About this home

Welcome to Gingerbread nursery in a lively Hornsey neighborhood of Haringay. With both outdoor & indoor play areas, my home nursery has 2 dedicated playrooms, 2 terraces and a secure communal garden with a playground at its heart. Two parks are 5 min away. Inside the nursery, children get immersed into a range of sensory & messy play, from playdough, sand, foam & water play, to planting flower bulbs. In the kitchen children are often seen having fun making muffins & baking cookies together.

About our tiney childminder

I do daily storytelling, book reading, singing and lots of roleplaying. Children take part in child-lead activities using open-ended play resources (wooden building blocks, construction, magnetic toys, trainsets and puzzles). Equipped with Montessori knowledge, I use my creative skills with arts & crafts activities, using natural materials. I encourage all children to participate - for eg, painting stones, leaves or ice cubes, making paper houses, wooden/felt dollies and doing clay modelling.

What others are saying about this home...


Sarah Sears

Anita has been our childminder for the past year. She has been looking after our two-year old daughter. We're really pleased with the care our daughter received. She adjusted so well within the first week or so and has progressed enormously over the past year. Anita's setting has some fantastic set of resources. Her place is spotless, homey and welcoming. She gives plenty of one-to-one attention to each child, whilst being inclusive at the same time. I highly recommend Anita and her Gingerbread home nursery to any parent looking for truly quality care for their little ones.

Maya Harding

I was looking for an exceptional childminder for my two boys, a one- and a three-year old. From the moment I met Anita, I knew she would be the best choice for my children. She is really hands on and creative. She would regularly provide feedback and photo updates, which gave me a sense of reassurance. The meals and snacks she provides are always highly nutritious. My children thrived whilst in her care. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Anita.
