home and external classes. She has always encouraged the boys to love stories and games, reading to them and playing inventive games with them from a really early age. She is excellent at managing all three of the boys together (not an easy task!), despite the differences in their age and characters. She is thoughtful and imaginative, always adapting to their changing needs and interests, and finding ways of encouraging them both individually and to enjoy doing things together. In short, she has been an absolute pleasure to have in our lives, and our whole family is incredibly fond of her. We cannot recommend her highly enough.
