About this home

A welcoming home from home setting in Annesley Woodhouse, close to Kirkby-in-Ashfield and Hucknall. We have a dedicated play room, with lots of exciting and engaging activities. I am a qualified level 3 Teaching Assistant, with 8 years school experience. I am passionate about nurture and helping children to grow and learn through play. We visit local playgroups, libraries and parks regularly, as well as some special trips throughout the year.

About our tiney childminder

I’ve set up my tiney home to be inclusive and welcoming for all families. I understand that this can be a daunting time for children and parents, so I will always aim to make your child feel safe and secure. We can tailor settling in sessions to suit your family. I am a child centred setting, I change activities regularly to keep children engaged and will plan future activities around the interests of the children. I have 8 years experience of working in EYFS, as well as 2 children of my own.

Gemma Gray

Carly is a highly experienced childcare professional who consistently provides a nurturing environment, in which children grow and thrive. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience of Early Childhood Development and the Early Years Framework. This, combined with her outstanding ability to support and meet the needs of all children makes her a brilliant practitioner. Carly is kind, caring and compassionate and completely empathises with parents, as a mother herself. At Hummingbirds Home Nursery, parents and carers can trust that their child will feel safe and secure with Carly. She is sensitive, responsive and creates a positive environment for children to explore, learn and experience joy.

Becca Haynes

I have worked closely with Carly for many years and I would highly recommend her for your child care needs. Carly is a patient, loving and caring person who always put the children first. She has a calming nature and provides a nurturing environment where any child will feel safe. She provides a loving and relaxed home from home for a child in what can be a daunting time. Her years of previously working in a school has provided her with the amazing skills she has to provide an environment which will meet your child’s needs and developmental stage of learning through play. I have every faith Carly is the lady for your child care needs and your child will blossom at Hummingbirds Home Nursery.

Karen Garratt

As a previous colleague, Carly has become a close friend of mine. She is one of the most reliable, kind and caring people I know and will always adapt appropriately for any child. Carly is calm and patient and I certainly wouldn’t hesitate in sending my children to Hummingbirds Home Nursery.
